    Karen, why not use the time to improve yourself, like excercise, read a book, study ( if you're in school ) etc?.
    I work the airport, there's a 20 minute waiting time for most trips, just about, though duing the afternoon, it's about an hour. I just listen to radio, read magazines, call friends, go for a walk and stretch my legs, that sort of thing. I'm incredibly lazy so sitting around doing nothing comes very easy to me :)

    McDonalds starting pay is $10hr with benifits, paid time off, vacations, and help with college tuition. Uber, none of that, so quit and get a real job. Uber is a joke!

    If it is before 7 p.m. go to the carwash they have 8 locations in my city for my $19.95 monthly unlimited fee. Get fuel. Get a drink.
    Going to bathroom or getting food always produces an instant ping.
    Go shopping for car cleaning materials. Go to A.T.M. and make deposit if I got a few tips.only carry $20.00 in change to satisfy heroine junkies if they sneak up on me. They get angry and shoot or cut if you have nothing. Always carry enough cash that they will run off to get a bump, but not more.

    I don't need benefits, don't need help with college tuituion. Even if I was only averaging $10/hr with Uber...I would much rather make that $10.00/hr working when I wanted in the comfort of my own car as opposed to McDonalds.
    Again, everybody's area and situation is different. There is no way to paint a wide brush on why Uber does or doesn't work. For my particular situation, it does. If I had different scheduling availability, lived in a different area, needed benefits, etc. etc. then maybe Uber would not be the prudent choice.

    When I have down time I sometimes listen to the radio and call in on contest they offer. For example from 9 am, 11 am ,1 pm and 3 pm you have a chance to win $1000. I also happen to live next to a park that had two stock fishing ponds. I usually park at the ponds and fish while waiting for a request. I guess I am very lucky to be able to fish as I work. Another item I do is hang at the horse race track nearby betting on a couple of races until I am needed. To come to think of it I am living the dream. Retired and making a few bucks on the side while enjoying my interest. For the downside of driving for Uber I sure have some good upside. Would not to be able to do this working in a office job.
