Hello...new driver in the Tampa area. I'm 44, and drive a 2016 Audi S4. I do this as a hobby, as I get bored on the nights my wife works, and I'm off from work. I do it to meet people, and have conversations. I'm a retired Lt.Col for the Air Force and was a leader for 22 years in Military...so, for me, it's all about the people. so far, I've had good experiences. I have "hot towels" for my customers, Fiji and Perrier Water bottles, mints, gum, chargers, ipad for use and even essentials like toothbrushes for those that forgot those on the way to the airport. I've had good luck and good response in the 20 trips thusfar. I love that there is a community for uber drivers!

Thank you.

Marvin

Welcome Marvin.
All those things you provide are crazy for such an inexpensive ride.

But if you're doing it because you're bored and obviously not for the money, have at it.

You're right...and, for me, it's really about having fun...meeting people, and watching their delight when things are unexpected. I may go this another week, or another month...who knows really. It's fun. I can just turn it on whenever I want, and shut it off, whenever I want.

Thank you...and I purposely misspelled my last name :-)
