So, it's hit rock bottom now, at least as sports are concerned. The lineup this morning on ESPN were:
National Rock skipping Championship
World Cup Stacking Championship
Nation Sign Spinning Championship
World Hamburger Eating Championship
Bratwurst Eating Championship

OMFG! What the hell has happened? If this is what we're reduced to watching while we're trapped in our homes, people will be killing themselves before the end of the week! Maybe these sports become entertaining after you've downed a bottle of tequila.
But seriously, show a rerun of some championship baseball, football, whatever. What's next, beer pong, and bottle cap championships?  God help us all.   :panic2ay!

ESPN now has the Cherry Pit Spitting Championship airing. The action is riveting.   :dizzy:

Time to go back to work and face this with bravery.  Keep your distance, and stay away from the elderly and infirm.

Amidst all that is going on, I start my truck this morning, and I hear loud squealing under the hood. I figure it's the idle pulley, and sure enough when I look, I see pieces of plastic coming off the middle of it. Along with a ring of melted plastic on the frame below it. This, out of nowhere. No warning beforehand.
Thank goodness it's still turning, and the Ford dealer is open for repairs. It's a real simple repair, but a limited staff means it could take all day, or even into tomorrow. At least I have no where to go for the next few days.

Pulley had to be ordered from Harrisburg, PA. Seems it's something that isn't replaced too often, along with most dealers being closed. Should be fixed tomorrow. At least I have nowhere to be.

Got the truck back today, no charge.   :phew  The pulley was still covered under the powertrain part of the original warranty.

Btw, has anyone noticed lately an increase in the lawlessness of people driving? I see examples all the time now. No one is stopping completely at stop signs. From slowly rolling through, to completely ignoring them. I had a car come right through an intersection while walking around my neighborhood.
And everyone is racing around like chickens without heads. Zooming in and out of lanes, not looking or signaling. Been almost hit too many times now for it to be a coincidence. Maybe if these people take off those stupid masks, they can seen where they're going.
Going through the lights at left turn lanes, because they're too impatient. Backing out of parking spaces without looking behind them, and etc., etc.
Everyone needs to get a grip on things.

That is my normal commute

The fast and the furious, I just keep my distance from them and give the right Of way to them

I drive to Jersey City twice a week and I go though the Holland tunnel
