I never thought of this, but driving is such a good excuse for a cheating spouse to leave the house and stay out for an extended period. Unlike a regular job where he needs to be at a specific location and having the hours tracked, driving gives so much freedom of hours and locations.
It's the same as me forgetting my reusable bags to the grocery store, which happens every time. Bleh.
You might be thinking about internal sexual harassment cases where employers can do more to protect its employees. However this is about passengers.
Sure there a lot more the company can do. Take complains to riders more seriously, ban or warn riders, be more explicit about what’s not permitted in the guidelines, etc.
If Uber decides to not do any of it for the sake of revenue, yeah, we have a systematic problem.
We do what we can do protect ourselves, right? Of course, there is a level of trust, but it's naive to think we can trust every driver fully .
Well, as a female, I was actually instructed to only put my first initial so the drivers wouldn’t be able to plan doing anything weird.
I have always been suspicious of Uber charging higher prices for loyal and repeat customers. ...because they will keep coming back for more.
I wonder if that describes people who claim they got different fares on different phones (in the same location)
“You’ve changed the way the world moves.” So corny. LOL
Oh my gosh! Why must you ask this? Are you planning something evil?!
Tell the driver to immediately pull over, inform him the plans have changed, and walk away whistling and hope no one notices.
Make sure to call your driver you actually called.
So much cover-up effort.
Blood found in the car's passenger side and trunk was matched to Josephson's, the chief said, and her cell phone was found in the passenger compartment. Investigators also found a container of liquid bleach, germicidal wipes and window cleaner in the vehicle, he said.
Two of my buddies started doing Doordash (or UberEats), I can't remember, and they both ride bicycles in Manhattan. They have been excited to get exercise in and make money at the same time.
...but guess what. They say it still isn't worth the money, and they have no car costs. That just tells you how the economics doesn't work on food delivery.
Right, I feel like there has to be a market for this. Drivers who aren't usually driving UberX and people. The economics must work, as there are precedents with Dominos. Crappier cars, young people who can't make money elsewhere, and more efficient process of keeping the drivers busy.
I wonder how it's different from pizza delivery or Chinese delivery. I am sure those restaurants make money, right? I mean, Domino's has its entire business model built on delivery. How can it be so bad for Uber.
They built a new Wholefoods near my house last year. Now I have 2 hour delivery of any groceries. Free as long as I order more than $25. Amazing.
I can summarize your post with one line: “Shut up and drive”.
Easy. Request a driver. Once accepted, look at the name of the driver. If it's a guy's name, cancel. If it's a girl's name, go with it.
They can't give you a negative feedback unless the ride has started.
I love it.
Will there ever be a story like this on Uber drivers. I’m thinking not really.
5 hours for $39 is shoddy, but if 3 hours of that I spend reading, watching NetFlix and enjoying myself (And not incurring gas costs), maybe it's okay.
I've never driven but $4.54 in 30 minutes doesn't mean $9.08 an hour, right? You have to wait for the orders to come in. I guess you can even wait in your living room? I gotta try this driving thing some day.
