    Many of these can be attributed to the expectation misalignment. Remember that Uber Blacks used to be pitched as Everyone's Private Driver. If it's my private driver, I'd expect to have some freedom like listening to my music, talking on the phone, letting the driver wait, or drive around not having a destination.

      Good point, but some of these are illegal and go against common courtesy. (e.g. violating driver's personal space or being belligerent drunk) The drivers aren't getting paid for those types of behaviors.

      The critical word in their old taglin is "Everyone's." You wouldn't treat your library books in the same way you treat your own. :)

    Do people really give 1 star reviews for no reason at all? I can understand how some riders have misconstrued the rating system and might give 3 or 4 stars just because, but giving a 1 star rating for absolutely no reason at all seems a bit out there...but who knows maybe it really does happen?

      I think it's time you found another patch to look for your fares.  Go uptown.
