100... Impossible. ... I have 2.5 years experience with the bar scene. You might get $150 from the 3 best hours of the whole week. Some weekends, there are too many drivers for more than 5 surge rides. I would say $300 from the 12 best hours. 2 years ago $120 from 12-3am could happen but never $500.

This freak must be why the riders think I make $100 an hour.

You certainly know better than I do. I don't like drunk college kids, and am always afraid of someone puking, so I don't get over there too often. I have had some really lucrative, very short rides though, all before February, 2016.

Exactly. There are always idiots out there talking about "how much money they make". And this leads to fewer tips and more drivers on the road. I met a guy who told me he was making $350- $400 a day working 6am - 3 pm on X in Atlanta. I just rolled my eyes.

My biggest fear is forgetting I am not with family, and then farting.

My second biggest fear is to start singing along with a song on the radio, but with my personal lyrics, that some may not appreciate.

Just got a $10 tip from an older gentleman. I quoted the app word for word for him regarding tips. I am sure he will be scolded severally by the 2 young people that rode with us. Too bad so many demand living by hearsay instead of the reality of Uber's tip policy that is stated in the app.

Impossible. I am moving to an area close to Athens so I began driving out there the past few months on weekends. I average close to 40 trips in 9-10 hours. They are all short minimum are trips and when the surge starts you make up some ground but no way $1k. My best 3 nights combined is around $400 before expenses.
