    I browse craigslist personal ads and troll lonely ladies and "straight married men" .

    I get them to send me nudes and then blackmail them. I know it's wrong but the price of gas went up...

    This is crazy. What's going to happen when these bots start showing up at real jobs ignoring clear social cues that are meant to alienate and marginalize it?

    Thanks. Gator Nation looked impressive with that 30-3 beating over Iowa. Hopefully they can continue and get back to dominance.

    One can hope. I lived in Gainesville / was in collage in the mid 90's, so I was spoiled by that era. Had a good run during the Tebow years, but the last few have been less than stellar. Hopefully soon, we will be back in National Dominance.

    yep...9 of 12 NYE fares were short on the surge or the boost. And when the did "correct," often it was for 60-70% of what it should be. Most took 3 messages from me to get it corrected. STILL HAVE NOT BEEN PAID on that yet.

    Thanks uber.

    Wait, you are a girl ? I thought you had to be 18 or over to drive Uber.

    So are you jail bait, or a woman?

    I spend any and all downtime cleaning my car and going to the store to replace amenities. Sometimes it is hard to find my gourmet mints, but Fiji is never hard to hunt down.

    You forgot to mention that you come here and reference mints and or aux cord on every post.

    I spend my 'Down Time' driving entitled millennials from bar to bar for $3 a pop (which Uber collects more than $5.65 for).

    This is probably the best advice in this thread. For me, this means switching to my Eats profile and turning off the other TNC apps. For you, that might mean signing up for Grubhub, Postmates & DoorDash..whatever's available in your locale.

    I tend to sit at home and watch the phone. There's no reason I should be in one place instead of another. Around here, it doesn't seem important where I am. I get rides from 15 minutes away in any direction, and I don't know why since it looks like from the rider app that there are several drivers nearby.

    But I think I've determined that sitting at home is just as effective as sitting anywhere else.
