I'm tired of being practical and would love a new car. I've been thinking about buying a Mercedes Cla class and then signing up for uber part time to pay it off monthly. I'm already a contractor for the U.S. Postal service and I live right next door, so no mileage going to work every day. Do you think this is a good idea? I just want to make $500 at the minimum every month. Second, how many hours would I have to work to reach my goal? And how much wear and tear (mileage) would it put on my vehicle?
Edit: To clarify, I'm a sub-contractor and I don't use my own vehicle working for the post office. I make $36k -42k a year
I picked up a female rider this morning in the wee hours. Firstly she had placed the pin on the other side of the neighborhood from where she actually was. When she called I could hear her slurring through the phone as she tried to clarify her location. I finally located her and got her into the car.
When I verified the destination address she had put into the app (which was obviously a residence) she said she had changed her mind and gave me the address of a strip club she had left her car at instead. Since it was 4 in the morning, I was pretty sure the place was not open. I inquired if she was meeting someone there and she said she was going to get her car and drive home (around 15 miles from the club).
I spent pretty much the entire ride trying to convince her that this was a terrible idea. I mentioned the possibility of DUI, hurting herself or someone else and was quickly dismissed with a "oh I have been doing this for over 8 years. It will be fine."
It really bothered me...
