I was out there at 6am by 7:30am I went home too many drivers an no pings. Missed out on 4am surge:(. I'm sure it will surge later but nothing too spectacular.

On the bright side I'm going to fire up the grill make some Carne Asda and got some italian beef going already. Rest up guys there's always tomorrow.

*Fantasy scenerio

All Drivers take a day off!
* the rest I leave it up to your imaginations:D
Not much would change. Those that can afford it will put up with a dirty cab. The ones that can't will start talking to their annoying friends that don't mind picking them up. Lazy ****ers will finally walk around the block to buy their diet coke, but in the bigger scheme of things life will go on.

My fellow driver buds...

It's beginning to feel a bit challenging to maintain our steady extra cash come in like it use to, but let's be smart about hanging in there...

Think about it...
If life were easy, it would probably be boring.

So for the few of us that can still make it work n will stick around, I congratulate you and raise my glass up in the air, cheers..

Let's step up OUR game, keep earning how WE do it n show em how none of this still don't faze us.

Yeyuh..

Happy Labor Day Y'all

'I made 50 in l hour.I dont chase it if Pings then I go...
yeah.... love statements like these. Before or after uber's cut? Before or after gas? Before or after depreciation? Did you count dead miles and time returning home, or did you get another ping after drop-off?

I don't count depreciation because I'd own my car whether or not I use it to make extra money. If you had a different occupation, would you not own a car? If you live in an area where you can do 100% of your commuting on public transportation, more power to you I guess. I prefer to own a car, and if I choose to have my car pay for itself, so much the better. I don't plan on getting rid of my car until it's paid for and long out of warranty.

You have a point regarding whether those earnings are before or after Uber's cut.

It's difficult to account for how much gas you're using when you actually have a pax in the car only on the fly, buy maybe you are using the trip odometer on every ride and resetting your fuel economy gauge as well. I don't have time for that, personally.

Your app should be off if you're moving with no pax in the car, unless it's a short time while looking for a spot to park and turn the car off while waiting for a ping.

It's like you're searching for reasons to be depressed and to say that doing Uber is the worst possible way to make money.
