All right. Hi, my name is Jessica, and I'm an undergraduate student at ASU enrolled in History 494. The date is February 21. And the time is 124 1:42pm. And I'm speaking with George Carter. I wanted to ask you have a question about your pandemic experience. Before I do, I would like to ask for your consent to record this response for the COVID-19 Archive. The COVID-19 Archive is a digital archive at ASU that's collecting pandemic experiences. Do I have your consent to record your response and add it to the archive with your name?

Thank you. Now I'd like to just ask you a quick question about the pandemic. We've experienced a lot of changes in 2020, and many of them have been negative and disruptive, but perhaps it's not all bad. Once one positive thing you experienced during the pandemic?

George Carter 1:06
My positive thing is there's a lot less traffic on the freeways and highways. I deliver cars. So, less traffic on the highways.

I didn’t catch that.

Jessica Carter 1:34
Sorry. The pandemic and everybody staying inside their own houses has made it easier for you to do your job?

George Carter 1:42
Yes, it has.

Jessica Carter 1:44
Perfect. All right. Well, thank you so much for your time today. Have a good rest of your day.

Thanks, you too.

All right. Bye.
