    Made a rookie mistake

    I've learned that you do have to immediately decide what crosses your personal threshold as far as what you're willing to put up with from pax. Because really, the only two options are kick them out, or grin and bear it. And if you choose the latter, you can't sulk. But truth be told I think...

    Got Jokes/Short Stories?🥛🤭

    What do you call some hot and sweaty sex down here in the south? Relative humidity.

    Can you make it?

    I try to go out 3 nights per week for $100+ each time. That way it stays nice and focused and my goal isn't too lofty. The cost of living here is cheap so it really helps out if I can just make that little bit.

    Valentine’Day coming up .

    We usually just go out to dinner or go to Publix and buy some yummy things for a night at home whereby we don't have to cook. Buffalo Wild Wings last year. And I bought her a nice comfy chair for the spare room that she wanted. As well as a gigantic stuffed sloth which I regretted because we had...

    Cars that should not be used to uber in

    Reliability trumps mpg for me. I don't care if a car gets 20 miles per gallon, so long as it stays out of the shop. Gas is cheap. I've had cars that spent almost all their time with me out of commission. So I would say either very high end luxury cars, or Range Rovers and Jaguars would be the...

    Who is driving on MLK Day?

    Poor MLK. Dead 50 years and Mississippi is still a shithole. I did have a dream in the early hours of this morning, but it was about pizza. For those who don't know, I'm an addict. And I'm not driving today. It's one of those aimless days full of people going to visit their mother, or coming...

    Her stiletto meets my headliner

    To be fair, a lady in stilettos is hard to resist. But as a driver I think I would've tried to gently correct their behavior in some form or another. We steer things in certain directions in more ways than one.

    Sad, sad story of long-time Uber drivers: no sympathy

    Yeah, Uber has diminishing returns after x amount of hours or miles per week. It's important people realize that. I do fine as I have 2 incomes so I can sit on my butt if I choose, but others are not so lucky. Especially with how slow it's been lately, I would be living out of my car if I only...

    Racist? Don't think so

    The whole racism thing is out of hand. People are just pointing fingers willy nilly nowadays. It's like some scavenger hunt, with accusers jumping up and down with excitement when they think they've uncovered something that backs it up. A very odd hobby for sure. I don't even pretend to...

    "You have an umbrella already. Just let me have this one."

    If this story is for real it's about time that asteroid hits us. I'm done.

    Do not use any air freshener

    I wonder if Asian folks see our writing and think "Big Mac" the way I instinctively see theirs and think "Crab rangoons." I never really thought about that before but I imagine it does go both ways to some degree. I forget what this thread was even about.

    I only wear my Express jeans for rideshare, they are super comfy and I'm a stylish duck. I respect people that go out in sweats, but I'm a bit too self conscious to wear mine out of the house.

    TRIGGERED: Picked up an Asian Lawyer, told me his dad is a Doctor, drove him 25 miles, great chat.....NO TIP

    I'm crying! But then I did just pluck a really stubborn nose hair.

    Fast uber driver

    Kilometers and Celsius... Canada maybe? Also, no phone on the dash. Seems weird. Anyway, still not fast enough. Do you want that McD's drive thru stat or what, paxhole? Sheesh.

    TRIGGERED: Picked up an Asian Lawyer, told me his dad is a Doctor, drove him 25 miles, great chat.....NO TIP

    I blame America's corporate practices for this, not paying people full wages. Having people depend on tips to survive really should be illegal. It honestly is a US-only thing too. I've lived in many countries and they all pay servers etc a normal wage. Tips are only 10% at best, and often split...

    Safest Driver Contest

    I will win, because I totally never space out on the highway and come to a screeching halt within a foot of the car in front of me when traffic stops. Nosiree. Not today at least.

    Pax wouldn’t get out

    That video never gets old. Granny or not, you're at the God damn liquor store. Damn you to hell!

    Does Uber care about its black passengers?

    I live and operate in predominantly black neighborhoods and areas. There are countless black drivers here. That's the case all through the south and in just about every large urban area in the US too. I also wish news publications didn't give these disgruntled segments of society such...

    Do you bring your own food ?

    I never eat in my Uber car. It's only drinks + mints for me inside it. I will eat a medium sized meal before heading out, then the 5 hour energy after. It counteracts the after meal sleepiness and stops me getting a (lack of caffeine) headache. And anything that keeps me on the road is good in...
