Default How socially distant are you? (Poll)

I thought I was doing great at social distancing, and a phone conversation with a friend made me realize maybe not - she's much better than me.

So, I'm going to rate myself a 3 on a scale of 1-5, and ask how much better/worse than me, you are.

I'll leave a 42 as well, which is intended for people that can't fairly be rated against me - people like NerdAlert, who is a foster parent and legally has to let people into her house. I'm sure there's many other scenarios that can't reasonably be measured against me.

Below is 100% of my personal contact in the last ten days. Days where there's nothing listed means that I never even walked out the front door. Nobody has been in my house. I haven't taken had any food delivered. When I've gone out, I've reasonably avoided contact, but no face mask or gloves.


Fri Picked up friend* and went to grocery store
Sat walked to CVS (Walgreens, Rite-Aid, etc) and 7-11
Sun
Mon
Tue went to 7-11 and saw gf
Wed
Thur Picked up friend* and went to grocery store
Fri
Sat picked up food from local restaurant
Sun

*he doesn't have a car and is afraid of getting in a taxi


Poll: Please select
1 - I'm much more socially distant (limited contact) than Westley
2 - I'm somewhat more socially distant than Westley
3 - I'm about as socially distant as Westley
4 - I'm less socially distant than Westley
5 - I'm much less socially distant than Westley


Of course feel free to share any additional detail, like your logic (obviously people in NYC or who live with elderly relatives might be even more careful, etc).

It's at the top? Did Covid make you blind perhaps?

I've been to the grocery store once per week, and went to home depot yesterday. Stopped by to pick up some paperwork on Wednesday, and have met a handful of people at the door to grab deliveries.

My wife is a Vet and is working, but they are having people stay in their cars so only the pets are going in/out, and all of the staff are wearing masks/gloves.

Wouldn't you be more free and breezy with just the robe and no boxers?

I’ve been to the grocery store a few times and walgreens once, picked up food twice at small local restaurants, been through a drive-thru once. I’ve gone to my mom’s twice but won’t go inside anymore so just have been dropping stuff off at the door. Oh and went to Office Depot once. I guess I really haven’t been doing so well. At least I e been wearing gloves and a mask each time. But still. Need to be better.

Wife is currently grocery shopping for first time in quite a few weeks.

No food delivery.

That has been it. Haven't even really taken a walk for leisure, but weekend weather has been crappy.

I gave myself a 1
