    College student going to abortion clinic left on the roadside by Uber driver.

    I'm curious as to what crime she thought the driver had committed, that she went to the police to file charges.

    What to do with persistent repeat requests?

    When I got the message from Lyft, the first time, implying that MY failure to accept all rides could single-handedly bring the company to it's knees... I just can't take Lyft seriously anymore. Yesterday I got 2 messages from Lyft: one said I was doing great, all 5 star rides, zero complaints...

    Got Caught Slippin

    I always put it back on Uber "I don't mind stopping, but it can't be for more than 2 or 3 minutes. Uber gets pissed off if the wheels aren't turning, they tell drivers to cancel after 3 minutes and make you order a new ride."

    Late nite McD run by teens

    TL DR: Funny story Weekend night. Trapped in the suburbs.. sooner or later, someone will want a ride back to the city. But for now, a bunch of small rides here and there. Picked up 2 older teens, going to McD's and back home. I was fed up with the short runs, so I asked "Am I dropping someone...

    How exactly is this "improving" the experience? By forcing us to leave empty? By forcing us to drive further? By forcing pax to wait longer for a ride? Taking away that close in turn around loop was bad enough. This just F'ing sux.

    What to do with persistent repeat requests?

    You passed on that ride that's 10 minutes away. 30 seconds later, you passed on it again. Another minute goes by, and there it is again! Maybe now you'll take it? HA!

    Is Lyft screwing me when I go offline?

    Last week I had two sneaky Lyft experiences. 1. Logged off to go see a friend. 2 blocks from the friends house a Lyft ping chimes in. I KNOW I logged off. 2. Taking someone on Uber. My Lyft phones is mounted, and we are going 5 mph in a parking lot, no speed bumps. A Lyft ping comes in. It...

    Lyft ratings scam

    The ratings were up to Thursday. On Friday, a low rating hit. Then later Friday, the report came out. The stars were based on last week Fri-Thurs, but the rating is your rating at the time the email is generated.

    I'm not going to make it (4.81 and falling)

    When a pax asks for a stop, I judge it on a case by case basis. How long will I be sitting around, making less than min wage? How much extra distance will be added to my pay? Is it really an issue, or am I just being picky? Subway is well over 5 min time waster. I would have said no; perhaps...
