|09:49 pm - i am a pizza mobility professional|
day 1 of delivering for Via Via. in 4 hours, i made $35 in tips, plus the whatever i am actually paid (i think 6/hr?), plus slices of free pizza and all the soda i can cram into my bloodstream (jobs with free soda are dangerous for my health). the people seem rad, except this one dude who i believe is the asst manager and was very grumpypants. everyone who works there except for 1 other driver and corey who i live with is middle eastern, which means a) i have to make them repeat everything because i have trouble with the accents, and b) i don't remember any of their names. i am bad at learning names to begin with, and when they're giving me something like mustafar it falls right out of my head.
most people tipped well, but some dicks at Artistic Tattoo gave me a whole 63 cents. of course, since i am against the whole tipping system, it's hypocritical of me to bitch about that. but oh well!
one ridic thing: i delivered to 130 doyle, then i get back and the next order for me is 129 doyle, then after that the next one was 132 doyle. the fucks shoulda gotten together and ordered at once! makin me drive back and forth all night
state: going back to work after not working for 7 months is lame

i got bong hits as tips a few times. ah keene, nh.
pizza delivery is the shit!!
corey who got me the job says that has happened to him before, but nobody has offered me anything yet. of course, corey has dreads, so i guess people just assume he's a stoner and i'm a narc

We should start a union! (Except for the whole 'I hate unions" thing)
Yesterday was a weird day for me. I only took two orders in the morning, and one of them was free because we fucked up the day before, so I made a whopping six dollars. I wasn't supposed to drive last night because they wanted me to help train someone new (well, he wasn't really new - he's worked with us before, but not with the computer system we have in the new store), but there was a big catering order (~$205) that they wanted me to take. I got a $20 tip on that, then I ended up taking two more orders that were kind of out of the way because one driver left early and went to the hospital so he could breathe again (hooray asthma!) and I wanted to keep the other guys caught up. I made $8 and $12 on those. $40 on three is kind of nice.
And don't complain about 63 cents too much. I've taken $150+ orders, some where I had to make more than one trip back to the car from the 10th floor of an office building for more stuff, and gotten the big $0 tip.
oh man. if you ever get a pizza order for I.C. Weiner, try to make someone else deliver it
