There are no hard rule on this as every case is different. Just do what makes sense under commonsense.
We are all in this together.
I am afraid to google this one (I mean, heaven forbid my wife finds out), but I am sure it exists! Just type it in and see!
I tip like $5 for a regular order of $40 or so. For anything less, like a $20 breakfast bagel, I just round up to the next 5. (so like $3?)
I don't do it by percentage. Just a few bucks for the delivery fee. Sort of what people do (I think) for pizza and chinese delivery guys.
Gut checking indeed. Will this botched IPO negatively affect Uber's IPO. Me thinks yes.
The left is taking over. It’s all socialism from this point.
Public Uber will be full of idealistic BS and this is just one example. It’s the mentality of making everyone happy and majoring failing.
Alright, I will bite. What kind of car do you have?
Then why do televisions have to blur out people’s faces unless they have permissions?
Oh is it because the footage is being used for commercial purposes?
Why be so secretive? Let's let the public decide and find out how awesome it is.
Don't know. Tell us. :)
yeah, I was thinking of this as well. I used to hear riders who would cancel repeatedly and Uber had to implement this special rule.
Cancelling usually doesn't have much consequence on the riders (or I supposed drivers too) because the ratings aren't affected. There are no mechanisms in place now though. Long distance pickup, must cancel beffore 2 minutes, can't cancel repeatedly...
I suppose the context and background story do play a role here. I agree I empathize with her and why she does that.
In a case like this though, I would imagine she should (and probably does) arrange for special rides from those who she trusts or a female limo driver whom she has relationship with.
If you were driving an Uber, I'd imagine it was an exception, where she had was in a circumstance she had to call for one. I mean I can't imagine her doing this every time.
sorry, wrong thread. not sure what happened here. i dont know how to delete on this forum.
well, let's be real. robotaxis will put us all out of business.
I feel like that's gender discrimination. Seems wrong.
This actually brings up a great question. Do riders have an "acceptance rate" or cancellation rates? I feel like this is bad practice. Inconveniences a lot of drivers.
I used to think it was tacky, but I also understand the position of the drivers and how little they get paid. I will do my part to tip and if they need to educate others by having a tip box, I am okay with that. All power to them.
I will admit though. Most people are confused the fact there are tip jars, because there is already a tip option in the Uber app. Keen minds suspect that there must be something. Maybe tips on Uber app is taxed, or something, but perhaps if you can share with us why drivers prefer tip jar over Uber app (I am assuming), that'd be nice.
Lyft's help site says this:
At a minimum, a "weapon" includes any form of firearm. There are many items that could be considered weapons besides firearms, such as handguns, stun guns, explosives, knives, sling shots and tasers. Lyft reserves sole judgment on what else may constitute a "weapon." If you have any questions about whether various items could be considered a "weapon" under this policy, please contact Lyft Support before bringing any questionable items onto Lyft property.
So, basically anything.
Isn't this a system account managed by the administrators? It just collects and displays the anonymous questions asked by users who didn't leave a name.
What a sharp question. This is actually a tough one for smokers.
We obviously don't smoke in our cars when we are on a shift. That's just plain suicide. So we smoke on breaks, outside of the car, etc.
The problem? I would be smoking in a park or pulled off to the side of the road, and then I get a ping. I have to respond, and there's always the residual smell that sticks. I actually do not have a good response to this one, as I've actually gotten negative feedback on Lyft's "Ways to Improve"
