So ive seen postings on facebook of drivers in our area making less then 3 bucks Did they lower the rates in the last month ?
I don’t reckon. Hasn’t happened to me, but I have seen those. I’m guessing they’re from Elon. I heard it through the grapevine those are the rates out there.

I thought you worked at support, wouldn’t you know that sorta thing? :wink:. Hey, I love your discreet profile btw!! That’s actually pretty smart. A lot of newbies in that group need some schooling.

Yeah I am in Elon 2.25 min ride really sucks. With surge multiplier it was great. Not good with new rate.

Not me, cars still in the shop for another week, 8 days no uber, the shakes have stopped! Kind of feels good but I know I'm going to need to pay the repair bill.

I actually checked and there was nothing in the area. I was on the highway in the middle of nowhere, didn't want to pay for lots of mileage on the tow, so I went with a reputable small garage.

By the way, I got a free tow but anything over 12 miles would have cost me $4 a mile. We are in the wrong business!

My uber last ride was in March - right as the flat surge started.

And though I really ought to add to my regular income, I just can't seem to find any motivation to go online.

You should do df's when you are driving around on errands, pick up the occasional trip and tax deductible miles.
I have done that - I don't seem to get requests worth taking when I do. Even the weeks I was driving during rush hour between Raleigh and Chapel Hill each day to visit with my kiddo (IMO, 4pm-7pm is the WORST time to set as the hospital visiting hours) - I wasn't getting many pings and the ones I got were just too far to go pick up. I would have better luck if I did X rides, but I can't bring myself to do that.

I do need to find some motivation to do some type of side work - those hospital bills are not just going to disappear, no matter how much I wish they would. And my ex certainly isn't going to contribute. I'm just so tired of working multiple jobs - it shouldn't be this hard to make ends meet. Oh well - looks like it's 'time to make the donuts' yet again.
