Would you rather make 15hr (8 hr shift) working a front desk and seeing a whole lot of entitled types that you have to say hello to for an 'hour' of those 8 (and 90% not saying hello back), and deal with some of the most outrageous temper tantrums for what they "can't" have immediately during that hour, or would you rather drive 8 hours of not knowing what could happen any minute? And usually guess that things go at least somewhat smoothly and "could" have fun. Now granted when you take the 8hr shift at desk, you are NOT paying expenses, or putting forth any risk BUT you are a tool. When you drive, you have full freedom to have a good time (in theory) and which I do a lot, BUT at the expense of your vehicle, which in all reality is MUCH higher than I or most calculate. General start of the side gig discussion, the pros and cons of each, I gave my example, any other please post.
