    If tomorrow and Sunday aren't unicorns I'm calling it quits with the rental program. This week has been garbage. No DIA when I fished, ****tu DIAs when I didnt want, piss poor money all day all week.

    Yep this week has been a grind. On Thursday I went online at 3 pm and didn't get home until 630 am. 13 hours online for $230.... and I had to grind it out and just take whatever was sent my way, not how I want to do this job.....
    Friday night much better, went to Red Rocks a couple times, ran up to Evergreen for an XL back down to the View House, and they told me to start the meter when I got their phone call on my way up there, was at least a 20 min deadhead other wise, instead I got over 50 on that one... and ended the night today at $320 on 7 hours.... that's excellent if you ask me....

    3 hrs, 6 rides, $110, 130 miles. Signed in at 2:45 am, got a DIA immediately, 5 minutes away, frontier employee, dropped her off, snagged a UAL employee going home. Then a couple of medium length trips and finished off with a DIA, signed out at 5:52 am. Time for a quick nap, a friend is coming over for me to help her with her car, run some errands, then I'll probably head back out around 4 for a few hours, then do my normal early AM on Sunday.

    Ive drove for Lyft express for a full year when it was free after 70 rides 2 years ago. YOU MUST <---- (not yelling) have a 90% acceptance rate, zero prime hours pick up. Fast forward a year later they keep raising the bar to 92 rides, 90% acceptance rate, 42 prime hour pick up. Now it's 105 rides for 80% off the rental or some bogus crap like that.

    Lyft gave me good rides to start then all the sity rides later that year, hardly any airports unless no cars within 10min, You're technically Lyft Princess the first 3 months and then you're Lyft escort then a year later you're Lyft whooreee

    Since I did away with the program and bought a nice used car 2015 or newer... feel like Lyft and uber are fighting for me to give me the best deals ex CRB better Surge better PTs sometimes I'll be at the pigpen and lyft will give me rides at 40+ because they know I have Uber running.

    I use lyft very infrequently and they send me increasingly better offers to get me to sign on and do some rides. I still prefer Uber by far so I tend to just use it, although I would say that the CRBs are not as good as they used to be for me. I'm glad I hit those hard when I had it, got the $10 for 3 all night and ran that into the ground. I now only get $6.5 or $7 as the best CRB offer. I still almost never do those, I can't tell if uber wants to actually pay me for those or not. I never seem to have any after I do a bunch of runs around town at night.

    I had a decent night last night, took a lot of people downtown from the suburbs, and then had a reverse run from downtown to Boulder which was nice at a 1.4x. People from Boulder back into downtown, I had to go back home to sell another car I have, went back out after that, went down to the stadium before the game let out, set a DF for fort collins and got a 1.9x back up to Thornton and called it a night after that since I live close by. I'd rather take a smaller surge out of the stadium before the big rush than have to deal with the gridlock and thousands of people walking everywhere.

    Yep, I miss the $14-16 dollar CRB days. They did not last long. Everything for me is $5-7 now as well. To me that is not worth the crappy rides I get sent sometimes in those scenarios or being able to pick and choose which I will take. I stay to my strategies which nets me much in the long run when the bonuses are that low.

    Yep my personal threshold is 7 bucks anything below that I dont care I turn off after every trip and drive to where I want to be for my next... if they want me to stay online and drive where the wind blows they need to pay me and when they are offering 4 or 5 dollars for 3 rides? LOL ... Uber can blow me!

    Every week, twice a week for the last month Uber has offered me $30 for sending them a Lyft statement. No thanks, make it $50, then maybe I'll be interested

    Made $150 in 5 hours tonight, 120 miles driven. Also had the pleasure of kicking a pax out of my car.

    Picked up a group of 4 very drunk guys from 26th and walnut. They asked me to go through the taco bell drive through and I politely declined and apologetically explained that if my cars not moving I'm not making money. 3 of the 4 drunks were very understanding. Mr. 4 was not. He said, "that's bull****, he's lying!" I politely explained that I make my money based on the per mile rate and I only get paid 10 cents per minute, and that if my car is not moving I spend more on gas idling than I'm making. Mr. 4 again called me a liar. I said I would be happy to drop you off at taco bell, but I'm not waiting in the drive thru.

    Mr. 4 then told his buddies that I worked for them and had to do whatever they said. He proceeded to give me turn by turn directions to taco bell. When the directions to the address in the app differed from his directions he got upset and demanded i take them to taco bell. I asked if I was dropping them off at the address or at taco bell three pax told me the address and mr. 4 said taco bell. I make the turn towards the address and he starts yelling at me and demanding I turn around. Asking "where the f--k are you going?" I said im going to the address in the app. He says, your wrong, turn the f--k around.

