    I woke up to this

    Yep, it's long passed. And good call on referred pain, definitely on the left side. But all signs pointed to a pinched nerve.

    And, just like that, delivery is dead

    Yeah, I can't understand why people order basic things from so far away when there's a closer location. But they tend to tip better. It's up and down here. One day, slow and not worth it. The next, stacked pings and huge tips.

    Referring to Door Dash?

    You uber guys have it so good!!!!

    Earning more per hour than ever doing X. Just about every single trip has a tip, even to the hood (like today). Obviously a long wait? Cancel without penalty on Eats and move on.

    Be Careful With That Hand Sanitizer

    Yeah, mostly fake news. Just like photos circulating on Facebook of supposed third degree burns from cooking while using hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer will not spontaneously combust. The common formula will actually begin to evaporate, which is more of a concern - it will not be effective...

    Big Bucks, No Whammies?

    I took yesterday off, went back to being dead. Fluctuating drastically here, hopefully the weekend is better.

    Big Bucks, No Whammies?

    Not sure about then but it shows both :) Basically what regular drivers see in California - full details of the trip.

    Big Bucks, No Whammies?

    Actually, you are told / shown the destination address, in addition to the base amount of the delivery.

    Language

    It's fascinating how the brain works. I suck at basic math but I excel in programming, which shares a lot of similarities to algebra. I learned several programming languages and varients quickly. Decided to try Spanish on [app] today, flying through it. I can almost feel the language center...

    Had to take nine facemask selfies during my shift yesterday

    It's not something to be taken lightly. But we've already been through this - the coronavirus is not new (first documented in the 1960s), you and I have most likely already had it (either this strain or a past one), and COVID-19 is a form of SARS (remember that?). Most haven't taken the time to...

    Had to take nine facemask selfies during my shift yesterday

    My biggest question is "why now"? I suspect that the answer is because they could not find masks. They also require that the car be sanitized. I only received a handful of masks and I can't find disinfectant wipes ANYWHERE. I guess we're supposed to pull them out of our ass. So, staying with...

    Had to take nine facemask selfies during my shift yesterday

    Coronavirus is the virus, COVID-19 is the disease process caused by it that kills people (think HIV vs AIDS). The two are being used interchangeably and it's annoying me. Those with compromised immune systems or pre existing medical problems are more likely to die, especially the elderly.

    Had to take nine facemask selfies during my shift yesterday

    I just purchased a gaiter neck type mask. Is it effective against contracting the virus? Not really, it's too thin. Does the app know that or the people I am delivering food to without any contact? Nope! Safety Theater, just like the TSA.

    Had to take nine facemask selfies during my shift yesterday

    Actually, the initial reason for the general population to not wear a mask was to prevent the shortage of masks for those at risk - health care providers and those with preexisting conditions. But, as the number of cases grew, the goal switched to reducing spread from those already infected...

    Had to take nine facemask selfies during my shift yesterday

    Look, I get it - from both sides. The CDC initially said that only people who were at risk or caring for someone with the virus or COVID-19 (TWO SEPARATE THINGS) should wear a mask. Then, confirmed cases increased as testing did. So they reversed their stance. Why? Because of the fact that...

    He thought the coronavirus was 'a fake crisis.' Then he contracted it (rideshare driver)

    Ramen, pasta (and sauce), chicken, and frozen pizza are still scarse around my hood (which is basically "the hood"). Depends where I shop, but that was universally true everywhere around the region for a while.
