Nine to Five

So you think my job is easy? You pick up the pizza, drive around town, go back to the shop and then do it all again. It isn’t that easy. First, I don’t earn much per hour, so I have to work long hours. Sometimes I start at 3:00 pm and finish at 2.00 am. I also have to drive a lot. I drive about 80 miles everyday, and I have to use my own car because the company doesn’t give me one. That’s a real problem.

Another problem is the tips. Customers don’t have to give me tips, but without the extra money. I don’t earn much. Finally, I’m always  busy. When I finish driving, I have to wait on customers in the shop and, of course, I have to be polite, even when I’m tired! Then my boss answers the phone, and I have to leave again and deliver another pizza.

The next time a delivery person brings you a pizza, remember : does he have to work hard? Yes, he does! So be nice to him, and give him a big tip.
