    I'm really frustrated by the large number of people in my building who think the posted notice about wearing a mask in the elevator doesn't apply to them. There are no consequences if they don't comply. There is also a strong sense of misogyny- it is a cultural thing. Sorry, people- I'm a nurse, so I'm going to call you out for not masking and I may or may not be too polite about it. The number of COVID-19 patients in the hospital where I work has gone steadily upward for about the past 3 weeks. Maybe a little longer. We also have more patients in the hospital in general. I've also heard rumors about scheduled procedures being cancelled again. We're back to strictly no visitors except for obstetrics. I know people are "pandemic weary", but it bugs me that my neighbors are letting their guard down. Not that it was ever up that high around here in the first place.
    Thank you for letting me rant,

    Good grief, that's horrible, Elyse! How thoughtless, and how ignorant, of these alleged-neighbors. Can you complain to the management, and if so, would they do anything?

    How many floors up is your place? Too many to consider taking the stairs instead, I assume? Especially if you're coming home with a bag of groceries or something.

    I hope something can be done to get these jerks to comply.

    So sorry to hear that! That is definately the last thing you need! I have no clue why people do shit like that. I guess some folks don't care about themselves or others, or there are those that think covid is big lie. Can you actually beleive that some people think there is no such thing as Covid?? I wish you safety, and I suppose you have to wait for the next elevator, hope they don't breath covid germs all over, or take the stairs. I do get the possibility that complaining can lead to even more problems sometimes. I sure hope that's not the case and that these people will change their ways. They are jerks. Well...... they certainly are. Wishing you the best ❤️💕👍🏿🤷🏾‍♀️😸🐶

    I'm on the third floor. There are six sets of 8 stairs each with a landing in between. Going down is harder than going up, not that either way is especially easy. Our custodian cleans the elevator once a week- which consists of sweeping the floor and taking a quick swipe at the buttons with a wet rag. I'm just really tired of pleading with my neighbors to do this simple thing. There are a few residents in the building who have serious health conditions and it's them I am most concerned for. It's been brought up to management and they have said that they can't force people to comply. It just makes me really mad.

    Bought a cement block to tie to the base of the cat tree. Weighs 80 lbs. at least we know the tree won’t fall over when she leaps up there now. Have fun.

    That should hold the cat tree in place! Good solution, mon.

    I was thinking the same thing- that sounds like a good solution!

    I love animals, but the wool at home is exhausting. Taking out a large vacuum cleaner, stretching the wire is already nauseous. That's why I bought a vacuum cleaner with rechargeable batteries just for small cleaning every day. Took Shark Navigator Upright Cordless Vacuum. I looked at this model in the review https://homemakerguide.com/best-cordless-vaccum/. In general, I like such useful sites where you can find the right things for your home, garden, garage and more.

    I don't want to celebrate Christmas via Zoom - I want to have it in person. But I'm starting to think that's out of the question for 2020. Way back in the spring I never expected to be in the same situation come fall. They might vaccinate health care workers in the first "wave" in Illinois. I'm a nurse, but I'm in the revenue cycle area (I don't have direct patient contact 99.8% of the time) so I might not be among the very first of the first. We'll see, though.
