    Uber destinations - the @@@@@ is back.

    Woooop! This was the main thing that they did that annoyed me. Truly glad this is back so I can get home at the end of a shift without a billion dead miles. The Lyft dest filter is trash imo.

    If Lyft can’t keep its drivers as independent contractors, it may never be profitable

    You would think that since we don't get any health coverage or other benefits that a real employee would get that these guys would at least hook us up with $1 per mile but alas....

    Different Method of Cherry Picking!

    Rider upfront price hack

    Sorry I am getting this so slowly there Mista T. OK.... so you type in your destination and a friendly Uber driver picks you up within a few minutes. Next, while you are chilling in the backseat you go ahead and change your dest to a place that is at least a mile away from the original dest...

    I am afraid to push the button

    Hope everyone is having a pleasant Sunday..... I have no commitments or obligations today and it would be a perfect day to go out and drive for 10 hours and make some money but some days my anxiety level is high and I just can't seem to push the button to take that first ride. Just wondering if...

    How do I use the IRS standard deduction?

    I'm just worried that I will be audited because it took me soooo many miles to make some money that I will show a teeny profit on several thousands in earnings.
