Have you ever stopped mid-fare? I barely made it to the gas station after dropping them off. My eyes were yellow.

Just be careful of your local dumpster diver. You really don't want to piss them off, or is it don't want to piss off on them?In eme
In Emergency,loading docks,alleys,behind dumpsters,in dumpster enclosure,between 18 wheeler trailer and a wall may serve in a bind.
If I really have to go and see an opportunity after accepting a trip, I take it. Pax won't notice the delay...just a long traffic signal or something to them.How long of a trip ?
On occasion,I have accepted a "ping"
While pumping gas,or on a bathroom break( meals get tucked under seat)
Once in a while,I may make a brief stop after acceptance ( before passenger pickup). 5 gal. Of gas or quick bathroom stop.
If trip were over 20 miles , I would announce a brief relief stop. Bathroom,drinks,cigarette for pax etc. Or offer the brief stop if I did not need for myself.
It's $35.00 to park at many hotels.Hotels and hospitals are always open, and have conveniently located restrooms; hotels usually have them near the main lobby, and hospitals have them in the ER waiting room.
WOW! That's very different than here in NJ, although it IS very much like NYC. Every hotel I've encountered in my travels has abundant free parking, and I've never had a problem using the men's room in a hospital ER.It's $35.00 to park at many hotels.
( then your vehicle may end up blocks away in a parking garage)
Hospital won't allow you in emergency unless you are patient,or family.
Hats off to you for that skill! I could not do it while driving.One time at my regular job, we were driving group of Class A vehicles from Ontario, CA to Santa Barbara. We had already stopped for a bathroom break, but I had to pee again. I wasn't going to make it to our destination, and the boss said we weren't going to stop again. There were two Gatorade bottles in the cab. I half-stood while going 55 in a 15-ton truck on the 101 and filled both of them up, brimming. It was amazing.
