In twisted irony, that's exactly how at least one of those beachgoers is likely to wind up. I daresay that enforcement of social distancing rules will be an uphill battle, with many people claiming that their rights are being infringed upon.@Jenny Cassada wrote:
I see the city slickers hauling all their stuff to the beach. You won't catch me dead anywhere out there this weekend.

I am dying for a haircut. I needed one before everything was shut down. The other day I just got tired of it and cut about six inches off.
It's Memorial Day "down the shore" and even though we're in the middle of a pandemic, tons of people came into town and have taken over as they always do. It poured last night and now that it's bright and sunny, I see the city slickers hauling all their stuff to the beach. You won't catch me dead anywhere out there this weekend.
You are probably going to be the best instacart shopper ever. They are the lowest of the low here. Sometimes, they will bring melted ice cream (I have seen posts from my neighbors), take 3 hours to deliver (hence all cold items are warm) or simply just not deliver at all. A lot of them mark items that are in-stock, as out of stock. I think that a lot of the instacart shoppers ruined it for everyone. I saw some receipts from neighbors who were tipping (NO LIE) $50 per delivery because they were scared that nobody would pick up their orders with normal tips.@HonnyBrown wrote:
I did my first Instacart job today. It was 4 items and the store was close to home. I like the concept, but the jobs get snapped up instantly. I would have to stay glued to my phone to get work. Nope. Also, because the job has to be accepted right away, there is no looking at the details.
The Amazon job starts tomorrow. I'm preparing for that: laundry, cooking stuff for lunch and snacks, mapping out my route, etc.
SCM, I can understand that. A lot of people don't know how to shop. Frozen and chilled items have to be shopped last. Also, it helps to know the layout of the store. Instacart doesn't give that information. We also don't get the delivery location until later.
For instance, my client wanted organic cabbage. A non-shopper would look in the organic section and mark it as not available. It's in the salad section.
Knowing the layout of the store helps tremendously to cut down on shopping time. I didn't take an assignment at Petco because I don't shop there personally and don't know the layout.
Also, I don't buy items that I wouldn't buy for myself. One fake meat item had small puncture holes in the top. I didn't get that for the client.
When the locations hit the board, we have to take them right away or lose them. After we accept the assignment, we see how many items we need to buy. We don't know the exact location of the delivery until later. This can also increase total time.
