So today, I’m out doing some driving it snowed yesterday. It was really beautiful, but no driving was accomplished I did make a cool video though Post mates versus ubereats, I really like that but um Ya know. I am waiting in the LA Fitness parking lot and I’m uh It’s kind of near a hot spot And I’m just waiting on a tour – delivery I was debating on doing post mates, but I’m a little lazy I don’t feel like driving downtown so I’m just waiting now a cool thing that I noticed was door – has a special promotion with line bike So they’re doing these trials where? you can enroll in a In a trial program that gives you 15 free days of riding with a line bike So I am going to Ride lime bike on March 1st in downtown Seattle. I’m going to go pro. I want to be doing the whole thing I’m gonna do some reviews on my experience riding the e bikes for line bike In downtown Seattle, so hopefully that will be fun alright. I mean who knows going to let the top down Because I’m bored and it’s a blue a Blue day out there who’s Scott Well, this is one alternative, but this is the kit lens that I have with it And you know it’s not terrible and it does have the advantage to that You know another thing I’ve been doing is leaving the camera on manual even when I’m in the video Maybe I should leave it on automatic when I’m in the video I Want to see what it looks like when I shoot myself I’m dark Perfect as rain Yeah, I don’t know why I haven’t been doing that well the plan was a dude or – there, but I have no idea why they even pause my They saying they gave me an order They gave me an order oh Okay, I have an order Everest for only $6.50 and normally I would reject a $6 in 50 cent corridor even though it’s super close But I’m trying to get my acceptance rating above 80% again So I am going to accept so we’re off Okay, so I’m off to do this pick up at the Royal Everest Indian place of Nepal Nepalese place probably and You know there’s one thing that I wanted to talk about that’s been on my mind recently and that is The post mates and door – referral programs So let’s say that you’re doing All three all three well, you know three of the food delivery platforms if you’re doing If you’re doing post mates door – and glue breeds And you want to refer someone which is the best Platform to refer someone well doordash does an interesting little trick Where they say that you’re referring as 30 days After sign up, it’s a complete X number of trips, right? To add in order to my around cool So you know so you’re referring signs up for door – He or she Then proceeds to Wait up to two weeks to get their information in the mail Once they get their stuff, and they’re ready to go well. They only have two weeks to do a hundred delivery runs or 50 or 40 or whatever the number may be Well you would think that? the door – refer e thing would start as soon as The the new – er is Actually able to drive, but that is not how it works right so they they trick you a little bit It so yeah, I do want to comment on that post mates is similar in the sense that Post mates requires you to And I’m looking for the restaurant right now Oh PO space has a time limit, so it’s like Oh complete X amount of deliveries within X amount of days But these time limit Referrals are very hard to actually accomplish Because a lot of people do this part-time Some people You know Some people won’t just won’t drive for post mates Everyday or won’t be full-time post mates people But that doesn’t mean that You know if they do 100 deliveries. They weren’t valuable to post mates. You know what I mean All right oh I forgot my – okay Can’t really do much without this. Can we got to have the batter, okay? Well Everest? Although this is cool the Royal Everest has a deal with door – so You won’t actually need to pay once you’re here. Just kind of awesome No one here wow it smells so good here Because I’m waiting for the food I make sure to send the customer text Got the order finally and you know they were actually on time, it’s just that I was so close that I got to order pretty early so Yep, so I sent the text to the customer and now I’m gonna go deliver it, but I also had a second delivery Which I probably should have went ahead and picked up the food from the other delivery while I was waiting uh I wasn’t quick on my feet that time, so we’ll see what happens Door – wants me to go up to Other restaurant first before I deliver it all the first orders pickup And so I’m gonna go to huckleberry and pick up this food and yeah And do that before dropping off the first quarter So batch orders aren’t awesome. I always celebrate when I get them because They allow me to make much more money for And in in the shortest time as I possibly can the only downside with batch orders is especially because now door – is calculating your on time rate If you have batch orders and one of the one of the orders is delay it like that one If you have to wait five ten minutes to pick up the first order Well your second order may end up being late, and if your second order is late it hurts. You’re on time read a Door – hasn’t quite come out and said that we could be fired for our on-time rating being low But I don’t want to take that chance and in fact, I think I’m gonna call door – And I’m gonna go to like one of those – the onboarding location And I’m going to talk to somebody a person to ask