    "We're on our way out"

    I just wanted a few hours of driving. I stuck to the suburbs (by way of a DF anchor). When I got to the huge house party, it looked like people were out back somewhere. After a little waid, I texted. Entitilda replied, "We're on our way out. " So the 7 minute pickup time was not enough lead...

    DF and Pool don't mix

    Here, I'll beat you to it. "You nincompoop, why are you accepting pool trips--especially in the suburbs?" = = = So Thursday night, with only a few rides to attain the Quest bonus (35 x $60), I accepted a pool ride. My DF was set for home near Joliet. From Matteston, pool trips hurled me clear...

    Said Goodbye to a $120 Fare...

    First fare for the evening was an individual requesting a trip from Northern Tampa to Orlando. An estimated $120 Fare. Needless to mention, I eagerly accepted his route and made sure the passenger was comfortable for his hour and a half ride; offering a bottle of water and candy. As the trip...

    Did they change the 5 min no show?

    I was sitting outside a hotel for a pickup today, and my 5 min timer went off. I gave it another 30-60 seconds, cancelled, and drove off. I noticed that I did not receive the $6 cancel charge anymore. Did they change the time limit or do I need to file a ticket for it?

    How do I skip without penalization

    I sometimes get a ping from 30 minutes away. Can I cancel these without being penalized? I had this happen twice and the customer has canceled twice. This is fine but if I pick up a pax from thirty minutes away, I've already used a gallon of fuel, you know where I'm going from here. If they...
