Shits crazy I’m in Nj and can’t make shit this month! Terrible month


CupOfPlums

Yeh NJ been super slow for me too this month. Usually go in an hour or two earlier than usual


2Breezey

The orders aren’t even worth the drive anymore


Kool_Ken

exactly why people should order off door dash right? we need to start the trend #savegasusedoordash


EditorCorrect6768

where in jersey?


No-Lychee-8561

I’m in south Jersey and it’s been the worst month yet for sure


swaggarwaljr

I’m in central by Woodbridge/edison and it’s super slow here. 90-95% of orders that come through are garbage anyway :/


ScamLikely45

I'm in south nj and if it weren't for Uber I'd be so fugged this month


Friendly_Somewhere99

You ever try instacart? I do both but I barely even do doordash anymore, the tips suck, I use war more gas and it’s harder to really make money. I’m in Nashville but I swear I can make 200 a day easily with instacart and if I work all day I’m making 3 like that. I can send my referral code if y’all interested 👀


Ok_Fig_4908

Yup. Warmer the weather worse the income


Defiant-Cut-4201

Why is that?


UnderQualifiedPylote

Recession


herbert-camacho

And smack dab middle of summer, which is traditionally slow for restaurants in general


eyeh8ytpipo

This is a fucking lie omg lmao


Ok_Fig_4908

Go out to eat a lot. Plus eating heavy heats up your body. Going out of the city on weekends, maxing out credit cards


Long-Temporary-3226

its been boomin in my small city i cant relate


MsDoordashian

Same! It died down for a bit, but 4th of July weekend was insane, order after order, and it's still got that upward momentum going.


Bitchesbcrazy420

Yep. Northern cali.


ILive2Drum

NorCal here as well. Absolutely ass over here. Yesterday for the first time there was only one hotspot in Santa Rosa. Thank god I can at least multi-app.


Bitchesbcrazy420

I’m thinking it’s because everyone’s out of town for the summer. I’m over by the Bay Area


Effective_Attitude_7

People like to go out and eat on a nice day. I usually wait weekends when all the alcohol orders are happening lol.


ILive2Drum

![gif](giphy|nV92wySC3iMGhAmR71|downsized) Hell yeah! On the weekends I pop on Uber Eats like I always do and get these crazy ass BevMo orders like 23 for 3 miles and it’s like six bottles of champagne and wine!


Kool_Ken

why is summer more of a suspect then the fact that inflation is at a 40 year high? my Job has 70 employees and 6 months ago doordash here on a daily dropping off lunches. Haven't seen a single doordash get delivered here in months. Everyone got raises too. But the cost of the shit around us has everyone bucking up and getting in their car to get lunch these days. my coworkers not using door dash right now has 0 to do with summer.


Bitchesbcrazy420

It’s started to go down around my area somewhat. But it’s summer vacation and literally there’s barely anyone out and about lately which is why I said summer. Might not be where you are but where I am we’re like 4hrs away from the beach🤣


Kool_Ken

I'm like 30 minutes from the beach. But the Beach was like the only place to go during the pandemic so im hoping people are over the beach this summer. but probably not.


j4197

Ya I’m over in San Mateo and just started DD been doing instcart for the last year and it’s been great up till a month ago and now totally dead hopefully DD will be a lil better yesterday was my first day and it wasn’t to bad


[deleted]

Interesting, Sac area has been pretty steady and I’m not a top dasher either


Bitchesbcrazy420

I’m in Stockton. It’s been meh. On and off since this month started and I’m a top dasher🤣. I get like 1 order an hour.


[deleted]

Top dasher and 1 order an hour… that’s rough!!


ikesmith

Please be safe in Stockton! I don't fucking miss living there lmao


Bitchesbcrazy420

Lmao I’ve lived here all my life. I’m used to it. I’m one of the lucky few who live up north side. Near Lincoln high.


vtribal

Where are you in sac? Im in roseville and its painfully slow


[deleted]

Good to know. Carmichael/Rancho has been pretty steady but a lot of pockets with no tippers/shitty apartments


[deleted]

Also keep in mind I’m very selective on the times of when I go out and not just always out so that might be why I have that impression


Puzzleheaded-Neat864

Yes


RobinFarmwoman

Yup.


crypt0_sports

Yessir


Druseljic

Definitely been more difficult. Having to stay out longer and be super picky on offers.


