    I am in a spot where I, regretfully, have to sell some of my badges. It has taken me a year of collecting and hard work (at 10 hours per week average driving) to accumulate a fairly remarkable collection of badges.
    I will let them go for $1 each or five for $4.
    This is an opportunity for the driver to really show off their 'professional' skills, or 'expert navigation', or prove once and for all that you are a 'great conversationalist'. All of these badges are virtually unused, in mint uncirculated condition, and can be displayed on a resume - or tombstone.
    Free shipping and handling.

    BUT WAIT ... if you act NOW, we will include a free (refurbished and slightly used) professional grade barf bag.
    Act now. Operators are waiting.

    I will take the Cool Car, I need it since I drive a honda fit and never get that one.

    Will you take a trade? I can give you .05 from my rating in exchange?

    That is the rarest one I have. I don't have a very cool car either, I guess (an '03 Toyota Avalon) so, sorry, I have to stick to my price.
    Interesting that 'navigation' is my most common complaint, LoL. That and 'professionalism'.

    No to the partnership. Too many hit the market at once and the value will go down.
    I learned that lesson from Uber.

    And, yea, zero badges for 'great music' for me.
    I guess some people don't like Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage.
    And, why did they take Dr. Laura off the air?

    A badge that I do not have but desire with every fiber in my body is the 'Great Amenities' badge.

    If you have this rare gem, I'll give you $50 for it, plus I'll pay for express shipping.

    Alas, amenities is not what my 15 yr old Toyota with cracked leather seats is known for.
    It does have a great cassette player in it though. No eight track.
    But the driver is charming and entertaining - and kinda cute.

    Wait people actually leave notes? I guess I need to step up my game. 310 trips and only 12 badges.

    How TF do you get an entertaining driver badge? Please share your entertainment strategy! :)

    Don't stress, a lot of the notes people got before badges were a thing. I miss getting as many notes now that people just give badges.

    I too need the cool car badge.

    People love the hell out of my van (the international Chinese students googled Optimus Prime to tell me that's what they were calling it) but nobody has given me the cool car badge yet. The drummer for a well known Nashville musician told me it was his dream car. Guess nobody wants to put it in ink that a van is cool.

    I'm still in awe of my cool tunes badges. I figured I'd never get those. Funnily enough got my 1st one after I forgot to turn Limbaugh off after the pax loaded up one day.

    Well, it kind of goes hand in hand with 'great conversationalist'.
    I am good looking, intelligent, well educated. Truly a charming person. Well loved by all who know me, and most wish they could BE me.
    Mostly tho ... I am humble and shy. (Just more endearing qualities).

    Uber is lucky to have me.
    Hell, humanity is lucky to have me.

    Pax often tell me that I'm funny.

    My wife says Don't let it go to your head, looks aren't everything.

    Pax tell me I remind them of their school Principal when I tell them to "please behave yourself in the vehicle or there will be consequences" :)

    While I will not part with all my cool car badges, for the right price I can give up one or two.
    Listing will be up in EBay later today.
    Bidding will start at $14.99 or buy it now for $80.

    I usually just turn slightly and look at them, with, that look. You know. That look, and quietly say "Don't make me stop this car".
    Freezes them. (or they laugh at me, one or the other)

    See? Right?
    Now wouldn't you give up a badge for that routine?
