    Let’s hear it for Uber 🎉

    My response to them once, after doing a long-ride with surge, and finding that they had taken over 40% also, was, "At what point did you physically get behind the wheel of my car --- the only person, besides my mechanic and car wash, was my girlfriend, to move it out of the driveway --- to...

    Passenger urinated in my car and didn’t tell me

    Passenger urinated in my car and didn’t tell me

    Man, I'm so sorry, brother. That's messed-up, cleaning you out of your entire bowl of Starbursts! Inconsiderate louts!

    Anyone driving today ?

    After New Year's, it's dead as a door nail, until perhaps Valentine's Day weekend. It picks up again in March, with all the local St. Paddy's Day celebrations and warmer weather

    Aspergers Driver

    As someone who's worked in the field providing services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (over 15 years, plus a BA in Psychology), @Mkang14 is right on-target. Dude, don't be insensitive and dismissive (and you're obviously not the only one coming off as...

    Light em up

    A powerful flashlight should do the trick. Unfortunately, however, too many pax don't leave on a front light, they don't place their house number in a conspicuous place, or it's obstructed, if present at all. Then they get in a huff, informing me that I'd driven past them (especially when...

    Need honest opinions

    My half-brother has been in trouble with the law since a teen, too. He's now in his early-30s, exhausted all of Dad's savings and stock investments on legal fees and fines, plenty of jail time, and, although he's been out for less than a year (I think; I've cut ties but get updates through my...

    New Years Eve

    Honestly, but for the holidays, I think it's the opposite 1577925858 Without the Quest promotion, there was no way I would have stayed out ... or even gone out at all.

    New Years Eve

    Patchogue at 2 AM was surging at $16; I grabbed myself a few. My full-time job was only open from 9 AM-noon, but we were paid for a full-day. I then Ubered from 12:30 until 6 PM (was crap), went home, ate dinner while watching the map, headed back out a little after 8. I'd planned on staying out...

    Please Help, Where Can I rent Car for Uber and Lyft?

    Did you factor-in insurance? Gas? Plus, it's not $214 flat; there are taxes+fees, etc.

    Pick up fee for NYE?

    With no more surge multipliers, no one knows what it's going to be like, but I don't think that it'll be as profitable as NYEs past
