Not My Will

When I woke up yesterday morning, I was excited that, for the first time, I would be able to work all day doing Uber and Lyft (and the other apps, too).


After about an hour, on my first Uber run of the day, my car's sensor showed I had low tire pressure. I got out of the car and looked at my tires. One of them was torn on the side.


I had to cut the ride short. I took the passengers to the Exxon Station down the road, and called Uber to let them know what was going on and why the trip was cut short and that the passengers needed to be reimbursed for their fee.


Then, I went to the tire shop, trying hard to make it there before my tires went flat.


It cost me $30 to replace my tire.


After about an hour dealing with that, I was back to work. I did a couple of deliveries on other apps, but after 3 hours, I realized I wasn't getting Uber trips. I checked my Uber app and they wanted me to upload pictures of my car to prove it was in good working condition. I did that and waited another hour. Then, I called them and asked them what the problem was.


After all I did to ensure my passengers were taken care of, they still reported my car as being a safety issue and called me "impolite". I honestly don't know how I could have bent over even more backwards.


Finally, after two more hours, they reactivated my status on the app, but by then, the day was about over, and I had only made half of my goal for the day.


All I could do was think of something about God's Will and man's best laid plans.


Tomorrow was another day.

For some reason, it was especially slow last night until early this morning. I did manage to make a $100 deposit, though. Not NEAR what I need for rent. I now have $250 of the $690 I need. I don't see
