Weekend started off bad with my 3rd trip being and Uber Scammer. I'll post more about that in Uber Eats.
Had more cancels this past weekend than I have had so far this year.
First cancel, Friday Night, this guy was way to drunk to be getting in my car. Here is a series of screen shots from my dash cam. Easy pass, he actually fell again when he got past my front bumper giving me room to drive off. Luckily he fell away from my car.
Two more cancels Friday night where PAX texted me just before the 5 minutes was up that they were on the way. I was not in the mood to pick up people that made me wait. Waited out timer and drove off with cancel fee. Ended up calling it a night out of frustration and headed home.
Saturday started out okay. Friday's Uber Eats episode still lingering I opted not to turn eats on the rest of the weekend. Soon the cancels started rolling in. 6 for the day, 3 PAX cancelled as I arrived at pick-up point, 2 I cancelled for No Show. The final cancel was this little peach. Hard to see her in the picture, boy friend is leaning over her as she is puking out her guts. Good Bye, let someone else deal with that.
Last trip Saturday night, pick-up at a wedding property and take a couple to their resort. They were discussing that they need to leave at 8:00 AM to get to the airport on time. Non eventful 3 mile trip. I head toward my next pick-up and see flashing lights in my mirror for a brief second. Than nothing. Get to my pick-up and the guy gets in and says hey someone left their phone. Damn, bet that was the flashing light I saw. Drop them off pretty close to resort I dropped last couple off at. Select found item option and previous trip. Used call PAX option and sure enough it was his phone as it started ringing. Went by their cottage at the resort and knocked on door. No answer. Oh well, left a note on their door to contact Uber. Turned phone off and put it in an electronics bag so they could not track it to my house.
Get up early Sunday looking for an airport trip or two. Get a ping that just looks funny, no addresses that I recognize. I accept and start to get ready to walk out the door. I get a text message saying please call me. I call PAX and he tells me where he is at. He wants me to come pick him up some 40 miles away an take him to Aventura some 120 miles away. He proceeds to tell me the app keeps telling him no drivers available where he is at so he kept randomly putting in trips. I tell him I can't drive 40 miles un paid for a trip that will take me 80 miles from where I live. He says tell me what address to put in that is close to where I am at and he will put in a multi stop trip to come get him, take him to Aventura and he will take care of my return miles. A couple of minutes later I get pick-up updated so I continue out the door. Trip started 1 minute from my house, to 40 miles south for first stop.
I was passing the resort from PAX that left phone in my car so I stopped and knocked on door again. I also had already turned the phone back on to see if they would try and call it. My note was still there, and I knew they were planning on leaving in about an hour and I would be on a long trip and not able to return the phone. No answer. Oh well, off I go to pick-up my PAX. About 10 minutes away from my pick-up the left phone rings. I answer it and pretty much tell the guy he is out of luck as I was on a long trip. Told him I would ask my PAX I was picking up if they minded if I stopped to drop the phone off. Told him to call back in 15 minutes.
Get to the stop and a guy comes out and says he needs a few minutes and says thanks for going out of your way and slips me some cash. I ask him if he was okay with me dropping of the phone, he was sure that is fine. I look at the cash he hands me, a very, very, generous tip. As I'm waiting at his Ocean front house I notice the multiple high end cars, couple of antique jeeps, 2 sizeable boats, 6 wave runners, and two crotch rockets. Man this guy is not hurting for cash at all. A few minutes later he comes out with a piece of eye candy in a tight little dress. Some back and forth conversation and he gives her an envelope. Does not take long to figure out he is a pay to play type guy. Lady gets in my car and has a very quite voice with a unique accent. He is staying, she is going with me, he thanks me again. She makes a phone call and I realize she is speaking Russian. Next thing I know she is laying down in my back seat.
Other guys phone rings, and I arrange for him to be standing on the side of the road so I can just pull over and hand him the phone. 30 minutes later I get to point he is standing there and I hand him the phone and he hands me $60. He looks at my PAX in the back seat, gets a shocked look and then laughs. I look back and her dress has rode up and her ass is just hanging out. Yep, you guessed it, no panties. She is sound a sleep.
Here is a not so revealing picture after she rolled over and kind of fixed herself. Ended up dropping her off outside Trump International Beach Resort where her ,I'm guessing, pimp was standing outside a Cadillac Escalade waiting for her.
Couple more no show cancels Sunday, and no more adventurous pick-ups.
