Today was cold and wet.
When I went to work about 1 PM, it was raining hard.
I told the dogs they had to stay in the house today, but that I would buy them a treat to make up for it. They were disappointed, but when I opened the door to show them, Milo ran to the bedroom and crawled under the covers. Probably to sulk.
I decided that, as hard as it was raining, and as wet as it was, I wasn't about to do deliveries today. I figured Uber would have more business since no one wants to walk in the rain.
I picked up one guy who was going to the Bi-state. He left his wallet in my car. I didn't know it until an honest customer I got next informed me that there was a wallet in the seat.
I tried to call him, but the call wouldn't go through. I did another run, then I drove by his house and got out of the car, in the rain, and knocked on his door. I knew it was where he lived, because I read his license in the wallet.
A lady answered the door and I explained (she was his mom) that I was his Uber driver and that he had left it in the car, then I went about my business. My good deed for the day was done.
I went to pick up a call from Best Buy, but there were four people trying to get into my car. I didn't have room for all four of them so I cancelled the ride. Then I got another ping from the same place. I declined it, because I knew it was them. If I decline it, it automatically jumps to another driver. I hope they had better luck.
Then, I got nothing for 3 hours.
I finally hung it up and decided that I didn't need to work anymore today. I had made enough to pay all my bills until the 26th.
I got gas at the Exxon, and since Uber automatically enrolled me into Upside, I got nearly 20 cents/gallon back. I bought the dogs a 4-piece chicken nuggets from Wendy's, then came home and gave them the treat I promised them. They loved me for it.
When I got home, I had a headache. The weather was getting to me. It was cold and wet.
I started a new gallon of tea and now I'm relaxing the rest of the night. I guess God wanted me to take time off.
Tomorrow is a new day. I guess not every day can be a $235 day.
Whatever, Lord. Whatever Your Plan is, I'm Yours.
