Before I give my stats I guess I should mention somewhere that I love data and graphs. I have decided to calculate my effective wages based on the following formulas:
Wages + Tips + Mileage Reimbursement - Cost of gas = Take Home w/o Tax
12%(Wages + Tips + Mileage Reimbursement - (Difference between Mileage Reimbursement and Standard Federal Reimbursement Rate of .585 per mile)) = Taxes
Take Home w/o Tax - Taxes = Effective Pay
Effective Pay / Hours Worked = Dollars Per Hour
I should note that I make $6.00 an hour base pay and $1.20 mileage reimbursement per delivery.
Last night I...
Drove 26 miles for 5 deliveries,
Averaged 22.2 miles per gallon,
Worked 5 hours,
Got $9.42 in tips ($1.77, $2.50, $4.15, and $1 in quarters!!!!),
and was effectively paid $8.30 per hour.
Weirdest customer: A lady with horrendous painted-on eyebrows. I couldn't stop staring at them!
