    Seriously, I have warned you, don't read any further, and definitely do not do this...

    Okay, don't say I didn't warn you (bolds above).

    When you leave your house to start driving for the day, reset your trip meter, then when you get home from day/night of driving, look at how many miles you have driven. Divide that into your Earnings for that day/night.

    *More to follow, maybe...

    Only do nights here my friend. No morning driving :eek:

    This is something LoveBCLoveBC showed me. It's pretty basic and easy to do, but hard to realize...

    Don't worry, it gets worse. The reality of it all, that is.

    UberLaLaUberLaLa while I applaud your desire to help educate the masses, it would seem to me that if people don't naturally understand these calculations after driving then their ability to comprehend them at all is severely lacking and they are beyond help.

    Yes and no. Some people think on one side of the brain, as opposed to the other. Math ain't my strong suit, so I avoid it. Give me a simple way to do the math, and I will. This is pretty simple.

    I've known for years what a losing proposition driving for Uber is. That's why I have changed things up every chance I get. This little exercise helps me confirm my changes are helping, is all.

    I said even before Uber "Never do the math"

    In this case, it's only gonna depress me, LoL.

    ...and I drive a prius that costs .15 cents a mile to drive.

    But a good thing about the miles, our IRS write off is the same as an 18 wheelers. So I like to soothe myself with that's basically my taxes.

    For God's sake, don't tell me if I'm wrong!

    I usually go to commerce casino. From Pasadena to commerce is about 15 miles depending on the route. I do DF to commerce ...make 40 bucks, and play 40 no limit for free.

    And write that mileage down! that is for your log of business miles driven. Comes in handy at tax time.
