    I Hate This On-Demand Hell.

    Seriously, the jerk who came up with "Let's have them use their own car, pay their own expenses, all with a smile like they're earning a net profit." I can see teenagers doing this, mom and dad foot the gas bill and maintenance bill. But not a grown adult with bills and car note and other...

    I'm So Poor Driving For These Companies.

    Every time I find a new job on Craigslist (gig or something) it never evens out to the money I make with Lyft/Uber. Yesterday (Sunday 4/16/15) I made $150 (sans 20% commission) In 4 hours. And honestly there's nothing else like that. To the naysayers who talk about "costs" my car is under...

    Ultimate Lyft Goals

    This morning I Lyfted some actual employees and they admitted to needing to onboard alot of new drivers due to constantly surging in SF. This I explained was counterproductive because surge is what motivates me to go out and break my back (my car actually) and give rides. Come to think about...
