    Shocking developments en la vida loca?!@#

    Isn't it amazing jon finally has a real job?

    I deliver papers for the San francisco chronicle. We get paid a 1000$ per month per route we take on. We deliver at 1:30-6:30 in the morning.

    My first route is telegraph hill, it's the hardest route. If anyone's been there its a huge maze, and for some streets we have to deliver off of steps. We got trained on it last night, and me and my friend are going to take it solo tonight.

    I delivered papers for a friend who needed someone to cover his route for a week he was going to be out on vacation.

    The pay was okay but holy crap, being awake that early sucked @$$...

    Well once we know our route well it should be about 1:30am-3am roughly. We got stuck with such a confusing route, im trying to print off detailed maps of telegraph hill so tonight we can solo this motha. Cool part is how we have a view of embarcadero and the bridge and the water right from the rich white neighborhood. Originally the plan was to do a route and get a job in the day. The whacky hours is going to be hard for me sleep wise. Most likely we'll take a second route and just do this for now.

    I heard you make good cash if you have a pickup or van.

    However... make sure your insurance covers commercial use of a vehicle. A lot don't.

    Wait....1000$ a month for a route. If you drove that would be like the gas money for the route plus a couple extra dollars. You got me excited about it I almost considered looking into it over here.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Well when the route is in your neighborhood... and you have 2 routes... You wouldn't drive half an hour away to do it, you use not much gas going around a 4-5 block radius.

    Watch out for dudes breakdancing on the sidewalk, kids on trikes, fire hydrants, and crazy people on rollerblades.

    And remember, you get extra points for throwing the paper in the mailbox, as opposed to the front porch.

    I'd totally do it if it was in my neighborhood. Where do you go to find out? Assuming some place like the newspaper makers.
