    No respect for drivers

    Tonight, I decide to do a bit of driving. I pick up a couple from a bar. As I make my first turn, following the GPS, the female says I'm going out of their way. Then, my favorite part, she tells me that she will report me to Uber for taking the wrong direction; I tell her that I'm following...

    Uber's Support of thief

    Early this morning (2:11 am) I accepted a request on Dublin Road near Dublin, I was 4 minutes away. Just a minute later the requester called me to give instructions that they were waiting at an over-decorated & lit tree on the road (in the rain). I got there and this well dressed couple put a...

    How do YOU deal with drunk/late night passengers?

    Hey everyone, I’ve seen some commentary about it on here before but I wanted to make an official post about it to see what everyone has been doing regarding drunk passengers. Do you cancel the ride upon seeing their staggering demeanor? I was pretty afraid of wasting a few hundred bucks...

    Need advice on removing belligerent Pax...

    Drunk guy put in wrong dot. He Insisted that he can request me again. I told him nah we good man have a good night. He sat on the app for 5 minutes as I missed 5 calls. I finally eluded to our size difference and suggested for all parties involved it'd be best for him to wait for another ride...

    Aggresive drunk guys squeezing 5 in an UberX

    After what happened to me 2 weeks ago I vouched I am not picking up anymore MALES at night unless they're alone and that varies. Actually I decided I will not work anymore nights after 9pm unless I am doing airport trips. Every night that I have worked I end up arguing and cursing with a group...

    Gun pressed against my face while I was driving last night... happy Halloween!

    To be clear, let's assume that this was a plastic gun, because when your eyes are on the road, how can you tell if that drunk idiot in the back seat is pressing a fake gun or a real gun against your face? So last night, after waiting 5-6 minutes for pax to show up, one sits in the front and two...

    Never under estimate the profitability of drunken idiots!

    So I'm out driving this evening, coming back into town from a drop off in the middle of nowhere and thinking about calling it quits and going home. It's surging at 1.5 so that means no rides for a while as surge fares are rare here, everyone waits until they end. Sure enough the surge ends and I...

    Pax Told Me to **** Off

    Happy Thursday Uber fam So here we are with yet again another fun story about my encounters with the other side. (TL;DR at bottom as always) So I'm just coming back from a 30 min 6 mile run because this low-rated pax wanted to stop at Taco Bell. Yeah I know I know, it was a slow night. Didn't...

    Too bad, so sad

    I am almost positive that this job truly personifies Murphy's Law. I tried to ride the Temecula Surge wave last night on some kind of crazed idea that it would follow the same patterns that it has every other weekend. Seeing as anytime I try to do anything calculated it ends up poorly, it was...

    Drive through with pax

    For some reason last night hunger was hitting the drinking crowd and on three separate trips pax asked me to hit a drive through (Jack in Box x2 and Taco Cabana). No problem with it but at least two of the dudes saved the food but then one group of truly awful ladies chowed down in the car. Do...

    First unpleasant encounter

    I'm in my third week, and had great riders, until tonight. I picked up a couple, he was super drunk, and wanted to go to club downtown. He didn't enter the drop off address, and told it to me so that I would put it into my GPS, but he gave me the wrong address. When it became clear I was...

    I just got a passenger arrested.

    Okay, so tonight's been... interesting. Not only was it pathetically slow (I am on track to receive my lowest paycheck since I damaged my car in August), but my last ride resulted in a passenger getting arrested. The pickup was in Anaheim, at a "gentlemen's club" called Fritz That's It. It's...
