Why save money with the driver when you’re rich?

The area where I work now is supposed to be like the 5th wealthiest town in the country. These people get new cars every year, they wear all the latest designer clothes, $10,000 watches, they have acres and acres of land for their million dollar plus houses, they have vacation homes in other states and countries, they vacation several times a year, and when they order food they spend a lot. Then they fuck the driver on a tip. Not all of them, but enough to be annoying. The bad tippers average between 2 and 5% for a tip. Imagine taking $100 worth of food in snow or rain and getting between $2 and $5 for a tip. It’s like they’re saying “fuck you, I don’t respect the service you’re providing, but I’m willing to overpay for the food and make sure every other employee there is taken care of.” Because the other employees do get paid much better, and the waiters inside average between 15 and 20% in tips. How someone got the idea you need to tip the guy who doesn’t have any work expenses and fuck the guy who has lots is beyond me. Take what just happened: one of the cheap fucks 4 miles from here just called to complain they wanted more rice. Now I have to waste my fucking gas to bring them more rice when they tipped me $3 on a $62 order. They might say thank you but it’s a huge fuck you to me. I hate these assholes.

Asshole Neighbors

This isn’t about delivering, but I had to blog about it. I’ve been having problems with my downstairs neighbors from almost day 1 when I moved in two years ago. The first incident, I had a few friends over on a Friday night to celebrate the new apartment, and yes, we were being loud pretty late, but it was Friday and all. The neighbor came upstairs pounding on the door screaming he was trying to sleep and tried to start a fight. That happened a second time as well. Both times he apologized for being a dick. I didn’t accept it either time, since he, and his family are dicks. Then one day he comes upstairs pounding on the door because there’s a leak in the ceiling and water is dripping down. He wants to fight because “how could I not know?” umm, because it’s in the ceiling downstairs which is under my floor, that’s how asstard. He later apologizes for that one, too, but he got in a shoving match with me before his brother stopped him.
Then there was the time in the summer I had been drinking a little and was asleep when his brother decides to start trouble. Apparently my car was on the street where he likes to park. He tells my roommate to wake me up to move my car so he can have his favorite spot on the public street. I go down, the two of them start shoving and grabbing at me, I eventually move and the bitch gets his parking spot. The landlord later quashed that when I said if the bullshit kept happening I would call the cops. The next incident, the same brother decides to park across my car blocking me in my spot so I can’t leave. I leave a nasty note and again tell the landlord.
Then there was the July 4th issue last year. I was lighting sparklers on the porch when the first brother comes home, runs up the porch screaming I could start a fire and his kids could burn to death. His kids weren’t home I pointed out. He doesn’t care, nor does he care that I have a fire extinguisher with me just in case, and starts shoving me. I tell him to stop or I would call the cops, he grabs my sparklers shoves me again and I go inside and call the cops. They come, listen to both our stories, tell him he’s lying, and document it just like that. They ask if I want him arrested, I say no, just a report so if it continues I can do something (I’d be pretty rude to get him arrested on July 4th). The cop tells him he’s lucky, I could have had him arrested and to leave me alone. The next day he sees me on the porch smoking a cigarette and asks what I’m looking at. I reply that I was out there first already looking in that direction, and what was he looking at. He starts towards me saying “What’s that White boy?” His brother stops him. I yell back “Why’s it gotta be about race?” Oh yeah, they’re all Black or half Black and hate Whites for some dumb reason.
It was quiet for a while until recently when I noticed the brother parking in our off street spot. I didn’t say anything a few times, reasoning I just don’t want to play that game with them. Let me be the bigger man, right? Life will give them enough lemons and they’ll deserve it, right? Fucking karma seems to perpetually reward complete assholes while fucking those of us with restraint over. I come back tonight and the second brother is parked so close to the middle of two driveways I have to park down the street. He has been asked by the landlord to make room for two cars to park there and he doesn’t. I fucking hate him. I seriously do. The whole lot of them. Husband, wife, brother, the kids, they all suck. And they make a shitload of noise starting at 4am with getting ready for work/school then going in and out and in and out, slamming the doors the whole time. Then they have the gall to ask us to be quiet. Fuck those fucking fuckers.

Ninjavideo, Suprbay, The Pirate Bay.

I’m banned again from Suprbay. I got in an argument with a guy who supported free speech as an absolute right, even for pedophiles to make kiddie porn. I said free speech isn’t absolute, and that he support child porn. I got banned by a mod who said free speech is an absolute right. How fucking moronic is that? He supports people making kiddie porn, but bans me for saying making kiddie porn is wrong. Then, the other mods I appealed it to, also said they support the decision to ban me. They said name calling isn’t free speech on Suprbay. But supporting kiddie porn is. For the record, I wasn’t name calling. I simply said he supported kiddie porn and that I found that kinda gross. I then told the mods on IRC that they are turning more and more into the dicks at Ninjavideo. The NV mods used to be like that: not giving a shitt about their users, only caring about how many bans they could pass out. Where’s ninjavideo now? Offline, that’s right. These guys at SB seem to think that the world will fall apart without them. It’s a fucking forum site. Grow a pair of balls and stop making everyone go along with the status quo. That’s so annoying. On the thread they used that argument that laws against things like indecency because the masses say so don’t make them right. And there again, when I go against the masses on SuprBay they ban me.
For the record, I do not support absolute free speech. One person said Blacks should just have to deal with it at work if the Whites gang up on them and tell racist jokes, just as women would have to deal with being sexually harassed. To protect free speech. But folks, that sort of speech isn’t protected. If you want to blog about it, it’s fine, but if you want to make someone else feel bad about it, it’s not usually ok. The original case had a guy who made a video that looked like he was singing some sort of adult lyrics to some kids. He didn’t. He just made it look that way. In his state it was still illegal, presumably to stop those tards who make the fake child porn videos. The people on Suprbay said as long as no one was really injured what’s the problem? I said because it leads to people actually doing it, hence the law against it. Apparently on Suprbay the only speech that isn’t protected is that of the sane mind.

