Probably not here though eh? Generally try to keep my distance from the poors. That's why I avoid public transit. I figure if I breathe the same air as those poor gypsies, it might infect me with whatever malady that makes them unable to assuredly pay rent/mortgage 10 years out.

A semi-retired engineer, with experience in feet-on-the-ground field engineering and logistics wondering if there's a place he can be used to the benefit of society during a crisis, being lambasted because he's looking for short term work motivated more by altruism than finance. "What an ass! You should just stay at home collecting your divi cheques and drink beer". Are retired doctors and nurses who are considering coming out of retirement to help short term with the crisis equally ****?
I don't blame him or others for jumping to that conclusions based solely on the information (or lack of) that you chose to share in your first couple of responses. Had you shared this info upfront, you probably would have received more positive responses. I think you'll need to take responsibility for how you chose to frame/share your story instead of getting upset for how people responded to you particularly when they're so many people out there who are capable of working but chose to mootch off taxpayers.
