After a 5 day, 30 gas station audit route I am relaxing with an easy Chinese meal for lunch.

It's raining today so I am staying home. That means I can bother y'all at my leisure.

I enjoy awkward questions and uncomfortable silences. This gas station pavement is $%^@*#& hot.
I am a new shopper. Thanks for all the good info. I hope it's ok to ask this:
Which companies have USPS, Chipotle and GW assignments?
You can ask all you want. However the only forum rule we have is not to name the clients of an MSC. Additionally most ICA agreements we sign with individual MSCs includes a non-disclosure agreement. So not only would answering that question be a violation of the forum rules but it would also be a violation of the contract with the MSC.

One of these companies is easily found by using Google ie [insert company name] mystery shopping. That's how I found it. I
Today I'm doing 4 Shell stations. It's a beautiful day to be outside working.

I am in Southampton. It is not a beautiful day here.

Not doing that. Yesterday, I had a blast in the tiny towns in the countryside. Technically, I worked. But all of it was fun. Pure fun. (Except for the wrenching moment when I pulled something in my back when I was trying to avoid having a sharp corner of a display piece pierce my blouse and etc. I s'pose that this pain in the back is better than a pain in the other.) I even found a much-wanted, old collectible book. Overall, it was a good day.

In a few weeks, I get to do this again-- in different towns, and with different tasks that do not include heavy display pieces that have sharp corners that can hurt the you-know-whats. Those will be good days.

I did my Goodwill shop today. It was 50% off for Rewards Members, so my 2 blazers, blouse and watch came to $12!

I love it when the clients take action on the suggestions made by shoppers. This store crammed so many clothes on the racks that they could not be moved aside to look at them. I noticed this when I shopped them a few months ago. This time, there was plenty of space on the racks.

I opened a new checking account ($75) and checked 60 grocery store prices
(0.12 ea.) onsite with a phone app. The bank was a breeze, but the grocery store was an absolute nightmare when my phone started acting really weird.
I broke my little toe so will not be doing any shopping until I can put a shoe on. DRAT! I have a ton of gas stations waiting on me.

That has to suck!

I'm in Manhattan today. I would prefer a broken toe.

I've got five pet store visits today - each with $20 reimbursement on top of fee. I love these shops - pay better than human grocery shops!! I will come home with $100 in dog food and I only have to interview one person, not every department in the store. I'm looking forward to driving around with the dogs this afternoon. Then on my way home I have a Modern Market take-out shop, where I will get dinner for myself.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's route that I have planned. I will be working in the Rockies all day (Vail, Breck, Frisco, Summit County). The drive will be beautiful and my mileage is being compensated by one of the MSC. I'll be mainly shopping banks on this route, with a gas station or two to replenish my tank. If all goes well this is a $400+ day. My daily record so far.

Shopping up and down the Colorado Rocky Mountain front range.
I did a 5 Guys dinner shop this evening after work. I will have the leftover cheeseburger and fries for dinner tomorrow night.

Saturday is Chipotle, and Tuesday is The Greene Turtle sports bar.

Can you get a temporary cast/boot thing to wear on that foot? It would cover your foot and part of your leg. You could walk in it. You would meet the requirement of a closed shoe. No one (not even the most persnickety editor) would dare to challenge you on this resourceful solution.

Anyway, I hope you feel better soon! smiling smiley

A web inquiry shop this morning, lunch with a hedgehog, a cash store, and a pizza dinner. Not bad.

The out-of-my-area, bonused pizza shop was a last minute addition as I took a friend to the airport and wanted to get some of my mileage paid for. smiling smiley

I whacked it while passing the laundry basket, which is an ancient model with a steel base. Then 3 nights later I whacked it again on a wall that juts out while getting up in the middle of the night. I apparently need to relearn walking. I was just recovering from the first injury but the second one broke it. I was just offered a SWEET route and had to turn it down.

Well even if that worked the walking part is still an issue. I can wander around the house a little but too much walking is quite painful. Thanks smiling smiley

Aw, coffee, feel better!

Have you tried putting it in a little splint to walk? I hate that you have to give up your shops.

I'll be at a casino in a while.... The last casino I did, turned out to be worth $100 plus a free meal.. Aiming for $200 tonight (the cards permitting)....
