Somebody mentioned that it was “just like me” to post clickbait so I just had to use that title lol.
So, as promised, I have a story from last night’s driving that is a doosey. I picked up this lady today from out in the 68th and Division area. I was already a bit nervous about the pickup because I drove about 15 minutes from across town and it seems many times when I do those pickups where I drive 15-20 minutes to pick somebody up it’s always a very short drop off. So I pull up in front of her house and wait about 4 minutes and she finally saunters out. Immediately the red flags start going off because she comes out side and sits down in her lawn chair and starts having a cigarette. She then after she smokes for 2-3 minutes she finally starts stumbling towards the Jeep. At this point i’m not really sure if she’s drunk or it’s because she’s an older woman, although I’m definitely leaning towards her being drunk because of how long she’s been taking. So she climbs in which ends up being a several minute process in of itself because she can’t get her little chihuahua to jump up into the Jeep. She gets in and almost immediately things start going downhill.
It’s Tuesday aka laundry day. We got here a little late today than I would have liked but thankfully it’s not too busy. I don’t mind it being busy but the noise is what gets to me. Too much screaming and such gets on my nerves. We would have been gone by now but somebody, we won’t say any names (me) forgot to actually turn one of the machines on so we ended up having to stay longer. I like coming to this laundromat because the prices are decent and it’s usually pretty quiet. Usually. Continue reading “Going up…. On a Tuesday!”
Do you like my “clickbait” article title? I think it’s pretty amazing lol.
Things have been pretty quiet on the Uber / Lyft end lately. I had those first few stories, and then I’ve had some pretty nice people since then. Well mostly. The thing I notice the most is how crappy a bunch of people can be when they drink (too much). It amazes me. It amazes me how badly people treat each other after they’ve become drunk. The number of mean people that I’ve picked up is quite surprising to be honest. I picked up a Continue reading “He went to get out of the car, and you won’t believe what happened next!”
Before I get into my story, I guess I should preface it with the fact that I’m no longer at my old job. Last week was my last week there, and I worked my last shift on Saturday. So ya. For now I’m going to be driving Uber / Lyft full time until I decide to either go back to school or I find something else more “careerish”. So, that being said and out of the way. ON TO THE STORY!
As I sit here and type this I look outside and it’s so rainy outside it almost reminds me of spring. However, it’s not spring, and we’re about to go into winter. Which reminds me that I hate winter. Not so much because I hate snow, but because I hate how people drive here like they’ve never seen snow before. There seems to be no middle ground ever when it comes to winter drivers around here. But also, i hate the snow. That being said, in my opinion, there’s three basic categories of winter drivers in Michigan.
Today I said goodbye. I said goodbye to a friend who I’ve never been to the movies with. A friend I’ve never gone to the park with. Never went cruising around with. We’d never gone to the bar together. Never been to church together. Never met in person. Never had dinner together. Never had any meal together. But we’ve spent easily hundreds of hours “together”. We’ve spent countless hours chatting it up. Countless hours running people over in Grand Theft Auto V. Countless hours shooting ships in Elite: Dangerous. We’d spent countless hours in Skype. Ken was a regular guest of the Podcast / Stream that I’m part of. Many games we’d played together, many hours of deep chat about life, wives, kids, work, and everything else between. I know him well enough to call him friend. And that’s not a title I just typically throw around. Continue reading “RIP my friend.”
So I finally decided to sit down and do some actual work on my website. Let me take that back. I finally actually had some time to do some work on my website lol. I usually always find time to keep all the back end stuff updated server side and all that. But it’s been quite some time since I’ve actually sat down and looked at my website to see what’s out of date as far as content and pages go. And boy, lemme tell you it was quite out of date. I deleted a BUNCH of stuff that didn’t even work anymore because I pretty much copy and pasted it from when I was trying to run “ProbablyBlogging.com”. Ya… About that.
I hadn’t even messed with the theme much really to be honest. It wasn’t until I set up a blog for my daughter that I realized I haven’t really touched mine in so long. I’ve been so busy with TDM that I haven’t touched mine. Between work, and trying to get Two Dudes BBS back up and running, I haven’t really had much time for anything else.
I’ve been on vacation all this week as well. It’s been busy but not busy. I’ll make another post about it soon. Probably Sunday. I’m planning on being on the computer most of the day with my buddy. I’ll probably get some pics and all that stuff posted too.
Maybe… If I don’t forget anyways.
PS. Here’s a super cute picture of me holding my lil Bulldog, “Princess”. Click for the full size picture.
So I decided to do a random show tonight! We hung out in Star Trek Online at the Risa resort at the dance floor. We had a lively crowd which was composed of Zavress, PhreakBee, Deva, Nocturn, Sahara, Jeshaa, Suzo, Summer, Peggy, Keku, Ann Tanna, The Doctor, and many others who were popping in and out. The show started as a Pop show, but quickly turned into a Hip Hop request show. We had a lot of fun! The show of course started out with me forgetting to turn my mic on, so for about 30-45 seconds there was no me on air, just my talky music. I figured that out quickly thanks to Bee pointing it out. Once that mistake was fixed everything was pretty smooth from there on out. Save of course for my usual stuttering on air lol.
Well guess who let me do a show… SubSpace Radio! It was really nice to get back on the air and do a show. The crowd was a little lighter than what I’ve had before, but the people who were there were pumped, we were pumped, and we had a lot of fun. Scott (Jahner) and I decided it was beyond time to get in the DJ booth and do our thing. And that’s what we did. We did a Ten Tribble Nation show. Ten Tribble Nation is the culmination of our two shows combined. My show is Alien Nation 3.0, and his is Ten Forward. Hence Ten Tribble Nation.
