I’ve been finally working a delivery job for the past six months.
- When the virus hit, many jobs disappeared while others opened up overnight.
The call for new delivery drivers was far and vast. My job finally working for a travel supplier disappeared completely, and I thankfully had years of delivery experience under my hat when I delivered prescriptions for a large pharmacy in my university years. It was a good gig at the time because most of my clients were wealthy elderly people who left large tips. So when I saw so many delivery jobs open after the start of the pandemic, I made a choice right then and there to apply for one of these positions. Within a week I had managed to schedule a few sit downs with many of them being bustling cannabis shops that were forced to close their main rooms because of statewide lockdowns. To survive, they desperately had to transition their business model of walking around shopping to delivery and pickup orders. Now I’m all over the neighborhood every single day, and that’s why I’ve switched to buying mostly vaporizer pens with THC oil whenever I got to the local weed store. Although I get cannabis flower products for at-condo marijuana consumption, I need something little and camouflaged that I can use in the car in between delivery stops. I constantly get oil pens with CBD added so the intoxicating effects are minimal. It’s so I can relieve the back pain from sitting for a long time, not to get “high” in the traditional sense of the term.
