    In Chicago, there is a lot of demand for rides, so I try to avoid waiting too long to get a fare, especially if it is a low surge. I usually hit the “I have arrived” when I am 1 min away, and that seems to do well, but I’m still finding people making me wait for 3-5 mins. I grew impatient...

    Hi, I’m new to Uber and I’m doing this full time as I transition to a new job. I’ve just started my third day and in three 10 hour days I’ve made a total of 40/hr here in Houston.

    I have been driving for 2.5 years now and deal with anxiety a lot and just freeze up and nothing good ever comes to mind. What can I say to get a conversation going again? I used to be good at it but my self esteem is so shot these days I've just been driving in silence and it's starting to...
