Wow. I don’t drive but I can see how the drivers are upset. Thanks for sharing.
Whatever happened to the good old days of being charged let every mile.
Soon, this whole thing will blow up and we will all go back to the days of taxis.
What happened the first time?
I thought all NYC measure have gone into effect by now
Like 30-50% of people tip, so that twisted the average for those who tip to like $0.30 to $0.50
Why is everyone saying confidential and everyone knows about it.
Plus, how can filing to be a public company be confidential. This is all fake news
I was going to say that she could have pretended that she didn't know the man. Then I realized that the husband would have known the destination. A local hotel. LOL.
Yeah, she has pretty awesome stories.Do all Uber drivers have these amazing stories? Does it come with a job or does she work the interesting hours and places?
@momof4, you shoud create new posts instead of in comments. I didn't see these stories in this topic before because they were buried in the comments.Keep 'em coming.
Why force F to Ph. Just drop the vowels like everyone else. LOL.
Love the proliferation of this service. You know the old adage, "have a friend with a pickup truck", but no one does.
Hey, look at that. In Boston. I had no idea.
People do this for closure, right? I think psychiatrists sometimes suggest this. It's a way to say goodbye and let the reality sink in.
Can riders really change their names? Whatever happened to accountability and howe are no longer driving complete strangers?
so much for safety.
You must have given a big hug to the next rider who requested a trip! (and I hope you weren't late)
This story is sending chills down my spines to hear this story.
Thanks for sharing the story.
You are thinking WAY TOO HARD.
You should sell your data.
...or at least continue to share it with us. :)
I don't think he knows how to pronounce "autonomous."
Knowing some decent people with criminal records, I do empathize with people who are looking for jobs. I do. Some people have learned their lessons. Some of them just got caught up with a wrong crowd. Some people were just there at the wrong time wrong place. I get it. Many of them do deserve a second chance.
With that said, perhaps directly working with customers, in an enclosed cabin, alone with potentially vulnerable people, away from the monitors of supervisors, etc. may not be an ideal position to offer these people. I don't think I really have to explain that, right? There is a reason people demand tighter background checks on these positions.
I am glad you guys are all having fun with this serious topic.
Maybe she didn't live there, and just said she did.
and if she didn't live there, maybe she just made an honest mistake?
Not to pile on, but most drivers are rude, the car are dirty, and they won't use a meter. Receipts are never available.
They don't use GPS either. I think it's intentional, so they can take longer rides to inflate the fare.
People talk about the app which is the obvious answer. Being able to see the location of the cars, payments, etc. are all great, but for me? Where I am from, taxis are unreliable in terms of availability and pricing.
When I call for a car, half the time it doesn't show up. I don't even know if one was dispatched or if someone else just hailed it before a car got to me. Who knows. Sometimes they would tell me ont he phone that there are simply no cars available. So I would have at least three phone numbers in my pocket, and I just have to call around.
Pricing. I am not the type to be taken for a ride, but the prices are erratic. I do live in a city that has regulated pricing - somewhat, but every cabbie has his own price. Most will quote you, but we all know it's made up. This constant haggling and negotiation gets tiring. I mean, why.
So those are the reasons I am completely converted to Uber. Sorry.
