It would have been cool to start a journal at the start of stay-at-home orders... but I didn't. I'm starting to document the response to lifting stay-at-home orders in the Greater Kansas City Metro Area. A lot has happened that I will continue to process. One thing is clear: the events spiraling around me are entirely out of my control. All I can hope for is the presence of mind to address each challenge with patience and fortitude. Writing is a great outlet. Please enjoy.

That's all set up! Let's dive deeper together... next time. 🖖

Sprint World HQ is also referred to as "The Sprint Campus". The layout closely resembles a college campus. There are brick buildings scattered across a sprawling landscape of manicured trees, lawns, and fountains. It could be considered an idyllic workplace environment. Look past the veneer and you will find corporate greed, social irresponsibility, toxic interpersonal dynamics, and deeply rooted class division. It's a pleasant place to be a terrible person.

On Monday I showed up to work to find these signs posted at every entrance. I slipped on my mask and entered, careful not to touch the door handles. Within less than 5 minutes I observed close to 10 people without masks. Some of those people were my fellow Aramark employees clocking in for work. Using the same time clock I use. A touch screen. Down a narrow hallway. Next to a commercial kitchen. What can go wrong? Right? -mobile

I work at Sprint World HQ in Overland Park, Kansas, USA. Sprint was recently acquired by T-Mobile. Many things are co-branded at this point of the transition. Sprint and T-Mobile have not asked their employees to return to work here. I am employed by Aramark, a contracted vendor handling Business Dining. My job title is Master AV Technician. I make the AV do what she does. -mobile
