    Does any one here participate in the "gig" economy?

    I've decided to jump in and start charging bird scooters and doing door dash. Also gonna start charging lime scooters as well after I've seen how the bird scooter thing goes for me. I also donate plasma on my first off day every week which is Thursdays. I've decided to try to start trying to make money and use it as an excuse to get out of the house.

    Never heard of bird scooters or door dash or lime scooters.

    Really? The scooters are in every major city. They’re battery powered scooters and you can rent them to get around using an app. People in DC and Baltimore use them all the time. I’ve only actually tried it once- it was a fun and fast way to get around when I didn’t want to walk 10 blocks on a hot day.

    And for the record, I can actually plan on retiring one day too. Why not help speed up the process?

    Yeah, idiot millennials. Back in my day we only needed one job to raise a family and live comfortably.

    Technically no cuz it’s illegal in most of the country. But it shouldn’t be.

    I get that but these things have been in the local news so much around here. It just didn’t occur to me that there are places that hadn’t heard about it yet.

    Okay good, at least you won't steal my drugs. I want some pot, a couple rocks of crack cocaine, and a bit of heroin. Please be discreet with your delivery.

    Fair enough. They’ve just been on the news and social media so much that I thought everyone knew about it by now.

    Not for me.

    I already can’t keep up with the wife.

    I was thinking of you making $5.00 a BJ with the old men.

    That's why your wife has a boyfriend.

    TBH that would have a way better hourly rate than working for Uber.
