What's happening?

Been slow for a lot of people this month; figured I'd emerge from lurk mode and spend a bit of time sharing and learning. Even the best of us can benefit from a morale boost at times.

Yes, the thread title was inspired by reddit, one of my favorite sites.

Ask me anything. :)

Best Place to score good dope is in the Valley.
Best Place to post up for Select is the Grove
Best Place to post up for X is Santa Monica
Best Place to post up for Pool is Palmdale
Best Place to get a hooker is on Western near Wilshire between 3am to 5am
Best Place for XL is LAX so u can wait till 2.5 surge occurs then switch to X rides in the app to queue jump.
Best Place to Sit in a 3x surge area and not receive any pings all night is La Canada/Flintridge area

Hope my advice benefits you.

Cheers

Nice weekend.

Better than my weekend. I could have done better, but instead of working Sat night, I got lazy and caught up on sleep.

How did you do for the week?

I was doing bad for the week...
Monday was good...Tues, wed, thurs was waste of time...So just kinda evened out...
Not good enough...But not the worst :/
What I do in the weekdays is go to the companies I know provide free select or black services for their employees...this is my hint ..
What sucks is it seems uber n lyft doesnt want to match u with same pax after couple of times...other than that for us select drivers...this is the best waay to get pings on weekdays...just need to be there when they end...So far I have 8 companies that provide free uber to their employees...only select n black

I made $1,558 that week; could have been $1,600+ if I hadn't slept through Sat night.

Within the past 2 weeks, I've been matched with one of my neighbors on 4 different occasions on Select; not my only example either. You should be fine.

Do u drive in La or OC?

Do u drive in La or OC?
I have had pax get in my car...we try getting each other...to no avail...after wasting about 20 mins n cancelling more than 20 req...we gave up

What's been working for me is...
Mr Ives...said it in a thread sometime last year...why not try to talk to the pax n see if they will be using uber again and if they r getting a ride bk why not try to get them again...instead of waiting for another ping or deadmiling it...
This has been very useful to me n helped me get over my select hump...even ysday...I picked up a mom n daughter from westho...took them to woodland hills...n they said they will be going to lax...long story short I ended up taking them to lax too... tipped $15 in app... n $50 cash at lax...
