So Godaddy tells me yesterday that despite what they said in my BBB complaint that they do not actually have a site backup for me. So they lied, and all that work I failed to update is gone. I really don’t know what happened to it. I thought I made manual copies but so far all the ones I checked all seem to be missing the whole last year. Not to mention the fact that I can’t seem to get the xml file to load the right way and it looks like shit on here. I’m going to have to ask these guys how to get it to install the right way, but either way, it looks like all that work is gone. I’m beyond frustrated by it. I had dozens of posts. I am really bad at making regular posts to my site, so losing those is a huge blow to me. I keep saying I’m going to do this more, but i get distracted so easily. I ague with trolls on Facebook and Twitter, I’m looking at porn, I’m playing online games, I’m downloading tv shows: II’m doing everything but writing. The good news is I work for Uber and Lyft so I have lots of new stories to post about. But right now I need to go out and work. I do have a camera, now, too, so maybe I can post some of the videos.
I quit working at the pizza place I was working t in Trumbull. Now I’m doing ridesharing. Yaaaaay! The pay is much better, but it’s really hard to be disciplined, and it’s hard dealing with drunks and ungrateful people all the time. The stupid score we have to maintain is just nuts. College students and drunks think four stars is a good rating, but what they don’t realize is four stars is low enough to get you fired. You need above a 4.6 or you get deactivated. Every time I take college students I regret it. I started out a 4.86 tonight and now I’m back to 4.83 because of asshole college students who want to feel powerful. And that power comes at the price of people’s jobs, and longer wait times for them. It’s stupid. They pay a third of what they would with a taxi and should be grateful, but are entitled assholes instead. The safest time to do the job is early in the day, like 5am-2pm. You can get all the same volume, all the same distances, with none of the shitty ratings. It’s amazing these companies don’t realize they’re penalizing drivers for making them money late at night.
