Do you rely on Uber to survive?
Nope. Uber is a stress reliever believe it or not.
You got to pray just to make it these days!
It's a stress reliever and it also pays for my on line dates.
Pretty much the same, though Uber is paying my car payments and then some.
Crap; if those were my only bills, I COULD survive with just Uber.
As it is; I had to purchase a second house which wasn't too bad but, I severely underestimated the cost of repairs that were needed so I had to take out a HELOC. That pushed me into an uncomfortable zone. Driving Uber allows me to make my HELOC payment plus put some money back into my savings account.
Uber is a time filler for me. Better to make money on my days off than spend money.
I'm willing to bet that the majority of drivers out there (and here on UP.net) are doing this as a secondary income, I want to live comfortably and build up savings so I endure the Uber/Lyft life and the pax that come with it. No shame in saying that its a bit of a necessity.
However, I am very skeptical when people say they do this for "fun" or a "stress reliever". They must be picking up very different clients than I am or don't mind bending over backwards for base fares.
