On Saturday evening, I was picking up Chinese food for my family right across from the pizzeria where I work. I saw our general manager out back so I stopped in to say hi. I don't usually see her since I only work Mondays and she doesn't.
The store was celebrating Halloween. Manager Mike was dressed as a Papa John's manager. Our restaurant is part of another franchise! Very funny!
Anyhow I visited for a few minutes and saw the deliveries stacking up on top of the oven. That always makes me a little antsy, as each order is a chance to get tipped!
After chatting for several minutes and seeing no drivers return, I sprung into action. I checked the tickets and found an order that was going to the apartments right in front of my house. I offered to take this delivery, that way the drivers would have less to do. This neighborhood is a fair trip but is several miles away with a minimum of 4 stoplights round-trip.
I only made $2 (and I'm not sure when I'll get it, as it was a credit card tip so the manager would pay me after the delivery, and I didn't go back). But still it was kind of fun!
