    Candy experiment... strange result

    2 weeks ago I was at a friend's house and he gave me some mini candy bars. I ate a bunch and grabbed a few extra. I put them in my car in an open cup holder spot in the very center of the car, with the intention of taking them into my house later. The cup holder is slightly back from the front...

    Missing translation document.list.driver

    Hi everyone. So my Uber account was rejected and I called them for finding reason behind it. They said there is two accounts under your name(there is not to best of my knowledge). They said give us a few days and we will sort it out. Today I went to my Uber Driver app and opened "document"...

    Lousy morning after tips

    Eleven and a half hours last night, 27 total trips. Only one tip the entire night. Here we are the following day and I check for delayed tips. NONE. :( On the plus side, someone left a nice knife in my car. Think I'll keep it.

    How am I supposed to train Lyft AI when it is dumber than a brick?

    Got a Lyft request. Naturally, they don't show the mileage to pickup, which is Uber-important to me. I won't travel more than 1-1.5 miles to pickup. The ping says 5 minutes away. Could be within my parameters... Then I switch to a real map. 8 minutes, 2 miles? Lyft, you lying shits...

    Unbelievable 1 star

    Drove an old woman. Great convo, good time. She's new to Uber. End of ride she hands me a cash tip, then she asks what does she do now? I told her I would end the ride, and on her end the rating screen would come up. "Okay, let's see... is this the ratings screen?" "Yes, then you rate me, and...

    A comedy script about (real life) Uber Driving experiences.

    This is an idea, one that will be shot down, I am sure:smiles: If a comedy script were to be written about real life Uber driver stories, what would be written. Understand that this (posts contributing) is not what would be first in the story, or...what would be the best, but what fits in the...

    Uber customer pricing & why it matters that we know what it is

    Why it matters what Uber customers pay Uber and Lyft are now trying to hide what the customers (pax) pay from the drivers. Uber has made the disclosure screen oversized so that taking screenshots with 100% of the information (on one screen) is now impossible. Lyft has gone off the deep end...

    Commercial insurance

    For shyts and giggles I called my insurance company (USAA) and had them quote me commercial insurance rates, in case I wanted to start my own little business and poach customers from the twin thieves. I have a clean driving record and no accidents for well over 3 yrs (DMV goes back 3 yrs). No...

    Black Market Ants

    Lots of stories lately about Uber getting kicked out of this city or that. Plus with the ever decreasing rates for drivers, while Uber/Lyft takes the lion's share of the fares, in my opinion will only lead to the likelyhood that drivers will begin taking their business profits into their own...

    Cars can make extra money, outside Uber?

    Hey everyone, I am not an Uber driver as of this moment, but the lack of monetary compensation that Uber gives to its drivers still pisses me off. I take the service almost daily and I believe that the drivers deserve better than what they are getting. So, I was thinking of something that...

    Some people....

    Had a woman in my car who was in pain. Back pain. Took her to a chiropractor. She wanted me to wait, as it was going to be a "really quick treatment." Uh, do you think I want to sit around in a chiro waiting room for you?? Thinking quickly, I turned a minus into a plus. "How about if I run down...

    Pax giving directions

    I have found that there are 2 types of pax giving me directions: the people who assume drivers are going to try to rip them off, and the people who are genuinely trying to help. I don't mind the 2nd kind. Story: pick up at a hotel with a funky entrance and exit. Pax says "now, to get out of...

    A fun shuffle

    Pulled up to a bar for a pickup. No parking available. No one waiting outside. No place to stop. So, I did what everyone hates Uber drivers for: I stopped in the street and put on my hazards. Cars pull up behind me, wait, then change lanes and pass me. It's dark out, so I can't see the fingers...
