Too many people think they can actually move in an uber.
and every one of them says or at least thinks, "well, what the hell am i supposed to do?
Yeah this pretty much defeats the purpose of an on-demand service. If you need 7 more minutes, just request a car 7 minutes later. Another driver who is available at that time would come pick you up.
They are so behind on this. I heard UberEats saved Uber from collapsing when the pandemic hit.
With everything that Lyft does, where they copy Uber's business model, I am surprised they haven't offered it already. They didn't diversify like Uber did. If this were a few years ago, they would have been able to acquire one of these food delivery businesses, but probably not anymore. GrubHub can probably buy them instead.
Bathroom is a big one. This may fall under "safety", but finding a bathroom is a hardship for Uber drivers.
Male drivers can go in the bushes, pee in bottles, and those dirty gas stations bathrooms up the dark alley. For females, many of these options are not possible.
This is 100% true. Using the messaging only yields canned copy/paste responses, especially when it comes to deactivation issues.
Uber Connect use to be the referral service for Uber, I think. Connecting people to people and businesses to people. I guess they rebranded it. M
They also call things differently in different countries. So maybe it’s that? I don’t see how you’d use this delivery service though.
It is supposed be in the same app?
I second this. It falls into the same category as the weather conversation. I don't know about other drivers, but I am an introvert and do not enjoy the interactions with customers and the obligated small talk. This is one topic I can speak to comfortably. Don't mind at all.
There is a derivation to this question though, which is, "Where do you live? Where are you coming from?" I am sure they mean no harm, but it's sort of a personal question.
Haha, this is so real.
I too used to be insecure and freak out when people ask, “been doing this a long time?” Me: “Umm...me? Why do you ask? Is it that obvious?”
I am all for being paid for the time I work.
Love the thought of certainty during the pick up. Seriously, I hate that time when I am on my way for pickup.
Two hours is a long time. I'd take B.
Experienced drivers know when it'll be slow though.
Not sure about the canceling thing. You are affecting the riders while the purpose of the strike is to send a customer to Uber. Let's not inconvenience the consumers who is not at fault for the mess Uber has created.
Stand strong. You did the right thing. You gotta have pride in what you do.
The good news about the world? Most people are very good and these jerks are few and far between. We all get our one-star ratings sometimes, but we will squash them with all other 5-star ratings!
Let me get this clear. You think it's fraud because you rush over to a surge area and you don't get pinged? Maybe other drivers rushed over, and their "algorithm" offered them the ride - maybe they have better ratings than you do?
Also what would Uber get from that? Creating these "fake demands"?
I feel like the honeymoon period just ended when they went (and about to go) public.
They were paying us all inflated prices to get us all hooked and get the word out. Now they did, they are going to and already have slashed the pay. The reality is settling in now.
There are bunch of Facebook communities but they are all full of whiny rideshare drivers. It's completely depressing. They all turn on each other too.
So this Uber Support may be about you?
I appreciate your sense of humor. :)
I don't even bother cleaning the exterior. Why bother. Many of my friends swear by car washes that wash the underside so the salt and grime won't harm them, but I haven't done any of it.
I feel like my customers would understand if my door is dirty upon getting in. Hey, we are all from the northeast. Then again, I feel my ratings could be higher too.
You sure you wanna buy?
See.. they can do this crap, because Uber thinks we all drive for fun in our spare time. It's like a cute little punishment. Like taking away your pass at the local arcade or ski mountain to teach the children to behave.
They have no idea that people make a living on their platform, and decisions like these can affect real lives and families.
I thought California decided that we were all employees.
