In 1947, when NYC bus driver and Bronx native William Cimillo, 38 years old, got in his bus and just kept on driving... all the way to Florida.


Cimillo became a national hero, appearing on TV and radio to tell his story once he was back in the city, where he was allowed to keep his job.
Cimillo told Emerson, "I was on the job for about 20 years and I really got tired of it all, up and down every day, the same people, the same stops, nickels, dimes, transfers... Well I thought I'd try something different, a new route... I come out of my garage and instead of making a right turn, I made a left turn. So I made this left turn and went west towards George Washington Bridge. It was a beautiful morning, sun was shining. I stopped for breakfast, and decided to take a little ride... before I knew it I was right in front of the White House."

He needs a day, too

Ha! And here my weekend goal is ''anything at all''!.......that I can actually do. It's getting so that it's not a matter of catching work, it's a matter of being able to do it. I had to return a ten dollar HIT with a giant bonus the other day 'cause it was impossible to do it in the time allotted unless you ran down the page popping bubbles and didn't look at anything else on the page--that is, scam the requester. (which I'm convinced some people did)

How much I make depends on how early I start turking, and how much I can make before I start running my weekend errands. I don't grind on the weekend, and I'm pickier about what I work on. I only turk a few hours here and there if I'm around the house. If I catch a few decent hits during that time then I can hit my goal, but that doesn't happen often, especially now during the summer.

Foxtrot finally woke up....no problem making my goal now :cool:

I snarked before about my $2.54 weekend, but really, if I make $5-$10 each weekend day, I'm happy. Not gonna stress about. Weekdays I shoot for low $30, high $50. Summers it is more like $30.
Also working more on my Medium writing, finishing my next book, and finishing my dissertation....ugh. I just need to get thru it to get my PhD -everything else is done.
