    So I was 17 points from Platinum Status this morning, so I turned the UBER App on after noon, looking to get 6 short rides at 3 points a piece -- to lock in Platinum until the end of January 2021. Got a couple short rides while I did my Sunday errands. Eventually, I got a ride to Pearson...

    Lady sends back food delivered to her as prank. She said some guys would send her UBEReats in the middle of the night as a prank. Apparently this happens often to her. She tipped me $25 to return the food to the guy who ordered it for her. So I sent her this. Best customer interaction by far.

    Once upon a time there was a young woman who believed in fairy tales named Alice. She had read a whopper of a tale, something about how the average Uber driver in NYC makes $90,000 per year, and how easy and fun it was to make "great money" during her free time. She doesn't live in NYC, but her...

    I don't respond well to bullies - in that I don't let them bully me I tend to extract myself from the situation. Tonight, I was taken aback by the sheer rudeness of a shopkeeper I was taking TWO deliveries from. I've been there for deliveries before and he seemed okay - I was alway polite and...

    Okay... So I set out this morning after watching the Rider App for awhile and seeing for over an hour that there were consistently 7 or 8 Select drivers within just a few miles of my location. I thought "well, this is my first day, so I'll just head out and see what happens". I needed to fuel...

    First ride last night was a pick-up at a Starbucks. "J" comes running in the rain with two drinks in her hand (both with lids) and as she gets in says, "This is a hot chocolate for you. Figured you'd like something on a rainy night." Almost restored my faith in humanity. Near the end of the...

    I picked up a passenger at one of those pool bars where bad music and cigarette smoke billow out the front door every time it opens. I spotted my passenger right away; he reminded me of a cross between Barney Gumble from The Simpsons and Humpty Dumpty. He was standing in the middle of the...
