    ...for :cheeses: 2, Electric Boogaloo, since :cheeses: 1 was in May.

    Bevi and I have a shitload of dark beer stocked, as usual. Carl and Deuce have whiskey.

    The rest of y'all can get fucked...except Cheeses. We need him for comedy value.

    Last one was on a Saturday at 3:00 before a Sox game, I think.

    They play the Tigers at 6:15 on 6/6.

    So, we put the game on the transistor, pull out the lawn chairs and yell loudly at passing cars. Also, we can whizz in the shrubs.

    Recently did the latter for a hawks game. Crushed my thumb in the car door when the driver stopped at a gas station so I could get cash after the uber app prematurely ended the ride. Guy was only willing to drive me the last few miles if I paid cash.

    Why the fuck didn't you just request a new ride? He'd get the ping

    I kept doing that. Some other prick kept picking up the ride.

    My phone was almost dead at this point, too. I told him I'd just get out and take the new ride but he was all no, no let me drive you. Cost me $10 (he claimed to have no change for a twenty beyond a ten) and then $5 in atm fees to go from Damen and Fullerton up to Damen and Roscoe.

    I should've reported the driver.

    I picked up this kid from Haymarket, and my passenger's name was going to be "Edward." The kid came up to the door and said "Ed?" so I said yeah, and he hopped in. I drove a block and suddenly the trip was canceled. I asked the kid WTF you do that for? He said he didn't cancel it. Turns out, "Edward" was my passenger's drinking buddy who I was actually supposed to pick up. The kid in my car was Tyler. Tyler was supposed to be picked up by Uber driver, "Ed."

    So, with Tyler in the car driving down Randolph, I told him to just request again. He did, and I got the ping. The price had gone up from 1.3 to 1.4, and I collected $5.89 from his friend for that one-block bogus ride that was canceled mid-trip. I figured Edward would've emailed in to say it was a mistake, but he never did, so I got paid for it. Project Mayhem.

    Yeah, I had planned this Fire tailgate for my friends for the 30th. Then realized I'd be out of town that weekend so I moved it to the next home game but if the Hawks are playing I'm cancelling.

    That is so fucking stupid on his part. Why in god's name would you barter with a customer for a SINGLE fucking cash payment (tax free yippee!) when it could get you fired? Also you should use the Cash app for shit like this. I got paid by some bitch online who was I think doing journalistic research on Uber drivers. Made 15 bucks. I didn't have to pay a fee, just got the money.

    I took a girl for cash just one time. She called ahead and asked if I would just take cash, so I said "sure" because hey, there's a chance she'll give more than I would normally make.

    So when she got in, she said she always offers cash to drivers to get to her job and the drivers take the usual rate -20% so basically: Uber is the loser, she is the winner, and the driver breaks even WHILE doing something that is cause for permanent deactivation. She said the usual fare is 15 so she lops off 20% and pays like 12. I told her the preceding breakdown of the situation, i.e. what exactly is in it for me other than 12 bucks of tax-free income, which is utterly trivial in the scheme of a tax year. She had no good answer for that. So I was like it's okay just give me what you usually pay the other guys (because I'm not going to break Uber rules unless I'm insulated from customer wrath--which is how Sycked's driver failed). I merely wanted to illustrate to her the obvious lack of mutual benefit in this situation.

    She ended up giving me the full 15 anyway, so I got Uber's cut and I didn't pay taxes on the trip.

    I've told this story before, the Philly/Hawks Game 1 I watched on a campground downstate. Someone's uncle bought an ad hoc projection TV from Walmart with the intention of returning it the next day.

    So if you want me to stop at Walmart on the way down let me no
