    Lyft stock is a scam

    Does Lyft issue a dividend? To date, Lyft has not declared or paid a cash dividend. We currently intend to retain any future earnings and do not expect to pay any dividends in the foreseeable future. Meaning lyft CEO is profiting from the stock

    Uber taking tips?

    Sounds funny right? Wouldn’t surprise me though. I took a much needed break for a month and came back and every tip I have received in the past week has had change involved but when I go to see what the rider paid, it doesn’t round up the the nearest dollar. Thoughts?

    Here's a good example of new reality. Lyft charged passenger almost x2 surge price and paid me 1.67 as a "bonus". Scammers!

    I bet 500 dollars...

    That UBER will not pay me out the 500 appreciation reward. I just wanna be on the record. They haven't said anything to me yet. The fake excuse will come soon.

    Bridge Tolls

    Just a reminder, Uber are routinely “forgetting” to pay one of them if u get rides both way, and they always “forget” to pay for East Bay to Treasure Island. It used to be rare enough to be maybe accidental, but now it’s systemic. They are lying, thieving shits. But then we know that.

    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.
