Good Samaritan or Stupid?

So last night I delivered a $17 order to a not so good area. The man went in his car, got his wallet and gave me a $100 bill, thinking it was a $20 and told me "keep the change". Without thinking I said,"This is a $100". and he was surprised at his mistake and swapped it for a $20 thanking me. His mom or whatever thanked me too and gave me $11 extra dollars mistakenly as well, because she gave me a 10 and a 1, and i heard her shout earlier saying she had two dollars, unaware one of them was a $10.  So instead of a potential $94 tip I got a $14 tip.

Big Tip

So I clocked into work and I see an order to this one house known for tipping exceptionally well and just my luck I'm the person who gets to take it. They always pay with a $100 bill and say keep the change, netting me around $15-$40 depending on how much they order. Needless to say $22 tip :) Ended up making $50 that night. Hopefully I have the same luck tonight!

Yahoo Domains?

On a side note. After this site has started to receive quite a bit of traffic, I've been thinking about buying a yahoo domain. I'm not sure really I've checked competitors but yahoo seems to have the most appealing domains in my opinion. Any ideas on a good domain name?

A Bit Too Friendly

Well the week is over and I had about $150 in cash from tips.

I remembered I delivered a pizza last year to a Day's Inn late at night. I called the number but got no answer, and proceeded to knock on the door. A lady answered, very friendly, and she tipped $5. Then when I left like 10 minutes later she called, and left a voicemail saying I should come over and spend some time with her.  I'm 100% sure she was a hooker. Or maybe I'm just a looker. Or Both.

Crazy Mofos

So i made a delivery to a mental hospital prison. Granted thank god i didn't have to go actually inside, but I saw some of the people inside the gates. Boy did they look crazy. I heard a rumor that some guy I used to work with me at Papa Johns friend worked there and got lots of her hair pulled out. But I wouldn't take anything he said for truth because ironically that guy was pretty fucking crazy too.

Made like $45 on very little gas. $$$ new shoes to come.

Long Time No See

Last few days have been pretty hectic at work. Made $65 and $35 in tips last 2 days. Delivered to a cute girl I knew, kinda awkward because being the pizza delivery guy doesn't look like the coolest job.

One delivery was to the second floor of the hospital, and it was pretty late at night. Went to security, they called, got a wristband, and then proceeded to maze my way through an unknown hospital. His directions, two rights, a left and a right... And the employees I had to deliver to doors were like those secret spy 1way/2way windows.

Pretty cool I guess.

Work Work Work

So I started summer school at college. That plus working afternoons has gotten me very tired. I get paid Friday but am off most of the weekend.

Last night I got to make my own pizza, put BBQ sauce with italian sausage, bacon, ham, pepperoni, and pineapple.

Whats your favorite pizza?

Friendly Delivery Man

Last 2 days made $49 and $33 respectively in tips. Drove by and saw a dispensary security guard beat the shit outta a crackhead, pretty cool to watch. Delivered a grown mans pizza then he proceeded to homie pound me (knuckles, pound, etc.). Got me thinking hey even Spiderman had to do this shitty job.

My Day Off

Since its my day off I'll answer a few questions.

I get $1 gas for every delivery I take sometimes enough to cover, often not.

I keep 100% of the tips I make, most of the times id say like 10-40% it goes back to gas.

I use my own car.

Do small shifts 3-6 hrs usually, make around $20-60 depending on tips//deliveries.

Worked there 1+ years, just back for the summer.

Cheers, time to spend my dough!

The Rude Border Hopper

Made $53 in tips in 6 hrs tonight. Delivered late at night to some janky apartment complex where the black lady was looking for the the rest of the total, 78 cents for 5 mins. She said I was giving her attitude, wanted my name to call the store, blah blah blah. The next delivery was another apt complex where i had to hop the fence to get in, then i hopped another fence to get into the pool to go drink some water and after piss in their showers, Feels Good Man.

Nothing Special

Made $40 in tips in 4.5 hrs tonight. Some old lady walked into the store asking where the chinese restaurant was, which was next door, i got a kick outta that.  Some lady called wanting peppers on her pizza, I asked green peppers or jalapeno peppers, she replied, "ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME!". Should have said YES.

Boring slow day. Made a lowly $28 in 5 hrs. Nothing REALLY exciting, delivered to a rich looking house where the owners were clearly obsessed with cowboys and indians, and i wanted to steal so much of their lawn display items. Maybe next time.

Pizza Boy: The Good. The Bad, And the Weird

So a lot of stuff happens when I'm at work delivering pizzas. From customers, job duties and random stuff its a pretty cool job. Plus I make a good amount of money in tips. This blog is going to be updated every time I get back to work to describe my day and to highlight anything out of the ordinary that happened. Stay tuned!
