    Saddle Up! Students Return Aug 1

    It's sad....this past weekend would have been circled on my calendar and now it has no appeal to me. While I am not concerned about myself had I gotten covid but those around me that are high risk. Think about where most of these kids that are staying in dorms are coming from...areas worse...

    Insurance for Deliveries?

    There is no insurance in upstate NY for ride share or food delivery or Amazon, etc. You literally run the risk that you don't have any incidents while you are out driving. In my 3 years of anting...I had been Hit n Run twice and spun my car twice on icy roads without damage. I also used a...

    Anyone getting ready to start again?

    Make sure you are pulling up with doors locked everytime. You can solve all issues through a car window instead of an open side door.

    Anyone getting ready to start again?

    You can all have it too....I started a new job 3 weeks and the huge bump in pay was enough to completely take the gap from what I was previously making in salary plus Uber money, without all of the gas expense and wear and tear. I said I wasn't going to come back until college kids return and...

    Corona Virus = $$$

    Im not taking the chance because my mother in law will be moving in with us in May and she just got over back to back cancer episodes. Also, the lack of activity has made the beast get old quick too. I am now squirting antifreeze out near my thermostat onto the engine, causing it to smoke...

    Once this stupid pandemic is over

    Airfare is so cheap right now, I am going to take the trip to Italy that I always wanted. Side Note, My Mother drove back from Florida (to NY) and she said that the Florida/Georgia state line was backed up because police set up a checkpoint at the border. Only a matter of time before other...

    Deactivated and terrified

    I am curious...what help were you looking for? You said you husband knowingly made a decision that he knew that was going to get him released, so what additional help could he assumed he was going to get?

    States with stay at home orders

    Anyone who goes out now, especially in a Stay At Home state is just irresponsible and reckless. Its not like you can go out there and clean up because the amount of rides has also dropped way off too. Why would you be out there making less than $15/hr (before expenses) and putting yourself...

    Uber & Lyft Are Dead

    The fact that you are surprised that the amount of ants has significantly decreased scares me more than the virus.

    Corona Virus = $$$

    If you need a source of income, call your local food joints and bars...ask them, do you need a delivery driver. Fuq all of the food delivery services and their high fees. Make a deal with a place and help them be more viable. The place I get my pizza from, I talked to the owner last night...

    My ant coworker just sent me a message and asked if I was going to go out driving this weekend. Now, he knows full well that I drive exclusively Friday and Saturday Nights, when people are going to the bars....the exact same time he drives and asked if I was driving this weekend. LOL Idiot...

    Clinging to Hope

    If you are banking on a scratch off ticket to help you make ends meet, you have already made enough bad decisions up to this point. Best to find another line of work.

    Rideshare is dead. I can only imagine ants out there fighting to get a single ping per hour...and most happy to do it too.
