I should take advantage of slow nights more than I do. Here are a few things I should do when it's slow:
- Slower nights mean excess dough. I should make pizzas with the excess dough and sell them to bars. "Hot selling" or the less PC "pimping pizzas" are the terms used to commonly describe this practice.
- Set up food trades. I actually tried to with UDF and Steak & Shake. All I wanted was a stupid milkshake.
- Extra cleaning tasks. (just kidding)
- Clean my car. Hey, this would be a cleaning duty if I drove a company vehicle, as delivery drivers do in other countries. I shouldn't be denied the chance to do this on the clock just because my company does not provide me with a vehicle.
On a brighter note, I posted this on TTPG today, in the topic "Why do you do it?":
I love driving.
I love working unsupervised.
I make very good money.
I get time off when I need it and extra hours when I need them.
I get free food.
I can even trade the free food for food from other restaurants or things like oil changes.
I love listening to music and I get to pick what music is on at work.
I am out of market for all my favorite teams (Detroit/U-M), but I get to listen to them via satellite radio, which is a tax write-off.
I always have great stories to tell.
As LoneStar once said, "pizza delivery is the last great job in America".
