    Furious Over Falling Pay, Los Angeles Uber Drivers Prepare to Strike

    Why is It So Slow? (Is it just me?)

    He’s probably one of those naive types who drank the Uber-Aid and bought a nice car for Uber. Now he’s kicking his own butt and is trying to put a brave face on his iladvised decision. When I go out on Saturday nights, I can’t help but notice there’s not as much people out partying 🎊 these...

    Post your best Pool rides

    Now that you’ve mentioned it, I probably should.

    Post your best Pool rides

    UBER DF changes in Chicago. Has this already been implemented in Toronto?

    I wouldn’t bet the family farm on that

    UberEATS is DONE

    Back in your 20s, the average Torontonian’s paycheque used to have more spending power than they do now. Even I used to tip back in the day.
