I am done picking up at grocery stores. I get it that people who don't have cars have to go get food but it just does not work for us drivers.
I just had this couple who had bags after bags of groceries - like 30, probably because they can't make it to the store that often. I was horrified as I pulled up of two shopping carts full of stuff, including three cases of beers and liquor. Then they had the gull to tell me they have conditions and that I need to help them. She was morbidly obese and he was on a walker which I had to also fold and put into the front seat. Well, I too have back problems from an accident with a semi a few years ago, and this is not what i signed up for.
When we got to their house it was a trailer house - and they once asked me to carry the groceries to their porch. then they proceeded to move very slowly obviously accentuating their disabilities and making sure i knew that they were in no condition to carry them. To an uber driver time is money, so I start helping, just thinking i need to get these people out of the car but what really ticked me off is that this is what they expect out of drivers, any drivers, i think. i wasted 20 minutes on this couple carrying stuff they should be able to carry. no i am not your chauffer and a butler.
and of course they didn't tip. not at all. I also think I made like $7.
i am done. see how drivers are taken advantages of? i *had* to help them because they basically took my car hostage.
