I had an unpleasant experience Monday while driving for Uber. It involved Maryland’s child safety seat law and Uber’s refusal to support it.
I thought that when you drove for Uber or Lyft, you were exempt from the law requiring young children to be in a child safety seat. Taxis are exempt from the Maryland child safety seat law. I was under the assumption that Maryland considered rideshare drivers to be like taxi drivers.
One of the dumbest logos in all of professional sports is the Washington Nationals Stars and Stripes logo. It’s the regular Walgreens “W” cluttered with, you guessed it, stars and stripes. It looks like a Great Dane with irritable bowel syndrome got into a box of crayons, ate them, and then took a dump on the front lawn. It looks terrible and I hate it.
Once a week Lyft emails its drivers a feedback summary. It supposedly shows how we did for the week and if there are any areas we can improve. It includes our up-to-date Lyft driver feedback score. That is, it’s up-to-date at the time the email was sent.
Driving for Uber yesterday took me to the nearby city of Frederick. While there, I thought I’d stop by the newer Walmart on the north part of town. I checked out the diecast car section. I’ve gotten back into collecting Hot Wheels. Not the cheap mainline cars like I did before, but the premium cars. They have Real Riders wheels and a metal base.
