oh, wait. I am in CA. Sorry.
I am Orange county too!
Free food and free entry brought the entire community in. SPouses and kids too.
I take like 22 Uber rides are week, and I have never had any driver ask me anything. They just pull up and we go.
This is in LA.
I am a weekender and part-time. I like Uber because I can work minimal hours whenever I want to. I have a primary job I go to and only drive for Uber when I feel like it. or need extra cash.
I think it'd be detrimental if my employer could dictate when and how long I work. That would be it for me.
Uber will lose most of these "drive when I can" folks. Clear as bell.
Right. The precedence will be set. Scary
Yes, you can. You can drive for either one. You use the same driver app, but you can choose which service you want to handle.
It's as granular as UberX vs UberSUV.
All of them speak in such extremes and they fail to see anything gray or anything that doesn’t agree with them.
The world is a complicated place with a lot of gray. They don’t understand that.
People are starving for various reasons and they just say, “why don’t they work?”
I once refused service to two naked dudes in roller blades.
Where? Manhattan Beach, of course.
There aren't that many laws that can prevent drivers from denying service, I don't think. Maybe race, religion and gender?
Lyft has a community guideline, so technically, anyone who breaks this you should be able to refuse a ride. At the least Lyft will back you up if you are following the rules mentioned here.
Not become one.
Yes, that’s exactly what it is.
And yes, the drama is enjoyable. Like reality tv but more real
That's for Lyft, right? I don't think there is a separate section for Uber.
Dudes apparently cannot be discriminated against apparently.
Not just gender but everything else. None in power can be discriminated against. The funny thing is? I think it sort of has to be that way while we all fix this long running history of discrimination. Think affirmative action for school acceptance and white people being called "crackers."
I don't do Pool rides. I can't be competing with $1.75 city buses and subways. No thanks.
Yeah, this usually comes in the indirect form. It's usually built into the questions they ask and how they treat service providers.
You know that saying, "if you want to know the truth about your date, watch how he [or she] treats the waitor"? It's because some people are curt and rude to people who provide for us. I don't know why this happens. The truth bleeds out.
I have seen that in my colleagues and even those who I considered as friends.
No, I haven't heard of that but I know in San Francisco there's been a crap storm over this for many months. They may already be employees by now.
There are pros and cons on being an employee though. Benefit packages, insurance, and stuff will be nice. However, we will likely lose a lot of freedom in deciding when and where we work, ability to cancel and pick which driver you want, tax breaks you get from being self-employed, etc. etc.
I keep both my iPhone and iPad on. The calls and texts go to the iPhone number on profile. iPad does it’s own thing, basically for directions.
Lots of GPS related posts in the last few days.
You may want to update your phone. My old iPad that’s affixed to my dash has a little delay in my location and telling me the turns a tad too late.
It turns out that my iPad was too old and too slow for the recent heavy GPS apps. I tried the same apps on my newer iPhone, side by side with my iPad, and realized the problem.
So considering updating the hardware. I know it’s not an expense you want, but...
Also, Uber recently updated their GPS and how it works. Maybe that exacerbated the problem
apparently, we cannot. Try doing a search for vomit on this site. you get like a million articles.
