I’m it for six years from 2008 to August 2014 I drove Amisn and a few tourist.I was in Allamakee County in northern Iowa Val’s Rural Rideshare. What is that ? Welllllll! It is pretty much as many Amish as can get into the vehical and one gullable good hearted fool(me.) I was under the assumption that everyone paid a specific fee at my discount being the owner and driver. Charging nothing for time. Charging nothing for time was stupid as my assumption that Amish life valid the thought that my driving was a business not their pleasure.
I have found that giving say two hours free to shop then adding a doller per hour to give hours then chargong two dollars for additional hours sounder practices. One day I had picked up Suzie Yoder her daughter and Darrel at the pig barn. It was morning. I stared I had to pick up David Yoder in the country at the mill at five thirty pm.
It took me took to until six pm to get to the mill.David had walked home.I had spent all day driving around Waukon Iowa. I made ten dollares divided by three. $3.33( to stipid to sell)see Amish split price of all rides.
One day I had a truck loaded with big women eight big women. I got $1.35 for my time. Geeeeeeeeee!
I had made the mistake saying
As a historian I love the Amish. Amish have no value of time. The object of a business is to make revenue. Revenue allows a business to pay bills, upgrade, survive.
When I wanted to start a cab service in Waukon Iowa my home town I went to the Chamber Commerce in Waukon. Gay shouts outsider Im still unclear why. I was the girl out of high school eorked for the elderly doing yard work, clearning and yard work tenspeed bike carrying my rake. Sp when ai asked for assistancr to start my business the dudes reponse was drive for the Amish. This is Feb. 2919 still no cab in Waukon Iowa.
So I drove the Millers and the Yoders. I kept what I learned using that imformation as my senior paper for Luther College.
Some times after the trip to town I would find out the passenger had no money.
Below is my senior paper at Luther College. I published it on Create Space in 2016 Amazon placed a notage on the page of my book that made my book appear to have been republished from 1751. Which is stupid and strange Amish did not come to Allamakee in northern Iowa until 2000.
Iowa was not even a state in 1751. Below is my senior paper I got in all $40 in royalties.
I find no one cares that poverty stricked hard working disabilied lesbia Americans who want to work need funding to restart my Ride Share. Driving Amish was a learning period. When I get breaks I will return to driving Amish.There are No jobs for disabiled female lesbians who knows they I can change the area for the better.
