    Hey, shaving that beard really DID help.

    Ever heard of Retin-A? :r&r:

    Not so much something I learned today or even yesterday, but I started to wonder why I've never seen a female deliver a takeaway.

    Do females work on takeaway deliveries?

    I've never seen one, but yes they do.

    I know a student nurse who works part-time delivering for Domino's Pizza. The money she makes keeps her car running and she does fairly well by getting lots of tips.

    I'm guessing they tend to hire a lot more male drivers because there is a fear that female drivers might get assaulted/robbed/attacked, given the vulnerable position that delivery drivers are often in. As someone who has never had food delivered to my house, I'm not an expert on such things....but I do know that the local news seems to jump on stories like this.

    That makes a lot of sense and I did wonder if that may be the case. We do have female taxi drivers, so I kinda threw my reasoning out of the window, thinking these could also find themselves in a vulnerable situation.
