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.
I listen to podcast.
Ever since my wife got me a FitBit, I try to get steps. Park somewhere (if not in a city) and walk around the block.
and I resist the urge to play phone games. waste of time and money.
Well, 3-star rating is pretty bad as you (the driver) will never be matched up with that rider. In a small town, this is a big deal! :)
It’s super localized. It’s mostly first time user sign ups which may not be helpful for most. $10-35.
Then there are cases where they partner with Do not drink and drive campaigns.
Carry a simple spray bottle like a "mister". Spray a few times between rides and you are all set.
Even those Febreeze things is fine too.
Couldn’t agree more. I’ve done the same.
However I understand that the umbrella coverages are not be available for everyone, like those with a few driving violations for speeding. I found out this recently.
Good ol' Miguel.
It seems pretty much a given that most drivers play games on their phones. Not a healthy habit, I tell you.
Every one in a while you hear about passengers catching drivers playing while they are in middle of a trip. I am not saying it's ok...but I get it. Tough to put it down and what if it's not a good spot to stop? LOL.
Good tip. Thank you.
I keep reading about how Uber is "making up" fares in the name of upfront pricing and to secretly steal what should be a surge fare from the drivers. So I feel if I deviate from the original route, the fare calculation gets wanky.
though, it looks like I would be helping my customers if the fare does end up changing, because if I changed the route and the fare had to be recalculated, it would be under an honest distance/rate charge Uber should be charging always.
I do stress the customers thinking I took a longer route though. I suppose that shouldn't happen as long as I am using a decent gps app.
Yes, I actually get this 1 out of every 15~20 rides. Fairly common. In various forms though.
