Pizza delivery driver fifth of 10-most dangerous jobs

According to the BLS, 334 delivery drivers (transporting food and goods) lost their lives from 2015 to 2019. While most fatalities resulted from transportation accidents, almost 17 percent occurred due to intentional injuries in an assault, robbery, or homicide.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), a pizza delivery driver is at a higher risk of injury and death than a construction worker or police officer. BLS statistics reported of the 5,553 total workplace fatalities that occurred throughout the country, delivery drivers made up 1,005 of them.

Opportunistic crimes might include snatching a few packages or robbing a delivery worker on their way back to a vehicle. Theft crimes are only the beginning of the risk that drivers face. There have been reported assaults and even homicides involving delivery drivers in recent years.Sep 14, 2023

Have any horror stories?


When I was 17 I applied for a very good civil service career scheme and got post all of the intelligence tests and initial interview. The next stage was an interview day exactly like this and I said fuck it and withdrew my application. I still wonder what would have happened had I went through with it.


Once upon a time in a bustling city, there was a mysterious corporation known for its eccentric hiring practices. Rumors whispered through the streets, speaking of a place where job interviews were not what they seemed – a place known only as "The Interview Chamber."

Desperation led a young professional named Alex to apply for a position at this enigmatic company. After a grueling application process, Alex received an invitation for an interview at The Interview Chamber. The address led to an obscure building, overshadowed by the towering skyscrapers of the city.

Upon entering the building, Alex was greeted by an eerie silence. The receptionist's smile seemed forced as they handed over a nondescript keycard and gestured towards the elevator. The higher the elevator ascended, the more ominous the atmosphere became.

The Interview Chamber awaited on the top floor, a dimly lit room with a single chair positioned across from a massive, antique mirror. As Alex settled into the chair, the interviewer, Mr. Blackwood, emerged from the shadows.

Mr. Blackwood's questions were bizarre, delving into personal fears, childhood memories, and the darkest corners of the mind. The mirror seemed to shimmer with an otherworldly glow as if absorbing Alex's responses.

As the interview progressed, strange occurrences unfolded. Shadows danced across the walls, and whispers echoed through the chamber. Alex's reflection in the mirror appeared distorted, revealing a nightmarish version of themselves.

Suddenly, the room plunged into darkness. The only source of light was the haunting glow of the mirror. Mr. Blackwood's voice, now cold and distant, spoke cryptic words that seemed to pierce through the very soul.

nursing home during covid


My grandparents owned a drug store. They had employees.
They made little money because they had to buy their product from middlemen who had a de facto monopoly on this activity.
They lived in an uninsulated home without toilets.
They finished on the street when the marts began to open.

Somehow, I find difficult to name them capitalists or bourgeois on anything else than a theoretical level.


I heard those places leave their employees with PTSD and all kinds of fucked up psychological problems


your false consciousness retards you from understanding the truth

Found this scathing but informative critique of how working in the military really works. It covers many subjects but I think this one about Special Forces is particularly interesting.
>continued: Did you ever notice when they talk about SOCOM being created, they always say "as a response to what happened in Operation Eagle Claw"? Notice their words very carefully. They never say "to prevent 'disasters' or 'failures'" like Eagle Claw. No. Always "in response to". What they mean is SOCOM wasn't created "to make the various units communicate and work with each other" or some shit that people say. No, it was restructured so they can escape scrutiny WHEN they fuck up. It was created to save all these military bureaucrats careers, so their fuck ups NEVER see scrutiny. Not only to the public, but to congress and even the pentagon who are supposed to hold them accountable. So now when they fuck up, they can paper over everything with "classified" LOL. I bet the causality rates in Tier 1 operations routinely exceed 50%. And for what? The guys are sent on pointless missions chasing mundane ragheads so the higher brass can make a huge profit and great career prospects. So when these "operators" always brag about the "sacrifices" they made, remind them that their "sacrifices" were for some hidden military brass's CAREERS, not their "country", etc. LOL

I don't know what this is really about but there's probably bad organizational design if the first priority is blame-evasion


The bradley worked great despite all the laughs of pentagon wars.

Creating a new thing which solves the problem is good, particularly when you fucked up trying to do something new.

The M113 guy is retarded, and if his ideas were followed, you wouldn't see many of the great, effective products which make the NATO military the best in the world.

