    There’s a lot I want them to know, but I’m not sure if I got thing I don’t want them to know. 

    I definitely don’t want them to know about the previous passenger who was obviously a working girl with no underwear?

    How Uber and Lyft rarely performs background check on driver’s criminal record? Only in some states,  I believe. 

    Driver record, yes. Different story for criminal.

      This is scary coming from a driver.

      I actually heard somewhere that when someone gets out of prison, the guards and counselors suggest they go driver Uber (historically taxis).  It makes sense. The job interview is with your app and you speak to no one.  (And no criminal check)

    Oh what about how the surge sticks with the driver who came from a busy area?  The surge is dependent on where the driver was before picking you up. This is regardless of where you, a rider, actually is.

    So depending on where the driver is from, you could be changing completely different prices.

      Surge sticks with the driver but if you end up picking up a rider after the surge or in non surge area the rider does not pay that. Uber actually ends up eating that on their end.

        I. Never. Knew. That. 

        My conscience has been lifted. Thank you. I always assumed they were paying the surge. Perhaps I should be paying a closer attention to the payout details.  

        Do you have an example of the ride  you can post here?  At first glance, I can’t find it on my app.

          I don't have one handy as the last time it happened was a couple hundred rides ago! Lol. I'll keep an eye out for another one and post it.

    Maybe individual drivers have things they do that they dont want riders to know but I cannot think of anything at all. Nothing to hide:)

    How sometimes we get double compensated on tolls? On some routes, the customer pays for the driver to return on that bridge or tunnel.  However, if we have another customer on the return, we can get paid twice. 

    Pretty minor. I will come up with something more.

        Hahaha.  True. Yeah, maybe I should watch my words.

        not much room for riders to argue though.

    Not to be mean but we make fun of a lot of our riders to our friends and family. Be careful what you say or do in my backseat. 😂

    We actually do not mind waiting for you (during pickup) because we get paid for the time waiting after the first 2 minutes. Assuming it isn't a busy night, of course.

      I mind waiting .25 per min is so not worth it.  Could've got a better request in that amount of time. Could've lost a surged ride in that time. I hate waiting on ruders. Riders used to apologize not much anymore.

    I complain about short rides, but I really don't mind that much as long as the pickup was quick.
