    NBA season suspended

    The NBA has suspended its season "until further notice" after a Utah Jazz player tested positive Wednesday for the coronavirus. "The NBA is suspending game play following the conclusion of tonight's schedule of games until further notice,'' the league said in a statement issued shortly after...

    Another rant about jackasses eating in my car....

    I swear I'm getting to the point where I'm just going to outright cancel ride requests where the pax has food in their hands. It's bad enough when they bring that mess into my car, but then when they start eating without even asking, wtf is wrong with people? I had to tell a guy the other day...

    Messing with Pax.....

    So, I'm a little bored and think I'm going to mess with my pax. I'm going to tell my pax that I'm helping CDC in identifying possible Coronavirus passengers. I have a FLIR for my android device and I'm going to mount it so that it points at my pax getting into the car and identifies if anyone...

    Who's on Depends duty tonight?

    I understand the Eagles concert is on tonight. Any ants going on a "depends" run? I hear they make those adult diapers so discrete that they look like regular underwear. Only problem I have is I don't think they seal well enough to keep any smells inside. Oh, and I'm looking forward to...

    Might be a good deal for Rideshare drivers.....

    May not be available in all areas, but I figure my fellow ants may need a pitstop every now and again...... if there is a better section for this, feel free to move to the appropriate sub forum. https://www.panerabread.com/en-us/mypanera/mypanera-coffee-subscription.html

    Driving during the Super Bowl

    How many of you drove? How many of you stayed to watch the game? If you didn't drive during the game, then you aren't allowed to @@@@@ about low ride count. I was out there, and there was a lot of pings. I just paid about $4000 in property taxes, so my ass was definitely out there. One side...

    Costco/Sam's Club memberships

    For any of you cANTS that do even part-time driving, I highly recommend getting a Costco (or even a Sam's Club) membership. A few things I've found at the local Costco (used to have a Sam's Club card, but let it expire as I found Costco more enjoyable) that really come in handy: Seat covers...

    Was driving today a drag?

    No, not that.... Did anyone pick up any guys dressed in drag going to the Cher concert? I think I may have picked one up, thick relatively butch sounding black woman. I didn't make direct eye contact, mostly because I didn't want her to think me looking for an Adam's Apple was me checking out...

    Thinking of Ubering in an animal trailer......

    So I'm thinking, considering that it seems like every few days that I am cleaning out my back seat, I find "hoof prints" all over my back seat and all over the kick panels that I go ahead and haul a horse trailer around as my means of transporting my Uber pax. I figure that if I'm going to haul...

    The cluster @@@@ of Six Flags

    Anyone get pulled into that nightmare yet? I had the unfortunate luck of picking up a family and having to take them to that fright fest crap. This is why I think Uber/Lyft need to have a surge destination location. You have almost the same nightmare of traffic that you do if you were picking...

    Not sure what offended me more....

    (this is the part where I suggest to the admins that the chat feature that we once had was probably a good idea, as I don't necessarily think that this should be a thread, but figured it needed to be shared nonetheless) Drive around for 20-30 minutes with nary a ping, my evening began with a...

    "You could've asked!"

    I was in a hellish part of town the other night in an area with a lot of bars and restaurants. Typically the pax just want you to shuttle them from one bar to another, which isn't worth the headache. But, I figured I'd go ahead and play the role of good ant and accepted the request. I find...

    Ridecheck, Schmidecheck

    Received an email today and it got me a little excited, no not the Nigerian prince one. Casually see it in my notifications, "Ridercheck?!?!" No, it's Ridecheck. Uber says it will send me a notification if they detect my route is jacked or if they "suspect" a crash. Great, so while driving...

    Anyone carry around business cards?

    Just curious if anyone prints out their own business cards. I have had many people that I've considered sharing out my professional information with, but am trying to figure out if it's best to list my information as a Rideshare professional or an IT professional or a combination of both...

    How bout them Cowboys? No really, how about em?

    It begins, all the ants will be shuttling to and from Arlington. While I don't especially like driving people to big events (it's always a cluster and the rate isn't worth the headache for me) I like that it pulls ants in like a dead frog on the highway. I figure the outlying areas will have...

    I'm predicting Uber/Lyft will be losing approximately 2 drivers soon....

    Watched the story on WFAA at 6pm about Uber and child passengers. They interviewed 2 Uber drivers and I have to say, why did you let the cameraman shoot your cankles? I feel that I need to let my fellow ants know that you two may need to break up your Ubering throughout the day and do a little...

    Disgusting, inconsiderate pax (yes, another thread on this topic)

    I'm getting sick of the disgusting animals that get into my vehicle and treating it like a trash can. A couple of days ago I picked up a few riders and as I went to open the passenger door, I found some trash and a soda that was left opened and almost spilled on my seat. I didn't know who left...
