Landscaping and the One that Got Away

Out of my first 4 customers tonight, 3 of them were outside working and doing landscaping in their yard. Not surprisingly, I made $16 on my first 5 deliveries. People with pride in their home's appearance and who believe in sweat equity seem to be decent tippers.

Then I just missed a delivery to the site of my biggest tip ever ($35). Vince got it instead and got a $20 tip. That was the turning point in my night as I only made $6 on my next 6 runs.

Totals for the night were 5 hours, 31 miles, 11 runs, $22 in tips, and an extra hour doing dishes at the end of the night.
