    Lost Item At Wells Fargo Center (76ers)

    I picked up this gentleman and his wife in Old City around 1pm today. He was one of those front runner Philadelphia fans that doesn't know jack shit about basketball and is clearly along for the ride. He had the Eastern Conference ALLLLL figured out. Here was his plan: Pax: "Well, we win today...

    Karma

    Had a funny little episode last week, with a young woman losing her cell phone and the drunk boyfriend cussing me out, returned the phone and charged the account because boyfriend was a cheap A-hole. https://uberpeople.net/threads/my-1star-for-the-week.294041/ Today I got an email..... a...

(In this case it was a $90 XL ride snd she had tipped me $12, and I was less than a mile away, so I ran phone back.) Couple...

    More Lyft hypocracy

    Got a text from Lyft today. "___ thinks they left something in your car, call them at xxx-xxx-xxxx" I texted back Did not find anything. They replied This is a bot, you need to call the pax. Why would I do that? I don't want these people to have my phone number! If I asked for the pax's...

    Gee Whiz another partial puke

    Rider needed fresh air. Just dry heaved. I handed him one of the bags I carry. He's the first rider who actually needed it. Seemed like he was mostly being cautious, he wasn't spewing....until he was. I actually made things worse by handing him a bunch of kleenexes, because he took one hand off...

    No lost item

    Did not lose an item. 7 of the most recent 10 posts in the advice column have to do with lost items, so I thought I would create one myself. Once I lost my marbles. If anyone has seen them, please return them asap.

    Lost items

    What’s with emFers leaving items in your car and not tipping when you return them? It’s called basic etiquette. Human f-ing decency. I contacted uber and filled out the returned left item form. I hope I get my $15. Yuppies wanna get in my car smelling like onions from their overpriced burgers...

    Samoir would be ashamed of me

    Took a pax downtown. Let him use my charge cord. Kind of a Dbag, gave him 3 stars. Picked up next pax. Driving by previous pax on our way out, and my phone rings. "Hey bud, this is your last pax, was just in your car. Left my phone on the charger." Me: "I'm right here on the next corner, jog...

    Returning Pax Belongings

    I was out driving on the evening of Feb 10th and half-way through my shift (I usually spend 7-8 hours on weekend evenings) I pickup a couple of Pax and they say that someone has left a black clutch bag on my backseat. The new Pax hand me the bag, I look at it and put it into my glove...

    A Passenger showed up at my house.

    To nights ago I dropped off a young couple at a bar. The girl left her iphone in the backseat, but by the time I noticed they were gone inside the bar. It was the guy that called the uber so I reported that they left the phone and gave uber permission to give them my phone number. I had dropped...

    First really bad experience with a passenger, needed to share.

    Here's a wild story for you. I've been driving now for about three months. I've had a few salty passengers, as have all of you. It's expected, especially when driving at night and dealing with drunks. This situation however was unique. I drove a guy from West Hollywood out to the valley near...

    Best responses to pax for left behind cell phones?

    I've seen this issue pop up in other threads and was a little shocked at one driver's post who implied that returning lost items were not his job and the items would just 'disappear' from his car so he wouldn't have to return/inform uber/lyft about it. I think there's better ways of handling...

    Lost Items

    Hey everyone, So I'm really new to UBER and how all of this works.. Late Sunday night a friend of mine called for an UBER pick-up using her account. The ride was great and on-time. But I seem to have made the great mistake of leaving my phone and keys in the driver's car. Is there any chance...
