Given the fact that I overslept and started 3 hours later than I normally would and finished an hour earlier than normal as my last far took me near to home - far enough from the work that it wasn't worth driving back empty, I had a normal enough night - $248 in a hair over 7 hours. Normally I'd consider anything under $400 to be a poor Saturday night, but I'd normally be driving for 12 hours too.

Edit: only just realised you guys were talking about Saturday day, not night. Must be bed time.

Had a $100 fare from adderly street West melbourne to the casino.

Was There to pick up a group of 10 from the show at festival hall, but thru were waiting for stragglers .
In the meantime a representative of another group offered me $100 to take them to the casino, i mentioned to those with the first group that this 2nd lot were offering $100 to the casino, and seeing their lot weren't ready anyhow and i'd be back in 5 minutes they were sweet with me taking them.

Tattooed Chinese , so triads i presumed, I didn't push for the 100 just chucked the meter on to see what would happen, halfway down Spencer street got passed the 2x$50 notes..

Good as their word.

$28 on the meter btw..

Mugs over here took 3 ladies last night, from the inner suburbs to Narre Warren on 1.8 surge.I made $106.But it took me nearly an hour to get there.If given the option, i would have taken your Chinese triads, just for the time factor.

At least is a freeway run, and 1.8.

The triads were totally cool btw, asked for me number for next time.

Probably just a case of the alpha male proving to submissive females in the pack that he could get anything anytime.. including the only maxicab among hundreds of people..

Freeway run?That Monash does your head in. Speed limits fluctuate between 40 and 100 kilometres.Gets very confusing.

There only 2 or 3 places, fixed cameras, you've got to worry, otherwise just follow the fastest car.

(Full disclosure, I've done 8 points already, 4 to go)

I have no idea where they are.I don't speed.But last night was dark, gloomy, and windy, on the Monash freeway.Visibility not the best, especially if your short sighted.
