June is one of the busiest months for most businesses in San Francisco, because it is pride month.
- During pride month, San Francisco has millions of visitors.
People fill the streets and there are parties everywhere. It’s a lot of fun, but the traffic and the visitors can be a lot of hassle. The worst traffic in the world kept my sales at a minimum this weekend when I was hoping to make a killing. There was a parade downtown and I was scheduled to work at the San Francisco marijuana dispensary on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I had my e-bike charge up and ready to go. I was going to use my e-bike whenever the delivery was closeby. I planned to use my car when I had deliveries that were a great distance from the San Francisco marijuana dispensary location. Most of our deliveries occur in the afternoon and I always use my car. The traffic was crazy last weekend and I didn’t end up making as many deliveries as I wanted. I was hoping to make about $500, which is a reasonable goal when I am scheduled to work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Instead, I only made around $300. I can make that amount of money on any 3 days of the week. It was a huge blow to my ego and very humbling to be so incredibly wrong about the weekend tips. I had to cancel a couple of plans I made for the next week. I didn’t have nearly as much money as I thought I would when I was done making marijuana deliveries at the end of the weekend.
