On The Road Again

Coach Knoll used to sing that Willie Nelson song to wake us up in the morning for Cross Country Camp.  Today it means I'm back delivering pizzas, after a 6 month absence that encompassed 2 seasons of coaching soccer, and a personal tragedy.

But anyways, I'm back.  Probably just one night a week, for now at least.

I was scheduled from 6 to 10, but got sent home at 8:45 after 5 deliveries:
  • First was a delivery to the Waterbury neighborhood.  Husband held the well-behaved bulldog they were "training", while the wife added a $3 tip to the credit card slip.
  • Second, had to navigate some road construction but earned a $3 tip on a $12 order.
  • Third, got stiffed just down the street from the new high school.  Credit card order, she didn't understand when I asked her to "write the total on that line", not just her signature.
  • Fourth, got a $4 tip on a $20 order near the police station.
  • Fifth and last, got $1.50 on a $23.50 order.  So many vines on the chain-link fence that I couldn't figure out where the gate was to get into the yard!
Totals 2.75 hours, 5 deliveries, $11.50 in tips, 23 miles.  Mileage reimbursement was $5.25 ($1.05 per run).

Shocking news of the night was that Mona retired!
