    I can’t remember the exact amount, but I guess you can legally get paid under the counter for anything less than like $400 from an employer/year. I think some employers will file it anyway so they can get the write off.

    I mean, that rando can definitely fuck him/her/themself.

    That said, I just bought three things off CL, and only paid cash for one of them (Paypal and Venmo for the other two).Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Those are sort of cash analogs though, i.e. you can confirm you got the money before handing over the whatever- can be canceled i suppose but you have some recourse. Not like a personal check, which...why would anyone take that for a CL purchase.

    Ugh that’s not frustrating at all

    Sort of similarly I’ve managed to acquire a real junk mail problem. I went away for 5 days for work, and I found a stack of 20 things waiting for me when I got back. I downloaded an app where you take a photo of the letter, and they’ll do rest of the leg work of taking you off the list, but if anyone knows how to nip this thing in the bud HMU.

    Dang that sucks on both counts. ^^Why was your job on the DL before?

    I'm actually fairly surprised at how little junk mail we get, relatively. Let us know if that app works!DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    yeeeah it was fairly bad. I tried out these "waterproof" knit gloves and they were ice sponges in an hour and I didn't bring warmer ones, but at least it was pretty slow for work. Idk, they would probably be fine for commuting or a lighter rain day"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Showers Pass knit

    probably wouldn't recommend. After these were soaked through they stayed really wet and I switched to regular wool knit gloves that were thinner but dried out quicker so they ended up being better overall. If it's a light sprinkle they might be okay, but then you'd be fine with cheaper normal gloves"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    I’m sorry, that really sucks. There’s a naturopath called The Vreeland Clinic in White River Junction that fixed my stomach years ago, and I think they also deal with neurological problems. Hope he gets seen quickly, though.

    apparently we need to start documenting everything we do at work now while we're shut (people can still come to the parks, but we're not doing programs) because it's expected that the asshat that wrote this letter - https://www.sent-trib.com/opinion/wood-county-parks-wasting-money/article_71ddefa2-11fc-11e6-b02c-276a8b593320.html - a few years ago is going to complain about tax dollars going to the park district during this. meanwhile, all the program dept is pulling together videos/crafts/anything possible for people at home to do/look at. what a fuckhead.That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    ok, so, jeff (assistant director) was supposed to stay home today because he just returned from 2 weeks in florida. i butted my way in to a high level meeting today that jeff had called into, where the director said everyone but park police are laid off, go sign up for unemployment, he'll find out about insurance, but basically yeah good fuckin luck for the next few weeks while ohio's under a shelter in place order. after the call, jeff went "uh, no" and drove the hour to HQ and somehow got it turned around so now we're still supposed to stay home (Except for keeping the animals alive/operations guys keeping bathrooms clean so they can be open) but are being paid for our regular number of hours. which, great, but if that was ever an option, why did it take this guy who should be self-isolating to make it happen?? anyway, i have to go leave a thankyou card at the farm for all my staff to sign for jeff, my friggin heroThat may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    There's a handful of people still messengering, but I'm pretty sure the vast majority are off work. I've been home since last wednesday because I don't want to a) possibly die horrifically or have horrific breathing interventions in an overloaded hospital or risk long term lung damage from this shit or b) have it on my conscience that I spread this around. The last couple days I worked literally nothing I delivered was "essential" in any sense, fuck any rich asshole still ordering bank deposits or some shit during this. Also I do not blame anyone still working because we may need functioning dispatch systems to turn our skills into helping people when it gets to that point, because it doesn't look like our incompetent government is going to do shit at any level"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
