I want to work as a delivery courier, but I'm scared because my dad thinks it's "dishonest"?

I'm scared to work at Pacific courier, because my dad thinks they're "tricksy". I get paid $500 a week, doing 159 miles a day/5 days a week. My car runs on 25 mpg. After taxes and gas, I think I get about $317 which is still better than minimum wage, but My dad thinks I will get in an accident or the "maintenance" will be too high, or maybe the gas is too expensive. I want to try working here, and I can always quit, but without his approval, I feel lonely. Has anyone worked at a courier job and tell me if it's an okay job or not? When I went to training, it seemed "chill". You just drive, pick up papers, get signatures, listen music if you want I guess, but I guess I'm worried now, because my dad is. My car is insured Also how did you get 7.5/h, I work 38.5 hrs. They pay me .50 cents x 38.5 temporarily for mileage since its high lately

Using your own car is a liability. Do you have commercial insurance for it. If not, they can deny claims. They should be paying you mileage and providing liability insurance. Doing this is risky. For all that you get about $7.50 an hour.
