through canyons no wise driver would drive.
we have this thing called acceptance rate and just like in life youve gotta keep it up
so you do dumb things like go up to the top of mountains to pick up who pinged you
normally youd just cancel that ish because people who live in gazillion dollar homes
and yet order the cheapest possible uber – well it just seems weird.
sometimes its a nanny or a kid or someone using air b n b and in those cases its ok.
but last night i got an Uber Select ping way up on top of old smokey and Waze said it was only 8 minutes
but just like in life sometimes Waze cray.
it was more like 15 which is still fine because doing this crazy bonus thing most of your rides net you $2 or $4
so whenever you can get a Select ride then thats great because not only is that one more ride towards the 100
but at least this one is gonna be profitable.
she was gorgeous, wore a cape, i kid you not, was young, smelled like bubble gum and ironically as we were winding down the twisty curvy road she asked me if i had any gum.
rule number one of being an uber driver is to carry a gun at all times. kidding mom!
rule number two is have barf bags at the ready.
but rule number three is never ever ever ever ever ever have gum because you will certainly see it in your carpet or seats in the morn.
which is why i carry mints, which i found for her and gave to her and youd think youd tip a brother for that
but the only tip i got was from this drunk dude named pablo who i picked up at a bar who i had picked up there once before
and we drove to his apartment on the west side and talked about the Lakers the whole time
and as he was getting out of the car struggled to find money in his fat wallet filled with business cards and promises
and pulled out one and then two dollars and said thank you amigo
and i said day nada my friend.
