  1. PimpMyRideShare

    Passenger wanted me to join him in scam

    I pick up some kid in the Bronx and he tells me he can offer me an opportunity to make a little extra money. He was being dropped off and I received another request, so conversation was cut short. He said we should exchange phone numbers and he'll explain later. I thought whatever and gave him...

    Hospital tries to get rid of patient by calling Uber

    Unbelievable that a health care facility would call for a rideshare in an attempt to get rid of a patient they don't want. Isn't this illegal?

    Uber IPO short sell?

    How many of you are actually short selling Uber IPO? I want in, but don't know much about this other than I borrow stock from a brokerage, immediately sell and buy back on the dip and give back the stock and I keep the margin. Is personal credit taken into account, or is this capped by how much...

    Keep the Change You Filthy Animal!

    Lady sends back food delivered to her as prank. She said some guys would send her UBEReats in the middle of the night as a prank. Apparently this happens often to her. She tipped me $25 to return the food to the guy who ordered it for her. So I sent her this. Best customer interaction by far.

    UBEReats deliveries just got a pay cut.

    UBEReats drivers will not qualify for anything in the "Pro" pay cut. Terrible company. Thinking about that movie Fight Club right about now. Also Falling Down, another great movie. Seriously though, we need to organize and go protest at UBER for creating a slave system with extra steps. I'm...

    UBEReats only. 8 hours RESULTS!

    Stop driving for UBER. They pay BELOW minimum wage after mileage and wear and tear. The "quest" system is a joke. Now, you have to earn the "quest" system and other promotions by becoming a slave for 300 trips. Modern day slavery.
