I’ve been so busy lately working on my “RidingWithRetep” stuff lately that I’ve neglected to post anything “normal” about what’s been going on. I guess when you boil it down, not much is really all that new but I will try to sum up things from the past few weeks.

Red light runner

So last night I was downtown on Pearl street getting ready to get on the highway.  I’m talking to my pax as we’re pulling up to the light, and I saw a big lifted pick up truck on the side of the road with it’s hazzards on.  I didn’t really think anything of it until we came to a stop and I heard a loud engine.  I looked in the rearview mirror and all I see is that truck just barrelling towards the red light.  Sure enough it just blew right through it. 

Late Night Things caught on Video

Being a Rideshare driver is a lot of fun. I get to meet new people every single day. Every single hour. I get to hear different stories, and outlooks on life. I get to sometimes have deep discussions about things. I also get to see some crazy things with working the night shifts on the weekends. Last Friday night was no exception.

She called me fat!

So Saturday morning rolled around and I accidentally slept through my alarms, and didn’t wake up until 9am almost exactly. I get up and I get ready and decide to start my day on Lyft instead of Uber. The first run of my day Saturday was quite a doozey. I get to the pickup point at York Creek Apartments.

His Mamma yelled at me too!

So I had an interesting (almost) trip the other morning. Before I get into the story there’s a few things that I need to get straight. I usually start every morning around 6am. The other thing that I need to share, is that it is against Uber and Lyft’s policy for any minors to be in the car unaccompanied. That is, they can not ride anywhere without somebody 18 or older with them. Ok, lets get into the meat and potatoes.

Trip to Detroit

So Saturday we went to Detroit to see the Pistons play against the Trailblazers.  Shereen grew up in Portland so she’s a fan of them, an of course I grew up here and root for the home team. Ive also been able to attend several Pistons games in the past so this should be fun.  On the way down we’re going to stop at a few Middle Eastern stores so that she can look around. We’re also stopping to have food at Wahlburgers.  After the game, I’m gonna try to convince Shereen to stop at Buddy’s Pizza so I can try them out before they open in Grand Rapids.

Finally moved in!

So we’re finally moved into the new place. Got a couch, and some decorations. We’re not quite done unpacking though. We’ve got the kitchen unpacked, and I’ve got all my clothes unpacked and of course my computer area unpacked. The bedroom is mostly done, and Shereen still has a couple boxes of clothes to do. There’s some random stuff that I probably should just throw away as I haven’t touched any of it in forever. Not sure why I even packed it in the first place.

We did find some repairs that need to be done. I caulked the tub base as well as the sink counter top. I’m quite surprised, to be honest, because when it comes to caulk, I’m usually the last person that you want to be touching caulk. It’s usually always a big pile of gunk by the time I’m finished. That being said, the two jobs I did came out pretty good. Nice and even. The next project I need to work on is to figure out why the floor drain in the basement is clogging up. Hopefully it’s just too much lint or something since that’s where the washer and dryer are hooked up. It did my first batch just fine, but the second round is where it got bad. I went downstairs to check on the status of the wash. Water everywhere.
