God Hates Me

Beware... LONG POST with some tongue in cheek.

Yesterday I did suburb runs. I couldn't get out of the burbs for nothing. When I move towards the city I got sucked back into the same area. I finally make it to ORD (had to turn off the app, because i kept being sent bk to Schaumburg and the like for 1 mile rides.

At ORD I figured I had a chance to get to downtown. On every typical day for me most of all my rides are headed to Chicago. On this particular day when I want to go to the cityl, of course the pax wants to go to the burbs. F'ing. South BARRINGTON!!!!!

I take him, ride was uneventful.

Side note: Pulled up to this huge mansion. Of course No tip.

Anyway...

While in Barrington, I got a few pings the 1st pings was more than I usually go for a pick up l, 4 miles. I figured I would do it this time as it was probably my only way out of this scarcely populated area of million dollar mansions and such.

Anyway, pax canceled as I was on my way, @$!#! I should have followed my own rule, but decided to take the chance but pax canceled.

I immediately get another ping. thank goodness! It was a little less mileague this time probably 2.5 miles.

I finally get to the address after driving a lot of winding dark roads in another million dollar mansion community in South Barrington. Once I arrived I pulled into a long meandering driveway and wait...wait... and wait.. probably at 2.5 mins.

No one came out, I decided to text pax, against my rule #2. Since I was in someone's driveway that I was unsure of...I felt I was evading some one private space not knowing that I was in the right place.

Turns out, It was the wrong address!! A drop pin nonetheless. The guy texts me the right address. It was 2 miles from where I was. @$!#!!!

#IhatedropPins

Anyway, I cancel after that. I get my cancellation fee. I look at the address and @$!#&*^%@!!! It was to an address near where I live. It was about an 30 mile ride. I literally swore outloud. You've got to be kidding. This is Just my luck, just my luck.

So today, I get a ping in my neighbor and as luck has it, it is the same guy I canceled on. Same name and same address.

Just my luck.

I hope he didn't remember me, he didn't mention it and I didnt either.

That is why God hates me. And oh. UBER TOO. Oh wait is Uber God?

I also live in NWI. Why don't you drive in Chicago? All you need to do is get your vehicle inspection in Chicago ($20) instead of NWI.
I had gotten my inspection. Im able to drove in Chicago. But I'm still new an confused where to go in the city. I will get a pax from Ind to Chicago an I'll try to I've while I'm out there an I wait an wait and maybe it's the places I'm at but I end up coming back to Ind. An downtown scares me. To much traffic an ppl but for the most part I just stay close to home cause I'm familiar with this area. I do need to get out there an try again though. I just don't know where places are an I can't afford 20$in gas there and back unless I'm making money..

If downtown frightens you, then you need to stay away...it endangers everyone around you if you're not comfortable.

You probably need to stay in the south suburbs like Tinley park and surrounding area. You still may get requests to go to Chicago though.

Try doing Chicago on a less busy day. Like a Tuesday to get comfortable. Tuesday in the daytime.

Will it doesn't frighten me. I just get confused an I'm not experienced enough to uber downtown. So I do stay outta there and leave it to the pros.

I normally do. But I didnt. I didn't mind going to south barrington. It was because I didn't ask they guy I canceled on where he was going that messed me up. I was so frustrated with the pin drop destination and that the guy didnt try to contact me once he saw i wasnt at the destination he wanted for pickup. I wanted him to pay for it with a no show cancellation. But in the end I was the one that paid for it.

Kudo's to you! There are so many drivers in the city that feel as you do but still take the chance. You will find your niche in the areas you feel comfortable and you will be fine.

There are definitely a lot of bewildered drivers downtown right now, doing lots of hazardous stuff. I had to consider a list of less polite adjectives before settling on 'hazardous'.
