The Living Force
But I am now committed to a course of action. I was willing to go ahead and get tested for temperature and not respond unless I tested "positive", but now I have let it be known I am NOT HAPPY. I have not rashly told anyone I WILL retire or quit yet, I just suggested it (and will truly try to do so if possible). But now people know exactly how I feel, and what my boundaries are.
I wonder if you shared your sentiments with everyone else who is forced to do this too? You'd probably find that there are a lot of people who have reservations about it, and have no idea that other people feel the same.
In a way it feels refreshing, because I have really galvanized how I feel about all of this madness, and have reached the limits of what I will put up with before saying "NO MORE". From here forward my life will be changing, and perhaps rapidly. But talking for myself, I am ready for a new "adventure". I found my "line in the sand" was a lot further forward than I thought, but that's a good thing.
That's really refreshing and liberating. I have no doubt your employers have overstepped the bounds of what they are legally allowed to do. In addition, they rely on the fact that nobody calls them out to continue doing it. All it takes is one person 'calling them out'.
A person can really 'pack a punch' as well as sticking a spoke in Elites wheels if they point some of these things out to them. Politely as well as quoting the law always gets "points" for style as well as effectiveness. It also avoids retribution because often these people are doing nothing other but "following orders", and that is all a person is calling them out on.
