At first I thought you meant that was the Ultimate Santa
Rudolph: looks like i’m gonna be the Designated Flyer tonight.
Why would an Uber driver be in a bar drinking? Uber might ask me to rate my driver.
Wouldn’t rock bands and stand-up comedians have a bright future as consultants to the gig economy? That’s the way they’ve been doing business all along.
I got screwed by Uber last Thanksgiving. They knew how to get to where I wanted to go because I was going to visit my mom, but they couldn’t figure out how to find it when they needed to pick me up.
The only reason business hasn’t moved 100% to gig style is that there ARE jobs where training and aptitude matter.
The gig economy? Victorian factory owners just called it the economy …
Grandma better stay indoors, and hope they don’t crash through the roof.
As an underemployed academic whose area is late antiquity I read Non Sequitur to keep me updated in 21st century argot. And, damn!, adjunct work at 17 colleges and universities (so they didn’t have to pay decent wages or provide benefits) means I’ve been part of the gig economy without even having a name for being treated badly.
I’m always amazed at what little tidbits of knowledge I can receive by reading GoComics and the comments they inspire. The bits of knowledge removes the feeling that it’s a total waste of time. ;-)
I must be a little off, but I look forward to retiring and getting a gig at McDonalds or Waffle House to stay busy.
One night of working the chimneys has to pay for the workshop time and labor costs. Santa needs a tax break.
I hear that Santa’s are in big demand as many Santa’s are unwilling to let children, many too young for vaccination, to sit on their laps. I’d say a Santa with his own reindeer would be a real find.
I started out life doing a variety of jobs from paper routes to mowing grass. I became an actor and later worked as a freelance writer and/or production coordinator in film, television, and advertising. In my late thirties, I went into a series of managerial and trouble-shooting positions in the hospitality industry – the longest was with one corporation for over eight years. In my early fifties, I went to work as a consultant for the cruise and travel industry and freelanced for a large public relations/marketing firm part-time until I completely retired.
My point is that unknowingly, I have always been part of the gig economy. The money was always very good, the benefits – if there were any – were o.k. but there was very little provision for retirement.
Uber Claus. When it absolutely, positively must be there December 25th.
Donner and Blitzen must be operating independently.
I never have and never, ever will use that company for my travel needs!!!
I even refuse to call it by its name!
Hey, there are only 6 reindeer. Oh, Donner is getting Blitzed, and Rudolph is in the Red Light District.
Two reindeer are using the facilities.
Now we know why Rudolph has such a RED Nose.
It’s all the Scotch.
are real, honest to goodness, licensed taxis still in existence?
