View attachment 38658 That's a BS story. The BS PAX gets a story and a free ride. The driver gets the shaft. I did nothing but here's my report and virtually no pings since I complained about it.

Please be a little more clear in your post. Are you the driver said reporter is talking about or are just someone who got a poor rating and this was Uber's generic response?

Hard to believe you aren't getting any pings if you are driving in Boston. Maybe you are getting blacklisted.

Some advice on how to deal with female passengers.

1. Ask one or two generic small talk questions. If they answer you in short two word answers then they really don't want to talk. This is when you stfu for the rest of the ride.

2. Never ask them if they have a boyfriend. If they want you to know they will let you know. This is a question women take as being hit on.

There are some other obvious things not to do that need no explaining.

I am in the Inland Empire which is in California. I also drive LA. Being in California & LA I pick up LBGT & CIS. I therefore do not know if the PAX was male, female or something in-between. I did nothing = I don’t hit on PAX. I don’t ask if they have a boyfriend, girlfriend, T-friend, etc. I mostly just STFU and drive.

Sounds like the passenger 1 starred you by accident. Sometimes they don't hit the swipe right and one star by mistake. They probably gave no explanation on the one star to Uber so Uber just sent you one of their generic report/comments on ratings. I wouldn't let it bother you. It happens. One time I got a report for having a bad attitude. I couldn't think of a single incident that whole week where someone could have said I had a bad attitude. I can have a bad attitude on here for sure but I don't have to worry about ratings here. Pax never see this side of me.

In that respect you can't compare your situation to what happened to this reporter. You kind of led the forum to believe a woman accused you of hitting on them and cause you didn't then all stories of women getting harassed by drivers are false. I do believe this reporter's story.

What kind of reporter is this who thinks that Honda element is a two door car??

Should've done her research that the Element is a 4 door crossover. Don't know if I can believe her story after that.

“He told me he was a very sexual person, and that he loved giving oral sex.”

“When I told him to unlock the doors, he demanded I tell him whether I was sexually attracted to him.”

“He said he wanted to kiss me, and, as I pushed up the lock, he turned his body toward me.”

Believe what you want but it’s a 100% BS Story.

I looked at the reporter and feel sorry for the driver if he actually was hitting on her. Sounds more like the pax was looking for attention.

If anything I am generally more terrified of female pax and false accusations. Generally mind my own business, have a conversation if they engage, etc. Last week I picked up 3 younger girls... Bordering on 18... Can be so hard to tell, but would not be surprised if they were on mom or dad's account. Their conversation was completely sexual. Pretty much tried blocking it out to avoid any reactions etc., but fully expected I was taking them to a strip club to start their shift... Proud parents I can tell you.

You don't think there are guys out there that act this way? If so then you are really naïve. This story is 1000% believable to me but we can agree to disagree.

Oh please. Story is complete fiction.

Do I believe that there are creepy guys who drive, hit on, and even commit rape on their passengers? 100%

Do I believe there are reporters who fabricate stories, create fictional accounts based upon real accounts to sell articles, messages, and for notoriety? 100%

The flow does not make sense. If the driver was a perv, he would not offer for her to sit in the back, especially if she was in the front. Female riders in this situation, once things start escalating and getting uncomfortable GET ON THE PHONE. They either start texting their friends, or in this case the Boyfriend. "Hi Honey... I am almost home... Yeah. I am in an Uber and we are..."

There was a well known reporter in Mass... Mike Barnicle. Was a featured columnist in the Boston Globe, had a featured spot on the TV Show Chronicle and he got caught FABRICATING stories.

I don't know for sure if the this incident is true but if there is smoke usually is fire. This eventually happen when every Joe Sixpack bored in his sofa go online and fill out the uber form and he is on the road 24 hours later. For fast food job require live in person interview. No wonder why uber have 20000 drivers. There is hardly any constant surge. I worked last night with all graduation this weekend and yesterday being cinco de mayo I hardly made $18 an hour before deducting gas and expense. And this is May which suppose to one of the best month to make money. It is joke that anybody with driver license and clunker could be uber X driver even as far as New Hampshire in matter of 24 hours.

A driver hitting on a
female is probably
par for the
course, considering how
uber screens
it's drivers.

It could have happened.

Some models of the Honda Element look like they have a smaller back door. Perhaps she did not know that the small back door was there. The driver took her getting into the front seat as an expression of interest in him. It used to be that I would be surprised that Uber would accept a vehicle with a smaller back door, but, considering some of the Uherhoopties that I have seen lately, nothing surprises me.

Doom-Bass driver, to be sure. I have had females just jump into the front seat of the cab and UberX car, over the years, and never thought anything of it. You ain't in this business to do that kind of a "pick-up". I ain't, neither. I am in this business to get paid: long green or the green AmEx card; Visa, Mastercharge, Discover, Diner's Club, Carte Blanche, JCB, Direct deposit are also good.

In fact, when the cab had a partition, if anyone wanted to sit in the front, I let her, him or it do so. This went double in the hotter months of the year, so that the customer could have better air conditioning. I told people who had dogs to tell the dog to sit on the seat, as the partition left no room on the floor.

I hear similar complaints from female passengers. While I am an old guy, so maybe they feel that I am harmless, some of them have complained about old guy's hitting on them. I have heard these complaints for years, as well, even when I was not an old guy.
