    Why we must all longhaul.

    Here is an item from the Minnesota Boards. As many of you are aware, Gryft now "value(s) the time" of its drivers in Phoenix, Las Vegas and Minneapolis/St. Paul. To demonstrate just how much value Gryft puts on its drivers' time, it has implemented drastic pay cuts-ER-uh "New Rates" in the...

    ExpressPool goes wrong

    Usually I was the one taking the Ride of Shame, so I just hailed a cab (or called one, if it were the suburbs). On the rare occasions when she was doing the Ride of Shame, I always called a cab and gave her cab money. There was no such thing as Uber, back then. These days, the proper thing to...

    Lyft bringing the new rate card to Phoenix.

    I am assuming that you received substantially more for a comparable XL ride before the rates that "value your time"..

    There are some menu items at Outback that give me the runs. They usually kick in right about the time for the check. I still order them, though. It must be something in the spices or the meat tenderiser that they use there.

    Many of those scenes come from Russia. When the Soviet Empire still stood, the word was that the drivers in Leningrad were the worst in Europe. I do not k now if the drivers in St. Petersburg are still the worst in Europe, but they must still have some pretty bad drivers in Russia if that much...

    Here's A Story To Relate To Any Pax That Declines To Buckle Up.

    According to this, Tennessee has a primary law that covers front seat passengers, only. https://www.ghsa.org/state-laws/issues/Seat-Belts WikiPedia makes the same statements, but, I use the Wiki as a guide, only. I try to get independent confirmation of anything that I see there. According...

    Day 1 New Lyft rates Phoenix

    They do, but here is the rub: If you go three miles to fetch someone who is going three miles, you are getting about the same as you were under the last rates. If you go one mile to take someone ten miles, you are losing money on those extra nine miles. It does not benefit you to accept a...

    Day 1 New Lyft rates Phoenix

    Las Vegas got both the pay cut to the drivers and increase to the customers. I have yet to see any sample trip comparisons there, though. I have seen two on the Phoenix Boards. Those two bear out my theories.
