    I know a lot of you guys will think I'm in the wrong for doing this, but I actually make money with this method. It works very well for short rides where I can jump to the next person and keep doing short rides. I have noticed that when I offer them Red Bull drinks, candy, gum and chargers in a holder that is mounted to rear of front passenger seat--I make almost triple the tips and during the last week I have consistently seen my tips beat my Lyft fees. The more people I take the more they are likely to tip me $5 or more and a lot of the. I shop at Sam's Club so I get all the treats I need in cheap bulk quantity. It is as if I am reselling this stuff for profit. Something that costs me .25cents or even a dollar to get will end up getting me a $5 and $10 tip that I would not have received otherwise. I'm referring to Lyft btw.

    Cool Ozzy. Whatever works.

    The most I do is cough drops. Just signed on with Uber and they gave me 40 or 50 bottles of water. Will see how that goes.

    Just a side note. But man! Uber's app is so much better than Lyfts. Shocked me.

    That thing would be empty in about a half hour in LA, with $0 tips.

    After 2 hours it would be full of trash.

    After 4 hours, someone would puke in it.

    After 6 hours, someone would steal it, puke and all.

    I can pick up a slab of 8oz water bottles for around 8 cents each. Winds up costing me about $8.50 per month and even though most don't take one they do draw the eye across the card reader I have set up for tipping. No signs, just the gentle reminder that its an option. Im currently prototyping a better way to mount them together so that I can backlight the bottles at night

    I really like your thinking OzzMan!

    May I ask where you got the seat hanger, thing? Looks perfect.

    Thanks Mon and Uber on!
