abstainer & attrition

Quotations:


-- I have one problem with the meet up. Last time a picture was posted of all those in attendance. I rather my picture was not posted on any public forum. Can those of us who value their privacy be assured their ugly portraits do not end up on this forum?
 - Yes we had 1 abstainer last time...


-- It would be interesting to know Ubers Algorithm to increase ANT population. Maybe it is based on something like

If driver Attrition is x%
Then Recruit x% + y% more drivers
y% would be determined by projected the growth rate

mmmm . . . . . . . . It's not the smartest or the strongest that survive . . . . . Its those who are able to adapt to the circumstances we face.

That's why I like looking at this forum to listen to experiences, ideas, tips & ramblings. I don't want to be in the " x" factor

adjournment & pun

Quotations:


-- I lost too many points at one stage about 15 years ago. I managed to drag out the actual conviction by about 12 months. This was by not paying the fine letting it go to court and then getting 3 adjournments. Getting the adjournments was as easy as saying I needed further legal advice. You could get away with that 3 times. 
In that 12 months I saved enough to head off overseas for the 3 months.
Not sure it is still that easy but maybe worth looking at?


-- These guys have been inspirational for my 3 months driving uber. 
Focus on your own situation and enjoy the ride(pun intended) 
And we're not mules, or you are if you feel that way. We chose to do this and the consequences thereof. 
Harden up or go home - just saying....

Definitions:

adjournment:
adjourn:
1. to suspend the business of a court, legislature, or committee temporarily or indefinitely, or become suspended temporarily or indefinitely;

pun:
the clever or humorous use of a word that has more than one meaning, or of words that have different meanings but sound the same.

(no) pun intended:
Added after a pun, a play on words mostly for a comic reception. Usually someone adds 'pun intended' when the pun isn't so clear, or to emphasize the pun.
