You publicly announce where you think it is going to be busy.
You encourage other drivers to come to where you make money. Then you complain when there are too many cars and you don't make money.

You people should really keep that information to yourselves. It's not common knowledge in the same way that most drivers have no common sense. Don't encourage the newbies to go to the places where you make money.

Dont be so selfish and greedy.

Its about time we invite new drivers to the best locations. Newark and Elizabeth Seaport.

There are very FEW places that are good and remain hidden. Nowadays there are ants EVERYWHERE.
Just open the app and check around you, they are everywhere!!!!
I wish uber will close the market for any new drivers.
And that's why we don't need one more. That one person that some idiot on this message board encouraged to come to a certain area took that ride that you were supposed to get, that would have made your night.
No, we don't need one more to take a non surge ride when it is about to surge and delaying the surge.
Do you want more drivers where you work? I sure as hell don't.

If one reads between the lines on your postings, one might assume that you are a seasoned veteran and that you 'know the ropes'. I have classified you as one of the top 3 savvy drivers on this forum.

Not so long ago you lamented about getting stiffed by a waiter that worked at xyz restaurant in town abc. You have also stated that you work a small geographic area.

If l was a new driver anonymously lurking here, the following would cross my mind after reading your posting about the steakhouse:

1. This guy has been doing this gig for several years, longer than most. He must know what he is doing.

2. Waitors shifts usually end late night on big tip days.

3. If this seasoned veteran is in the area of xyz steakhouse on this night, maybe l should be too.

Do you think that your posting about this incident potentially lured drivers to the area? If l lived in your geographic area instead of North Jersey, you could bet the farm that l would be targeting the area after reading about a seasoned veteran working that area.

Yes, you are absolutely correct.
I should definitely not have spelled out the town and very rarely do.
I will not be making that mistake again.
It's not like it's a honey hole, it's just an area close to home where I am a lot. But I sure don't need any more drivers there. I spend a lot of time sitting and waiting to get a ride as it is.
I think the other drivers who work that area would most likely agree.

As you are speaking and I am reading this missive, I sat home this weekend lamenting this very fact. My big friggin mouth and always prattling on about Deal and Deal Casino has virtually picked my pockets clean - not even lint left. I saw more friggin Lyft Amps on Ocean Avenue this weekend it brought tears to my eyes. And I got no one to blame but myself. Last year it was Normandy Road, and I killed that honey hole as well, by talking about it here to my fellow drivers. I guess my only recourse is to join the oblivious ants in Ded Bank, where there are 100 cars for each rider, or go to AP and watch the endless stream of ants marching up and down Cookman with their light up Goober and Lyft signs. What have I done to myself???

To add another one of your peeves would be people bragging about how much they made. I think it's because they have nothing else good in their life going on. I think advertising high pay will get the gawkers online here off the couch and to onboard onto the platform.
I am going to try and be cognizant to not add to the ant prob

They have to get to the places that you recommend and then they spread out. There's already plenty of cars. I'm just saying that we don't need one more.
If I'm hanging out with my buddies and one of them gets a really good ride then I'm happy for them. I would have liked to have gotten it but at least one of my friends got it.
Invite more newbies and they are the ones who will get it when you didn't get it.
And how is it in our best interest if new drivers become successful at this and stick around.
We are better off if they become discouraged and quit.

It must be the Asian prostitutes being smuggled in requesting rides from the shipping containers.
Stop telling my secret. Are you forgetting about all the "Happy Endings" that come with these rides....

i didn't spill the beans about princeton directly. i bumped your old post from last year about a different topic semi related to princeton
a lot of the ants not on this site went down the shore again, we knew it would be slow
a lot of the ants took their long trip to nyc from princeton, then quit and didn't come back for more.
