I have a problem at work, as in a task that appears impossible. That’s the kind of stuff that I do. Anyway, I’ve been hanging my head against this for months. Like, I’ve driven home in serious despair many nights.
So today, after having the same conversation with the smartest people I know, I flippantly said, “shit dawg, why don’t I fivvr this or turk it?”. I’d never used either, but it made me feel smart to say.
Then I said to myself, fuckit, lets try. It took me two hours to figure out how to document my tasks and create what they call a HIT. An hour and a half later, my 2.5 month long problem was solved. And it cost me $68.
So… Was that a fluke? Should we be embracing this? (I.e. gig economy) Am I a bad person for only pricing the work at basically $19/hour? How am I gonna get scammed?
My head is reeling. Should a guy that makes a decent wage farm out his work… So he can go home at a reasonable hour?
