I had a passenger climb in the back with a laptop in tow. She was laboriously typing away with the hunt and peck skills of a novice. I asked her what she was typing and she responded "resume". A few minutes of silence passed and she looked confused, peering at the keyboard and sighing deep sighs of frustration. I asked her what was the problem. She responded, the app says "Press any key to continue" and I have looked over this keyboard a hundred times and I swear I don't see an "ANY" key. "Do you know which one ...

Shares ended the day more than 8 percent higher, at about $78 per share.The initial public offeringOpens a New Window. (IPO) one of the most highly anticipated of the year after pricing ...
Customers cannot rate them until a ride is complete, meaning that if the trip never starts or a ride is cancelled, they cannot be rated. Drivers take advantage of this to scam their riders. The driver doesn't want to do the ride for any reason at all? Cancel! The driver doesn't like your destination? Cancel!The driver doesn't like your face as he approaches you? Cancel!Oh, he wants to still collect a cancellation fee? Sure! Just anger the passenger until he himself cancels! Then you get to collect 70% of a $5 cancellation fee!This is ...
When Uber first began, it made the ride “all inclusive”. In fact they made great effort to tell people they didn’t have to tip. Fast forward years later, when the greed of Uber/Lyft and their distribution of the ride share monies became so dismal, first Lyft then Uber added the tipping to the app. It was an effort to give the driver more money without it taking from their revenue.
I don’t know why people are so hesitant and chintzy when it come to tipping Uber/Lyft drivers. They willingly tip taxis, hairdressers, restaurant wait staff, doormen ...
What should I do??Fair Leasing is working with Uber but they appear to be a scam operation. Last year they took $853.14 from checking account. I didn't even have a car lease or account with them! I have been in contact with them for two weeks trying to resolve this issue. The CA office says they don't see a record of the five withdraws from my checking account. The AZ office which used to be Xchange leasing is now (I suppose hard to get a clear answer) Fair Leasing part of Fair Leasing in CA. I ...
I heard from multiple drivers that things were better under Travis. Is this a common perception held by drivers?Some of the comments I heard were that Travis understood what rideshare was about and how Dara is all about the IPO and turning a profit.Is this a "grass is always greener" phenomenon? or is there some validity behind this?
I came up with this. What do you think?
5⭐️ Keep this driver on the road.
4⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, but we’ll forgive them this time.
3⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, strike 1 out of 3.
2⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, and this is the final warning, strike 2 out of 3.
1⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated NOW!
What passengers think:
5⭐️ This is the best ride I’ve ever had! I only want this driver to drive me. (A)
4⭐️ Pretty good, but I’ve had better. (B)
3⭐️ Just an average ride ...
Its freezing here in Philly. My Honda Pilot is black but now decorated with white spots and splashes. I've tried waterless car wash spray. It helps but its too cold to stand outside to use it. Can you please share what you use during the winter months? Or can you take it somewhere to be washed where your doors and windows will not be frozen shut? To make it more difficult if you have such a place, is it expensive?
I didn't learn to drive until I was 22. A year later I was behind the wheel of a cab. That's not how it's usually done in America. Most kids couldn't wait to turn 16 and get their learner's permit. Driving has been sold as freedom in this country ever since the advent of the automobile but it's slowly starting to change. And that's a very good thing.
Growing up in a city with public transportation, learning to drive never crossed my mind. A train, bus, bike or—most often—my own two ...
