    i tried every restaurant within a reasonable distance from my house and no dice. no where will hire someone with no serving / bussing experience.

    delivering pizzas is my only option. i have a real efficient car ('04 honda civic) that i don't use nearly enough. i never claimed to be car-free, and i'll take any job i can get.

    I'm not so sure if that would be acceptable in the eyes of pizza hut/dominos.

    Cold, late pizza. Just the ticket to a big tip.

    Thanks
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I delivered for a few local pizza places by bike near my college campus. I tried to make sure they saw the bike, since that seemed to increase tips. A big national chain might not go for it... but I think it was sometimes much faster than car delivery. it just depends on how far you are going

    You always have to lie to get your first waiting/bussing job if you don't have a friend that works there or something. Telling them you worked catering in another town is a good way to get around them wanting to know exactly where you worked, though there's not a lot of actual calling of references in the food service industry unless they're friends with management or owners at your last job.

    all my delivering will be done in the suburbs, where i might have to ride forty-five minutes to deliver a pizza when i could have just hopped on the highway and got there in five in my car. i'm pretty sure i'll be able to do a good night's worth of delivering for ten bucks, cause that's usually what a good five hours of driving smoking pot costs in gas.

    i'm going in on tuesday to talk money / pick hours with the boss. just think of how many porn-esque situations i'll get into with this job! way more than my other job making cheesesteaks at school i bet!

    porn-esque is right. especially if it's a pizza with anchovies.
