I had about 25 pings today. One was a 5 star (probably their 1st ride). The rest of the ratings ranged from a 4.1 to 4.51. I did take an XL 45 min trip, although I didnt see the rating initially. I pulled up to a young teenager, his young sister, and his younger brother plus 4 suitcases, 4 backpacks, and a bag. Mom & dad didnt come out until we were loaded and ready to go. Took them to airport and the subject of ratings came up. He asked what his was and I replied "it cant be bad or I wouldnt of accepted" and just smiled.  I pull it up and it was a 4.51 not the worst but not that good either. That was a rough one to try to get out of. Lol I said I've seen much worse drivers can be tuff with the ratings.I also said drivers would lose their job with that rating:)  He just laughed. I did tell them to have a safe flight and he had a nice family. However I did get a 10.00 tip on the app. The rest of the day nothing over 4.5. WTH is Uber doing. I thought they were deactivating these riders? Probably dont deactivate them until they are at a 2.0. UBER STOP sending me all these low rated pax on Tuesdays. Get rid of Trashy Tuesdays please!

    OP, that's definitely not from the UBER site, someone did a nice Photoshop job on a Facebook group. Would be a great April fools joke for drivers. 😆

    IMO, if you're an "UberPro," you get worse rated passengers than "partners."  It's assumed that as a "Pro" you've got more skin in the game and are stuck in the chase to keep up your accept rates, so you're forced to take the badly rated passengers. Partners get better rated passengers to entice them to keep driving.

      UberPro is a joke as everything else Uber does. UberPro diamond means that the driver accepts every crap ping they're sent. In fact only newbies fall for UberPro status since no veteran will be able to keep a 85-90% AR.

      I dont qualify for Uber Pro. My rating and cancellation rate qualifies but my acceptance rate is always below 35%.

    WHAT? Wait is this a joke or a real thing?! I truly cannot comprehend what is happening here. Why would Uber do this and at the same time poke fun at the riders by calling it "trashy Tuesday"? This is nuts if it is real.

      I was being sarcastic. As I stated in the post all my request were low rated riders yesterday hence my made up "Trashy Tuesday" promo. I was just sharing my frustration in hopefully a fun way. I try not to be negative and mean. I don't mean the riders themselves are trashy but their ratings. What I have learned over the past 12 mths is many low rated passengers are rated by drivers unfairly. As much as drivers hate when they get a low rating for stupid issues drivers do the same to riders. However there are times riders and drivers alike deserve their low rating. Slamming a drivers accidentally or not tipping (unless you go above & beyond) shouldnt be a reason to 1, 2, 3 star a passenger. I have to say that 98% low rated riders I have picked up have been no issue for me and quite a few have tipped 20% or more. So it leaves me to believe drivers are being really picky, impatient, or unfair. Sucks for the rider as well as drivers because I am declining rides at times...

I started rejecting rides with ratings under a 4.8. I've since lowered it to a 4.5 but only in certain areas (have picked up a few at 4.47). On a weekend night after 10pm depending on the area I will not pick up below a 4.8. 

        Sorry for the confusion. I know Uber has come out with some ridiculous things so I now understand where this post may have made people think Uber was yet again being ridiculous:) Hope at least it made you smile:)

      I will go to a 4.50 if I am in a certain area that I usually drive and its a 45+. I know exactly why they have low ratings most if the time and it has to do with tipping. It sucks because I'll take them wether they tip or not. Some business men get a little controlling with directions but that dont bother me. If these other drivers  (especially female drivers) knew how to handle these business men they would get tipped. I am not talking about low cut shirts, cleavage, short shorts, or certain favors so get your mind outta the gutter. Lol 😀 I am too old for these young business men. They dont want to see me in short shorts or low cut shirt. Lol I ask what they do and show an interest in their business, ask questions, show interest, they live ti brag & be complimented. Compliment them on how smart they are, their ideas are great, blah blah blah and 85%/90% tip but yet they all have low ratings. Probably because men drive them and the rider dont tip so they are rated low. ...

My driver friend is a male, drives the same area, same type of people. I get tipped more times than he does by these business types but he is very nice, accomodating, great driver. Its all in how you handle these dudes when body gets too old to use it you need to find other ways lol. Nah. just joking most are smart and I love learning new things so most times they are interesting.

      If you read the comments you will see this is not a real thing:) Instead of ranting about my crappy day with low rated passengers I was just trying to make light of it.

    Had a bad day with nothing but low rated ride request. Rather than post a rant I tried to lighten it up. I apologize to those who may have thought Uber was adding more ridiculous things to their app. This is not a real promotion from Uber. I see how some may have thought I took a screenshot of the promotion from Ubers site.  That was me making a mistake & being lazy. I took a screenshot of my own post (the mistake) before I deleted it so I could just add it & not have to redo it:) Sorry for the confusion:)
