Ok I am interested in hearing your replies, for real. I am sure you get asked constantly, "So how do you like driving for U/L?" For some unknown reason, pax think we are killing it and rolling in the dough. I had a pax tell me that one driver said he makes $3500 a week. My reply was, not in this market he doesn't maybe $3500/mo. She looked confused with that answer.

My reply is typically the same every time. I reply back "It's a pretty good part time gig. Can't really make a living doing this. It works out to be about $10-$12/hr when it's all said and done. But I meet some great people, get out of the house and make a little extra to help with my kids college education (plug for a tip)"

I drive a Lexus, so I get a lot of, well this is a nice car for $10/hr. I reply, I had this car before I started to drive U/L. Started doing it between jobs now it's just extra income for tuition (second plug for tip).

Who is the knucklehead lying to pax about how much we make?

I kind of treat them like a job interview question like tell me a little about yourself, and then hit them with a story, with some tweaks depending on who I am talking too. To me this is just an opportunity to get a tip and a signal from the pax that they like to talk during rides lol
