    What?  Are you guys serious?  It's a nickname for

    Food + Uber = FUber.  It's any service like UberEats and Postmates. 

    Examples:

    "I really want Taco Bell but they don't deliver"

    "Dude just call a Fuber"

      You, sir, are correct.  There seems to be lots of peolpe who are confused.

      To be honest, I didn't know that F was for Food.  I thought it was a nickname for Postmates who deliver goods.  "F*cked up Uber."

        So, the big question remains...  Is it a derogatory?  Is it simply Food Uber?  or is it like "F**** Up Food Uber"?

        I am just trying to use it correctly.  LOL.

    It's F*cked up Uber.  It's a derogatory name for Uber, because they are messed up.

      That's what I always thought it was.  Is it actually Food Uber?  Much more innocent than I previously thought.

    The "FU" part is an acronym combined with the name of Uber.

    It's a nickname for Uber.

    Plus from that movie with Matt Damon.

      Fubar

      Fubar is slang (mangled German) for the word "Furchtbar" which means terrible or horrible -- Think of it as the opposite of "Wunderbar." Furcht means fear, literally translated, and the "bar" is added to make it an adverb or noun, as the case may be. Notice that "Wunderbar" translates literally into wonderful. By contrast, you should treat Furchtbar as an idiom and translate it to mean terrible or horrible.

        In the military FUBAR means F***UpBeyondRepair.

        But I like Mboscoreelli answer. 

        I drive for Uber but never FUBER.
