It's amazing how much the cab drivers are concerned about the safety of the community! Who knew?!?
I don't think there has been one person that is pro cabbies that has gone up with an IQ higher than most 4th graders I know!
They sound like a bunch of whiney babies saying this is so unfair!...

Pretty sure every house in Louisiana has increased in value over the last year. That doesn't mean that one area isn't in more demand than the other. Try renting out a house in Metairie and then in Lakeview and tell me how you do. It's incredible how fast things go in Lakeview. ...

[quote]Why not just live in Metairie and save a ton of money?[/quote]
Because you want to buy somewhere where you home will increase in value (Lakeview, Old Metarie, Uptown, WD, GD, etc.), not Metry or Kenner.
FYI- I do not consider Old Metry as Metairie, they are completely different in price, ...

That's about right. It's incredible how much of the taxpayer money gods to the 9th ward. I'm not sure what they pay in taxes but I do know only 35% of homes in Nola pay property taxes and something tells me that area makes up a large amount of that 65 of non tax payers!

[quote]Ok. When you call them to order delivery they go off estimate wait time given by cpu. That time is determined on how long it should take to make the pizza, how far from the store you are, and how long it should take a driver. It sees driver out on a run if they are. Well lets just say that th...

Wait what were you pointing out? That Uber has better service at a cheaper price? You've already stated(along with everyone else here) that Uber is cheaper so you can't say that the equation works out in your favor. I NEVER hear stories of people experiencing unsafe rides in Uber vehicles or yellow...

I can't understand why the cabbie is worried about UBER (if he wasn't worried about UBER you wouldn't see him in here spending so much time discussing this). If UBER is 1. a shitty service for customers and 2. a shitty company to work for that doesn't pay their drivers anything then he has NOTHING ...
