Business was slow yesterday so I stopped at a Mexican food place to eat. Right after I got my food the wife calls and says there is a movie at the theater, starting very soon, wanna go? Sure.
Wrapped up my food, jetted out. I knew there would be 15 minutes of previews, I could wolf down my food...

I was wrongly deactivated from Uber because a PAX lied and said that I refused a service animal. The PAX never indicated that the dog was anything other than a pet and I didn't want the wet and dirty dog to get into my car. It was raining outside.
The PAX also indicated that it was ok to...
Gave a ride today to a woman with a service dog. I could tell immediately that it was legit.
Before getting in, she asked me where was I okay with the dog. I have a Fit, and put the back seats up so it could sit on the floor.
Surprisingly, it was a simple, plain vanilla experience
*Not my car

I got a ride request and a young lady texted me to tell me she had a LARGE service dog. I texted her back to let her know I have a SMALL car (Nissan Juke). She responded: “No problem”. When I got there, she brought out a harlequin GREAT DANE!! :eek:
This was not a dog, it was a small pony...

Took a Lyft today, over the river and through the woods, to grandmother's house.
The driver was blind, but it was okay because their service dog rode up front.
On a serious note, saw lots of law enforcement out looking for speeders and drunks. Watch out for speed traps if you drive this...
