Tommy Jackett: [00:00:00] Very low barrier to get into the drone squad. We've
Josh Janssen: [00:00:07] committed to do the daily talk show for 10 years. I had guys
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:10] put it in the calendar.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:12] I just like to check the temperature in the room. I told you my squeegee
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:15] story.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:20] It's the daily talk show episode 959.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:24] What is happening? What's going on? Groks how
Josh Janssen: [00:00:27] are we? Uh, to speak a little French, it's feeling a bit, uh, deja VU, the French, I don't
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:36] know, but it is fair that you're going to say, Jenna, say it's a bit fucked here in Melbourne. Love big Mac, you know, that reference
Josh Janssen: [00:00:47] loving mail to French big Mac.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:50] Isn't it pulp fiction, just to sustain out a pop fish. You wouldn't have seen it. It's a great film. One of the best nights. Uh, no, it is deja VU, Joshua Jansen, because we're back into a lockdown here in Melbourne. Third, third time, third time lucky or, um, or not, I mean, there's nothing lucky about another lockdown.
Well, it's only
Josh Janssen: [00:01:11] a five days I'd like to call it, uh, uh, the long weekend.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:16] Yeah, except, um, people like
Josh Janssen: [00:01:21] weddings, birthday parties
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:25] going on there. So it's Monday. Um, we found out last Friday, lunchtime. I think it was that there'd be a snap lock down from 11:59 PM on the Friday night through till Thursday. Well, we could go back to work the following Thursday.
Um, I mean, for us, it was bodies' birthday, the following day. I mean you'd bought his present.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:50] Uh, yeah. Cause I had to go to Craigieburn to pick up those, the only one place that I could get what I wanted to get in. And, um, yeah, so that couldn't do that for that we had,
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:04] we had like. 50 people coming to the park on the Saturday.
And this kid has been talking about this party for months. George is sad. He's thinking, Oh, so sad. I'm thinking, Oh my God, it's sad. When you start thinking about it, a little kid, who's just going to be crying, like thinking about all the horrific situations like funerals, et cetera. But there's something about.
In your mind thinking about a little kid and how they don't understand anything. Um, anyway, we, uh, we throw him a surprise party on the Friday night with the neighbors at our house and it went well. It went well.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:42] Yeah, talk us through it. And so how did you, because I didn't realize you were getting food delivered, uh, to the office, but on Friday I was very happy with the fact that there was Mac and cheese that would potentially go to waste.
And I I'm, I'm not a wasteful guy. I tried to help
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:01] put it this way. We're saving. I think it was $300 in catering, but. Well, you'd already had already received a majority of the catering. So we got to feed all the kids with Mac and cheese. Um, rice paper rolls.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:19] Where's this from, can you say where it's from?
Cause it was delicious.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:23] Uh, it was just some guys that own a cafe next door to I Amy's work and they did the catering for us. He's a great chef and um, and we just got him to do it for bastards. Had to, yeah. Two jobs canceled the following day, but so we've got at the moment about 40,000 premiers at our house.
Um, we have Coke, zero kombucha, um, and about seven, seven kilos of Mac and cheese, which, um, you got into on Friday, but this all I've been eating. I don't know if I'm flat because of the weekend and the lockdown or because I. Have eaten that much, uh, sugar that was meant to be a part of the, um, lolly bags from the potty
Josh Janssen: [00:04:05] account.
Work it out. What sort of lollies did you have?
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:09] I might Amy, when I say she's went overboard. But it's an overboard in adult's eyes. Kids she's a hero, but it was a trolley lollies burgers, those little mini Bergen's, sow worms, everything, Molly pops, multis everything. And so I can't tell. I mean, what's your vibe?
How are you feeling about it? Or are you flat? Cause we're not in the same room right now. Yes.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:33] Um, uh, the thing I think, um, you can get into habits very quickly and you can like, obviously, because it was a Valentine's day or was also meant to be, um, you know, like lunar new year celebrations or that sort of thing.
So I don't know if you saw on Instagram, everyone was posting it's like support local businesses order. Food. If there's one thing that if I had one skill, it would be ordering food. Um, and so, yeah, we, um, we did a fair bit of eating, but the other thing is like, um, the other thing at a hot cross buns, I don't know if it's too early.
