We had a panhandler tonight. A woman came in around closing time and asked if anyone could give her a couple dollars for gas. Manager Nick told her he was sorry but there was nothing he could do. She went back out and got in her car and drove away!
This sort of thing happens every now and then. People know that we have some money and they hope we'll give it to them. I work for my money and I don't give it away for free.
Tonight was a pretty slow night but tips were mostly generous. Of my 8 deliveries, 5 of them tipped $3 or more and everybody gave at least $1. All of them were single runs, and 6 of them were what I would consider "far away." Total miles was 39 and total tips for the night was $25 in 5 hours work.
