Jack Of All Trades

The place where I work right now, the drivers are the only employees that are required to do more work than the other positions at the pizza place. We’re supposed to cut pizzas, make boxes, sweep and mop, take the trash out, take the grease out, take the boxes out; and of those, there are a lot, like a car full. We have to roll dough, help with getting food stuffs for the cooks, clean the windows, clean the fixtures, even do the phones and register on occasion. Oh, and of course, take deliveries. Drivers get paid the same or less than the other positions, and we have to use our gas, our cars, etc. The other positions do their jobs and that’s it. How is that fair? And, we don’t get breaks. I have worked there for 11 hours without a single break on more than one occasion. No lunch, no time to relax for ten minutes, nothing but a bathroom break if we’re lucky. Some people might suggest we sit a lot doing the job, but you try it. Let me know how your back feels after a week, because aside from sitting way too much while we drive, we have lots of labor to do both in the store and dealing with weather, ground covered out of the car, as in foot terrain, the amount of food we sometimes carry, stress from the job, etc. It isn’t easy. I think owners should make their employees take set breaks so they don’t burn out. No this guy, he simply does not care. It’s totally fucked up.

Speaking of Jack of all trades, I modeled nude at pretty much every college in CT for art classes. Here’s a pic (nsfw): https://www.tipthedriver.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/5q.jpg

Thanks a lot for giving everyone an extraordinarily memorable possiblity to check tips from this web site. It is often very kind and as well , packed with a good time for me and my office acquaintances to search the blog at least 3 times weekly to read the latest things you have. Of course, I’m so always satisfied for the perfect pointers served by you. Certain 4 ideas in this posting are in fact the most beneficial we’ve had.

Thanks for these tips. One thing I should also believe is the fact credit cards supplying a 0% rate often appeal to consumers in zero rate of interest, instant approval and easy on the net balance transfers, but beware of the real factor that may void that 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate plus throw anybody out into the bad house fast.

I have viewed that good real estate agents everywhere you go are getting set to FSBO Marketing and advertising. They are recognizing that it’s not just placing a sign post in the front yard. It’s really about building relationships with these sellers who someday will become purchasers. So, after you give your time and energy to aiding these dealers go it alone : the “Law associated with Reciprocity” kicks in. Thanks for your blog post.
