""The quality of life that I get from working with Lyft is essential to doing the projects that I love.""
– Lyft driver
I made my own hours and my own goals. I could stop anytime my life needed me to and start work again at my leisure. No boss to tell me what to do and no coworkers to worry about. Just a few simple rules and a positive attitude!
I can't be all alone! I have loved my experiences with Lyft so far and I have even driven at like 3 in the morning. NONE of my friends will even try it. I think they're scared. They tell me I am nuts. Here's the thing........you have to be smart no matter what in life and know that in your car, at the grocery store, on a train, etc. someone COULD harass you. Don't forget women harass women too. It;'s a sad truth, but this is life. I have been free from that but I am prepared to handle myself if and when someone decided to go that far no matter where I am. We shouldn't let our fear ruin a chance at a job we might love. I really enjoy mine! So any ladies with me???

I drive for Lyft and I can't make money if I stay home, but I also can't refuse someone a ride who is sick!!
This fare got in and she looked and sounded real bad. Was I thinking it was Corona? No. I mean she could have it, but it would still suck if she had the flu and gave it to ME. I can't stay home. I CAN'T get sick! I need to pay child support to my ex or I am majorly screwed.
What the hell do I do next time? Kick them out?
