how do you want to contribute to this beautiful world
how do you want to reflect the glory of God
how can you honor your mother
where will your name be written when all is said
do you want to be loved so badly you will sell out
would amber want to be your friend
have you forgotten the ideals you had when you were 10
are you following the path of Basics
or The Exceptionals
are you inspiring others to be better
do you make others better
are you a cancer or the cure
but right now ive got friends in Egypt checking out the pyramids and in Kuwait playing video games with our troops
yesterday i had an interesting dilemma. it was surging 2.5x on Uber but i got a ping on Lyft Premium (which is like a 3x surge).
when i got the Lyft request i saw it was from a gated community near a country club and every time ive picked up someone there it was a short, irritating ride.
and now that Uber and Lyft tells you whether or not it is a long trip or not, i knew this Lyft ride wasn’t going to be a long ride.
so i was tempted to cancel it but i had just lectured all these dumb young kids on the Uber facebook page that you shouldn’t cancel a guaranteed decent ride in hopes that you will get a big fat long ride in a minute or two.
traffic was bad where i was gonna pick them up and again i was tempted, but the Lord led me out of temptation and i got to where i needed to be and there they were waiting for me.
one of the things about these rides is there is the small chance that as you are driving they will say, oh we didnt mean to drop us off here (a short ride) we meant for you to take us Alllllllll the way over here (a long, profitable ride).
but the other pleasant surprise is they can give you a $10 tip because they rich as hell and cool and appreciated you and are good hearted.
and thats what happened. a $10 tip on a $21 ride.
still i want to see the pyramids soon!
