    Is anyone else concerned that another big stimulus (either in UI or lump sum payments) will be catastrophic long term?

    Yeah, it depends on what type of crisis you think is going to happen. In a currency crisis where the value of the dollar collapse, you'd need gold to preserve your purchasing power. But if there is some sort of total societal collapse, gold won't be good for much, and you'd be better off with...

    Loseing Uberx status because of passanger seating

    We are talking about 2 different cars. The 2015 is like your photo, 2 bucket seats int the back. The 2016 has a smaller center console, so there is a 3rd seat, but it would still be terrible for rideshare purposes.

    Is anyone else concerned that another big stimulus (either in UI or lump sum payments) will be catastrophic long term?

    Yeah, since there is nowhere else to go, we could just glide along like this for awhile. It would take some event to cause a loss of confidence in the Western economies. But the way this market is now, all the share price gains are in the new major names, so you are basically forced to buy them...

    Is anyone else concerned that another big stimulus (either in UI or lump sum payments) will be catastrophic long term?

    I have been preparing for whatever happens next. I have cash in the bank, cash in my investment account, some physical metals, and I am gathering my "prepper" supplies. I am also refinancing my house to pull equity out while the market it very high. Even if I just put it right into the bank for...

    Is anyone else concerned that another big stimulus (either in UI or lump sum payments) will be catastrophic long term?

    There is a long history of countries letting their finances get out of control, of the central bank printing money, and that resulting in inflation. Most recently in Venezuela. So yeah it's a big concern. On the other hand, literally every 1st world country is doing this, as well as China ($38T...

    Mitsubishi Outlander Bluetooth issues

    I've got a 2017 Chevy Cruze. Everything worked fine until I got a new iPhone SE. Now whenever I log into Uber, the bluetooth acts like I'm calling myself, and my screen just shows my phone number and the timer counting the seconds as long as the Uber app is open. I can't use the radio or the...

    How to get out of a speeding ticket

    Or you can just plead not guilty, and on the your court date show up and wrangle with the prosecutor. They have better things to do that litigate every ticket, and will likely knock down the fine or just dismiss it as long as it wasn't reckless driving or as long as you're not a frequent flyer.

    Loseing Uberx status because of passanger seating

    One thing I've noticed about Uber, for a company that revolves around cars, their people know nothing about cars. That's how cars like the current generation Honda Insight get banned even though it's the exact same car as the current generation Honda Civic. I know someone who got away with...

    What do you ants do when a pax asks for an added stop right before drop off?

    Anyway, the solution is clear: If you want to keep Ubering, then you're trading in that old Volt for either Prius or maybe an older Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Maybe A Chevy Malibu Hybrid or Ford Fusion Hybrid - if you really want a hybrid to Uber in. Honestly I'd skip the hybrid altogether and just...

    Loseing Uberx status because of passanger seating

    You bought a car for Uber KNOWING that it didn't have the required seating capacity. And now you are complaining? 1606514059 The first generation Chevy Volt can only seat 2 in the back seat. That's what OP bought. There is a large hump in the middle that holds the batteries, so a 3rd person...

    I guess some people will go hungry when they don't tip... One Subway customer was waiting at least an hour.

    That must be why Uber keeps turning Eats back on for me. They are desperate to get the food delivered. Who is taking it in the shorts if the food doesn't get delivered? Uber or the restaurant?

    I guess some people will go hungry when they don't tip... One Subway customer was waiting at least an hour.

    I can't even imagine the idea of accepting a $2.50 delivery. What's even the point? Are we wait staff working for $2.34 an hour plus tips?? I don't think so. Keep declining this crap!

    Fulltime

    This. I do full time only weekdays, and I go home mid day because it slows way down, and I hate Eats. You can make money doing this full time, but it's pointless to be sitting in your car for an hour waiting for trips. So you've got to plan out when you work

    Driving during Covid-19

    I started driving again as soon as the extra unemployment ran out, and I've been earning more than ever. The last 2 weeks have gotten softer on Uber, and I've had to turn on Lyft, but otherwise good. There was surge in August and September, but that's totally gone now. Here are my total gross...

    Selfie photo with mask - smile

    I was logging in while at the ATM yesterday, and I turned my head back towards the ATM right after I took the photo, and the app took a totally blurry action shot of me. It accepted it.

    Dropping off at a school, proper etiquette

    The employee shouldn't have needed to get dropped off at the same entrance as the kids. They should've had OP go to the side entrance where the teachers park

    If the minimum wage were hiked to $15/hr, would you stop hustling and take a regular job?

    Seen it. I used to see cars and saw whole families (mom, dad, 2 minor kids) and all 4 were collecting disability. They drove to the dealership, walked in, sat down, had a conversation with me, could read and write, no canes, no wheelchairs, nothing. Disabled.

    If the minimum wage were hiked to $15/hr, would you stop hustling and take a regular job?

    I agree that the minimum wage should vary by region. But I think everyone ought to agree that the federal minimum wage of $7.25 is too low, and unfortunately a good 1/2 the country still is following the $7.25. Even in low cost of living area, the cost of living hasn't gone up in 10 years??

    If the minimum wage were hiked to $15/hr, would you stop hustling and take a regular job?

    I was a manager for Wal-Mart for 13 years. I had employees say that to me. It's ridiculous that "anti-poverty" programs actually keep people from advancing themselves. $15 in my market is nothing. Even a single person wouldn't be able to afford their own place. Maybe a room in someone's house...
