Ah, I’ve been busy. It’s a good feeling. No time to sit around worrying about things you can’t change.

Had some interesting runs tonight. Went to the Alpha Delta Pi house three times, first for two orders, then another, then I forgot the sweet tea and said “I can bring it over ASAP” but she was like “Oh, it’s fine” like it was nothing and I said “Are you sure?” and she said “Yeah.” Then she called the restaurant and asked where her sweet tea was.

Then there was an order for Antonio, a cook in the kitchen, whom I didn’t know because I’ve only been there 2 weeks, I barely know the names of all the managers and deliverers. When I got to his house he wasn’t there, so I went about my run, delivering the other orders. Then Shaun called my phone and said Antonio called to say he was back home and to drop it off when I could, which I was gonna do. Finally got Antonio’s order to him and he hands me a twenty—I awkwardly hesitate—”You want some change?”—like he’s a bum on the street—he asks for two dollars back—keeps asking “That cool?”—even offers the whole twenty like I seemingly wanted—I stand by his original tip—though as a coworker, I feel he shouldn’t have to tip me—I just didn’t know his name, and made a mess of social graces.

A super intoxicated female called asking about the Mariah’s 30th Anniversary 30% off dine-in deal, if it could be applied toward delivery. Phil had to explain to her it only applied to dine-in orders. I ended up delivering her order, and she introduced me to her parents and asked me in slurred words “Why can’t I celebrate Mariah’s 30th Anniversary at home? I’m kind of drunk” and I said “I wish I could make the rules…You should have gotten drunk at the restaurant.” Really.

All these things are learned. I’m catching up.
