I spent five years as a cabbie in the big city.
We called ourselves “hacks” and no one knew their way around the city as well as we did.
There is good money to be made in driving a cab, but there are always risks involved. Robberies of taxis are much lower than ever before, because there is a lot less cash involved these days, and cash is the easiest thing to steal. Even with that, I was tired of the hustle and bustle, so when I had an opportunity to become a delivery driver for a cannabis dispensary, I jumped at the chance. Let me tell you, everyone is always mad at the cabbie because they are running late, but now everyone is happy to see me, because I come bearing cannabis. It makes a big difference on my emotional well being to have customers appreciate me, and not berate me. I know that they are only happy about the cannabis showing up, but there is still a psychological effect for me. Long story short, I am happier delivering cannabis than I ever was driving a taxi, and the tips are a lot better. Seriously, if you are a pro driver like me, you can do very well for yourself with the right cannabis dispensary in the right market. I have some customers that buy over a thousand dollars worth of cannabis, and they do this on a monthly basis. These people tend to be very happy to get their cannabis, and be very generous with giving me tips.
