I'm going to quit my day job and become a doorman at the Ritz Carlton Hotel

I picked up a young man in my rideshare vehicle who told me how much money he makes in tips as a doorman at the Ritz Carlton Hotel and I quickly realized I am in the wrong line of work!

"I made $150 in tips today and it is just a regular day," he said.

Son of a bitch!

I could work an entire day some days as a Rideshare driver and not make that kind of money, I thought.

Now I understand why he drives his Ford Mustang to work. A gas guzzler, he says, spending at least 60 bucks every two days on gas. He gets that money in tips.

In just one day during the Super Bowl, I made over $1,000 in tips. He said.

To hell with rideshare driving! I need to get me a job as a doorman at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
