Now you can't see UberPool requests as Pool because they removed that feat.
This is my first post, but I've been driving with Uber since February. Recently, while driving Friday night, I took a fare to downtown, to a comedy club. The whole way there, he kept trying to get me to stop driving for the night, and go to the show with him like on a date. I figured he was just joking around so I joked back, and said Thanks, but No, and That I was already taken. But that didn't stop him!! I even said I hope you meet someone nice there. . But it so happened that I ended up driving him home from The Comedy Club as well. And during the entire trip he kept trying to get me to touch him in some way, or kiss him in some way. Yes I have been flirted with, but I don't take it seriously, and mostly Joking around or complimentary, not rude or violent. Or just goofing, and having a good time. I've never been assaulted, or made uncomfortable with any of these gestures, until this one. He refused to exit my car if I didn't give him a kiss. What is a good way to deal with...
In the recent history of the world, there hasn't been a Company more ethically challenged than Uber, or more hated by the very workforce that allows it to exist.
I believe the views of the members on this forum reflect the overall feeling around the world of all Uber Drivers... It's always interesting to see the same exact concerns, and gripes from all over the US coast-to coast as well as from Europe, Asia, or Australia.
So, please take a minute or 2 and pick your top 3 choices of what you hate most about driving on the Uber platform.
Uber is scraping the bottom of the barrel right now in luring in more and more drivers to join the platform but keeping them on the road is an entirely different story. Sooner or later, they will come to realize that the only way they can keep existing is by taking better care of the drivers they already have instead of continuing to recruit a new army every week .
In the hope that the Uber Monitors on this forum take your...
I'm tired of being practical and would love a new car. I've been thinking about buying a Mercedes Cla class and then signing up for uber part time to pay it off monthly. I'm already a contractor for the U.S. Postal service and I live right next door, so no mileage going to work every day. Do you think this is a good idea? I just want to make $500 at the minimum every month. Second, how many hours would I have to work to reach my goal? And how much wear and tear (mileage) would it put on my vehicle?
Edit: To clarify, I'm a sub-contractor and I don't use my own vehicle working for the post office. I make $36k -42k a year
I picked up a female rider this morning in the wee hours. Firstly she had placed the pin on the other side of the neighborhood from where she actually was. When she called I could hear her slurring through the phone as she tried to clarify her location. I finally located her and got her into the car.
When I verified the destination address she had put into the app (which was obviously a residence) she said she had changed her mind and gave me the address of a strip club she had left her car at instead. Since it was 4 in the morning, I was pretty sure the place was not open. I inquired if she was meeting someone there and she said she was going to get her car and drive home (around 15 miles from the club).
I spent pretty much the entire ride trying to convince her that this was a terrible idea. I mentioned the possibility of DUI, hurting herself or someone else and was quickly dismissed with a "oh I have been doing this for over 8 years. It will be fine."
It really bothered me...
