    Unfortunately it does happen. Not saying its right but drivers can wait up to 2 hrs for a ride and get ride that 4 min up the road for 3.25. I get both sides of it. There are drivers that like long trips and some like short if Uber and Lyft would let drivers know where the passenger is going it may be avoided. If U and L gave drivers better rates it would help also. What it comes down to yes there are shitty drivers out there, U and L cheat the drivers and charged riders based on longest distance. Drivers usually take shortest distance & time. Who gets that $ when driver gets rider there 10 min earlier? Rider dont get it back and driver dont get it Uber and Lyft take it. Thats upfront pricing. Both companies charging more by basing it on longest route. Uber and Lyft piss drivers off for lying, cheating, stealing  which causes drivers to have to do some of the things they do (not saying its right) which then pisses rider off.  In the end Uber and Lyft drive a wedge betw...

I hate short rides.  It's not always easy to figure out if its a short ride especially at AP but if I accept a ride I take it. I dont call rider ever and ask. Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. Where are you located? What Airport. I know it stinks but all drivers are not like this. I would rather do a long trip they can keep the short ones.

    @ScottCarroll I can understand the outrage that you feel by having to wait a few extra minutes for your ride to start.  Drivers feel that way all the time when we have to wait for our passengers to show up curbside for pickup.  

    A couple of weeks ago I got a ride request at the airport.  Upon picking the person up, I found that they were headed 45 miles south of the airport.  (90% of rides head north, and 10% south)  I explained to the guy that I had to cancel the trip, and like you, he got mad.  I'm sorry that waiting an extra minute or two hindered his plans, but I had a doctor's appointment north of town, which would have been fine for 90% of trips, but it just wouldn't work for that one.  For the sake of expediency, should I have just taken the $45 trip and missed my appointment that I waited 3 months for?  (and pay the $25 late cancel fee)

    My thoughts are this...  we're RIDESHARE drivers, not taxi drivers.   I'll gladly share my ride with you under most circumstances, but there are times when things just don't work out.   Rideshare usually requires a little bit of flexibility .  If you absolutely can't wait and must be picked up NOW, a taxi may be better suited for your needs.
