Where is the Surge? Friday night and it's over quickly?

Tough Friday out there, surge came on around 1:30 and ended around 2:20 in the prime downtown Dallas areas. I thought I caught one at 215 am, but checked the waybill and it was an Uber VIP that got me at regular price. Should have cancelled, but figured it would be in my best interest to just do the ride. I had cancelled a few earlier and was even put in the 2 minute penalty box. I am very disappointed with the $25 bucks I made in the last 2 hours. I had two trips up the tollway and back downtown and Uber left out the tolls on both! I netted $4.50 x 2 $9 and without the toll reimbursement I would have gotten $6 bucks for a 30 minute excursion. Uber is getting worse by the day.

I had an awesome Friday/Saturday. I was taken under wing and helped a lot with these!! Definitely looking forward to more excitement!! I, however stay out of Dallas since I am not permitted to drive there yet. I am NOT sure I want to either since I was told they contact your insurance company when doing the inspection. I'd rather NOT let them know right now that I am doing Uber/Lyft.
Obtaining rideshare insurance is not hard these days.
