I drove Uber for a few days last year – just for kicks, and quickly realized my time was better spent elsewhere.
I drove for 8 hours, spread across 4 days and made $151. Shockingly, only 3 of the 17 riders tipped. The tippers included a nice lady from New Mexico, a younger woman from Connecticut, and a young accountant from Ohio. Non tippers included seemingly well to do professionals – two consultants in suits, start up guys, hipsters, and IT consultants.
