Uber On


Best Driver

Desert DriverDesert Driver for hanging in there while navigating circular reasoning with Uber CSR's. Kuddos for your tenacity! It paid off! We are hoping you started a trend. http://uberpeople.net/threads/the-final-word-yes-uber-will-remove-unfair-ratings.18913/

Best Noob

LJ7006LJ7006 for recognizing the potential of driving, enjoying his first Pax's and reaching out to the Herd for advice and tips early on once he bumped into some legit concerns. We think you'll do just fine, Kid! http://uberpeople.net/threads/first-night-as-uber-driver-good-and-bads.18917/

Uber Failures

Worst Driver
This week's Worst Driver Award is a tie between to Profilers: One for Pax's age and one for Pax's race. Congratualtions! You're both Uber Failures!

UberFocusUberFocus seems to think that the over 50 crowd is the New Old and are "shitty customers." @CasualHabersasher reminded UberFauxPas that they should rethink their career choice. We think UberFauxPas should check their diaper while they're at it. http://uberpeople.net/threads/bad-news-old-people-are-starting-to-use-uber.18905/

d'Uberd'Uber for denying a couple of Pax's based on her perceived idea that she was rape bait. She asks:"Was this paranoia, or were these two "boys from the hood" looking for a blonde female driver to beat/rob/rape/all of the above?" UP agrees with BeurBeur in asking: "Or, is the blond female driver being incredibly racist?"

Worst Pax
SwordfishSwordfish shared a screen shot that is pure Uber Gold! He handled Ms. Waldo like a pro and gets our striped beanie for having to put up with this week's Worst Pax! http://uberpeople.net/threads/this-passenger-rubbed-me-the-wrong-way.19102/

Troll
UberGTAUberGTA for calling us part-timers "Leeches" and hammering ActionJax for his reality call.
