Driving is very unpredictable... Slow days tend to be Tuesday, Wednesday for me but its really based on where you drive. Couple weeks ago when it was really hot it took me 17 trips to net $115 took forever. 15 surge 2 flat. All surge ride were less than a couple miles :confused:

the worst day / night ever was last new year Eve, very low surge or no surge, any Saturday was better, we left our families and friends for nothing, I still remember uber sent email to all pax telling them what time most probably the surge will be and how to avoid it and telling them that your bill could be $100 ..bla bla bla, they all follow what uber said and they really avoid it, it was really bad day

Yesterday was terrible for me. Drove some cholo from Arcadia to Buena Park and got stuck there. Thought Harbor or Disneyland Dr might be active but all I got were obese folk that wanted $4 rides from their hotel to the park entrance. All I could think was, 'do they know they're going to be walking all day long?'. I'm about to begin deadmiling to Hollywood when I plan on 8+ hr shifts. Over getting stuck in unreliable areas when West LA goes off all day

I was dumb enough to get into that Disneyland area BS las week after a drop off out of DTLA.. Picked up 5 pax that went less then 1 mile to the Disney drop off spot.. It has to be the worst area to drive

yep, most just to go a closeby hotel. cause they are tired and lazy. i've only had one go back to LA, only 4 blocks from where i live. that was awesome, but rare.

Since you're new, maybe the Uber algo has quit pushing preferred rides to you. Now you gotta work and come up with a strategy.
Doing that little on one of the busiest days of the week is not a good sign.
I had a $300g day, yeah it took a while but I got it.
