I don't know if Im just being totally unlucky but all of my sessions this week but one has been really slow. Hope to get in thirty hours this weekend but if slow will be tough.

Forum is dead too, what is everyone doing, at the summer vacation houses having fun?

7 days off for me so far, peeked at the app a bit last night saw some prime time. Also saw tons of cars both apps, and both X and XL platforms. I had a good run for 3 weeks wonder if it is slower out there with summer and those major events passed.
I have to be in a mood to go drive, sometimes it happens after a few trips but I get motivated to go on a roll and see how I can do. Maybe today or tonight might take a cruise.

Took a three hour whirl this morning at $65 and.... a 20 buck tip!

Was a little shocked, thought it was a one all crumpled up at first. It was from a bartender at a new bar in Ballard that had a soft opening last night. Very appreciative, I need that 20!

Saturday went well for me, finally having a decent payday this week. 12 hours for 270 + 25 tips + 2 BK Rodeo Chicken Burgers tip (bad idea, stomach hurts). Lets hoping Sunday can bring 2 bills!

Did find a half-full Bud Light in back seat floor at end of night. That shit pisses me off, if you are going to stealth booze at least finish it off!

Saturday night makes two nights in a row with tips for me. Pleasantly surprising. And stealth booze --- had pax actually leave full ones behind (this was months ago). Don't know how I didn't notice it rolling around. Maybe stuffed in seat pocket. Next pax asked if they could have it. Lol.
Nice, racking up those tips! Stealth boozers have no shame. Up there with the sorority girls who try to pile 7 in there while being all distracting ;).

Sunday was so busy. Didn't get to 200 but got close going from 10 - 6 and puppied out. I didnt have one break all day, was ping after ping. Did get sent to the east side a few times and one airport run. The rest Capital Hill or downtown to Ballard for the seafood festival. Also to West Seattle a few times for that festival. Got yelled at in a very harsh manner by a cop who was on foot, which was a little unneeded but I saw his point.

So happy end of this week!

Rolled out of bed early and got a 4:15 to 7:30 shift in at 82 + a fiver tip. Two long airport runs and two DT shorties. Im going to start putting my tips in a jar and see how those babies add up, have 30 from last three days building up. Going to take tonight and tomorrow night off but going to hit every morning this week plus at least three other later shifts in and see how it goes. So awesome to have next 18 hours off, nap time for sure :).

I worked 4 - 7 this morning at $55, yesterday 4 - 7 too at $38. For sure seems to be slow, salvaged today with 2 Cap Hill airport runs, but seems my normal fishing spots in North Seattle are pretty empty.

Same, 2 airport runs salvaged the morning. But still only bringing in about 1/2 to 2/3 normal. Been going home everyday this week around $75 a day. Looks like I will be driving this weekend.

That was my target to recently upping to $750. These mornings not helping :(.
You are right about that. Took today off to catch up on boat biz and house. We are not racing this year as we are moving and setting up a new shop. Next year will be out and with a vengence. I cant wait. This business has a way of consuming every bit of life. So soending this summer regrouping.
