    I’m pretty sure I am the oldest person on my list, except one and I have the most juvenile sense of humor of them all.
    I’m starting to think I might be weirder than I thought. 😂

    Yesterday I sent an application to volunteer with the cancer society driving people to appointments. When my dad was having cancer treatments he used this service and I felt like they needed more people to help out. They already got in touch with me for a phone interview Tuesday. I guess they're desperate... I think I'd be good driving people around

    Hey good on you, you'll be taking away one less thing for these people to worry about during what is already the worst time of their lives. You'll also meet some kind and interesting people along the way.

    I see people upset about losing the free barcode scanner.
    I agree, seems like a greedy loss.

    Just pretend you never had it. 😮

    I had to roll the car windows up and down,
    manually lock the car doors,
    find a payphone to make a call when I was out,
    get up and walk to the tv to change the channel or volume,
    for a while I had am, no fm,
    black & white tv,
    no cable tv,
    played outside 90% of the time,
    bought a pack of cigarettes for less than $1. while I was 13,
    wrote letters to my friends that lived in other cities,
    scrolled through a phonebook (white and yellow pages),
    talked to a phone operator,
    did the math myself,
    if I needed to know something I got off my bum and did what I needed to do to find out.

    Is it really that important to have a barcode scanner, really?

    I love meeting new people, I'm not he annoying person at a grocery store chatting to the check out person
    It's been a long time since I had to do an interview or supply references. Hopefully they aren't too picky other than I can drive, my car is comfy and I have time to help

    I'm sure you have more to offer them than just being able to drive, the fact that you like talking to people is a massive plus, just be you - not all of the passengers will want to talk, but I've no doubt you'll be insightful enough to tell who would appreciate a chat and I think you'll be very good at putting them at ease.

    I can bring them treats haha.
    My dad went through cancer treatments so if I have to take people to the hospital where he went it'll be super easy for me cause I know how it works....and I know where the good food court is! 😀
