That is one I have considered, though I have talked to a few of those guys, they work mostly for tips. Which can be great if you have good tippers, but a bad tipper can end up costing you gas money.
Still on the table though as an option, as my interactions with others would be somewhat limited (limited to single contact at pickup and single contact at destination; if I’m wearing a mask for both brief interactions, I’m assuming I’ll be at low risk overall).
The warehouse thing though is just no bueno. I worked in warehouses for 15 years. Hundreds of people in close quarters, working hard, breathing heavy, in a massive enclosed building with poor ventilation… then all crowding into a small break room at the same time. Any time one person in my department got a slight case of the sniffles, a week later everybody had caught it.
Don’t believe the commercials. Those shipping and receiving jobs are not safe. And don’t buy into the “flexible hours” thing either. What they mean by “flexible hours” is “hey, remember how you signed up to work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week? Well, we’re pretty busy right now, so we’re going to ‘flex’ your hours to 12 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
“You will never see your family ever again, but just think of the extra overtime you’ll be earning! Don’t even bother going home. By the time you get there, have dinner, take a shower, go to bed, you’ll have to turn around and wake up and come back in again. We’ve set up cots in the break room, or you can sleep in your car in the parking lot.”
And of course you might as well uninstall E&P from your phone, because you won’t have any time for that sort of nonsense. You are now a cog in the machine, it is now your full time 24/7 job to ensure that other people get stuff delivered to them so that they can enjoy a normal life while you work your body to death inside a florescent lit windowless concrete structure wondering if you’ll ever see natural light again.
