Pearson said that the other day while transporting goods, three men on horseback with masks on and waving guns around ran up beside his locomotive. He thought he was going to get robbed, but it turned out they were just Texans showing off their new gun purchases to each other while practicing proper social distancing (on horseback).
Must’ve been a relief!
Engineers aren’t the only ones having trouble with the new status quo, though. Bank tellers have also had difficulty adjusting, and some have been hitting the silent alarm on every single customer.
