STOP asking for stops without making the changes in the app!

Why does this happen all the time? Uber is absolutely clear that you are to include additional destinations.

    You're in the wrong line of work. I'd recommend something with little or no human interaction.

    It’s definitely SO rude. People think we are a free personal driver. They never tip when I make extra stops so I just repeat, put it in the app. Sure I’ll stop, put it in the app. Oh you need macdonalds? Sure, put it in the app. Oh you want to pick up extra friends? Put it in the app. Oh you want to go get beer but you didn’t add your home address as the return point? Well call another Uber at the liquor store OR PUT IT IN THE APP.

    All drivers need to repeat this otherwise we are all driving people around free. O don’t know who these retards are acting like it’s wrong to expect people to pay for the use of our car but they can go F their self with a shovel.

    I’ve basically started just canceling and refusing people that “forget where they live” and all these other games they play. I only go to the address in the app so either get your SH together or get the F out of the car

    Maybe she doesn't like human interactions. Don't want to talk to her customers.  App communications only.

    From what I can tell, the rider apps make it hard to add a stop.  It only lets you tack on a new end, but not a stop in the middle?

      I’ve noticed that also. That the app doesn’t let stops be added in. I basically make the person update the app after I took them to the first place. They just keep updating as I drive them around. Don’t drive anybody free. Tell them to exit the trip and update the address as you make the stops. Otherwise you are driving strangers around free and they don’t give a SH about you. So charge them.

    What's the circumstances are you referring to?  Like when they ask you to stop at a mini mart or picking up a friend?

    That happens quite often. You must be pretty stressed if that bothers you so much.

    Those are your paying customers you are referring to. Where's your sense of service?

    Is this entitlement?  Is this your misunderstanding that you will get paid less?  Is this your hatred for all who ride your cars?

      I do my job well, and I do my part.  I do what is asked of me, and they should do the same.

      With the flat rate pricing that Uber is impleneting, stops don't net me more money, but makes me lose money.  My understanding is that the only way the stop will be reflected is the pax logs it in the Uber app.

        wait, you might have a point here.

        but let me go over this to make sure. When routes are changed and stops are made, the prices are supposed to be reflected in the fare. Upfront pricing is no more.  The fare is recalculated for the new distance and duration driven.

        With that said, I suppose it's a small stop or the route isn't too affected, I am not sure how Uber app handles it.  I really have no idea what's going on anymore.