But I've gotten back into hot cross buns.
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:14] Uh, nothing, nothing good comes from getting back into hot cross bonds. I, we ate a whole two, four, eight pack last night, um, at, at a time it's 7:00 PM, which is not a time that on a Sunday
Josh Janssen: [00:05:27] is this earlier than what we used to do. Like, because obviously, um, the classic joke was, you know, the day after Christmas you'd look and there was already hot cross buns meant for Easter, but you wouldn't actually buy them.
Uh, is this unusual for you to be eating hot cross buns in fab?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:46] Uh, well, for us as a family, I mean, we'd like it, but yeah, it is unusual, but I bought them in her wild spending spray on stuff. I mean, Amy's mom flew down from Sydney on. Thursday night last week. Yeah. And then the lockdown happened. And so she surprisingly was able to go home.
And so she flew out yesterday, we drove it to the airport, which probably wasn't what you meant to do, but there's no one in the roads anyway. And so, and, you know, sucks shit situation. It was bodies' birthday yesterday on Valentine's day. Um, but she was able to fly home and then has to quarantine until the end of Melbourne's quarantine, which.
At that from a house, which could be if it was
Josh Janssen: [00:06:32] to be extended, because this is what, um, if, if it were to be extended, if it were to be extended
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:39] at this point, that wouldn't worry. Wouldn't worry me either one. I get the point.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:44] Thank you. Um, yeah, so she would have to stay locked down for that entire time.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:50] I don't know.
Imagine if it goes into months and then next minute. She's had to stay home. She comes to Melbourne for three days, four days, and has to stay in a house for four weeks. I don't know. I couldn't imagine, but it is. I mean, how different is it? Um, a year later, because last year buddy's birthday, his party we'll talk.
I was talking to a guy about him quarantining and so it's. 100% digest cause it's, we're back at it. And it definitely feels different in, in regards to the, um, just having an understanding of what it all means. And you just back to it, you're not thinking about what you need to do. I'm being pretty lax though.
Not in terms of like going to shops without a mask, but it's, it seems so backwards. Half the shit bottle shops are open. Gyms are closed. Like ruin your immune system or, you know, strengthen it at the gym. It doesn't like, that's where I am. I'm watching myself. Cause I could easily just go full right-wing right now.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:58] Like you would easily, what do you tell Bodie? Like what is like when it came to canceling the potty? Because you, you did a great video on your Instagram account where you, um, you filming the surprise. Did he know before the surprise that the birthday wasn't happening
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:16] now? Barry delayed. Very delayed. Um, you know, you don't tell your girlfriend, you get a dumper and then dump her, you know, a couple of hours later, you just, you break it, you break it to them in one moment.
Yeah. And so, and maybe you take him out for dinner the night before, so they feel like everything's cool.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:38] That's it? That's the surprise
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:40] party. Yeah. So we surprised him and then hit him hard on Saturday. What did
Josh Janssen: [00:08:44] you say? Did he not think of the surprise? What did, so explain the surprise party. So there was some neighbors, your parents.
Um, you're behind the
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:57] fence. Yep. Yeah. And we walked through our side gate Bodie and I were waiting down the street. We got dropped off and I just told him a Porky pie that we might try and get his haircut. Cause there's a hairdresser just near our joint. And so we, um, I knew that wasn't gonna happen and we walked and we played in the park and then we walked back to our house and.
I got him to open up the side gate and he had some little toys in his hand and he walks in and then all of a sudden surprise, and he's just looking so shocked and drops his toys and then falls to the ground and crawls out the door. It was all a bit much because it was after daycare.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:38] The kids have surprise parties.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:41] I think some, some don't he's only turning four. And so he doesn't, he's just. It's all
Josh Janssen: [00:09:51] he does. You sorry, I interrupted. So he'd just come back from daycare.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:55] Yeah. And so he's, he's actually tired. He could have fallen asleep in the car, but we were like, now we're pushing through. And so, yeah, it was awesome neighbors over mum and dad. Um, Amy's mom and my sister, my brother, you know, his kids and wife.
