  3. Its a pain but surely you should wait to the end of the shift to see if this is even worth moaning about?

    Take the good with the bad, I had a similar situation Wednesday night. But after that trip I did £65 in just over 2 hours.

    Once again I am struggling to see the problem here, you either want to work or you don't.

    **** happens in this game, sometimes you get **** jobs other times you get great jobs, it all balances itself out in the end.

    If you don't want to run for a job, don't log on, simples.

    Who do you think is to blame here? - Hope you learn your lesson.
    Jobs over 5 mins away are not viable..everyone should refuse them.

    Don't wanna sound rude moe, but it is your own fault tbf....sometimes it is worth going abit out of your way for customers, but I have seen last 3 years that most of jobs I get maybe 80% at least go local....

    Had a job similar area to u I think it was Watford, it was end of my shift on way home towards m25....had ping from motoway....called customer some Chinese type rider could not understand them....

    Apparently they were on way to airport and driver hit deer just before junction on country lane.... I spoke to uber driver on riders phone and he seemed all shook up naturally... I said to him "dude I would come over for you, but your on wrong side off m25 for me, sorry.

    I would never travel more than a few miles to pick up from any motorway and def not if they have not picked up my phone call beforehand!

    I'm sure the controller really appreciates you running to help them out and will compensate you with other jobs.

    Not the Riders fault.
    Question is to the Uber Drivers on this Forum:
    Rate 1 Star? "I ran 5 miles, 20 minutes for this"
    Rate 5 Star? "S##T happens"

    i feel for the driver who had to travel that distance and then wait for the rider then answer all the questions about where are you from and how long youve been in this country for £3.70
