Here Are Some Of The Wildest Side Hustles You Told Us You Did For Some Extra Cash

So many people thrive with having their own side hustles. It is a part of the economy that consists of more and more young people looking to make some extra cash while also juggling a fulltime job. For some, the side hustle is a passion project that you want to get off the ground to quit your job. For others, it is a way to bridge the gap between their income and what they need with healthcare and other responsibilities.

Side hustles are a part of life for so many so we wanted to know what you all did for some side cash.

We asked you to tell us on social media what some of the wildest side hustles you have done and you did not hold back. Tbh, some of these even gave us ideas on ways to make some extra cash on the side during and after this pandemic. Here are some of the best side hustles you shared.

Being a contestant on “12 Córazones.”

Instagram user @an_igeee said she was on the show about 8 years ago and we have a lot of questions. Like, can you send us a clip so we can see you in all your glory? Did you find love? How did you end up being cast in the show?

Some of y’all started really young with your side hustles and good for you.

Honestly, we all collected Pokémon cards at one time or another. It was the few smart kids that knew how to collect so many that they could duplicate their best cards and sell them like @br1ana21. If you are really smart, you can turn it into an adult side hustle now that they might have a little more value.

You can always make some extra cash if you have a camera.

@maxwellhallel told us that he made some extra cash helping a catalog. This side hustler was taking photos of paper towels and toilet paper. The photographer probably never imagined how valuable and important those paper products would be in the future.

Some side hustles are not for the faint of heart.

Death is such a part of life that there is an industry built up to handle everything death. That is why @_whiskeynpeonies_ managed to build up their own side hustle of transporting bodies for funeral homes. If you like driving and don’t mind being around death, this might be a good choice for you.

Sometimes your side hustle is just an extension of your full-time job.

When push comes to shove, there are ways to turn your main grind into a side hustle as well. Since the world became infected with COVID-19, a lot of people have lost their jobs and @anacepedab is no different. She is a school teacher in the morning, a university student in the afternoon and, because of her parents’ sudden unemployment, she has picked up some extra work as a tutor.

If you have the stomach for it, you can always handle the jobs no one wants.

@karimoli did what parents don’t want to do: remove piojitos. Lice are just a part of growing up. Children do not understand social distancing or personal space so when one kid gets lice, all of them do. It seems like a pretty solid side hustle if you live near an elementary school or daycare. Who else would hire someone to remove their child’s lice?

Uber Driver Records Passenger Coughing On, Assaulting and Pepper-Spraying Him When He Asks Her to Wear a Mask

There’s a reason so many Americans are critical of the growing gig economy. Unlike traditional jobs, which are often protected by unions and/or human resource departments, gig workers do not have the same security. Because of this, gig workers are often treated unfairly and, in some cases, put in dangerous situations.

Take, for instance, ride-share drivers. People who drive vehicles for ride-share apps like Uber and Lyft often complain of low pay and disrespectful customers. And sometimes, those disrespectful customers turn violent.

On Sunday, a San Francisco Uber driver was assaulted and attacked in his car by a young female passenger (Arna Kimiai) . The woman told the Uber drive she had COVID, coughed in his face, ripped off his mask, and snatched his phone.

The entire assault was caught on the driver’s dashcam footage. The ordeal started when the driver, Subhakar Khadka, asked the mask-less female passenger and her two friends to put on masks. Khadka then pulled into a nearby gas station so the woman could buy one.

Khadka, who is of South-Asian descent, said that by this time, the woman and her two friends were already enraged and calling him racist anti-Asian slurs. Khadka told the women to leave his vehicle, and that is when the assault began.

The woman screamed “f–k the masks!” and started loudly coughing in the car, telling Khadka that she is infected with coronavirus. Khadka looks visibly frustrated but still remains calm before the woman reaches over and grabs his phone from the dashboard. Khadka, shocked, tells the woman not to touch his property.

In response, the woman rips off his mask and appears to start hitting him while threatening to beat him up.

The woman continues to scream at him while Khadka tells her and her friends to get out of his vehicle. The three women simply scream obscenities at him.

Khadka told local news station CBS SF that after the women exited the vehicle, they pepper-sprayed him through his car window.

“She pepper-sprayed inside my car, from the passenger window that was open a little bit, that was the only window open in my car,” he said.

Uber caught wind of the viral video and immediately banned the woman from their service.

The woman, who many outlets have identified as Arna Kimiai, took to Instagram to defend her actions and refused to apologize.

At first, Kimiai, whose Instagram handle is @keepinupwforeign, was unremorseful about her behavior. In an Instagram live video, she said she attacked Khadka because he was about to leave them “in the middle of buttf–k nowhere in the hood.”

“He lucky as hell I ain’t have nothing on me on, mamas,” she added. “Cause if we would’ve played with me, bruh, it would’ve been a whole different story.”

Kimiai also claimed that she would only take Lyft from now on. Lyft, however, was notified of Kimiai’s plans and promptly banned her from their service as well.

“Although this incident did not involve the Lyft platform,” they tweeted out, “the unacceptable treatment of the driver in this video compelled us to permanently remove the rider from the Lyft community.”

Looks like Arna Kimiai will be walking from now on.

President Trump Attempted To Register His Trademark In Cuba In 2008 To Open Hotels And More

New reports show that President Donald Trump tried to register his trademark in Cuba in 2008. The revelation shows another contradiction from President Trump who promised not to do business in Cuba until the island was a free democracy. The news comes just one week into Hispanic Heritage Month and has left some on social media questioning President Trump’s commitment to Cuban-Americans.

A new Miami Herald story is shining a light on Trump’s attempted business dealings in Cuba.

The story highlights President Trump’s hypocrisy and frequent contradictions throughout his life. The president’s attempted business dealings in Cuba came after he told the Cuban American National Foundation that he would not. During a 1999 speech, President Trump promised that he would not do business in Cuba until the island and the people were free.

For some, the revelation comes as a reminder of President Trump’s record with the Latino community. Latinos have been a constant target for Trump’s attacks since he called Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals when announcing his candidacy in 2015.

The news has angered Latinos who see the gesture as a sign of betrayal.

“I’ve had a lot of offers and, sadly, it’s all be very recently, to go into Cuba on deals. Business deals, real estate, and other deals,” Trump said at the 1999 speech in front of the Cuban American National Foundation. “I’ve rejected them on the basis that I will go when Cuba is free.”

Ana Navarro-Cárdenas, Republican political pundit and outspoken Trump critic, did not hold back.

Navarro-Cárdenas is one Republican who has long stood up against President Trump. Her tweets highlighted the fact that President Trump didn’t try to do business in Cuba just once. There are several instances that show that the president tried to make business happen in Cuba.

“Putting money and investing money in Cuba right now doesn’t go to the people of Cuba,” Trump told the audience in 1999. “It goes into the pockets of Fidel Castro.”

People are not completely shocked by the news.

The Trump administration has also been tied to the Cuban government. Earlier this year, news surfaced that Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager, met with “Castro’s son” in Cuba. The meeting happened in 2017 just days before the inauguration. Emails show Manafort trying to relay information from “Castro’s son” to Kathleen T. McFarland, who would go on to be the Deputy National Security Advisor for the Trump administration.