And so it was everything. Yeah. It was perfect for the situation. But we know in saying that we did tell him that not around the fire and all he said was. Um, they're not going to cancer. My fifth birthday are they, which was a bit sad, but hopefully not. Oh, well we can't promise him that for insurance, but get this.
So we paid. So when you go to, when you go to parks as a parent with kids, you're hoping for the best, but you're hoping, uh, a rotunda or whatever you call them. Uh, the goal that, you know, The shelter is, is available or the best barbecue spot. You can now pay money to the council to reserve a space. And so this park we were going, so we dropped $140 to reserve an area for the party.
Really. And you had to have to log in online, create an account, submitted it all, and they print off paper and they put it into this, like, um, you know, like this cabinet next to the next to the area. And it has your name on it. And has your times. And so
Josh Janssen: [00:11:21] it almost feels like when you see those, um, pieces of paper, like how often the toilets are claimed at a public toilet.
Yeah. No joke or
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:29] whatever. And so we paid the one 40 and, um, and we had to cancel so you can either get your money back. It just takes like a month or something.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:40] That actually reminds me of, um, Dropbox, the company in San Francisco, there was a huge backlash at them because, um, I think it was soccer. They were playing or basketball.
I think it was soccer. And, um, you know, as a company that they were creating teams. And so they basically reserved shit that could never be reserved previously. So all the, you know, the locals that would normally play soccer, they're like, Fuck off guys. We're drop box and we, we have the soccer field. Now
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:13] there's something about it, but when you're paying money, it's, um, it's slightly, you know, it's a bit different.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:20] Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it feels, it feels like the, um, yeah, I mean, ideally you want enough park that you don't have to do that. Right. But I guess, especially,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:32] yeah, that you want, you want to have a reserved spot at this park. Because every now, and that's the thing, um, because of the restrictions, the reason we did it in park was because there was only a 15 person limit in households.
And so we kept that 15 limit easily on Friday night. And that was people that, you know, it wasn't even buddies, best friends, you know, he's, he's got a little buddies from daycare and stuff, so. That's why you've got a reserve because every parent is having a party with 50 kids at a park. Um, but you know what, Josh?
I, um, I haven't told him what you've got him. I did tell him that you have got him something. And all he's asking is when am I getting, when am I getting my prison from Josh? We he's just he's onto it. What is it I'm fired up
Josh Janssen: [00:13:22] to. Yeah, I really want to say music. It is me, but he doesn't watch the show. Yeah, no.
So it was the, uh, probably six or eight months ago. Bodhi was talking about this, uh, monster truck. What is it called? What's the monster truck code? Uh, nah, but like what's the, there's a thing above that it's like the grave Digger, but the actual monster truck, I can't remember the brand. Anyway. He said that he wanted.
One and I said, yeah. And I'll get you one and then looked online. It's more of a, both like it's, you're not just giving it to him on a random day. Remote control. Yeah. So it's a remote control. It's sick. Anyway, I found a place it's like, um, this one that I have is like a, it's like a blue shark looking monster truck thing that can go on dirt.
It can go in the water. It's it's sick. Had to go to big w crate. Like we have to go to BW Craigieburn
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:24] and if, what happens if the lockdown continues four weeks later, he's going to forget, are you going to ask surely?
Josh Janssen: [00:14:31] Nah, nah, nah. It's like reserved, like they're not giving that to anyone else at that point, but there was like, you couldn't get them anywhere.
I don't know why, but, um, yeah, there is, there is something exciting about the, like, I can see how, you know, the, um, uh, that Christmas film that's got Arnold Schwartzenegger in it where he's trying to find that Dole.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:52] What is it? Um,
Josh Janssen: [00:14:57] Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. He's, it's like, um, the kid tells his dad that he wants a specific, um, toy for Christmas.
And, um, and it's the whole, I don't know if I'm telling the story. Right. But I feel like the whole film is Arnold. Schwartzenegger trying to get this action figure.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:18] It sounds like you all to your mum running you around trying to find the right microphone.
Josh Janssen: [00:15:24] Yeah. Okay. Well, it's very hard to find it, so I cables.
Um, yeah, but, and so what did, um, so how did you make Saturday special? What did you do? Uh, well, I guess Sunday was his actual birthday.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:36] We, I, we ended up just launching. And it was a three-day party weekend for him. So yesterday, uh, what do we do? Oh, yesterday we had a PA, um, pancake picnic in the backyard just eating pancakes.
