If you're young, have a decent car, and need shorter more flexible hours, pizza delivery is great.

I worked for Dominos years ago. My car was a terrible one for delivery, the 05' GTO I still have today, but I still made much more there than I would of else where. I worked evenings during the week, then usually all day Saturday til the evening rush died down. Dominos did however change their wage for drivers around the time I left. I think drivers got 6.00/hr, but that could go up depending on how long you've been there. I think after a year it was 6.50, and could go back up to the normal minimum after enough years. 3.00+ for a delivery charge is ridiculous though. It was only $1.50 when I delivered and people already complained.

I will agree being a good tipper helps, even more so if you order often. Everyone in the store had memorized the address of the doctor/surgeon (he was always in scrubs) who tipped $20 for his $20-30 order. The ones who also stiffed us every time were also remembered. I'm not about to mess with someones food (though I can't speak for other drivers), but the address I was going to definitely affected the order of the deliveries I had.

I've always been a good tipper though. One way I've always thought about it is if you can't afford to give them a few extra bucks, you shouldn't be ordering in the first place. And since I delivered, I was able to appreciate how nice it was to get that $5 tip instead of a more common $2 tip.

Wish I was, but I get an advanced HS diploma and at most colleges I'll be automatically considered a sophomore, and I'll get almost full ride if not full ride.

Thought you were talking to me when I said I almost wanted to try that.

2nd column in the orange section is sophomore status upon admission, 1st column in yellow section is credits that I get for getting my IB diploma.

If you want to look up my school to see if its an IB school, it's Algonac High school in Michigan.

Yeah, not sifting through that website to figure out how it is 'above college level'


Or how it automatically entitles you to a full ride.

edit: I understand the IB stuff to an extent. It's somewhat similar to the AP courses. That was something I never denied.


I ask again though, which classes are you taking that are above college level? Can you teach me advanced reaction engineering?

lol...you're cute

let me know how that guaranteed full ride to the school of your choice goes

lou, they tried to recruit me into an IB program back in the day. it's basically busing kids in to buoy abysmal schools' grades. generally lower-tier schools with "aggressive" populations

I never claimed to be bursting with all the worlds knowledge. I know I don't know everything, unlike most 16 year olds

Do you know which school is giving you a full ride yet? I hear Northern Alabama is nice this time of year.

IB doesnt mean ****. I graduated the first year they put that in place and my counselor told me it doesn't mean **** its just another emblem on your deploma. Basically the same as ap but easier.

You might get to skip math/science basics in college but thats it.

NO, I'm not gonna get one to harvard, but for some of the good schools in michigan it helps out a lot. And I'm still gonna have to take the classes in college again, but it's the stuff I'm learning now.
