He's a big boy, everybody lies/distorts during job hunts, employees, employers. Everybody.

Like I say, the conventional way is to run the cab 24/7. Splitting it two or three ways while only paying one lease.

But that requires him to have one or two people in the world that he trusts and trust him. I suspect a 53 year old full time 'uber' driver/whiner will get more trust from strangers than people he actually knows.

For anybody considering taking his advice. The movie 'Battlefield Earth' is much, much better than the book. If you've seen the movie you'll realize just how bad the book is.

I bought it when it was first released, having previously read most of the 'golden age of scifi' authors, I was fooled by the Scientology lies. Just don't do it. If you do, at about page 10 you will start thinking 'this HAS to get better' doesn't.

I've never read any of 'Mission Earth', but much of it was ghost written by SeaOrg members after LRH 'jettisoned his body'.

LRH was a prolific writer, because he did speed, never did a second draft, lived in a echo chamber and allowed no edits. You can tell.

For quality, speed influenced scifi, you want PKD not LRH. Sure PKD has a lot of stories with no ending, but LRH's shit seems endless.
