Merry Christmas everybody! This is the time of the year when people are more generous and my friend Paul told me that he made a lot of extra money with his side gigs for Door Dash and Postmates. “People are giving me insane tips” he said. Everybody is more friendly and grateful.
“I only had one grumpy customer” over the last week he told me. “Working right now is better than ever except that at some places it’s going too slow so I avoid them.”
It’s different from area to area but as long as your acceptance rate is not all the way down it’s a good idea to decline those orders where you know you have to wait too long for the food or when the pay is so low that it’s not worth the time.
“I have learned a lot over the last months, I have become way more efficient than in the beginning” he shared.
He is right about people being nicer, I was shopping yesterday and today and indeed – people seem to be in a better mood than usual.
May the Spirit of Christmas be with us, also when the holidays are over. There is nothing wrong with being nice the whole year.
