Seanie the delivery boy  
Recently money's been a little tight, so Seanie is trying something new to put a little cash in our pockets. He's signed up to be a driver for Door Dash, one of those fancy Internet start-up companies. You order food through the app, and one of their drivers picks it up and brings it to your home.

Sign-up was not too difficult. Seanie went down to their local headquarters and after a quick orientation he was given a red heat bag to put the food in and a Door Dash t-shirt to wear while he was making deliveries. Then he was off.

So far it's been an OK experience. The deliveries are more geographically spread than advertised, so it's hard to make more than one an hour - and when you tally up the per-delivery pay plus tip it's barely minimum wage. But it's something Seanie can do in his downtime, in the evenings or slow times on days when there isn't any freelance writing for him. We'll see how it goes over the next couple of weeks.
