    Looks like someone is bored... so, why not come to the hillbilly board and throw some love our way?

    My practice has gone to a skeleton crew and a 3 day work week. We’re trying to navigate through advice from HR and our accountant to determine what is best for our staff and for the partners.

    The partners are going to skip being paid in this pay period to keep our outgoing cash flow down. We’re trying to give our employees 2 week coverage to keep them with us and out of unemployment for now. We have hope that the relief bill will be helpful for our practice. But, we ain’t generating revenue sufficient to stay out of the red for long.

    I called landlords yesterday to ask for a delay in payment of May’s lease til the end of the month to help our cash flow. Each of our landlords were understanding. We’re frantically trying to cut costs by canceling many services to our offices for now.

    I have to be honest, this hasn’t been an easy thing for me to go through.

    I’m glad to see most everyone come to the thread to let me know how y’all are doing.

    Sorry to hear things are getting so rough. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this is all over in weeks, not months, as the president has stated.

    Glad your landlord is understanding. I saw an article in the DP about a landlord threatening to evict residents during this crisis without due process. Some group from NC that bought a trailer park, jacked up rent, and now preemptively threatens their tenants.

    I'm still doing well. My test was negative for COVID-19. So I'm still working all the'll let me.

    Good luck and God bless you all.

    I talked to my mom tonight. How scared are you guys of this pandemic? Not just for yourself, but for loved ones or friends? While I've been told that COVID-19 is a 60% chance of death for me, but I'm more concerned with friends and loved one who are closer to 100%...

    I just heard a rumor that Pitt has developed a vaccine.

    I'm afraid that we will all have Pitt in our blood in the future

    Yeah, I heard that too. The legal disclaimer is, "Those allergic to shit should avoid taking this vaccine."
