First the good news: I got a tip! True to what some people have said, it did indeed take nearly 24 hours for Postmates to post my tip. For once “I’ll tip in the app” was actually true!
And a lady bought me $5 of gas as a tip. Which is pretty awesome.
And the bad: While that was good to see, I did spend nearly 45 minutes on that Chik-Fil-A order, in traffic. After gas it ends up being closer to $5. Which… yeah.
And Uber has been awful lately, the in-app navigation does not speak, so you have to stare at the screen the entire time. It has also been super laggy. And tonight it sent me 12 miles out of my way for a delivery from a closed restaurant, which meant I had to cancel it on arrival. Probably the only Denny’s in the world that is not 24/7. Did I get any money for driving way out of my way? Nope.
Lyft sent me to a completely wrong address after changing my passenger and destination twice. Thankfully the passenger the app finally settled on was able to call me and tell me exactly where she was.
And the truck is of course driving like crap. So gas mileage is abysmal.
Annnnd my kids broke my phone charger. For about the billionth time.
And my lovely wife has a migraine.
So I ended the day completely in the red.
Did I mention that job interview was a bust? I can’t drive 100 miles a day for $11/hr, loading a chipper all day. I thought he said on the phone $11-$21, what he really said was $11.21.
But tomorrow is a new day.
I have another interview for a part time job, which given it’s nature will probably at least give me the holidays off, unlike most of the other ones.
And I am going back to pizza delivery, which has always been fairly profitable.
It’s against my nature to be optimistic, but I know it will all work out.
Tomorrow’s going to be a good day.
