    Yes, I see now. So the incorrect Rider, the one who did not book The Ride, the one who does not have the telephone that booked The Ride, will get in your car and then change the destination using the phone they don't have. Then you will take the incorrect Rider along with the phone he doesn't...

    Now lift is doing it

    I get a ping in Western Bergen County and it turns out the destination is LaGuardia. Lyft hides the fact that it's a long ride. I guess they're thinking we'll get there and just decide to take it anyway. Wrong.

    yeah I think both Uber and Lyft have stopped encouraging customers to expect water and mints. When they start giving me a budget for that kind of stuff I will start carrying it. I also think they no longer tell customers to expect an aux cord either. Issues with riders playing vulgar music and...

    You still haven't answered the question. So you're saying I'm going to greet the rider by name, and it's not the name of the person, but they're going to pretend it is, and get into a car to get a free ride to an unknown destination? Is this really what you're saying? This saying "what's your...

    So you're saying somebody lied about their name and got into an Uber that was for somebody else? Before I started saying the names religiously I had picked up a couple of incorrect riders accidentally. However since I started saying the name of the rider I have never picked up the wrong person...

    So you're saying I'm going to say the writer's name and somebody else who is not the writer, somebody with a different name, is going to say yes that's me, get in my car and take a ride to an unknown destination? Has this ever happened to anyone?

    I make sure they're the right person by their name. If they're going to lie about their name and get a free ride to an unknown destination that's not a problem I'm worrying about.

    It seems like on this topic there's two categories Uber drivers. Once you care about the ratings and others who say don't even look at it. I think caring is a good thing if it leads you to improve your quality of service. I also think the things you learn increasing your quality of service...

    get the heck out of my car

    Sounds like a good way to break terms of service and get deactivated. I would never display any kind of a weapon nor put a hand on a passenger. The best thing to do is to pull over and call the police and if they won't get out and you feel unsafe get out of the car yourself. Whatever they do to...

    get the heck out of my car

    My rule is if you've already started the ride, finish it and at the end call the company so you won't be paired again with that rider and also to report any inappropriate behavior, and to get your side of the story on the record. If there was a reason why I felt like I safely couldn't continue...

    I've been driving for 11 months and have 4700 rides. I'm not the most senior guy here but I didn't start yesterday. Now that that's out-of-the-way. My rating always seemed to bounce between 4.92 and 4.93. Not bad, and well in the safe zone for not being deactivated for low rating. But I wanted...

    Detour

    Well about rating, it's nice to have a high one, reportedly it does things for you like get you paired with higher rated riders, and it's very important when Uber pro comes to your market. I think caring about your rating gives the driver a positive feedback loop which may cause a driver to be...

    The Front Seat thing, again.

    I drive a minivan that seats 5 in the back. I keep the front seat all the way forward just so it's easier for people to get in and out in the back. When I pull up I hit the button so the sliding door opens. I really like the sliding door in traffic since it only protrudes slightly. Sometimes...

    Detour

    I pick up a passenger and just down the street from her pickup location, her residence, the road is blocked in there's a detour sign. It's a main road in the area and I figure there's a good chance her ride is going to take us that direction. Sure enough her destination is in that location. As...

    The Front Seat thing, again.

    when us older folks read # we don't think hashtag, we think pound sign. So why are all these people saying "pound me too"? Okay, if you say so.

    Messages start as soon as I accept the ride

    I thought you'd agree. Sometimes when I'm in certain situations I feel like all you guys on the Forum are riding along with me and giving me your helpful input.

    Messages start as soon as I accept the ride

    It's it's a pool ride no less. I accept the ride and as soon as I do I get a message from the rider saying I am here. I have seen that before. I'm assuming it's one of the ready-made messages in the Uber app since I have received the same message verbatim many times. I'm not sure what useful...
