    Female Passenger spits & punches Uber Driver

    I'm game. Let's read again. I don't know what to call that except blaming the driver. I've had any number of customer service jobs so I know from experience that you learn to let certain things slide however THAT person went well beyond anything a reasonable person should be called upon to let...

    Female Passenger spits & punches Uber Driver

    If you weren't then you wouldn't be putting the blame on the driver for her own assault.

    Female Passenger spits & punches Uber Driver

    You must be of the school of "the customer is always right". Yeah, no. True, this driver made a CRAP ton of mistakes but none of them warranted being attacked. Do I really have to articulate that?

    ANOTHER UBER DRIVER ATTACKED; AND CARJACKED BY UBER PAX

    You miss my point...which sadly I've come to expect. People would rather treat each other with suspicion and fear in the name of safety rather than as human beings but if this makes even one person actually stop and reconsider its worth it.

    Who else see this kinda thing every day while Ubering?

    There is that and there is the fact that a jail cell in a facility which provides regular meals, shelter, and medical care is FAR superior to the street. Hell, in down town Fort Worth the homeless sleep outside the jail and in the waiting area. With all the cameras and cops around its one of the...

    Canceled fair

    Yeah, why did you keep going back into THAT mess? One cancel? Fine. Could have been an accident. Two cancels? I don't know if their screwing with me or their having technical issues but either way I don't have time for that. Anything after that they are either having serious phone/app issues...

    She got lucky. That story sounds like a pax jerking a driver around. I understand why they canceled and you went above and beyond for her. Hope she's less foolish in her choices in the future.

    ANOTHER UBER DRIVER ATTACKED; AND CARJACKED BY UBER PAX

    So have garbage-men and cops. That doesn't mean a garbage-man should floor it when a person is running after the truck with the trash they forgot to bring out (no guarantee they aren't looking to stab you) or a cop should draw his weapon on a stranded motorist, cuff them, and pat down search...

    Canceled fair

    18 miles for a pickup? You just got your first lesson in why we don't accept too many unprofitable trips. You drove about 40 minutes one way for nothing. Unless that was in the direction of your house then you have at least that much driving for free just to get back to start. That's a whole...

    ANOTHER UBER DRIVER ATTACKED; AND CARJACKED BY UBER PAX

    You're taking chances with your physical safety for money. A broken arm happening because you get side swiped by a drunk driver while headed to work is no less broke than if that drunk happens to be a pax in your vehicle that gets violent. And the odds of a drunk or distracted or just plain...

    ANOTHER UBER DRIVER ATTACKED; AND CARJACKED BY UBER PAX

    I'm going to choose to believe you're joking because the notion that because of the 0.05% chance that something bad COULD happen to me I shouldn't take precautions against the 20 - 30% chance of damage to my vehicle is just silly. I also commute about 65 miles a day 6 days a week. I don't like...

    Thank you for this. Everyone's day should have a little joy in it.

    I can't read Korean, so why does the app allow for that in California?

    That's silly. Even if its NOT them why would they turn down the free trip you just offered them?

    Who else see this kinda thing every day while Ubering?

    Its illegal in Dallas. What are you going to do about it, give em a ticket? Put em in jail? Go down to Lew Sterrett Justice Center in Dallas and among the many cops and detention officers walking back and forth are a dozen or so homeless walking up to people asking for money or pan handling...

    ANOTHER UBER DRIVER ATTACKED; AND CARJACKED BY UBER PAX
