Trouble with Routes

I actually started on time today! I was so excited to start work today since it could be a great night. It is a Thursday before a long holiday (we get a lot of tourist come to see our amazing city over long weekends), the Warriors are playing at home for the semi finals, Hillary Clinton is in the city and I am feeling well rested and eager to pick up amazing people!

Tonight started with the airport, like always. My first ride was a short but my passenger made the ride awesome. He was here to put in new exercise equipment at the Ritz. He said it was more updated computer system that will track your progress no matter where you are. Very cool. We also talked about how he moved into a new place and was suppose to built a shelving unit he bought at IKEA but the shelves were not the correct size for where he needed to put them. He was all excited about buying a router and wood to make his own shelves. I asked if he had actually made shelves before and he said no but he couldn’t wait to try. That really inspired me to use the knowledge I received at HD to create something soon. Maybe on Sunday, since I have the day off.

After dropping him off I quickly went back to the airport for the short (a ride than can take me back to the airport in less than 30 minutes). I picked up a mother and who were coming just for the weekend to SF. Mom had been but had not yet. The was excited to see SF but was really interested in what was going on with her friends back home (her Mom asked). I asked what their plans were for the weekend and Mom said they were not going to do the normal “tourist” things except the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, shopping and maybe the cable cars. I suggested the cable car on California Street since it really isn’t a “tourist” cable car and it pretty awesome ride at night with the lights. I also let them know about the whales that have been spotted in the Bay over the past few weeks so they might still want to go to Fisherman’s Wharf/Pier 39 area. Hope they enjoy themselves and find a lot to do so they come back again and again.

I picked up 4 people from the hotel I dropped of the mother and . The people were not going really that far but with the one way roads and traffic it took a bit of time. They were okay with both. Actually they told me about a time they were with their boss and he flag a taxi to take them about 100 feet. They taxi driver almost laughed at them but took them anyway. They all laughed and asked if I have done that. I said, yes I have but most of the time it is up a hill. I let them know I didn’t mind. Happy their other taxi driver didn’t mind either. Also the lady with the Chewbacca mask came up as well. It was so funny! Only about half of the passengers knew what he was talking about. Last week I had a passenger say I looked kind of like that Chewbacca lady. I took it as a compliment. She seems happy and extremely friendly.

I dropped off a passenger at 14th and Anza so I thought I would stop off at the California Academy of Science. On Thursday nights they have adult nights, so adults can enjoy the museum without in site as well service alcohol. I heard it is an amazing night. I got a little turned around when finding the museum and came “at it” from a different way than I expected. That should have been okay but I sat there surrounded by people who were looking for their Uber/Lyfts. What I saw just made me wonder what these young people are thinking. Most waited and waited for their car to come (at least 6-10 taxis waited there as well) then had to ask 3-5 cars if this was their car. Crazy! I even watched a couple ask 3 cars if it was their car in about 5 minutes, waited on the steps for another 10 minutes then run and check another 5 cars finally finding their car. Does this sound like something smart? I don’t think so. How is that more convenient? I don’t know and I don’t get it.

I did get a ride out of the California Academy of Science but it took about 30 minutes of wait outside. When I did get a ride I made it out of Golden Gate Park with no problem but didn’t turn right just after leaving the park. I knew as soon as I crossed Fulton I was going the wrong way. I apologized to the passenger and turned off the meter until we got back to the correct route. He said, his Lyft driver earlier got so lost in Golden Gate Park, it took him 30 minutes just to figure out how to get to the right place! His ride wasn’t even 30 minutes away from the museum. I did feel bad but he seemed okay with it.

My next passenger was a guy I have picked up before, according to him. Nothing we talked about made me remember him, I hate when that happens. We get almost to his place and for some reason I wasn’t sure where I was going again. Lucky I was in the right area and it all worked out.

Happy I spent the rest of the night, not thinking about where I was going, not having any problems with rides. Sometimes if I think of a route, I cannot imagine where I am suppose to go but if I just go on instinct it is really easy. I guess I just need to have a little bit more faith on my knowledge.

Thank you again for reading my blog! Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing and living it!

Thank you very much for reading my blog!

I really enjoy reading your blog because I grew up in San Francisco and can picture each place you write about in my mind. I love the city too.

I believe nothing until it has become history!

I'm amazed that you can remember so many of your passengers.
I'm often getting lost when I'm driving....even in my small City.

I remember so many of them. I have always remembered faces but sometimes the stories I don't remember. That upsets me a bit. I guess we cannot always know everyone. Right?

As for not getting lost. I do often in the city. I am lucky I have the best passengers who can get me out of being lost.
