I do not understand you in the slightest.

You seem to be accusing me of something, but I have no idea what it is.
OK, I’ll spell it out for you, I have seen you many times twist peoples words and then ask nonsense questions based on how you twisted the words.
I was merely trying to make you see how it feels when people like you do this to others. However it seems to have flown over your head.

carry-on

Flown over my head? No, I just think you're cranky from losing an argument.

So I know I have a reputation on this site with a few of the members but I really see them as the type that don't want to see reality for what it is and anybody that challenges their false sense of reality is the problem and not them. .. so with that said I want to know is it the heat is it just the overall morale of the country or am I really losing it but do it seem like people are more confrontational and really bending over backwards to cause conflict where other people nowadays...
They finally figuring out that America is NO Longer the PROMISED LAND. And are only one pay check away from being homeless.

It use to be Los Angeles, the streets of Broken Dreams, Now it is all across the country.

Remember the Big Corporations moved all the good manufacturing jobs to China. A war will bring them all back and will take many years to build them. Prehaps all those illegals crossing the border may one day be a big player in all that.

I just read that most Americans making over $100,000 a year or living check to check I myself had a substantial amount of money saved up but I recently checked my accounts and my savings are dwindling fast this gig economy stuff it's like a real business and your main expense which is gas nearly doubles in one year you're going to really feel that pinch

I had one of those jobs. Fortunetly India bought 20 more C-17's so that set me up for retirement. What does the Pension pay ? About 33,000 a year which bearly covers all the bills. Now that the A/C is running, not gona happen.

Tip ! That was learned back in the day when High Schools still had Drivers education,... Always leave yourself an out. Understand ? Granted it can be hard to do at times.

Yeah I definitely got an exit plan actually went out and got a semi real job at least a job where you don't have to pay to work I'm going to stand by worker at Pepsi I can go in there and work when I want to but I'm still an independent contractor but unlike Uber and it don't cost me $50 to $100 a day to go do that gig

I posted an example about a week ago of how about three or four workers at the grocery store decided they was going to charge me for a meat lover Pizza when I blatantly had a cheese pizza and they wouldn't come off it until I lost my cool and almost caught a charge.. 20 minutes of them antagonizing me and it wasn't until I reacted that I was deemed the bad guy and the aggressor...
Well fast forward to today I wake up wanting to have the most positive productive day that I could.. I'll pick up a passenger from the airport take them to downtown and I end up getting a trip from downtown back to the airport had a decent conversation with a decent young lady I drop her off just in time to see a pickup truck double parked beside me blocking me in when they could have easily just gave me a few feet and let me out and keep in mind I have an important doctor appointment that I'm cutting it close for and I was planning on leaving the airport and driving a 2 hours to the doctor appointment with maybe 15 minutes to spare.. but now I'm blocked in unnecessarily
so I sit there for a few minutes trying to be patient ..the guy slowly unloading his wife and sons luggage hugging them he's talking to them now 10 minutes has went by and he's looking at me blocked in and I'm trying to maneuver to see if maybe I can squeeze out of there but it was no way I could do it and they're all just looking at the situation and I'm trying to stay cool then I finally roll down my window and say "sir can you please back up just a little to let me out cuz you have me blocked in" he proceeds to tell me that wasn't his problem and I will have to figure it out on my own and once again before I know it I was in psycho mode dropping all kinds of f bombs.. and he started dropping f bombs and pointing his fingers and we're just having a very disorderly interaction here at the airport terminal... And I can tell by his bumper stickers he was a ultra conservative who more than likely was packing a big pistol which maybe fueled his insistence on starting trouble with me...
But I'm starting to wonder is it me or is it them.. cuz I consider myself a nice guy but as everybody know people that go out of their way to avoid trouble are the last ones you want to start trouble with cuz when they get mad they are really mad and I'm that type...ok rant over😤✌... By the way at that time my thermostat was reading 109.. not smart to antagonize people when it's 109° View attachment 670609
Yuk clean car.

While I admit that I haven’t read all of the responses to your post, and someone else may very well have mentioned this, but how much of the total interaction with this guy along with your frustration and anger could have been avoided if you hadn’t tried to grab a couple of rides before having to drive 2 hours (!!) to your doctor’s appointment? (Why I the world would anyone drive 2 hours for a doc appointment, unless it’s a specialist or something, which it may very well be, but even still - 2 hours…UGH!) Maybe if you would have taken into consideration the drive time to your appointment and not wanting to be late, you could have gotten some others things done around the house and left in plenty time to get there instead of trying to cram a couple of airport rides in, knowing you were going to be pressed for time. Your anxiety over being late for your appointment just escalated the situation with the guy in the truck.

Not that he has it, Cancer treatments ? Some fly out of the country for stuff. Others drive across the border to get medication cheaper. How many drove across to get Ivermectin ? Which may have been confiscated coming back that we don't know of.

Smh...for one I had to have a very serious surgery...in two days it's was my pre surgery appointment

Second I had to pay nearly 10k out of pocket for the surgery....and knowing all the days I would miss from appointments to the actual surgery to recovery and follow up appointments of course I'm gonna get all I can get lead up to the surgery

I live in a upscale rich city....so I saved 10 k by going to a smaller less rich city to have the surgery ...and the most doctors were afraid to do the procedure because it was close to.my heart...this doctor was the only one willing to do it..

I left plenty of time to get to the appointment...but I wanted to run a few errands before leaving town...which by my calculations I had time to run my errands and then drive out of town with 15 to 30 minutes to spare.... And then come you guys hero blocking me in and I stayed cool because I figured it's going to be a quick drop off but then he unloaded his family luggage stood out there at the tail of his truck talking to his family hugging his family talking more..hugging more...looking in my eyes like "that's right screw you" and I still stayed calm....it wasnt until I see hes walking with them inside the air port...that i politely say "can you let me out you have me blocked in"...that when he tell me "not my problem you got to figure it out" that things rightfully went left...for those who say security would have let him park that long at rdu you can park at the terminal for up to 30 mins...some people stay there for hours ... especially cabs...he had every intention to sit there as long as possible

Look I know it don't take much culture common sense wisdom or anything in between to be a rideshare driver..so I know asking questions here I'm bound to get a wide range of weird responses...and very few logical responses...so your answer is it all my fault for existing...if I never existed he couldnt have blocked me in huh ..🤣🤣🤣 ok thx for the "advice"👍

Pretty funny a far majority of people on this thread keep saying it's you and somehow they are the problem.
Ok you got it...it's me...gotcha...now go live your life✌
I wonder do you teach your kids to base their self worth off the opinion of Uber drivers on the internet🤣🤣🤣 you are so silly
