Guess he has to wear the mask when he's coming off the plane, since he's still officially pushing masks on planes for the rest of us.

None of it makes sense, though.

the consensus of political scientist have concluded that being alone on a staircase necessitates mask wearing because science

How much you want to bet Biden put the mask on just before he deplaned?  Never miss a photo op.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

And then he took it off as soon as he got face to face with the South Korean representatives.  Makes sense.   :O =| ???

She thinks a dishwasher installation is a "vital repair." Guess she has no sink.

The dishwasher was too tall? Every house I have ever bought has what I thought was a standard size cut out under the counter. I would just order a new one from Lowe's when needed and install it. Maybe I was just lucky they all fit.

"The dishwasher was too tall? "

Yeah, I had the same thought.

Standard dishwasher dimensions are 24" wide, 25" deep, and 35" tall.

I don't know of any manufacturer that makes a dishwasher taller than that.

Not sure about "too tall", but I can easily see the contractors being fed up finding any excuse they could to get out of there (such as the insulation/trim being tight so the new unit doesn't quite fit without modification).  "Doesn't fit" might be one of those cut outs where they can leave and get paid for showing up while the homeowner can still return the appliance.

I've seen many kitchens that had a hardwood floor installed without putting it under the dishwasher making removal almost impossible. But I think they just got tired of her crap.

Yep, previous owners did that in our house.

In my house they put the dishwasher in the opening and then put the finish frame for the base cabinets over top of it.

Which locked it in place.

I had relieve the cabinet opening with a chisel and a hand plane to get the old dishwasher out.

I installed my current dish washer.  It just slid in.  It was pretty tight, but it fit.  I think the old one had more clearance on the opening.  The new one just barely fit. 

I was going to pay for installation, but the price for that has gone up.  If your connections are set up right, it only takes a few hours at most. 

Most home appliances are not all that hard to install if you don't have to modify the connections.  Biggest issue is if you don't know why certain things are the way they are, you might not set up or connect something that should be there.  In an old house, I forgot to knock out the blank on my garbage disposal for the dishwasher drain when I replaced the disposal.  Never knew why the dishwasher didn't work.  Realized it after replacing the dishwasher before I sold that house.

At the grocery just now, watched on of the local covid dancers going entirely beyond the pale of OCD on wiping down a shopping cart.
 
That had been outside.

The security guy was watching another guy who was wearing a hood, under a hoodie, which covered the forehead and cheeks, mask for the lower face, and sunglasses... Along with blue gloves. Hoodie was zipped. There was a messenger bag worn on the chest.
 
It was about 90 degrees and 99% humidity today.
 
Security guy did NOT look amused.
 
Security guy was most definitely not a white redneck.

St. Louis City update...
 
The media/headline stuff says that the Covid Risk is high.
 
About the only folks I see masked are the Young and Enlightened. And a few scared older folks. Very few.
 
Oh, and the ones wearing hoodies and sunglasses at night.
 
Had a group of kids come in the store the other night like that... Stendos poking out of the hoodies.
 
"Don't even try it."
 
They left.
 
The Weather Channel and the City website numbers are closer together. Since the start of the shenanigans, the number of people listed as having died with the bug in the City is approximately 800.
 
That is 0.25% of the population.
 
No idea what percentage actually died FROM it.

I've seen a few HiPoints too... Those things appear to be pretty heavy, and add to the sagging factor.
 
Right about now, most folks seem ready to hunt down and skin the folks who have been jacking the Hyundais and Kias...

We have them back in park in front of the store, and as soon as they walk in, they get stared down.
 
The one batch was all wearing black hoodies (90 degree heat), hoods up, black masks on, sunglasses, and a blue glove on the right hand. Weird. Almost like the 1980s/1990s again...
