"Let's all be careful out there!"



Last night was one run shorter, $5 less. and another "no pay".

Pretty genial crowd. Lots of FITs (Financially Independent Travelers) at the hotels. "Crazy Brian" is in San Diego, with his lady, for some concert. We had three dayshift holdovers that started calling it a night between 9:00pm and 10:30pm. After 10:30pm it was only "TMR Alex" and myself. We were never swamped but also never stopped moving until a little after "bar close". Racked up 145 miles on the odometer and almost $1.90 per mile driven. That is an excellent ratio.

Never left the southside all night but covered almost every inch of it on my rounds.

Last night's "no pay" was a worker at one of the restaurants in "The Triangle". I took his wallet as collateral and will collect $30 tonight (Friday).

The "no pay" from Wednesday night called me at home about 6:25pm. I was just getting out of the shower. Now, if you remember, I had told her that I don't start work until 7:00pm but she was demanding that I meet her in 10 minutes at the far northend of Kihei. When I told her that we could meet about 7:30pm, she became indignant and told me to forget about getting the $7.10 from her and that she was cancelling her credit card. Probably had made arrangements for a "local" bullyboy to be there as a threat to me. I always follow the rule that collateral for cash exchanges are made in an open public space with lots of people around. I may have been born at night but it wasn't last night. Mrs. Kyle's beautiful baby boy wasn't raised as an idiot. [wink]

So if anyone knows HAZEL S. DELVILLAR, let her know that she is a deadbeat loser.

Oh, I cut up the credit card and threw it out in the trash and today is collection day. [BIG SMILE]
