    One of my best 'Pax's' yet...

    So, I'm at home, U/L apps on - scanning UP.net. Ping- it's Uber (yea), and it's about 2 miles away! I’m on the way, and I get a call which I knew was the rider. He says I’ve got many bags and I’m going to the airport. I asked him in a nice tone of voice did you order an XL? He said yes. I said...

    Pay me $17 b/c she is cancelling?...

    Yep. I was at home, like now again, waiting for a ping. Get a Fubar ping, 1.1 miles from me/home- accept. Get there, and I see a woman walking out of her condo. I'm thinking 'great, she's ready to go' She walks up to my window, I roll it down. She says "I have access to a car now, can I just...

    Why is my backseat floorboard always dirty?

    I mean really, WHAT are these people walking thru before they get in? Nearly every day I clean the mats and what, do these people like toss a little hand full of gravel/dirt in the floorboard every time they get in? Now I understand when I was driving on snowy days, or wet days, but nice dry...

    Pet peeves regarding some Pax's...

    If you use the 3 pronged phone charger that's in my map pocket behind my front passenger seat, WITHOUT ASKING, have the courtesy to at least PUT IT BACK where you found it!!! And to be honest, I notice most with millenial, educated PAX! AND, Honda put a loop of elastic to keep the Seatbeat...

    My Rating?

    So with Fubar- which I don't mind that much, have great customer service, etc. I'm now at a 4.88, nearly 1000+ rides. But with GFryft, which I don't like that much usually, and don't often have as good of attitude with it/riders? 5.0! ~ 500 rides?

    I contacted Lyft for an XL upgrade after the ride....

    So, I get a lyft ping a few days ago. I show up, it's a family of 5, riding on the mothers moms (the grandmom) account. I mention to them that this is not an XL ride. Mom states she has no idea, doesn't use rideshare normally. I told them to get in, I would take them- Thinking I would just...

    $8.50 surge? Until....

    I usually try and start my drives with a ping from home. Usually works well. Today, I look at the app, around my home- a suburb neighborhood, there is a red area and a $850 surge? I figure OK, I've seen this before. Still no ping btw. I go to get in my SUV, and look at the app in the garage...

    I guess all those drivers at MKE Airport did not get the memo.

    The Celtics! In my SUV!...

    So, I'm having a great afternoon/evening. Get an X out of town, then get an XL back to town!!! As you may know, Our Milwaukee Bucs are home again tomorrow night for Game 5 of the series. Bucs lead the Celtics 3-1, and they could clinch it tomorrow night here at home. F the strike- I'd...

    My Friday, 4/26/19, first $300+ day/night - ending with Billy Joel...

    Yea he was pissed at his limo driver- and called an Uber - J/K Yesterday I drove a few hours in the morning, a few hours after lunch, and a few hours at night, eating and completing things at home if I wasn't driving. Morning and afternoon went well/OK. I should do better research about the...

    So, I’m in the TNC lot in Milwaukee-waiting… and I’ve been here for just over a half hour. The cues still say fall despite at least six or seven cars have left the lot to go get PAX. Maybe I’d fit in better if I smoked like seemingly everybody else that’s here. It’s a beautiful day and I arrived...

    Does Gryft think scolding their drivers somehow helps?

    I'm so tired of EVERY TIME you miss a gryft request, they give you that silly thing to acknowledge, and then a message about missing requests, and always suggest going off app to take a break. HEY GRYFT- You're lucky I take ANY of your pings! I try not to, but occasionally do to help...

    Lyft gives me Anxiety...

    First of all, for all you loyal to Lyft, I mean no offense to you, Lyft, any rider, etc. I've been doing Uber about 9 wks, Lyft about 4-5 wks. In my market, Milwaukee metroplex, I find I dread turning on the Lyft app. Mainly because the riders most often take me to the area of town far away...

    I was beyond cool, until she blamed it on me- I kicked her out- was a free ride for her anyways...

    I'm going to tell/post this as nearly as I can remember today's events. I had several more Pax after this. I don't know anyone personally on here, and I don't feel I need to make myself look 'better' for this or anyone. I'm very honest and will be factual. I don't have a dash cam. I'll put a...

    So I turn on the apps around 6:30 this morning. Uber has a $750 surge about 3 miles from my home. I make a quick breakfast and get a cup of coffee. I look at the app again, the same red cloud 3 miles from my home is now up to $11! I use the restroom, and get in my SUV, and start to back out...

    '08 Honda PilotSE, thankd for the venting power sunroof!

    When some riders smells/reeks and it's not pleasant, I vent the sunroof open! Usually always works. Luckily, most all Paxs' smell good/great!

    Oh, can we just stop at the store right there?....

    Did you put in 2 stops? Uh, no, all the other dirvers have no problem with it. ** As if there's some kind of standard for breaking the rules? Well, I wlll this time, but for the next driver, please put in 2 stops. Happened again this morning- a fast food worker going to work late, had to stop...
