Just read up on the terms sitting on my toilet. Only time Ill give these POS's of my time. Last time I did one of these deliveries they paid on each delivery as well as applicale streaks completed in that time. Well over a 100 bucks. Policy changed that I wasnt aware of so I consider it a hard lesson learned. Its disheartening just how much both companies are squeezing drivers. Im gonna stop by that building again an talk too a couple of OP's an drivers. I cant beleive anyone would deliver for that amount.
That really paints a good 'before' and 'after' (bad news) difference. Guess they're just hoping to find enough Ants.

Thanks for the Heads Up!
Ride offers that look too good to be true can also have multiple stops, The # of stops and total distance isn't included in the initial offer for Uber. You have to go into rider details to see all the stops which now I do for every ride just in case. Lessons learned by getting burnt once. We've all learned that the reject and cancel buttons are our friends.
Yesterday I got a lesson in Popular Mechanics. I had to disassemble a scooter into three pieces and put it in the back and then re-assemble the dang thing when we completed the trip which also included one stop to pick up a prescription. While I did feel sorry for the gal I wouldn't do that again. Only saving grace was it was to be my last trip before my meal break so I let it ride.

Few weeks ago I accepted a trip that included a stop at In-N-Out Burger and Pax commented his appreciation since the 1st three drivers had canceled. That's when a light went on that there was something I didn't yet know how to do - but I'm on it now. Fortunately for me, the surge was high enough when I got it that it wasn't a bad trip. As an X driver a quick stop doesn't much bother me though it doesn't make me smile either.

I hear yah!
In-N-Out is poorly named. I would only consider waiting for a $10 cash tip if it is a slow point or the day. Otherwise, I drop them off and end the ride.
I didn't see that it was a 2-stopper and only saw the last stop. I'm still figuring out a few things. :)

As 'backstreets' stated "if it seems to good to be true" but given the very nice surge and medium trip I still did OK. But no, I don't do fast food stops normally.
$3.59 a gallon on McClintok and McKellips.

As far as where gas prices go, a little more care in not getting the Saudis upset would help some in helping the price go down.
Okay, I'm jealous but just a little bit as today's price was $3.74.

I had a pax going to JW Marriott at Desert Ridge for my last ride of the day. He begged me to stop at In-N-Out on Tatum. What seemed like 20 minutes later, he came out apologizing profusely with his order to go and a free cheeseburger for me. He later tipped $20 in the app. Funny part was that Gruber contacted him while he was waiting inside because we were not moving. I didn't know they did that.
Okay, I'm jealous. Some time ago did the same trip but I only got a $10 tip. Didn't actually wait that long though.
