    I broke a cardinal rule.

    It happened to me once on a Lyft ride. After accepting a ping (right after cancelling for no show) and getting back to pick up the customer, the young lady was almost crying telling me she was late to work, luckily just few miles away. I told her to cancel and drove her for free. But really, if...

    R.I.P surge

    Stalin is not my hero. Far from it, and if you paid attention to few of my recent posts (that you have chosen to ignore), you would know the reason I elected him for my avatar. I am sorry I quoted your post and caused you such great pain. I hope it didn't develop into a blister on your finger...

    Ratings on Cancelled trips

    With all do respect, Lepke, at times we forget about the equations. You may not see any effect on your ratings simply because they are based on much greater pool of rating activity. I had noticed many times that every time I would ignore non-surge requests or cancel accepted request, my ratings...

    Ratings on Cancelled trips

    If by all means Uber is not legal as a transportation company in NJ, than why even bother asking the State about legality driving passengers to NYC? Uber, of course, doesn’t consider themselves a transportation company. They are simply information providers, an app that connects riders with...

    Ratings on Cancelled trips

    Uber/Lyft rating system is unfair and they know it. Obviously if you get shitty rating more frequently than most drivers, they will notice it will deactivate you. To tell you the truth, some drivers do deserve it, and this system as bad as it is, does provide the feed back to Uber on those...

    R.I.P surge

    I completely disagree with you. There are less drivers on a rainy days than usual and this obviously creates demand and surge. THIS has always been a case and not the way you put it.

    Driving this junk with limited investment at occasional XL rates makes some sense. And I emphasize on SOME because you'd still be using your personal insurance, which is a bad, bad idea. Okay, disregarding my last point, in my personal experience as a XL Uber driver you will catch a lot of XL...

    R.I.P surge

    Have you noticed how many new drivers are there on a road lately? Since last January rate cut, in anticipation of massive driver’s revolt, Uber has increased their advertising 10 folds and brought thousands of new drivers. And they will bring more and more and more ... simply because good 50% of...

    And it happened (fatal accident)

    I hate to say it, but this exactly the type of my accident. I repeat it again, if I had pax in the back seats no one woul survive. And all of you who say you can be killed just going to buy a milk, please do yourself a favor - grow up. My prayers for a driver and family of those who were killed.

    My best advice for all of you

    From 85 to 81? What is this - in Canadian currency? 1 Canada dollar = 75 cents US. Oh, boy,... Do you have McDonald's in Edmonton?

    My best advice for all of you

    No, not only for fun. I would not do if I there were no compensation at all. Both of my cars are expensive and I didn't want to ruin them ubering every day. But I did enjoy it in the beginning, I am a sociable person and had quite a few interesting passengers to have a nice chat about all...

    My best advice for all of you

    Here you go again ... Yes, you can die choking on a ice cream cone. This guy, I read in the paper, died while having sex with a sex toy, and was electrocuted...... I have no idea why would you site somethings like this as an argument? I disagree with you almost on everything, but never...

    My best advice for all of you

    Другим не нужно это знать? Почему? Потому что ты считаешь что я все это придумал? Well, you can say whatever you want, but the first words from my insurance adjuster was - Were you Driving for UBER or LYFT at the time of the accident? How naive can you be, believing that Gyco did not ask you...

    My best advice for all of you

    Thanks! God Bless all of us who work asses off to make decent living in the country that we all love. There is no place in the World where freedom still has its its original meaning, and where everyone is empowered by Creator to have "unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and...

    My best advice for all of you

    Thank you, Lepke. It's always refreshing to read your posts. I'm getting better every day although my left arm is broken and it will take a while for healing process, I work for major pharmaceutical company, and they allow me to work from home, which is a big help as I intent to work till...

    My best advice for all of you

    You missed the point, like you always do. Sometimes it makes a little sense to hear what other people say, not just how you have interpret it. For a long time I was saying uber is a shitty, unlawful piece of crup multi zillion interpise that made all its fortune by basically screwing their...

    My best advice for all of you

    Some of you may still remember me from frequent posting last year up to late spring of this year. I was voicing my negative feeling after Uber cut already idiotically low rates down to current 85 cents per mile. Look, I am not desperate to make money driving some who knows who for little extra...

    Off topic - who are you voting for?

    Trump is a clown, but Hillary is a liar and a crook. But does it really matter? In NJ any democrat will win.

    I’m done. Uber you win!!!!

    I am done long time ago. Uber is like a life in Russia under communism - It's horrendous, but the propaganda tells you how wonderful it really is.