them about this On time except on time rating to see if This is something that we should be worried about being fired from the platform for so I don’t know we’ll see I’m definitely going to do that though But okay, we are on our way to huckleberry This parking lot is so here. There’s no space to even Go there or the people parked really oddly But okay look. We’ve arrived an aqua berry restaurant really quickly. It was really really close by Let’s go ahead and go in here and pick us up on delivery. I want to bring my bag in it All right So I got my bag filled up here to the brim with two orders and two of the orders both have brown bags But luckily I remembered which one is which and now it’s off to delivery these guys Yeah, so sometimes you have to deal with slow waitstaff Especially with door – deliveries it seems And of course you got to go to the door But at least if you’re in an area That is less populated like I like I’m dealing with here in Burien And not downtown Seattle the drop-off locations typically are easier If you are downtown the downtown has a lot of apartment complexes with access codes Got to go up flights of stairs and all this type of stuff, but Here in West Seattle. There is a lot of homes Not very many apartment complexes So the drop-offs tend to be a little bit easier, so we’ll see about this particular drop-off All right fucking go go go go – god and uh um and of course you have to deal with road rage from Target ah I know I have to deal with it a lot because I don’t know if it’s like this everywhere in the country but There are a lot of impatient drivers here in Seattle and though You know even if you’re driving at the speed limit, or above the speed limit It doesn’t matter then we’ll get right on your behind, and they will sit there Indefinitely even if you move over now and see it’s kind of funny cuz when I moved over It wasn’t like the guy wanted to speed He just did like three miles per hour faster than what I was going. I mean it relaxed me and give me some space But as I said that I know I was jinxing myself because as I said in West Seattle the parking There’s not a lot of apartment complexes This deliver this delivery is to an apartment complex it seems like So I will have to deliver this order see what apartment I’m gonna take the other food out for the other there goes delivery And all the parking here is not going to be the best And so because it’s so complicated like this You know I have to drive kind of crazy figure out a way park Then I have to figure out what door to go to Because the Google Maps I’m gonna show you guys this here a second Even as this guy almost hits me in the back because Okay, so what happens is when you go to an apartment complex It’ll show just like the center of the complex But it doesn’t show where the dory is on Google Maps So you kind of have to like look around and kind of figure that part of it out yourself But where the door is? So sometimes like if you were to go to one 51st Street over here You’d be far away, or if you go, so you just kind of have to Figure it out, and there’s no fast way to do it if you go to a place. You’ve never been before So I’m gonna go ahead and call the customer and have her come down to get her food oh This is your – sure I’ve arrived it’s set to call you when I’m here What will I meet you downstairs? Yeah Okay, I’ll see you soon Okay, bye And of course another downside with the batch deliveries and the rating system If you’re waiting for a client like this You can just be waiting and waste your time all you have another delivery on deck. It’s you have to meet your delivery deadline bar So yeah, that’s what I’m doing now. Just walking around and week All right first delivery complete in that batch order Now I am going to go deliver the other I Have a I have a really big catering bag And it’s kind of awkward just to keep around So But usually if I know that I’m gonna do a batch order or two, I’ll get the big catering bag out But um This is a little awkward if you only have one regular bag And you get a free catering bag once you do dry deliveries if you go to your onboarding station Okay, so let’s see I Am 11 minutes away And I have to deliver it in 10 minutes, so There you go, I’m 11 minutes away, and I have ten minutes to deliver it Okay So yeah oh Great Yeah, so there you go You can see how the job can be a little bit stressful since I have ten minutes to get To an 11 minute delivery And sometimes I resort to doing illegal stuff like this open good. I don’t get pulled over In the wrong way Okay, so yeah, this is just a day of my life a day in the life of the – I Definitely should have recorded that because they opened a gate for me. That was kind of cool All right, so we’re heat and as long as I deliver it within five minutes be good to go All right so the second order the batch was delivered, and you know one cool thing the girl had a shirt on That um that was a YouTube shirt, so she must have been a youtuber which is awesome Because now I’m starting to think of myself as a youtuber interestingly enough So yeah, okay, so I did those two deliveries, and I am done 16 dollars and seventy seven cents For about what was that mmm? forty minutes worth of work or so Not too bad not too bad Dental locations were both pretty short, so it wasn’t like a lot of gas, so there you go Door – vlog or today?
