I've 3 bachelor's degrees and can't get a job worth working. Poor decision on the first (biology ) bad timing on the 2nd (accounting in August 2008) and for some reason nursing jobs are hard to get using my 3rd. The only thing I can find is part time home health for $16 an hour. At least with uber I can go to interviews if I ever actually get one, travel, and pay my bills. Although, if I was making $8.50 an hour I'd just go to a restaurant. Waitresses here make far more
This dude young..I'm young too and around his age. As y'all know I was happy af making 8.50 or what ever it was..living free enjoying ******* and a blunt in the morning while cooking waffles. shit wasn't fun when I couldn't pay the bills anymore. 8.50 was looking hella small when my baby mamma come wantin money from my ass
I drive for uber for the tax break. Success comes from good decisions. Good decisions come from experience. Experience comes from bad decisions. Avoiding debt and living on less than one makes is far wiser than living on 99% of a higher income but it all goes out in interest payments and taxes. Lol, at college = skills. Meeting pax can teach lots of skills. Decision making on making Uber profitable can teach skills. 100,000 business miles = $57,000 of income tax free earnings. That is a valuable piece of information to learn. Accomplishing that with a paid for $8,000 car verses a $25,000 car with a payment book is a valuable piece of information.
I am not saying college is for no one or everyone. I am not saying Uber is for no one or everyone. I am certainly not predicting what this young man makes of his life. I will not say he has no options. Think, do, get. All things being equal, (and they never are) self control is the number one factor in destiny.
Oh gotcha ya..your right it does say that. So basically after dropping out do to health issues and trying to find a job he had to settle for something like uber and it pays so little he has to get help to pay his bills. Funny you don't here uber promote these stories lol
