I don’t miss the hectic months of the local COVID lockdown during the heights of the pandemic.
- It was a stressful time for everyone.
That said, there have been a lot of positive things that came from such a dire situation. Since society reopened I have continued to work from home. The company found that productivity improved, and they saved a lot of money on office expenses, so now I work from home full time. Another great benefit that came from COVID was that the cannabis dispensary started making deliveries. Before the lockdown all orders had to be picked up inside the cannabis dispensary. They didn’t deliver, and they didn’t even have a drive-through window. I actually had to go inside the cannabis dispensary every time. COVID is long gone, and all the restrictions have been lifted, but cannabis delivery has stuck around. Thank goodness for that! During the lockdown I discovered that I am a hermit and shut-in by nature, and not needing to drive to the cannabis dispensary every week has been a godsend. There is an extensive menu of cannabis products on the company website, and an easy click-to-cart process for shopping. I can shop, pay, and process my cannabis order entirely online, and even set up a delivery window. Within the selected period of time, which can be from two to six hours, my cannabis order will be delivered to my front door. Since I paid for it already I don’t even have to talk to the delivery guy, he just drops my cannabis packages on the doorstep and leaves.
