Would you do this? Work related

I am in charge of three stores. Two are pretty close and I don't mind. One is about 45 miles from my home and it takes an hour or so to get there. It's back road traveling up a two lane highway through the hills. No other good way to do it. The problem is, I only get paid for mileage after 35 miles and drive time after 45 minutes. Therefore, I only get about 7 miles paid for and only about 5-10 minutes of drive time. They want me to do the store two times a week. The amount of work is okay, I will make about $60.00. What about the time it takes to get there though? Am I wasting my money?

  • Looks like you may spend more in gas and time than you'll make.
