    So happy I quit uber a while back, but I got a wonderful text from uber. They are really trying to saturate the market.

    There is definitely oversaturation in most markets but I think there is a second aspect in addition to having an Uber on every corner, which doesn't cost them anything (except in the long run).

    Referring a friend is also signing up your replacement many a time. Like the ill-equipped Russian soldiers at Stalingrad, when one comrade goes down, pick up his gun and take over. The average burnout time for driving was found to be like 3 or 6 months (I forget). It would be interesting to see the numbers of new sign ups versus those that essentially quit and go inactive. We'll probably never be privy to that information though.

    I'm curious if they use these tactics in other countries?
