    I had an XL ride ladt week with 6 riders. We were a few blocks from destination and I missed a turn. I made s U turn and 3 of the riders tell me to let them out there. I apologized for missing turn but at this point I assume they are annoyed. That was not the case. Apparently one of the men in the back had to use the bathroom so bad he was afeaid he wouldnt make it. Guess he rather shit his pants walking the street then in an Uber. No clean up fee in the street. I never seen someone get out of my 3rd row of seats so damn fast. They did tip me 10.00 on the app. He didnt smell or leave skid marks lol. 

    Last night had a young 20 something guy who was very drunk. We were talking about people throwing up then it got very quiet and he farted . I didnt say anything 30 secs later he says "damn I just farted in an Uber but at least I didnt throw up". He apologized and passed out until I woke him up when we got to destination. Thankfully he didnt smell.

    About 5am this morning had the walk of shame ride. Young girl early 20's gets in. She has a light up tu tu on. Apparently she had stockings under it but they disappeared at some point. I had no idea she was sitting bare ass on my seat until we were 30 secs from her house. She proceeds to tell me she cancelled 7 drivers until she got me. She said she didnt want a creepy guy. Lol It was probably a good idea not to get a guy thats just a problem waiting to happen. I still dont know how she is walking through her front door and explaining herself to her parents. .BTW I did scrub down the seat and spray lysol.

    I am a driver.  My passive aggressive way of handling is exclaiming, "Did something die back there?"

        It's amazing how many jerk offs uber and lyft manage to dig up from the sewer because there were far less in a traditional taxi.

    You, sir, are an asshole for farting in someone's workplace.  You must be the type to fart in an elevator upon leaving.  Shame on you.

    Uber might reduce the fee if you fight it, have you written to them?

    How would any driver prove this?  I would dispute this with Uber  

    ...plus, what if farting is a medical condition?

    If we want to settle this debate, and you want us to weigh in, we need to drill down into what kind of fart it was.  Silent killer? Diarrhea Thunder?  Gentle Puff?  Hot and Stanky or Violent rainforest?

    @dailyjoe.  You must have left a streak on the fabric.  (#3 on the severity list)  Bravo for requiring detailing.  You must have made your driver proud.

    "Severity"?  that's hilarious.  

    Why don't you just blame the driver.  His word against your word.

      Yeah, I've totally heard that.  These drivers are sitting there all day, so they have trouble finding time to relieve themselves.  So, I heard the hush hush rule is they FART when there are more than one passenger.

      Get it?  That way, the passengers blame each other.

    I think you should just man up and pay. The fee goes to the driver anyways and how woudl you like to sit in someone elses stink for the rest of your day!

      I for once had a gentleman requesting a uber pool outvof Ohare. Gentleman got in my car and after the yrip staryes something started to stink really bad. Usuallyvi do not pickup pools since i drive an explorer and mostly do XL or plus. I had asked him where he was going prior to starting the drive. He reluctantly gave me the address and insisted that i put him on trip. I hesitated but finally gave him. The stench lasted the duration of the trip and did not go away for 3 to 4 days  After the rider got to his destination,  he told me he was himself a uber driver. He had traveled to some place in Nigeria where he was given some food that he brought back to the states. When i complained to uber, they asked me for a picture and on top of that rider gave me a 1 star rating for complaining . How do you take picture of a bad odor?

      If i did not put him on trip, I could have kicked himvout the minute the foul odor started to spread

    You got off easy with a $100 fee.  If it were me, I'd have locked the windows in the "up position," locked all doors, then gassed you back until you turned green.  (plus grab the $100 fee) 

    Why do people always think that because we drive for Uber we're not entitled to the least bit of common courtesy and respect?

    Well if you stank up the driver's car and made it "unusable" for awhile then I totally get this. You made that driver lose out on valuable driving time, you should pay them for that.

      I totally disagree with this. Just open the windwos. Seriously, $100 for farting is ridiculous!
