Pro: that feeling when you get a ping. I have to admit there’s nothing like it. It’s very addicting LOL


Con: when you pull out after accepting the ride and the pax cancels. hahaha

Pro: seeing parts of NJ you would have never seen without Uber

I was in West Orange (?) yesterday. Really nice neighborhood.

Con: when you need to piss and it pings. hahaha

Pros: finding out pax has to go somewhere far (big $)

Finding a fare from NJ to NYC. Free visit to see girlfriend without paying for toll!

Cons: getting a ping from 20+ minutes
away.

Seeing an Indian immigrant sounding name for pax. Most definitely a non tipper and probably demanding as well.

Cancel that one! More than 50% of the time you will not regret it.

May be the case in Florida, not so much in Jersey.
Unless you end up in NYC or New York State. I ended up in Rye the other day, luckily I don't live too far from the tappan zee.

I've also ended up in parts of central jersey and can't find a fare back (or at all). And I've personally had bad luck after airport drops and couldn't get anything but some local crap rides in elizabeth.

So I think it definitely applies to NJ since we get shafted so much on state crossings.

Just thought of another pro: having other drivers about 20 minutes away in each direction so that the likelihood of getting a long distance ping is low
