There seems to be an onslaught of pandemic optimism. It doesn't leave much room for the rest of the human emotions — like sadness or anger. Right now, essential workers (and workers in general) have every right to be pissed. I share two stories from essential workers to highlight what they're going through and talk about how it's OK for all of us to feel angry right now.
Also, I offer a quick money lesson answering the question: What is credit, really? Credit seems like this nebulous idea that lives in the clouds. I bring it back to earth using the Gnaw Bone Store and a grocer named Billy.
Up next week: I talk about my first (and worst) job ever as a hotel housekeeper. There are some crazy stories in this one.
