    I just park and stare at the phone for to buzz.  sad, I know.  oh, i also occasionally look for surge areas.

    I play iPhone games.   Like a lot.   Stay away from pay to play games, because then i'd be losing money on my shift.  I am actually serious about this.  That's the rule.

      Hahaha, clever. and a good answer. I try to only be out only for surge times so hopefully I don't have much down time

    Never drive around.  Just pull over, open up a newspaper and wait.  Don't wanna be wasting gas and mileage.   

    just read.  email, book, whatever

        I am cleaning up puke between my rides.

        actually, on a serous note, after every ride, I do tidy up the car, maybe vacuum using my portable, and check for stuff.  Water bottle in the cupolders, etc.  I drive in Phoenix.  Black.

    I listen to podcast. 

    Ever since my wife got me a FitBit, I try to get steps. Park somewhere (if not in a city) and walk around the block.

    and I resist the urge to play phone games. waste of time and money.

    I am not a driver, but if I drove one, I would knit!

    i work in a semi suburban area.  i sometimes just go home, keep the driver app on, and do whatever i do at home.  when i get a request i jump out and go for the pick up.  not sure if this is allowed or not.

      Umm.  Probably not.

      Then again, I'd like to know where it says it's not allowed.