I love the hilarious image of operators taking 50% casualties regularly, but they're not actually used to win wars, just posturing, so they don't see enough engagement to take real casualties like you'd see in something like the civil war.


>The bradley worked great
In the gulfwar 1990-91 "Desert Storm", sure, it destroyed loads of ancient badly maintained Iraqi tanks, that still had hand-cranked turrets. Out of the 2k bradleys only a handful got destroyed.
But in the recent Ukraine war, not so much, bradleys got chewed up.

>the great, effective products which make the NATO military the best in the world.

You sound like a weapons porky shill.


Soldiers, at least in the west are mercenaries who fight for corporations and I am tired to pretend otherwise.
In Russia it's the same but for oligarchs.

Are police proles?


financed from state revenue so no. There might be an argument for private security


false conscious class traitors


>are police prole?
Only if prole is a term that lacks any relevance





The paper pusher administrators are proles, so it is not a good indicator.

Customer should shut the fuck up.

Late night is when fast food stores are closing up for he night or in the middle of cleaning.

Customers need to stop acting like service workers are their secondary butler-parents.

What are some good ways to get out of work but still get paid?

Anyone else find it ridiculous that jobs are able to drug test you for what you are doing outside of work? If I want to smoke weed or shoot heroin outside of work I don't see why I shouldn't be able to do it.

If I'm drunk or high on the job that's one thing but I don't think people should be allowed to be fired for what they do outside of work. Especially, yeah, when alcohol (arguably one of the most destructive Drugs ever) is legal and B: When it's 2022 and pretty much everyone and granny is stoned out of their mind.

What's the deal with this? Why are people willing to literally let their employers anal rape them?

Why would I support making capitalist state's stronger? Porkies love bragging about "muh civil rights" they wear it like a badge so they look better, all about appearances, the more totalitarian and harsh a capitalist country is the faster bosses lose control of the workers.


Isn't it a bit of a stretch to say it will make them "stronger" they aren't an invading military force or something


Is 420chan really dead?


Yes. Rip to a real one.


Apply this to schools about punishing students for incidets that happen outisde of school.

>Omg, don't tell me to learn a useful skill. I should get paid for just existing!
Millennials and gen z were a mistake


And he has already been doing the trade for the past ten-plus years, most of which he spent doing the miserable bitch work for a pittance.
>Learning a trade allows you to potentially become self employed
Fucking lel. The petit-bourgeoisie is dying out and yet bootstrappers constantly put forward the claim that you can join them with just a little (read "a decade or two") of poorly paid and miserable hard work.
Construction is good, except when it's not. It's a boom-and-bust business, and it's a young man's game.


90% of coding under capitalism is paper pushing bullshit


you seem to be lost.

How do young people even move out of their parents now? I'm nearly 18 years old with zero plans to go to college and I don't have my driver's license. I live in California so rent will cost an arm and a leg. My dad bought a house in this hellhole and he's expecting me to work and help him pay the mortgage if I want to live to live here. I don't want to live in this hot as fuck place, if you know California as it is now it's getting hotter every year and the fires get worse and worse. What I really want is a place to start fresh in another state, but rent is going to be costly as fuck in every city in this country.

You probably don't leave your suburb or collective house in a gentrifying neighborhood, and your 'concern for worldly affairs' is a fake and ghey overcompensation to soothe your moral anxiety.


you probably live in suburbs anyway and your "toughness" is just overcomoemsation for lack of mutual concern.

Alot of people like you I emcounter in the suburbs or "ghettos".

Yall dont care because you dont have to live in it.


And you do, white boi?


Actually, upon second reading, your comment was nonsensical. Perhaps you aren't white, or maybe are from the Balkans or st


tbh this is the black ad white petulance logic alot of adults have concerning kids.

They think kids dont deserve mutual respect nor autonomy.

They complain aboutkids "leecging off their psrents" (aka having fun without having to work).
But they forget that kids dont have any legal rights. They cannot buy anything for themselves or negotiate contracts for themselves.

They are not allowed to go anywhere by themselves except school.

Imo, childhood is incarceration.

By right, adulthood begins at ouberty but our dumbass Victorian forefathers thought that childhood needs to last as long as your youth.
