Let me tell you exactly how 'much' I get paid.
I get 5.50 an hour.
Except when I'm out deliver. I'm off the clock, and get 75 cents every time I clock out to deliver.
Each delivery, at least, takes 10 minutes.
So I'm missing out of .91 cents, approx, of my time. Unless I take more than one item, and then it can take upwards of 30 to 40 minutes to hit every place.
Tonight, I made about 21 dollars working seven hours. That's on my paycheck.
Now, I get tips. I delivered 9 times. Five times I got nothing.
Three times, I got between nothing and about 2 bucks.
Three more times, I got between 2 bucks and 5 bucks.
(Remember, I don't make one trip per clock out. )
So I came home tonight with exactly 20 dollars in tips, plus the aprox 21 I get from hourly.
41 dollars in seven hours of work. About 5.85 an hour.
Now factor in that I went through about 4 gallons of gas, when gas is 1.98 here in Gainesville.
Factor in the wear and tear on a 11 year old Jeep.
I'm not making that much. I have to get my oil changed every month.