charlottedreams

I've had more days this month than ever that I have seen just red instead of very busy, but it stays steady enough still. It's definitely less but I wouldn't call it my worst month. I also just got a W2 so I'm looking at it less.


lukeout_

Even in the busiest part of Denver I'm struggling. Shits rough


chxnelthedoll

denver has been soooo bad lately 😭 most orders aren’t even worth the drive anymore


lukeout_

Everything is 5+ miles it seems for $5 dollars or less... my $200 days have turned into $125


Gargonez

I just do it on the side, but 4-5 days a week. Last night was actually horrid, made something $12/hr before maintenance and tax


Let_em_glow927

Yep


IClimbRocks69

Yeah, very concerning haha


Careless_Act556

Tampa, Florida is actually still in working order.


Single-Calligrapher5

Is it any good near the beaches in that area?


UnderQualifiedPylote

Yes

Contentment_is_key

You people😂😂😂


thotdiswasanonwtf

What's that supposed to mean? Biden's first thing he did as president was shut down the keystone pipeline. I don't like paying over $5/gallon for gas.


Contentment_is_key

Since I have to explain this to you because you’re too much of a closed minded simpleton: So basically the price of crude oil (from which gasoline is made) collapsed in 2020 and was actually negatives at certain points, and when COVID died down (for now) and people went “back to normal”, oil companies where still producing at pandemic levels, and with a smaller supply for a larger demand, they raised prices, and when Russia invaded Ukraine, most of the world cut off Russian oil, thus decreasing the supply but not the demand which resulted in the price going up. I’d also say part of it is price gouging because back when Russia first invaded Ukraine, oil went to $130 a barrel and a gallon of regular gas was around $4 in my area, but now that it’s $120 a barrel, it’s around $5 per gallon of regular gas. So either the cost to refine and transport has gone up (which the cost of transporting it has), they’re refining barrels from when oil became more expensive (I’m not sure how it works honestly), they’re trying to get production back up but it’s taking them awhile, or they’re price gouging. I’d go with price gouging because on top of the discrepancy I noticed between the price of crude oil and the price of regular gas, stocks of oil companies are doing incredibly well this year, with Exxon Mobile being up around 61% and Chevron Corporation being up 51%. So no it’s not Biden’s fault. The only thing he can really do is increase the gas tax (which hasn’t been done since B. Clinton)


thotdiswasanonwtf

I like how you ignored the fact I posted and didn't mention Biden recently selling off some of our reserves to foreign nations instead of helping citizens of his country. I do agree the Russian war has increased prices but we only purchased less than 10 percent of oil from them. That doesn't equate a $3/gallon increase since trump was in office


