Workers Comp Humor During The Lockdowns – Working @ Home


Workers Comp Humor Needed Now – My Major Accomplishment and The Theremin

OK, so my attempt at Workers Comp humor or any humor may fall flat.   Well, here it goes.   Also, my method for securing toilet paper after I ran out.    BTW, I am not a hoarder.  Four packs were the minimum order.

Major Accomplishment – Hopefully Workers Comp Humor

I was convinced that the toilet paper shortage crisis was a joke unto itself.  After six different shopping trips with no luck while my supply dwindled like gasoline in the 70’s fuel crisis.

Shockingly, some of the local stores in Raleigh had replaced their paper goods with other seasonal store items.  Uh-oh!  I had ordered delivered groceries from Aldi’s free with the first three deliveries.  I have an artificial heart valve.  I wanted to be very careful – maybe too careful = paranoid.

A search online revealed multiple gougers and overpriced suppliers.  RV toilet paper seemed to be all that was left.  Luckily, I found three rolls I had stashed for emergencies.  They were the local dollar store brand (uncomfortable) but at least I had a few left.

I was up at 4 AM due to acid reflux – Aldi’s has great hot sauce.  I decided to try my luck at 4 AM and there it was on Office Depot – but I had to buy a large amount.  I ordered it and Voila! it arrived after a few days.  Yes, the office supply stores put a few cases online almost every morning if you are an earlier riser or a night owl.


My overseas web consultant was laughing the whole time – he was the person that encouraged me to write this somewhat personal post at an attempt for Workers Comp humor.   Most other countries use bidets if available.

The Theremin

You may recognize the Theremin.  I tried to play one a few times.   I play guitar so I thought – how hard can this be?  It was extremely difficult.

The Google Doodle for today is the Theremin.  The Theremin was popularized by 50’s science fiction movies and the Beach Boys.

Google Doodle has brought back all their user-involved classics such as the cricket game that is so addictive.

In case you want to hear a good Theremin player with an orchestra check out this YouTube link. 

So, there are your workers’ comp humor breaks for the day.  Good luck. Be safe.
