There was a parade and festival in downtown Denver last week and I was stuck working at the marijuana dispensary. It was really a pain, because there were so many events going on at the same time. Traffic was moving in lots of different directions and the interstate was backed up. I left the Denver marijuana dispensary around noon with the first of my deliveries. I headed east of Denver with the first order and I saw the traffic standing still going in the opposite direction. I took a different route home, but it didn’t help. When I saw traffic backed up on the interstate already, I knew it was going to be a very long day. Traffic never got better and I spent most of my night sitting in one place. I barely finished with two sets of deliveries and I usually end up with a fourth set on the weekends. I only earned half of the regular amount in tips that I usually make on a weekend night. Traffic was horrendous and it slowed down everything, including all of the marijuana deliveries. By the end of my shift, I was tired, sleepy, and exhausted. I didn’t have a wad of money in my pocket to show for my aches and pains and that made me even more upset at the end of the night. The next time there is going to be a festival, I’m going to request that day off work. I’d rather stay home than have to deal with marijuana deliveries in Denver in that kind of crazy traffic again.
