Why replace your car for a summer job? A dumbass summer job. A stupid f*ckin' dumbass TEMPORARY summer job. Was that the best job you could find? Geez.... $800+ per pay period? You must get paid monthly, because I doubt you'd bank that every 2 weeks delivering pizzas, and I know for damn sure you ain't gettin' that every week. Are you depending on tips? HAHAHAH!! You'll learn...or maybe you're delivering pizzas that call for "extra anchovies"....hmmmm....
Get a car you like, not for a summer job.
well first of all, mostly to enthusiast. I am building a pontiac grand prix as a project car, ill worry about fun to drive later on
and second of all, I will
be getting 800+ each pay, (bi-weekly)
$7 an hour + at least 45 hrs a week + 3 dollars for each house I deliver to + 100% of tips in my pocket
45+45= 90 -- 90 x 7 = 630 dollars every two weeks just for working there
+ 3 dollars per house + tips, lets say each person gives me a dollar tip, (some will not tip at all, some will tip a lot) and I deliver to 50 houses in a whole working day
3 x 50 = 150
150 + 50 (tips) 200
630 + 200 = 830 dollars every two weeks, assuming my average tip is one dollar, and also assuming I dont work any overtime or break 45 hours per week
the three dollars per house goes for gas (3 houses is 9 dollars, 9 dollars is around 8 litres of gas, I bareley burn a fraction of that driving 3 places in my small town ) Ill get off work every day with a tank of gas and a pocket full of change lol, besides the $630 going to my bank account
but I made this thread a few days ago, ive been talking to my dad and he made me realize ill save money in the long run just keeping the car I drive now ( in perfect shape ) instead of screwing around finding another car
and he has a point, although my car is boring to drive, it wouldnt be worth my time to sell it and go looking for something else
so yeah, probably my longest post ever
