There seem to be a lot of complaints here on this forum. I just wanted to share my day today.

I wasn't planning on driving because I was scheduled to work my other job (server). My boss sent me home during the lunch shift because it was slow. I marched right out of there and said you know what - I'm gonna turn on the Uber app.

That is exactly what I did. I drove the downtown lunch hour from 12-2 and made over $20 just like that. Very busy with office workers using Uber to go to lunch and back.

After that, I went to Top Golf. It was almost like I was hitting free balls with the extra money I made!

Now that's what I call making the system work for me :)

This is almost identical to my story!

Except in mine, the $20 went towards the $110 new tire after debris in the street punctured my sidewall... oh, pax rated me a 1 for delayed/incomplete trip, left their half full Starbucks cup on its side spilled on my carpet, and while I didn't get to hit any free golf balls... the sensation I had was close -- like getting hit in the balls.

Uber-unicorns Sweetpea!

Wow Poopy. That's sounds terrible. I hope you get some nice rides in to make up for all of that.

Blood would upset me too, but the other fluids are just occupational hazards we all have to deal with at some point.
Stay positive guys.

Thanks for the encouraging words.

Actually the vomit incident could have been worse. A lot of it splashed off of me and onto the 3 Uber-Eats meals I was delivering that were on my passenger seat. Since the puke was clear and not chunky, it dried with no visible residue.

The one customer did ask what the weird smell was. I told him I don't eat Chinese food, so I don't know.

He smiled and said "5 for 5".
I wasn't sure what that meant, so later I reported 'serious concern with customer' on the app. It kinda sounded like he was sexually hitting on me.

Still waiting on the reply from Uber.

I know it's hard to stay positive with vomit in your car but you have to. Remember, you are the owner of your own business and your own boss. Take charge of your success.
Thanks for the signature line. Brilliant.

Wait this my own business?!?!?
Holy crap I need to change the fare rates, educate my customers on app use, add a tip button, add a destination filter, request distance limit filter, add return tolls for trips under $15. There's more but I gotta get on those ASAP because those things will increase the profit margin of MY business and help me deliver a higher level of service.
