So I think I’ve made the decision to put an end to “Riding With Retep”. I think while it served its purpose at the time, I don’t think i’ll be going back to doing any gig work. I’m pretty happy with where I’m at now, and with Covid-19 I just haven’t done any gig work work in quite some time anyways.Continue reading “That’s all she wrote”
So today I started a new job. I’m now working at Farmers Insurance here in town. This is good news and bad news.Continue reading “Change is in the air! (Two good things, one bad thing)”
So crazy times out there. I haven’t been driving for the past few weeks because of all the craziness going on with Covid-19. Things were going good, and then they closed the bars right before the weekend, and it was all over from there.
So it dawned on me that while I’ve been blogging now for years here on my self hosted blog, and that lots of the people who read this know exactly who I am and what I’m doing. However, with my recent uptick in all my social media endeavors, I’ve gained a lot of new followers and readers and should probably explain a bit about myself.
So, next week, I finally get to bring in the car to get repaired. It’s been a long time coming, and I can’t wait to get it done.
I had a very interesting night tonight. I went out today around 5pm and started working. All in all it was a very unremarkable night aside from the story that I’m about to tell. It was easily the slowest night I’ve seen in the 1.5 years or so that I’ve been doing this. But tonight, might have been the most terrified that I’ve been. Perhaps even more so than the Crazy Guy that I’ve picked up a couple of times and talked about [HERE] and [HERE].Continue reading “I got chased down the street”
So I had a rider the other night who I picked up Sunday morning at around 2:30am. I picked her up from a Taco Bell in Grand Rapids, after her shift. I pulled into the parking lot and she was already waiting for me, which was nice since many times when we arrive somewhere we have to wait up to 5 minutes for them to come out.Continue reading “She tried to get a free ride!”
So these two girls approached the car after an apparently fun night at Billy’s. The first girl gets in the front, and the second girl just kinda stands at the back door. As you can see from the video, they were so drunk they couldn’t see the back door.
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.
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.Continue reading “Late Night Things caught on Video”
