It was raining. On top of that, it was right after Christmas. On top of that, it was an 8-hour day. I guess I should’ve figured that those three elements would add up to the most lucrative day I’ve ever had at work.
Thirty deliveries. That’s right, thirty. 3-0. I went on several double-runs and even a couple triples, it was so busy. By about 6:00 (at which point I’d taken about 23 deliveries, my record until tonight), I got to the point where I didn’t even care about tips, since I figured that the sheer volume of orders I’d gotten would average out any bad tips. Even so, I scored a 10-spot on one order, $6 on another, and a handful of $4 tips as well.
My final total for the night: $106, shattering my old record for most tips in one day by over $20. I’m rich!
