4/27 60,000 mile mark

My car hit the 60,000 mile mark last night sometime during my shift. I don't know quite what that means other than I'm supposed to have a bunch of maintenance that I can't afford done.

My deliveries:

A lady with two big dogs that really really wanted to play. I kinda wanted to play too. I like when dogs come to the door and I get to pet them. She was waiting for me on the porch though and the dogs were behind the glass door.

A bunch of bland deliveries with two dollar (and one zero dollar) tips. Have I mentioned how much I hate our current promotion? It encourages low-bill deliveries. Now that I think about it, only one of my six deliveries yesterday had a total over $16 and that was the lady who tipped $5. When the total is only 13.00, most people only tip $2, which is disheartening when it happens over and over again.

I made $22 off of 6 deliveries, a tip average of $2.38.

So your car needs new shocks/brakes/oil change and you can't afford it. You call that being a responsible adult?

Doug: People have kids and can't afford them. I'm certainly more responsible than that. It's not even like I got a puppy knowing that I couldn't take care of it. I know in the long run that I need to find the money to do the maintenance on my car, but at the same time, I don't know what that has to do with responsibility. Responsible to who?