Do people get why bad tips hurt all of us?

The delivery I just took was almost $50. The woman with 2 Mercedes in the 5th wealthiest town in America tipped me almost $2. $1.99 to be exact. People don’t seem to get that we use our own cars, buy our own gas, pay our own insurance, taxes, upkeep, and risk our lives to bring you your food quickly. Then there are the elements. We come in rain, snow, lightning storms, blistering heat, and freezing cold. We often have to wait for some of you dumbasses who don’t have the money ready, are asleep, or not even home. 99% of the time when we’re late to a delivery, it’s because one of you dumbasses made us late, not because we’re slow. So think about it when you give that waiter a 20% tip for going from a warm kitchen to a warm dining room completely safe how you fuck over drivers. Tipping is supposed to keep food costs down, and often offers you free delivery. How a customer could use a 20% off coupon then give the driver 4% is beyond me. Oh, that 1% of the time we’re late? It’s because your cheap. You fucked us over and showed you don’t care about us so we take everyone else’s order first, even if you called first. If we see you got a package, we might kick it into the bush. If you ask us to help with something, most likely we’ll say no. If you ask for a menu, for you we’re out. We hate you and hope there is a purgatory and you have to spend a hundred years waiting on cheaper bastards like yourselves.

Slow week

So of the last 3 nights, I have taken 2 deliveries tonight. WTF? Apparently advertising isn’t a big concern here. I wonder if making money is. For delivery you have to advertise. It doesn’t matter if you have one of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants. If you want to deliver you have to keep getting the word out there. EVERY month. Supposedly it’s been done here 3 times in 10 months with an expectation that word of mouth will carry it. Wrong! Delivery could be 25% or more of a business, but you have to feed it. Sitting back and expecting money to fall in your lap is a really bad idea. I like it here and I hope business picks up in spring and summer, but I’m looking for a second job.

Standard Tippers

I just took a delivery to a house that’s probably worth about $2,000,000 on 4 acres of land surrounded by a wall with a remote gate. They always tip $3 to $4 tops. The order was $51. That’s just cheap even by Bridgeport standards, let alone that the house is in Westport. They’re getting an anonymous letter on the etiquette of tipping.

Banned on SuprBay Yet Again.

Your forum account is currently banned. Ban Reason: arguing a modcall and trying to evade ban with a puppet account.
Ban will be lifted: 9th February 2011, 23:41

So here’s what happened: I asked a question about movies being available online before they come out in the theater. One of the mods decided he didn’t like the question so he just trashed my thread. No reason given. So I post in a different area the same question. So they ban me for arguing a modcall. But for me to have argued it, there would have had to be a reason given,and there wasn’t. I think the mod was just being a dick. So I created a fake account and posted I think he’s a dick. So they banned that account and extended the ban on my other account for another two weeks.

THE MODS ON SUPRBAY ARE A BUNCH OF FUCKING PUSSIES. I wish they lived near me so I could see if they wet their pants if I got up in their face. I mean that’s what this is essentially, right? They’re using their keyboards to ban people for no good reason because they’re pussies.” And they are almost exactly like the mods now that Ninjavideo had. The Pirate Bay will tell you they’re all about freedom, and how rules that don’t make sense need to be changed, but look at their forums. They’re just as guilty of being complete asshats as the corporations they say they’re fighting using piracy. Every time the corporations bend them over and stick it in a little further, I laugh. Just like I laughed when they suggested we stop using Paypal for some bullshit reason. Fuck that. I love Paypal. The Pirate Bay can kiss my ass. If they have an issue with Paypal, that’s on them, not us. As to their freedom of speech issues, they’re hypocrites. They say one thing and do another. I can only hope I get to read about the day they get shut down for good. The pirates out there will still be able to get their files from other sources, but the little bitches banning people they don’t agree with will have to go back to playing World of Warcraft and wishing they had a friend, a clue, and a girl.

A Random Rant About Doctors

Doctors that won’t effectively treat paid are what’s causing anyone in paid to self-medicate. For example: a few years ago I had to have 3 teeth extracted. The dentist gave me Motrin 800 for the pain. I never bothered filling the script. My Excedrin Migraine is stronger. Not only that, I’d have to take 4 or 5 to dull the pain. I called later and said it wasn’t working and he said that was all he could do. Yet years ago I had a wisdom tooth out and got Percocets (10mg). Perfect. It wasn’t refillable and got me through the pain. In the most recent case I wound up getting drunk for a few days to have relief from the pain. How is that helpful?
I know doctors that will refuse psych meds if there’s any chance they’ll make you feel good. Like Xanax. They’re okay with the ones with side-effects that would scare a torture master, but the ones that might be addictive, they refuse to give out. If doctors refuse to treat patients effectively maybe they should consider a different career or at least lobby for drugs like Marijuana to be legalized. I’d much rather get a safe, effective script from a doctor than get drunk or high, but aspirin doesn’t cut it for chronic pain. The oath to do no harm should include not leaving people in pain because of your own fears.