And it was awesome weekend. I think that's the thing as much as it was normal parenting where you just chilling with the kid and taking them to the park, whatever it is. It, it was, there's a, there's something about when you, when you know, everyone's in the same boat and it's a lockdown that you can just make use of being at home.
So we made 'em dumplings, uh, as much as he didn't really get involved, but that's a Chinese new year learning new year's is it year of the ox? And so it's a, um, you're a bit of addition. Yeah, I am. It's the year. Yeah. Yeah. March. They call me. I actually
Josh Janssen: [00:16:31] don't know what, like, I actually couldn't tell you what an ox looks like,
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:36] like an ox ox animal.
Like I don't, I haven't, where's an ox. Yeah. They like it. They look like a big, hairy, um, some of them hairy. They've got big horns. They just look like a, they look like a bespoke cat.
Josh Janssen: [00:16:52] I reckon you could get them in Vermont.
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:56] That'd be some options. Yeah. Like, you know, they'd probably survive and winters, you know, they're absolutely ginormous.
I mean, that's where you call him me. Cause I'm a bigger dude.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:07] Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:07] And so do you, um, anyway, we did, we made it, um, dumplings as a family, which was a tradition that the Chinese do around. This, what we've heard, there was not one Chinese person, person to
Josh Janssen: [00:17:20] concern that solved. It sounds nice. Um, have you, have you found like, cause I've noticed I'm not really checking the news if I think about previous lockdowns, I'm onto it, but just even hearing.
No Bri having conversations with friends like, Oh yeah. Have you heard it's gonna be the 27th or, uh, did you hear that the person touched her over a hundred cups at the airport and now it's going to be like this super spread. Like, that's the only thing that I've heard, but I haven't been seeking out at all.
What I like I was in previous lockdowns and that's where
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:56] there. Well, you go into another lockdown. You're triggered based on just little things that remind you, even having a fire was like what we did in the first lockdown, the second lockdown. And we had one on Friday night for bodies' birthday, but even just refreshing news.com.
Do they like there's w I mean, This is too early to say whether the state's locked down we'll end Wednesday night. That's a headline from the age.com.edu. That's the problem. You, we were just looking at headlines back then. And so it's, um, what's weird is how, you know, it said the, the news websites were.
Leading with something before in the thing was actually confirmed? Well, there was always
Josh Janssen: [00:18:45] it because it's same. Like, um, so on Friday the big thing was, uh, federal MPS are getting told to leave Victoria by Friday. Like at midnight, if they want to be in Canberra for their, um, for parliament or something.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:04] I mean, it's just, what does it do for you? Um, and I mean, you're the future guy. You love the future. Yeah. It's better. It is whatever you wanted to now.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:16] Shit. W
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:19] what is, um, As the, uh, futurist eviction of the shower, what are you? What's your five
Josh Janssen: [00:19:27] on futurist? It's just someone who can't live in the present.
I don't know. Like, I think that there's a lot of people feeling it at the moment where all of the things that would normally give purpose and meaning, or, you know, like give you sort of a break or give you perspective things like a simple as traveling. You can't, you can't do them do that at the moment.
And I, so I think that for a lot of people, it's like, um, you know, if you, if you go away every year, um, It's going to get very close to two years since, you know, like you've been away, you'll start feeling it more. So, yeah. I, I feel like I go through sort of ebbs and flows of our, this is all good bunker down.
Focus on what you can locally. And then of Vermont, it looks pretty nice.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:24] Yeah, dude, it's even just looking at it. Um, people online, like it's watching some, some guys in, they were in Puerto Rico, some American dudes traveling like shit right now.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:42] yeah. Do you know about quad bikes? You won't be able to buy one, a new one in Australia in the next couple of years.
Like this style, like apparently the, the legislation is so tough that, uh, all the big brands like Honda and I don't know who, who else makes them. They've basically all said, no, we're not going to be bringing any of our quad bikes into Australia now. Wow.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:09] I mean, w because of them being there. Well, I
Josh Janssen: [00:21:13] think like a pet.
