i spoke to friend in the medical field today and he is expecting this to be seasonal and no vaccine any time soon as they don't even have time to study the apparent different strains/mutations because they're overwhelmed. 

let's hope not

moving company gave me a window of 1-4

3:45, not heard shit so I call them

’oh hi, Um [redacted bullshit] yeah, they’ll be there within about an hour probably’

that’s not how the window works...

’well it’s not an exact time that’s just the window’

that puts it at well past the window tho...

’right, the window isn’t exact’

Just got a message from a sausage making company in messenger, with a message above it from my messenger requesting a menu... which I definitely did not send 15 minutes ago.  So... someone hacked my account and asked to see a menu for sausages?  Or this company has some way to make it appear as though I messaged them from my own messenger... which I don't think is possible.

facebook messenger?  i took facebook off my phone a few years ago because it kept requesting i install messenger. i wouldn't be surprised if it's an ad that came from data tracking. have you searched for sausages recently? or any kind of meats?

I don't recall doing an sausage searches, as great as they are.  Would be the first time I heard of an ad being able to doctor messenger to have it appear as though you messaged them from your own account.

 

...although, I did cook sausages both last night and this afternoon... so that's spooky.

I think you may have been searching a different type of sausages zeph and targeted advertising just made a leap in logic.

I sent them a message that read: "Is this some spooky new viral marketing thing where you can actually make it appear as though users have messaged you first?"

Will be interesting to see how/if they respond.

Clearly @milkface's revenge for your doxxing him and sending several pizzas to his house (cash payment) three pages ago. ?️‍♂️ I think you two need to talk.

Starting to feel the Corona. I heard from an employee at one of the best companies I do freelance stuff for that they might have to stop using me.

Casino I work for decided to extend the corona closing beyond the initial 2 weeks (obviously), not sure if I'm considered essential enough to go back on Wednesday or not. 'spose I'll have to send an email...

the park I manage is closed till april 8 (covid ofc) and i basically have to stand guard 24/7 if i want to keep hordes of people from congregating here. it's a public beach and one by one every family in town gets the same idea: the park is closed, we'll be safe and alone! ugh. it's a new car at the locked gate every few minutes. if i let these jokers in for even an hour there would be dozens of them. 

i just had to tell a dad and his preschool age daughters to leave. he basically let their puppydog eyes do the pleading for him. i felt like an asshole. just stay the fuck home, people. 

defending the public from their own stupidity is tiring. 

edit: another group just showed up. ffs

Sanitizing my keys, phone, steering wheel and hands after every order is severing diminishing how much I enjoy my delivery job.

Meant to say "severely diminishing," but I like "severing how much I enjoy" better.  Has a lyrical quality to it.

I like the idea of a job where you just tell people to go away.  I'm sure it's less fun in practice, but I really enjoy the concept.

I feel like a guard in a videogame, just waiting for an unscrupulous hero to knife me.

and you know, I do have a hands-off alternative. Since the park has been closed, the cougars here are feeling a bit bold. There are now two dead fawns on the beach, chests ripped open. So I've got that going for me.

That's the first time I've read the word "cougar" in a non-sexual context in years. The world is already beginning to change.

I assumed "fawn" stood for 19-22 year old men, and cougars were becoming much bolder in the parks now that the bars are shut down.
