COVID-19 has taken from all of us this year.
For Victorians it took seven months of normal life. For NRL fans, it took eight weeks of crowdless footy. And for 908 Australians, Covid took their life.
We have all been impacted in some way by COVID-19, whether it be the loss of a loved one, the loss of day-to-day living or losing one of the estimated one million jobs made redundant due to the spicy cough.
This is made even more tragic as research by the CSIRO shows that today marks the projected date that you would have quit your job had you not been made redundant due to COVID-19.
Copywriter Aslan Gabir is one of the roughly one million Australians made redundant due to the economic downturn that the LNP assures us is due to Covid and nothing else.
“It sucks because today is the day I was definitely going to quit,” stated Gabir as he played with his pet dog that he was slowly starting to resemble.
“Give my four weeks, spend two of them on Christmas leave, do two bludgy weeks back where I forget to do my handover docs. Happy days.”
“Really start 2021 with a commitment to finishing my screenplay, 10,000 words a day, that sort of thing.”
Unfortunately, Gabir was denied the opportunity to quit his job in spectacular fashion as Covid showed him just how unimportant a person on mid-five figures who fusses with words for a living really is.
“Today was going to be the day that I definitely did it, I just know it.”