Yeah. So apparently this was cause I was on a quad bike a couple of months ago, just, you know, shooting guns, uh, going on quad bikes live in the drain. And, uh, my mates said that, um, like apparently new ones need to have like roll cages and stuff now. Oh, like it's gotten very strict. Cause you can, you can see how you can really easily fuck yourself up.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:43] Tracks, not tracks. I don't know what you call them. The three wheeled. Motorbikes. Yeah, yeah, yeah. The, you turn hard and you flipped it. And when you turn hard on a, on a quad, less, less flippage than the three wheels.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:57] But I think that the problem is that they land, like they.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:00] They land on you for no good, but I mean, a motorbike riding a motorbike easily dead it's yeah.
That's annoying. That is annoying. It is. I mean, there's so many farmers that use these bikes. They have to, but I guess there's so many that have been imported or they're here. You'll be able to, you
Josh Janssen: [00:22:18] get second hand, like the second hand and stuff. Yeah. I mean, I just heard it from a mate, so I don't know how real it is, but, um, uh, what was I going to say?
That's something that is something on the, on the quality thing. I mean, when I went to Turkey, I was, um, I got told off, cause I was, I think that quad bikes are those things that you kit where you can go pretty hard and feel like you're safe because you don't have to sort of try and keep up, right. Like a motor bike.
And so I think that the, you almost feel like you're in a, um, uh, in a car. And I think that there's a danger there. Yeah. Well, you
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:59] look at all the, the skin that has been taken off people's arms in Mykonos and center rainy. You can just hire them and you see like people walking around. They've just got, I remember, I reckon four dudes, just always guys, just their arms is Rashed up.
From coming off a quad bike. They're not trying to try to impress a girl. She's had, he's had 20 mythos beers and he's just coming home from the club. It's um,
Josh Janssen: [00:23:28] surely that's a big thing. The whole drink, like drinking as well. And then getting on to them like, well,
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:34] I mean, the Lord just is in Australia. What it is, he cannot, I don't even, I mean, if you're on your own farm, you can do what you want, but that's just dumb at that's probably one of those have some common sense.
100%. It's, um, it's a bit sad,
Josh Janssen: [00:23:48] but on the way, on the trip, on the travel thing, um, Bri sort of said to me on the weekend, cause I'd been looking at a lot of, you know, the Vermont travel stuff and she said, can we at least look at somewhere where we can go? That's uh, so we're looking at, we're looking at Tasmania.
Oh, that's nice. It's nice.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:06] If we can get you from place down there. I mean, you look at it. If you came from Tasmania, Last week. So Amy's mum was coming from Tasmania. She came from new South Wales, but if she came, she would have to do 14 days of quarantine when she gets back in, if she went back to Tasmania.
And so it's amazing how quickly the shit can shift, which is.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:29] And so you're worried that I'm going to do a little getaway and Tazzy gets stuck
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:33] or something. Yeah. And then you just won't ever come back. Mate, can you ship a few things down here for me? Right? There was,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:40] there was something appealing
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:41] about it.
It's it is a bizarre time to be alive. It's weird. Yeah,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:47] we did. There was a time on Friday where we were like, let's record three episodes, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday on Friday, but we thought it was, um, nicer to, um, You know, connect during the week.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:02] Sure. There is something about that consistency. I mean, we did it for the lockdown for so long every day, twice a day sometimes.
Yeah. But, um, yeah, when I go to here in Melbourne at this moment, but hopefully
Josh Janssen: [00:25:16] it's not too bad, like think about like the, this is what I would love. I almost feel that. We need, here's a, here's an idea for a website it's like perspective.com or news perspective.com and you go on there and you can select a specific part of the world.
And then you get venues because the thing is, it's like what's happening in Melbourne. Yeah, it's a lockdown, but it's five days to then have a huge amount of normality. Like think about the U S think about New York. Like they, I don't think that, I think maybe they've just re-opened dining, like yeah. Th the amount of freedom that these lockdowns give us a huge, and so I understand the frustration and it's fucking businesses, and it's doing a lot of bad shit, but it's like, I mean, COVID is doing that.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:14] Yeah. I mean, they're totally killing people. I think the way people are challenged, that is the, the so-called freedom that you get, but then they can lock it down again at the drop of a hat and then it's, it's all sort of like, you can just ruin people. And so that's it, it's like, yeah. The empathy that someone has for a mate who probably has a business, that's lost it after this lockdown, just that way or nice.
