    I am afraid to push the button

    I drove all day today and had a good day and I think I get more anxious about pushing the button because I'm anticipating having a bad time and not making any money more than anything. I'm very talkative with the pax and the social anxiety goes away very quickly and if I'm getting pings and...

    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.

    Its dead out here

    I just find it discouraging that just about anywhere I go in DFW....I can check and see that at least 8 ants are in the vicinity. To me, it does seem that there are more ants on the road than just a few months ago. I hope bizness picks back up soon. I do understand that strategy plays a big...
