    Year end summary. Whose?

    In finalizing my mileage log for 2017 last night, I compared my logged trip count to the total the number of 'completed trips' in my Uber-provided *not-a-tax-document summary, and found it was off by about 3% and total net payments was off by about 8%, both lower than actual. Hell, tolls didn't...