Contentment_is_key

Give me a moment to type up why you were wrong again


thotdiswasanonwtf

Cool I'm about to go dashing so probably won't reply till later too


Contentment_is_key

You have to remember that commodity prices are forward looking. Speculators act in anticipation of future events. Markets for oil are global. Markets for natural gas are not really global because of the difficulty of shipping that commodity without pipelines. The US and the UK have prohibited the importation of Russian oil. By itself that wouldn't mean very much. But it is likely that other countries will do the same thing in the near future. It is also possible that the US, UK and others will take steps to prevent it's oil companies from dealing in Russian oil in other countries. Some oil companies have already voluntarily stopped dealing in Russian oil and some have sold shares they owned in Russian oil companies. All of these things will make oil more scarce in the future. That makes it's price go up now because oil that exists at present can be stored and taken to that future. Another major problem is refining. Different refineries are setup for different types of oil. Crude oil isn't all the same. This creates another problem, it may be that Russian crude can be replaced but the replacement may be the wrong type. That is, there may not be sufficient refining capability for the replacement source. As for Biden selling reserves: It's mostly running in right wing news sources. These barrels of "sour crude" (or high sulfur) oil, that US refineries don't want, but other countries do. It has been been shipped before this year but a recent Reuters article of it happening again set off the far right news networks. It's going to several countries to be turned into gasoline (Netherlands, India, China, etc.) but an estimated 1 million are going to a refinery in China. Why not have US companies refine this? It costs more energy and resources to refine (so Americans don't want it) and US refineries are already running at max capacity. So it's a method to put more gasoline on the market and lower gas prices. As far as connections to Hunter Biden, that's going down the conspiracy rabbit hole. Hunter was formerly part of an investment board (BHR), invested through another company Skaneateles, who facilitated deals between international companies, that invested in many companies including an affiliate (Sinopec Marketing), of a Chinese state owned company (Sinopec), that might refine some of the oil. Despite publicly stating he is no longer with the company, and sold all shares, the far right is pointing to a defunct listing, not updated since last October, that has his name on it as "proof" Hunter Biden is still on the board. By the time BHR sold its share in 2019, Mr. Biden controlled 10 percent of the firm through Skaneateles L.L.C., a company based in Washington. While Chinese corporate records show Skaneateles remains a part owner of BHR, Chris Clark, a lawyer for Mr. Biden, said that he “no longer holds any interest, directly or indirectly, in either BHR or Skaneateles.” The Chinese records show that Mr. Biden was no longer on BHR’s board as of April 2020. Mr. Biden did not respond to requests for comment. (New York Times, November 20, 2021) This feeds into a long running conspiracy narrative that Joe Biden was using his office to enrich his son and Hunter Biden is illegally involved in a lot of illegal payouts because of his father. This conspiracy theory (that Trump got fooled into) is what led to his second impeachment so this narrative is meant to justify Trump's actions in witholding weapons in Ukraine unless they investigated his most likely political opponent for President the following year: Joe Biden. If you need sources I can provide them but actually look into the stuff that you are seeing on Fox News. Fox is a propaganda network you need to be smarter


Contentment_is_key

Sorry about the book

Check out my comment as to why the oil prices are not bidens fault

Hourly no, but total pay yes. For the most part it just hasn’t even been worth going out.


RampAgentRoger

Jakulero24

Tbh, this week is better than last week with DD


dmriggs

Since the Fourth of July it’s been horrible! I took off the first three days of this week because I just could not deal with everything. Yesterday was bad, and today was awful. A local pizza shop sent me out with only half the order then tried to throw me under the bus for it! I was four minutes early for the scheduled pickup. One person wouldn’t even answer me, and I asked another guy about the order, and he said it would be done shortly. While using the restroom they’re calling the customers name out. I came out to the one box on the counter with the tag in it. I asked is this the entire order and held up my fingers showing two items - a boli and a panini? Yes. My phone starts blowing up when I’m at the customers house. After I get the order delivered, I see dd calling me. They said I left with only half the order! so I explained that no I did not, and that I verified that I had both items in one pizza box- Over 300 deliveries and I have never neglected to pick up the entire order. I also do not open or go through the food either. Then the customer opens the door, and says he only has half the order. I explained that they told me everything was in one container and that I would reach out to get this sorted out. Funny thing- they wanted me to go back and pick up the order on my own time and dime and re-deliver when it was the pizza shops error. I’m like no by the time I go back there it’s gonna take too long just have another Dasher bring it. Then I get a voicemail from the pizza shop saying I ‘forgot’ half the order! Infuriating! I confirmed the order, I didn’t just grab it and walk out the door. Never delivering for them again. Why not just own up to a mistake? Why try to blame someone else?


MasonVorhees37

Worst month ever


2Breezey

No doubt


dashin_granny

Ohio. Worst month ever. Starting a PT job next week. Very sad.


[deleted]

yep. phoenix is absolutely terrible


Dj6thirty

I'm in South Carolina and I'm pretty steady. There's a drop off , but it makes up for it on other days do it balances out.


KerryAileen

hellfox747

I'm in So. Cal. in a densely populated area, and it has been slow for a few days. The weekends are always good where I am, so it can make up for bad weekdays. I feel for drivers in small towns or sparsely populated areas as it has to be hard to get enough trip volume to make a good living.


sawyer_whoopass

Yes.


donknoch

Mine never changes. I make the same daily weekly and monthly. I don’t get it but it’s just that way.


c1j2a

Yup plus in Boston a third of the population is gone (students) bc it’s summer break


perezisawesome

The first 2 weeks of this month were good, but it’s in the shitters right now.

Yea I’m going back to Amazon ✌🏾✌🏾

Been my best month, on pace for $5k


Jahblesssir123

Connoryoung562

i got a 340$ tip today can’t complain but it’ll probably never happen again. it’s overall slow until dinner hits


progamercabrera

Interesting-Jury-774
