Several months ago I decided to go on vacation with a few of my friends in order to get away from my daily life for a few days. While on vacation I got drunk several times and ended up spending more money on my credit card than I could afford. At the time I didn't realize how much I had spent, but once I got home from my vacation I hopped on my computer and pulled up my statement. To say I was in shock was putting it mildly. I had managed to rack up several thousand dollars worth of debt on my card. I didn't know what the hell I was going to do or how I was going to pay this. I also had to make sure that my husband didn't find out about any of this or it would cause some major stress on our marriage. Luckily I got my credit card statements via e-mail so he wouldn't be able to see them unless he hacked into my account. Either way I had to come up with a way to pay for all of this because my teacher’s assistant job didn't pay enough to cover all of the charges. I pondered all my options for a few days before coming to the resolution that I needed to find a part-time job to make a little extra money. I wasn't sure how I would explain this to my husband and needed to come up with an idea. After thinking about it for a bit I decided to tell my husband that I was going to get a part-time job to make some extra spending money for myself. He seemed okay with the idea and was happy that he would have to foot me any extra spending money. Once I got the idea past him, I began my search for a part-time job.

I looked around in the papers and online for several days and couldn't find anything that I qualified for. I was starting to get disappointed thinking that I wouldn't be able to find anything when I stumbled across an ad looking for drivers. It was an ad for a local car service company and they were looking for drivers to fill in on a full-time and part-time basis. There weren't many qualifications and after pondering the idea I decided to give the company a call. I talked to a representative of the company and made an appointment to go in for an interview a few days later. I told my husband about it and he was happy for me and wished me luck. A few days later I went in for my interview and after spending an hour at the place I was hired on the spot. I was shocked and surprised at the same time because I really never expected to get the job. I was instructed about what I was to do what was required of me and started the following Saturday.

I started off small, working a few hours each day driving people back and forth to different locations. It was pretty simple, I drove people to their destinations and got paid for it, including tips. It wasn't a terrible job and I didn't have to work extremely hard. Little by little I managed to work my way up over the course of a few months and before I knew it they began to send me on bigger jobs. I began working events such as weddings and parties. The bigger the jobs, the bigger the tips I would make and it definitely helped. I learned to never turn down a job and to always be patient with the customers and it usually worked out in my favor with a nice tip.

About a month and a half ago my boss put me on a big-money job for a Saturday night. I asked him what it was and he went over it with me. A group of guys had rented our party bus for their bachelor party. The problem was that they had rented it from 6 PM on Saturday afternoon until 6 AM Sunday morning. That would put me on a full 12-hour shift. I wasn't crazy about it but knew that I would get a nice payday so I accepted the job. I was basically going to drive these guys around to wherever they wanted to go over the course of the 12 hours. I wasn't crazy about driving a bunch of rowdy drunk guys around for the night, but at the same time I knew that I had to make this money.

Saturday night came around and I got myself ready for the long night ahead of me. I put on my work clothes and headed to the office to get ready. My boss went over everything with me and told me to just be patient with the guys as the night went on. He showed me the party bus and explained everything to me and I was soon on my way. I headed to the address where I was supposed to pick the guys up. I arrived about an hour later and as I pulled up I noticed about five or six guys coming out of the house. I hopped out of the bus and greeted the guys. They were all probably in their early 30s and reasonably good-looking guys. They were surprised to see a woman driving the party bus. Once I went over the rules with them, they hopped on board and we were soon on our way. The first stop was going to be at a local bar. They instructed me where to go and I was on my way. We arrived at the bar a short time later and the guys all headed inside while I stayed on board the bus and waited for them. They spent a good hour in the bar before returning to the bus. Once everybody was on board they instructed me to their next stop. We spent the next couple of hours doing some barhopping. I drove them to a couple different bars and while I waited on the bus they went inside and got loaded. As we drove from bar to bar most of the guys sat towards the back of the bus while the groom's best man rode up front beside me and chatted it up with me while giving the directions of where to go.

After hitting several bars, they directed me to one of the local strip joints. The best man directed me on where to go and we were on our way. We arrived a short time later and the guys began getting off the bus and headed into the strip club. The best man turned around and invited me to come in with them so that I wouldn't have to wait on the bus but I quickly declined his offer and thanked him for it. He shrugged his shoulders and joined his friends in the club while I headed back onto the bus to wait for them. Time passed slowly and after almost 2 hours the guys emerged and boarded the bus once again. They were all pretty drunk but wanted to continue going
