I don't ever remember getting charged this fee, but everyone talks about it like it's a big deal.   What gives?

    What's the big deal?  Shouldn't Uber have the right to collect some fees?  They are not a charity.

      I think the problem is that they already collect % commissions on top of the fare.  So this is on top of it.  It's a portion of the fare that the driver doesn't get credit for.  That's the grey part of this.
