    Temptation to turn it back on

    Have you stopped driving because of COVID? Me too. It’s funny how many of us (including myself) complain about the miserable pay and rotten treatment we receive from U/L and sometimes from pax, yet it takes a pandemic to get us to finally stop driving. I picked up a replacement job delivering...

    Uber surge clouds are shady AF

    Have any of you seen your surge disappear when you know it’s still there? I thought it was updating the area, but it will only reappear when I force close & reopen. I’ve also had Uber tell me my surge was half of what the cloud I was looking at showed. Why don’t they post the surge at the...

    MANDATORY TIPPING, in the time of COVID

    In the Toronto subform, there is a thread about InstaCart users that put a big juicy tip into the app, then retract that tip after delivery. You can imagine, this leaves drivers seething in rage.

    Delivery vs Passengers

    Been thinking about doing delivery instead of X driving? Try and picture this: No more unaccompanied minors. No more car seats. No more false accusations. No more drunks. No more aux cord requests. No more Taco Bell requests. No more service animals. Just food, or packages. Sounds amazing...

    Have anyone ever received a DoorDash request to deliver alcohol?

    I've received a request for a trip to BevMo! and required myself and the customer to be 21 or over. I'm above 21, but what if the customer hesitates to show identification or if I checked the customer's I.D and the person is below 21, do I keep the alcohol or drive back to the store to return...

    Pickup locations to avoid: 2 Fat Indians, Joondalup

    Heads up Delivery Partners - this new locations is one to avoid for pickups. They’ve only opened this week, and were dumb enough to start accepting orders from day one. As you can imagine, they are ill-prepared, have insufficient staff, don’t prioritise orders; all of which is leading to...

    DoorDash/Grubhub driver here. The other night on a DD pickup I noticed the restaurant was advertising FoodJets as a delivery option for customers. I decided to look them up and was surprised to see that they delivered for most of the restaurants in my home town, after some research I found that...

    Rant: DD customer wanted freebies (I had evidence), but lowered my rating because customer didn't answer door and I followed all delivery instructions

    The instructions for upon arrival were: "Do not ring or knock the doorbell (I have a large dog). Do not leave food at door" Text (### ###-####) when you are here." (I texted through the DD app) So I assumed that the customer will meet me at the door after I text and call, but no one answered...

    Uber Eats: Dayton restaurants & Uber need to get their act together

    Venting some, but. I've had four places in the last month and a half be unavailable for delivery. Twice the place was closed (how did the order get placed?) and twice their systems were down; I assume the orders had been placed but they couldn't see them. Two of those instances were different...

    My first delivery ride without a pax

    Pick up was at a mom and pop hardware store. Guy came out with an 8‘x2“ steel pipe some connectors, and the invoice. Had a five dollar bill in his hand that he handed to me first thing. Turned out to be a $10 ride, and the recipient (a plumber) was waiting right there in his truck. Very easy...
