    I was going to skip this thread after the initial post which was so obviously an Uber shill. But then I started reading the first couple comments and it wound up being the best laugh I've had all week. Especially this one--

    You know you're a redneck if you're standing in the frozen food section of a supermarket and staring really hard at a can of frozen orange juice because it says concentrate!!!

    Why can't she just perform illegal abortions at least there would be fewer future drivers to compete for that $7.25 an hour.

    I drive around until I am in a place with trips again. Dead miles hurt but wasting time making no money while waiting for a trip in a dead zone hurts even more.

    You said it. Get to know your city and potential passengers daily habits. Maybe even eat lunch while pax at lunch?

    I studied real estate and finished it in 2 months, passed on first attempt. Otherwise, I keep a great paperback handy that I've only had a chance to read a couple of pages. Lastly, guaranteed, get into a Taco Bell drive through and you WILL get a call.

    I've rebooted my phone when it seems the apps are dead. If that doesn't work, I delete the app and reinstall and that really worked.

    Try rebooting your phone if it seems like the app is dead. You shouldn't have to wait THAT long for a call. If that doesn't work, delete your app and reinstall it.

    What I do in this situation is grab a pair of snow goggles and toss them into the backseat. Then I:
    1) Grab the sawed off I keep under my dash and shoot out the windshield with a slug
    2) Wedge it to the accelerator
    3) Hook my toes thru the steering wheel and slide out onto the hood with a nylon line
    4) Lasso the kitten and pull it out of harm's way
    5) Snake back into the seat and continue on
    6) Replace the windshield with one I "procure" from a generous local donor (hey, he would want me to have it as payment for a good deed).

    Doesn't always work though...snaring a kitten from the hood of a moving car while laying on your belly is slightly more difficult than the calf ropers make it look.
