    Can you do Uber at the same time as UberEats, Lyft, Postmates and Doordash? Or would that not be possible.

    As I understand UberEATS and Uber can not be done at the same time. You can do Uber/Lyft, or UberEATS/Lyft. I just do Uber. I get requests all day long. Just have to know where and what time to drive.

    You can. In fact, I had to have my accounts separated out as I kept getting uber eats pings will sitting in a busy surge area for driving. It was terribly annoying. Unless they changed it, my initial account had X, Select and Eats...so I would get pings from all of them.

    The Answer to this is a no brainer:

    Use any and all down =time on a tablet looking for and applying to any and all jobs that you can get with a legitimate company.
    I did that and FINALLY it paid off in a very big way. I have no Uber drama in my life, I work M-F weekends off and make a pretty damn good salary.
    My point is, use that time wisely and you WILL get a job. It may not be THE job you want, but ask yourself do I really want this Uber job?
    I think the answer is right in front of you.

    Best of luck all!

    If you are Ubering full-time, this is seriously the only correct answer.

    Aww, dude, put down the razor and we'll all have a group hug. Better yet, throw away your razor and buy a tazer! It's the pax that are a good half of our trouble, anyhow...

    Here's the official Uber training video on how to utilize the tazzer:

    You will notice, she's not actually zapping them yet. She's gesturing with it menacingly and making it crackle. Kinda like when you're making gumbo and you want it hot, you shake that pepper over the pot.

    But don't forget 'Karen' is probably a guy, that's what 'robotics' companies like Uber hire, so don't get too excited.

    Maybe she's trying to make 120 in a week and gone past the edge. That incentive sht is dangerous and gonna cause deaths.

    Maybe it's just me, but most of these escalations are the fault of the driver. If you can't deal with *******s or diffuse situations, this is probably not the gig for you. Some people just can't avoid confrontation... these people should not be driving strangers around. I've had my share of a-holes and drunks, but I have always found a way to diffuse the situation. Plus I am hyper aware of my situation and surroundings.

    I usually play with my G.I. Joe, its a lot of fun, you can play with it whenever you want, I don't mind sharing, If you make it really happy then I can reward you as well, would cut your woes about making money during dead time :)

    Ok, Karen, but if you're not a bot why the getty image for your avatar?

    What's this "dead time" you all talk about? If you mean the maybe 10 minutes between pings I enjoy regularly, well I don't know much of anything I can really accomplish in that time.
