    I’ve recently started doing deliveries for Postmates as one of many side jobs to make a little extra money. Due to coronavirus, they’re requiring all of their drivers to wear a mask when working, and there are consequences if someone reports us, so I always comply.

    At around 5pm today it was pretty slow so I decided to accept a delivery that was 19 minutes away. I got to the house with the Chipotle burrito and an old guy with gray hair comes out, grabs his food, and goes “what makes you want to sympathize with communists? You don’t actually believe in that virus do you?” I said “I don’t know man, have a nice night” and got back in my truck. One cent tip. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you (quite literally).

    That's a long way/drive for Chipotle - I was thinking he was going to complain it took too long or the food was cold.

    They probably do haha. Occasionally people will order from some weird location instead of one much closer. Usually I decline those but things were pretty slow.

    The burrito was probably $8-9. $3.05 was my cut. Sometimes I get a good amount though depending on what they order and tips. I track all my driving through an app on my phone and it tells me how much to deduct for expenses when I file taxes.

    Funny story, plenty of Haters out there. In construction we had to wear them from the get go so I got pretty used to it. It is awkward when you walk into a store and your the only one wearing it and everyone looks at you like your a sissy. It makes you want to explain that "I think its stupid too" etc but that would only make it worse. Your answer was perfect.
