This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
I can't go in to fast food joints to use the bathroom  so it's gas stations at lunch   and the liqour stores are phone order/curbside pickup only. Our procedures are kind of modified so we're half cable man half delivery driver but we're still working close to normal volume wise.
That's literally the only difference for me.

The curve has been flattened in Florida, so we're [finally] beginning the process of reopening. Parks, theaters, and some other locations are still closed but restaurants and retail stores can operate at 50% capacity, barbers and salons are reopened, and gyms will reopen starting tomorrow. Contrary to what some people would want you to believe, the only cost for a haircut right now other than the typical $14 is a two hour wait without an appointment.

Here's hoping we get to Phase 2 soon.

As for me personally, Florida Unemployment managed to fix the colossal fuck-up from a few weeks back and I was able to get two weeks of unemployment. Ironically I'm making $108 more a week than I was while working, but I still want to hurry and get back to work because the cabin fever is killing me both mentally and physically, pretty sure I've gained ten pounds over the last two months doing little movement outside my room. I just started Persona 3 since P5R created an itch for more.

What's the situation looking like at Disney
I can't imagine they'd be back to normal operations for a year or so

Disney Springs will be reopening in three days. Operating participants (third party companies) will be open first and three Disney owned locations will open later this month (World of Disney, Marketplace Co-Op, and Deluxe Burger). Parking will be limited to only two of the garages (no surface parking) and everything including the property as a whole will be at 50% capacity. Masks are required for both guests and employees and protective glass has been installed everywhere.

Parks and resorts here in FL are still closed, but Shanghai has reopened and is being considered a massive success (tickets for the park were capped at 30,000 and sold out within minutes). Same guidelines will apply in the parks/resorts here in FL we were told by the executives still working along with six foot social distancing spots while waiting in lines for rides and designated sitting/standing spots for shows/fireworks.

Governor DeSantis has said that technically both Universal & Disney can reopen now if they so choose provided they have a plan in place with the Orange County mayor, however the mayor has refused to let them reopen until at least June (and Disney isn't accepting reservations right now until July). I believe the parks are just waiting for DeSantis to announce when we're officially in Phase 2 before seriously getting the ball rolling on the parks reopening.

I work in Magic Kingdom so we're still closed. Whenever we do reopen I have no idea what it's going to be like, my operation in particular is heavily reliant on college program kids, we have very few full timers and even fewer part timers; certainly not enough to run an operational day without CP interns. Before we closed I asked how we would reopen without CPs since they would need OJT and the response from my leader was "Ian why you gotta ask such a difficult question?" meaning they had no clue and I doubt the answer has changed over the last two months.

Is your day to day going to change at all?

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.
I wasn't laid off from either of my two jobs yet I'm still not allowed to work. My boss for my weekend job sent out an email about possibly reopening soon about a week ago but I'm still basically just trapped in my apartment. This is almost worse than being unemployed tbh.

you can still file for any weeks you didn't pick up hours in or get paid for, and have the added bonus of being considered job-attached, so you wouldn't have to conduct work searches and show proof

One of my jobs is paying me a percentage of what I usually get so I don't qualify for that.

Does your area do partial-unemployment? Doesn't qualify for that either?

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Working from home. Working a lot more than I used to actually. Its all good aside from not being able to fly.

Thanks man. I was worried that I wasn't going to get it back. They called me the other day providing details on how things are going to work out now. I'm curious as to what they're going to have us do since we work in partners.

naturally, this pandemic has halted my weight training progress, and my partner is concerned

i wonder if/when i should break it to him that i only agreed to work out with him in the first place out of spite for the activity, and a desire to prove just how valueless it really is for somebody with my lifestyle

Same. I’m more productive as a dev when I don’t have to worry about interruptions in the office. Also I don’t have to wear pants.

Unfortunately my weekend job is paid cash under the table so it's unclaimed.
