About last night....

Stayed home until the end of the very disappointing Raps game....

Went out and did the rush hours but it was very slow in the burbs.

Last 3 am run was a bunch of drunk punks that put me in a bad mood.

Took at break in Tims parking lot and tried to have a power nap.

Woke up at 4 AM and tuned on the app hoping to get some airport runs (tip - lots of people go to the airport between 4 am and 6 am). Immediately got a ping.

Went to start the car and guess what...battery was dead. I had the radio on and my phone/dashcam plugged in while on accessory mode.

Roadside assistance for a boost was a 2 hour wait...

7 hours, $64 dollars -gas and 2 Tims coffees and a cancellation, feeling like a dumbass...priceless

Moral of the story. The Raptors ruined my night. Screw you Raptors☺

Edit - I did get a tip from one of the drunk punks last night. .on his way out of the car he told me to get a real f'in job....I pray I get to interview him in my day gig one day....

I had something like that happen years ago.
Kid was a total a**H*** to me at a club and made a comment I was a Homeless, jobless street sleeper. Few days later, shows up for an interview, and I'm there assisting... -- didn't recognize me.
Made him think he had the job, and dragged him in for 3 interviews after that.. (he thought he was a Shoe in)., and then we brought up ethics outside the workplace... . I added an extra case to the "what would you do" questions... "If you thought you met a Homeless bum in a club, how would you address him?"

He looked at me... said thanks, and left.
the Other interviewer didn't realize the question was included.

OH.. each trip cost the guy about $15 parking, and we would make him wait at least an hour each time. -- Seems he lost his existing job too, for being absent so much!

That sucks man. You should've called and Uber for a boost for a fee.

One day I got a ping from a guy a km away who had a dead battery. I went there and he told me if i could give his car a boost for a fee. $20 for a few mins of work.

Part of the reason I do so well between 4 and 6 am is because there are absolutely no Uber's in my area at that time. Any car that I could find would probably have to book 10-15 min to me.

So....this has been my worst uber weekend since I started this gig.....first ride yesterday was this stinky guy who was off his shift at a restaurant. Super nice but he smelled like shit. ...

Seems like the smell lingered all night....

Was tired because of my battery debacle the previous night so started home early...

Got a ping on the 401 on my way back to Durham..figured it would be a shorty.
It was to South mississauga....had to deadhead back.

I need a vacation from making money for my vacation. ☺
