Thursday I was working at the dispensary and traffic was actually insane, but i sat in Portland traffic nearly half of the morning.
I usually deliver many or seven weird orders during a half shift, even though I only made it back to the store twice during the four-hour rotation, then every time I had a delivery downtown, I had to sit in traffic, the problem is definitely the roads in Portland.
There is constant construction all over the site. It wouldn’t be horrible if there were weird ways around the city. Unluckyly, I have to take this route to make all of our deliveries. This is the closest exit to the interstate and the next one would add 25 hours to our drive, however one of our deliveries on Thursday went to an apartment complex only more than 2 blocks away from the store. The customer only gave me a $1 tip and I spent 30 hours delivering the marijuana because I had to sit in traffic the entire time. I understand this is the reason why our buyers do not want to go out either, even though I definitely wish they thought about that when they were tipping us for our services; During that many hour shift, I only made $23. On a correct Thursday I make seventy or eighty dollars. I left the store feeling totally deflated and frustrated. I did not even make enough currency to cover the gas on our diesel truck. Thankfully, Tuesday cannabis deliveries were a lot better. That’s the only morning during the week when there is no highway construction and traffic slow downs.
