I love this thread, this is an awesome question.

Way back I was flat broke, working for a bit above minimum in a warehouse (probably making $6/hr when minimum was $3.35) a friend suggested driving for Dominos. There was a store less than a mile from my apartment, and I owned a car. Went in, got the job, drove that night and the best part was that I walked away with real cash. I'd been struggling for a year and delivering pizza was the job that got me actually being able to make ends meet. The best part was the tips are in cash and you take home cash each night (back then they paid a mileage fee per delivery and that paid out in cash as well). I still remember that first night, I walked out cash in hand and the first thing I did was went to the supermarket and bought some food, because I had absolutely none in the house.

I wonder about Uber as an income source. I was pretty vehemently against Uber but then thinking about it, I realized it's basically the same as delivering pizza. You're providing the capital in the form of your car, and it's hell on your car, but it's a tip-driven business and it's got to be highly dependent on your hustle.

With the price wars going on, drivers are making shit money these days as the prices drop lower and lower. An Uber driver now has to work 3 times as much to make what he did before.

In other words, the more you drive the less you make due to expenses and lower pay.

Rent's due and owe bookie are two very different levels of urgency. If it was the kneecap-shattering kind, I'd go with medical guinea pig that pays over a grand. That, or mug people.

Whore yourself out to 10 fat chicks for $100 a piece. Or one REALLY fat chick for $1,000.

What? Fat chicks need lovin' too... But they gotta pay.
