    Well, I did it...I locked my keys in my car just now. Surprisingly though, using the roadside assistance through the Uber app, I am getting immediate help! For all the bad things Uber does, this one might actually work!

    Picking up Jesus

    Had the opportunity of a lifetime, got pinged by Jesus the other night. I was truly grateful for the opportunity, but I was a bit surprised, he honestly seemed highly annoyed by all the questions I had for him. He did not tip, but I am not sure that tipping was a thing in Nazareth where he...

    How many dead miles do you drive?

    Compared to your miles with a passenger, how many dead miles do you average. do you average 50 dead miles for every 100 miles with a passenger? If so, that would be your profit from 100 miles minus $29 that would be taxable income (not counting other deductions).

    I'm a new driver

    What is a ballpark estimate of amount of money I need to save to get close to covering my taxes at the end of the year? Should I save 30% of my earnings specifically for taxes? Even if it is not right on, as long as it is close, that is the main thing for me. Yes, I am tracking my mileage.
