    Hi @CARL58 - I'm very sorry to read about your loss, & can only agree with your sentiments. As my son was walking home from work last week, he rang to say about the abusive customers they'd had in the food outlet shop he works in. He was sworn at by people not understanding that they had to limit the number of people in the shop at any one time. He also said he'd just heard of the death of our vet's husband, who was also in his 40s.
    We'll all be glad when this is over; such a terrible loss of life everywhere. Yes, the guidelines are there to keep us all safe, & should be heeded. Pleased you are both safe, take care.

    Sorry for your loss. I'm on day 43 of lockdown and most definitely taking it seriously as is most people. Are always some who think the rules don't apply to them.

    @CARL58 I think the majority of people here in the UK are taking this very seriously, personally I know someone who has had it and someone who has died from it.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hello. I am also very sorry to hear of the loss of your cousin.

    Yes, like you, we are also fed up of lockdown, but that is the better option.
    People should not be silly and break the good work done by sensible people.

    It's appalling that customers would treat them that way @chiarieds - I'll never understand some people.
