Default I may or may not be back

Decided to stick my head in and see what things look like. It's been a while, I guess. Life has been... "interesting".

Last time I was here, I had a girlfriend, and I was driving a cab.

Since then, we got married -- yes, there is now a Mrs. Deserted; our 1st anniversary was a few weeks ago -- and I finally -- FINALLY -- quit driving the cab.

And drove for Uber & Lyft instead.

But with the modern nuttiness going on, Mrs. Deserted & I decided that I needed to stop driving people. I now drive for food & package delivery services on occasion -- at first, it was full-time, but Mrs. Deserted has been working from home for a few months now, so I've had no need to drive all over hell's half acre. (This past weekend was my first shift in over a month.)

This has given me time to work on my computer projects. I'm -> <- that close to releasing a game to the Apple & Google stores that stands a chance of making me a little money. (We're talking beer money, not rent money. Small potatoes. Probably.)

As for CS, I'm not sure if I'll be hanging out or not. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Life's funny that way.

Welcome back! It's good to see another familiar name around again. The busiest thread seems to be the Coronavirus one, if you want to see how folks are getting on.

Thanks for that. Fortunately, the worst thing that happens with food delivery is slow fast food restaurants and customers who don't tip. If that's all I have to worry about, I think I'm doing good.

I'll be honest, I hear so much about corona that I really don't care to hear about it here.


I might do some posts in Unsupportable, if I can put things into words adequately.

Well, then we may or may not be happy to see you again!

Welcome back, and

I'm not in retail anymore either, but I still stop in from time to time.

I read daily (seldom post, though, except horrible shopper letters,) as I haven't worked retail in about eight years.
