    2010 Toyota vans on surplus, currently cheap

    Too much for me right now. I'm living in a homeless shelter. But at least I just got approved for Social Security Disability Insurance--so I will soon have an income again.

    Need Help With Rematch

    Yes. I've received rematches (for the AP) after dropping pax off there

    Street nuts really have it out for us lately

    KOMO missed many details. See my report, "Crazed man..."

    $40+ per hour in Seattle possible?

    Except for his loathing to pay (any) taxes--which is what got him arrested years back. I don't think he's earned enough yet to pay off the back taxes, interest & fine yet...

    Crazed man jumps/crashes thru rear windshield right after pax enters car

    The poor driver lives in Everett and has no way to get home. 1564543653 Luckily, my building's security video proves the incident is not the driver’s fault.

    Crazed man jumps/crashes thru rear windshield right after pax enters car

    This happened on my DTS street just now. The FUber driver's pax had just entered the vehicle when, out of nowhere, a shirtless white male ran screaming at the back of the car. The man stopped a few feet short of the car, planted himself briefly as if on a diving board before jumping. Having...

    Low Rated PAX

    I specialize in AP runs (on X), identifying them in the afternoon via +45min. notices in my DF. My firm rule is to never, ever accept requests from pax rated lower than 4.7. Even if I get offered a +45min. ride, I will not accept anyone below 4.7. The key, as Dex constantly advises, is to never...

    This is a Cold Roast

    Wow--I wish I could get unicorns like those!

    $40+ per hour in Seattle possible?

    Sounds exactly like something said to Joe Mannix each episode by his secretary, Peggy.

    $40+ per hour in Seattle possible?

    Yes, $40/hr. is easily attainable--but not for an entire shift. I often make $50 (including tip) longhauling on just a single mid-afternoon AP trip at X rates w/o surge. I also can make about $100 in 2-3 hours in the morning doing back to back AP runs (deadheading back to my fishing holes)...

    RIP AMZ RESTAURANTS

    Interesting! Thanks. 1562715656 Yes, I've already filed for SSDI (disability) and SSI (supplemental income). Should get their decisions in 2 months. If I file for Social Security now instead of at full retirement age (66), I will only receive 80% of my full benefits. That would cost me...

    RIP AMZ RESTAURANTS

    Hertz rammed the charge through my credit union via VISA, despite my account having insufficient funds to cover the entire amount. I disputed the charge through my credit union, which nonetheless closed my account before the dispute was adjudicated.

    RIP AMZ RESTAURANTS

    The state has declared me sufficiently disabled that I am deemed unable to work at a normal office job. My $195 monthly state disability check will disappear the moment I earn more than $200/month. That's my only income right now. Luckily it pays for my (10'x15') $131 storage locker, which...

    RIP AMZ RESTAURANTS

    Can't drive because a whopping $1300+ (unauthorized) charge from Hertz prompted my bank to close my account when I couldn't pay off the resulting overdrawn amount. Closing my account also meant my credit & debit cards were closed--so I can't rent from Hertz. I had anticipated getting a small...
