LOL. Yeah she'd be all waiting for me to figure out who she was... and I'd be all like trying to make small talk. "So do you drive for uber full time?"
LOL. what a laugh. If all these drivers are making 200K a month, guess what. They ain't gonna be driving. This business is doomed to fail.
I always laugh when I see all the hype about AVs. They tested in Phoenix, and did great! Almost ready for prime time! It's like... yeah, phoenix. Does it even rain there? 😂
They are locked in a never ending battle to the bottom with Lyft, and Didi and Ola are on the horizon as well. It's hard to see how they become profitable any time soon. It's really just a matter of who can hang on the longest, but with investors continuing to shovel money into the black holes of these companies, who knows. Could be a long while.
Not a mechanic but know a bit about cars. Starting an engine cold is hard but if it's warm already, no big deal. The pistons are all oiled up already, etc.
So I wouldn't worry about it. I'm sure the engineers that designed these systems considered it, and they have an interest in building reliable cars.
Yeah, I mean, there's some weird gray areas. If you're in a car, driving down the road, are you in a public space? What if someone films you from the car next to you? What if you have tinted windows? Or, what if you're in a convertible?
Wouldn't an uber car technically be considered a public space? It's not illegal right? Just against Uber's policy. I guess that makes sense.
I hear ya. It's like Lord of the Flies out there. I get depressed thinking about it sometimes too 😔
There was a great Black Mirror episode that takes this whole idea to the extreme. "Nosedive". It's kind of funny, in a horrifying way... Here is a little trailer:
Interesting... well, I see your points, but I guess I also kind of accept that this is the world we live in now. A world of likes and dislikes and ratings. I'm not saying I like it, actually I think I kinda hate it, but it's not going anywhere anytime soon 😟
well, 4.8 is pretty good. Some drivers just don't like to give out good ratings. Dont' ask me why. It sounds like you are doing ok though.
Serious question: aren't policies like this usually only applicable to pets -- don't service animals fall under different rules/laws? Or does it depend on the company? Not having a service animal I am not sure how it works.
As stupid as these parents are, we shouldn't really be surprised. It's sad but a fact of life. Breaks my heart to see kids treated so carelessly. You did the right thing in not taking them.
Yeah that car is completely disgusting. Unprofessional.
Sounds like this driver needs to not be a driver anymore, if you ask me.
Never had this happen, but it seems like a no-brainer that Uber should have just refunded you and eaten the loss. It's not like you're trying to rip them off repeatedly, it's obviously a one time thing and the goodwill would come back to them many fold. Uber sucks so bad at customer service.
Looks like Uber is there. Here is an example fare
"I can't hear you, I'm still blind" LOL
Ummm... how exactly are they going to verify this. I don't get it. Do they come and put a lock on my ignition.
Little engine that could...
