I'd day there's a lot of people self-isolating now that antigen tests are being used so widely.The daily covid figures are probably only a fraction of the true amount of infection out there.Even if they were accurate it means there could be 200000 people with possitve test results and countless more that are close contacts that are waiting for PCR tests.The advice on the HSE documentation is stay out of buses and taxis if you're riddled.

Drivers have become too dependent on Mytaxi.
If the app is quiet they go home.
They no longer can find their own work.
Please tell me Jack where you can find your own work by night in Cork city ?

Granted there is a busy hour 7.45pm to 8.45pm when the pubs close, but that's it !
By 9pm it's all over and the streets are bare.

If you weren’t stickered up you could go to Satellite taxis or some other company and do pay as you go. 2 euro per job. You depend on the pub trade so if that’s quiet your quiet.
Still a lot of contract work out there.

Fair play, Ken. I hope we have the usual exodus of like-minded drivers at this time of year. Pulled over a deuce in 3.7 hours yesterday afternoon... no bonus needed and home in time to lose a ton on the darts!

Yesterday I rang the trummer bell between 12 and 730 pm,so who knows?
The only certainty in the COVID era is that nothing is the same as it used to be.
That is fair going Van D, I take it that your stickered up by now,
it's the only way to go these days.
(And maintain Priority if'n ya can).
Is that nett?

2 bucks per job only.
If you need to work that’s where you have to go.
Sure beats sitting on yer hole all day and claiming the puppy

Thanks Jack,
but joining a base again is not fer me,
I'll sit it out fer Jan earning just the required 120 after expenses,
and have a re-think in Feb,
but unlikely joining a base will even be a consideration,
as I'm after getting much too fond of FN's 'Accept/Decline' buttons.

I heard the Dark Lord was offering the same on an Icabbie system, 2 bucks per job.

I honestly believe that Feeding goes on in every base and that is the main reason that I dislike the idea of joining any of them, also the long run-in's are a pain.

No big run ins as it’s all broken down into zones.
Like Douglas and Rochestown are different zones.
Feeding prob goes on but that’s down to bad management

Base op (prob a weed-head as most of them are) takes in a job, his only interest is to get that job off his screen, he don't care how long the run-in is fer the driver, all he wants is a car number next to the job.

As fer Feeding, then I have seen it from both sides and it will never ever go away, at least with FN you have some clue about where you stand.
