Capitalism at its best.
Isn't this another argument that drivers should be employees?
Not anymore. The drivers know, riders know, we all know we all have GPS. I really don't think there are any "trust issues" anymore. All passengers know we are using GPS, so why would they use it? If they are using it, that means they are probably looking for arrival time, just interested in the routes or locations that are on the way to the destination, etc. No one cares.
Couldn't have said it any better.
Your question needs context. What aspect of being an Uber driver are you referring to? Being an independent contractor? Having a clueless and a non-loyal employer? Being in the service industry? Not making as much as doctors?
Sexual favors. I haven’t had one though. LOL I hear about it all the time but I’m starting to doubt it ever happens. Must be a myth

How do you not remember?
I guess they may look alike.
Now that Uber has successfully taken over the taxi industry and forced most existing companies to bankruptcy, it's time for them to raise their prices. Their goal (that everyone knew) has always been to grab the monopoly.
Not to mention the economics of taxis have never been a highly profitable business. Uber disrupted an industry that was already established, with drivers and dispatchers. It was alreday working with very low margin. They removed it, and replaced it. It was basically just a deregulation.
The problem is they added more bureaucracy to this where the company takes a huge cut (over 28%) of every ride even though they claimed to have created efficiency. We are all now facing the reality that the prices have to be raised to pre-Uber levels. Oh, you will see.
Not to mention it's infinitely easier to clean. I feel all drivers should have it. Just wipe and go. It helps on rainy days, after driving pets, any accidents, etc. Fabric is WAY too much of a liability.
Why not just sign up for Uber with your international number. Each phone number can have its own Uber account.
Added benefit is that you don't have to keep logging in and out on the same phone.
No, not particularly. I do not want to make the same mistake the history has made.
Could you put the crate in the trunk? Or does it go up front?
Gosh, I’d hate to drive in one direction for eight hours and the time expire. That’d be a long drive home.
Maybe it works out financially? I’m too afraid to do the math.
Good to know. Where does this show up? After every ride?
$1300 was definitely way too much but $600, maybe?
The problem is...it’s purely for transporting yourself. No passengers, no hauling groceries. $600 is a lot of money so you can walk a little faster.
Taxicabs are not allowed by Uber and Lyft, so no. If you call for an Uber and a taxi shows up, they are breaking the rules.
Shame. There're always people who try to take advantage of their status.
It's a form of an entitlement. They quickly start to expect things, regardless of whether they deserve it or not. Being a hero is about doing something without expectation for a reward.
Maybe you are doing something wrong pandemic related. Are you doing things to make riders feel safe? Are you wiping down the seats and windows? Are you wearing a mask?
Uber rep tried so hard to be noncombative. "We appreciate your professionalism..." "Thank you for your patience."
Touched this dude's nerve though. There was no taking this back.
Uber was supposed to have released this feature years ago. The closest they came to was an ability to split a payment and share a ride.
Gosh, so many holier than thou drivers here, claiming "they would be happy to wait." Why can't we be honest? I absolutely hate waiting around and I know many other drivers do too.
I get whopping $0.15 a minute and that's before Uber takes its 25% cut. (Maybe it's better in other cities.) That's like $6 an hour, lower than minimum wage. I hear other drivers saying it's better than not having a passenger, but it sucks compared to when we are driving a passenger.
We get paid the most while driving and the vehicle moving. On a busy night, this kils productivity and earnings. If I sat around all night waiting for people picking up their dates, I wouldn't be able to earn a living.
Please just complete the trip and order another one. That isn't that hard, right? Booking fee is like $2 to $3.