They were just almost about to go under and then they sent them, I get that. They don't have that same perspective and they would fucking hell at your website. I'm sorry. The thing is, I don't know how much I don't, I can't understand how we can get any more power than we do as in the power is in the state and the governments that I don't know, like people marching about.
Getting locked down on Friday. The government's not fucking listening to that, but I'll need it, I think, is
Josh Janssen: [00:27:06] that the freedom, but the freedom that we have been given is thanks to our aggressive approach to COVID don't you don't you agree on that? Um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:21] yeah. Yeah. It's also, yeah, I'm not gonna say they could have done better, but it is.
You hope so. I hope that is, that's what they've tried to say. And so I don't know. So the cases were at 700 a day at one point, and then the lockdown happened, they got right down to none for months, and then people are getting laid in so that you see where they're just fucking in these other areas. Like if we were to say,
Josh Janssen: [00:27:46] okay, let's close.
Everything let's Oh, sorry. Let's um, let's, uh, not allow any international traveling then that creates its own issue. And so that's, the problem is like, yeah, obviously in the ideal world, it's like, okay, yeah, you completely close. Like, yeah, the eyes open, all those things. They don't make sense. Like what, especially when you consider, um, you know, what the, you know, but, but the, this locked down.
Isn't relating to the AZA open. Is it
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:21] hotel quarantine? It's just the hotel quarantine thing, which I don't know. You can spend so much time trying to work out who you should be angry at. And you know what you're saying about perspective and hoping that it's short, which means that it's not needing to be this fucking long thing.
If they left it late is a version. That is advantageous to yourself to feel a bit better, which is however you can cope is what we need to be doing. Right. But it's hard when there is when you, when it's absolutely factory business and all of your. Potential celebrations, weather, or even funerals and shit like that.
So it's, yeah, it is hard.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:06] I think that potentially also like, um, people would feel like they're on their own in that regard. Like, I guess last year with job caper and all that sort of thing, there was all that support, but. It feels like now we're at a point where the government at the, uh, making these, uh, you know, big changes or lockdowns, but then they're not in the same way, backing it up with that support.
So like, yeah. I wonder what happens with, um, You know, hospitality, if your business has gone under, based on this, this five days, you know what I w what support is there? Yeah, I wonder, yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:48] they will be, they did it in Sydney as well. It took time, but, and they've said that Melbourne there will be, but then the businesses that can't actually, um, justify or, or, or show.
The result of the lockdown and what it's done, because everybody think about the problems we face as a business from lockdown, the businesses, because we're B2B a lot of the time, the businesses that we're dealing with have the same problem for themselves and their business that they're doing. And so it's a flow on effect and it just doesn't stop.
And so it, um, there's definitely a feeling that people are more like. Right. Let's just open back up on Thursday and get on with it. You do, there is a greater sense of people just like, we'll just get back to it. So I don't think it will be like the first time. Yeah. But it's definitely
Josh Janssen: [00:30:41] don't you think that there's potential potentially a missed, uh, yeah.
Yeah. I, I wonder with, with some of the stuff around like, like everyone is sick of it, like we've always been sick of it, but the thing is if it's, if it's for a better result in the future, like look at the attitudes around, like don't wear masks, don't believe in lockdowns, all of that sort of thing in the U S like it's in a pretty bad.
Place. And so, yeah, I just, I wonder, um, like if it feels like a privileged position to be able to say, yeah, like let's just go on and let's like, live our lives, but it's like this hasn't been brought up for a long time, but at the start, it was all about hospitals and making sure that we're not, you know, uh, over capacity with all of that sort of stuff.
And I guess just looking at the UK as well. I feel grateful from what has happened. It's very annoying, but it's better than lots of people dying. Um, it feels like a while since we've spoken about COVID
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:53] Scotland is like, A lockdown in a part of Scotland until March there's people that are literally just being at home for months.
And it's winter, it's hard over there, but I'm the type that, you know, the rest of the week is a positive.