    At this point I stop the car and inform them that their ride was over. Mr. 4 is still demanding that I turn around. The pax in the front seat who ordered the ride asks if I'm kicking them out. I said you three may stay, but he (pointing at mr. 4) needs to get the f--k out of my car. The three friends grumble and swear, but exit the vehicle, mr. 4 just sits in the back seat until his friends practically pull him out. After they exit the vehicle mr. 4 is raving about how he's going to one star me and says "I'm going to get you f---ing fired you f---ing &%$@!*." Dude, I know your going to one star me, at this point I don't give a ****. Your going to one star me whether I kick you out of my car or not. So I just said "I know" and drive off.

    Sure enough, i have a shiny new one star rating, and my overall rating did not change at all. And they got to walk or order another uber for the mile they had left on the trip.

    Sorry for the long story, thanks for letting me rant.

    I don't know what the deal is with this weekend but I cannot wait for it to be over LOL it is definitely amateur weekend.

    All said and done, I can't complain about the money but good Lord it's been a ****show the entire weekend! Only worked Lyft tonight. Uber is still rejecting my inspection and won't tell me why:mad: I was out for 5 1/2 hours. Did 8 rides for $245. 4 tipped. 4 NS/CX. Addresses were wrong the entire night. Poor Tim was either a mute or became severely stupified after the consumption of alcohol and very possibly drugs. He is either hating life or he will be. My guess is he'll wake up curled up on someone's front porch or next to the cows. . . somewhere east of Parker. I also had to cancel on a party of 6. They just walk up like nothing and start piling in. Can we not count tonight? 3 Guys and 3 girls. The guys I'm thinking had been in a fight. They all had their shirts off and were pretty wound up:rolleyes: get me out of this Twilight Zone

    Despite it being kinda slow for me...I probably pissed someone off downtown. Oh well it made my day haha.

    They stopped in the traffic lane at a green light so I lay on the horn till he moved. I got the finger and then he cuts across the 4 lanes to go right from the far left. Too bad someone didn’t T-Bone him. Woulda felt bad for the other guy though and I’d probably have to get out and assist. So yeah...don’t do that **** ;)

    Forgot about my favorite quote from last night. Two female pax were taking about an ex-boyfriend.

    Pax 1: he was really a jerk. I only stayed with him so long because the sex was fantastic.
    Pax 2: he couldn't have been that great to put up with his bull****.
    Pax 1: he ripped my sheets.
    Pax 2: literally?
    Pax 1: yes, he literally ripped my bed sheets.
    Pax 2: I didn't know that was possible.
    Pax 1: it is

    I did 260 on 5 hours online tonight, I took an XL to DIA, a bunch of wild and crazy Asian girls in town for a Bachelorette Party from NYC, they were really funny, they had been in town four days and finally went a Dispensary today and of course all ate some Edibles....
    "So, um , we went to a Dispensary, how long until this stuff wears off?" "None of us normally use Marijuana, but it's Legal here, so......... "
    They are probably all passed out on their Red Eye flight back east LMFAO.....
    Also went to Phish, but didn't actually give a ride, I camped out nearby for awhile and got some dude names Robert on a Ping, but Robert was STUPID and insisted I come get him at the Stadium even though the Cops had all the roads blocked... "No, Bro, you can come into the Stadium on Prarie..." I am over on Quebec and 60th, BRO, walk to me please, so we can get the show down the road, lot's of Peeps need rides..."
    "No, Bro, just ask the Cops, they will let you through.... "
    Me, yelling out the window towards the Cops.... "Hey, ROBERT SAYS TO LET ME THROUGH....
    No response from the Cops, but me to Robert, "They said, Who the **** is Robert?"
    I hung up on that D-Bag and went offline and dove down Quebec to those Hotels and ended up with an XL, no more Phish for me!
    I also visited Ft. Collins tonight on a Rematch out of DIA, at least I avoided the lot......

    Last night was like a Saturday night, full of drunks. Had one lady tell her friends about hooking up with the dude she was babysitting for. The couple were swingers so I guess that's ok. Somebody either 4 or 3 starred me when I dropped them off early, and by early I mean 10 feet from the entrance to the TOC. I had accepted a ride and the new passengers were coming in and didn't have enough room to sit as the original passengers ahd three persons. The other lady said "you've already accepted a ride." I five starred her anyway, but the next time someone makes any sort of comment like that I'm three starring them at least. My fear is unnecessarily 3 starring someone and they return the favor.

    **** show, but decent money. 150 over 5 hours or so, not including a few dollars from referral runs.
