There’s only one road in and out of the city, and an accident means a lot of slowdowns and traffic. The only road coming in and out of the city is the way that I have to travel to get to my job at the marijuana delivery service. I usually leave about 35 minutes before I have to be at work, so I can make sure to arrive on time. Last week I had to work on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. and I left my house around 5:15. I gave myself an extra few minutes because I knew the roads were going to be busy. It’s always busy in the afternoon when people are on their way home from work. There was an accident on the side of the highway and damages were severe enough to shut down the road. I called my boss at the marijuana delivery service to let her know that I was running late. She made me take a picture of the traffic to prove to her that I wasn’t lying. I honestly thought she was being unreasonable, but I wasn’t lying so it was no big deal to send the picture. I didn’t end up getting to work until almost 7:30 and by then most of the deliveries had already left the building. My boss found some stock room work for me to do while I was there, but I only ended up taking four deliveries that day. I didn’t even make enough money in tips to cover all of my gas for the day.
