The Adventures Of Oko Ashawo The Uber Driver - 110

Those who regularly use Uber/Bolt services will agree with me that the last festive period the fares were unusually higher than normal.

For me, it was mixed blessings.

 I did not join the race early because I was not too well for a while and needed to rest. However, when I decided to work on Christmas Eve, I was shocked at how much I made within a few hours. I started working by 5pm and before 12 midnight, I had a full wallet.

Trips that would usually cost 2k turned out to be over 4k and for most of the day in most places, it was the same occurrence. While still on a trip, as I got close to my destination with my client, another request would come in immediately. It was such a beautiful experience and I wished everyday would be just like that. Anyway, as the saying goes …. “Every day no be Christmas” but I made sure I enjoyed every moment of it.

I did not want to miss the Cross-Over Service for anything; and I made up my mind to start working just after church service. I started my first trip for the year around 1am and it almost ended up being a disaster. 

I picked up a couple from church and the road leading to their house was bad.
 While I was getting close, I tried to avoid the very bad portions as much as I could but unfortunately, I climbed a very big stone, which I did not notice on time. I felt something break at the rear area of the passenger side of the car and it dragged on the floor. It was a metal sound, which felt like the silencer had left position and pulled along. 

Haaaa … which kain wahala be this on the first day of the year?

I managed the car like that till I got to their house before checking it out. I found that the stabilizer linkage had broken and it dragged on the floor. I thought about what to do as a quick fix since there was no way on earth I would get a mechanic to help me fix it at that time of the night. Luckily for me, I found a rope close by that I used in tying up the broken component to the chassis area while I continued working.

On New Years Day, the least of the surge trips I got was 1.9 times higher than normal. There was a time I even got surge trips of up to 2.8. Working as an Uber driver had never been so good but since it wouldn’t last forever, I worked really hard increasing my working hours. My usual earnings for a week were made in just 2 days.

One thing I observed this period also is that my rating dropped pretty fast from the 4.96 area out of a maximum 5 points to 4.75 in a few days. I was not surprised because clients were not happy with the fares and they looked for any reason to score an Uber driver low.

 I just want to thank God for a beautiful year that has started on a very good note and I pray that everyone reading this will have a wonderful and fulfilling year ahead. 

For the first time in a long time, January is looking like it has only 15 days. I can’t believe we are on the 7th day already.
