Best pax ever

Doing the usual suburb runs, get a ping to caulfield 3 minutes from current smoko spot. Arrive at destination and 2 19/20ish year old girls waiting out the front, They jump in and we're off to King street. After a couple of minutes of the usual banter the one sitting behind me pops up with "I'm doing a massage therapy course, would it be distracting if I work on your shoulders".

Who the hell am I to argue. Gotta keep the customer happy right, so I spend the rest of the trip to King street getting a shoulder/neck massage. Gave em a packet of Mentos as a thanks and we both get a 5 star ride. Lovin it :smiles:

Sorry to bust your bubble but if she complains that you asked for a massage you will never take another rider ever again. Say No next time.
All fun and games at the moment but these little incidents can end your career. Be careful. Rape charges tend to be honest and consentual until the next morning.

I'm on the fence about it...... But hey, at least a pax is given back! I'm just over the moon if they're out the front waiting these days. I guess I'm easily pleased.

When you gave away a pack of Mentos it took you about two hours driving to recover that cost (Ha Ha) but at least the girls had a happy ending! Hey buddy, don't let the wowsers get you down!

I had a couple guys (internationals) wanting to do a couple laps of the Albert Park GP circuit. The circuit was still being set up a few weeks before the GP so much of the signage, barriers and seating were in place, however they had yet to close the roads.

Know something folks, I'm getting a bit tired of being called stupid and dumb because I don't play Surge Hound and heaven forbid I have a mint and a bottle of water in the car. Really if you can't say something without resorting to name calling then log off and go somewhere else

Driving for Uber is hardly a career :smiles:

Best pax ever - the one who was ready and waiting when I arrived, identified themselves and greeted me by my name, didn't slam my car doors, had already entered their destination, was sober, polite and chatty, didn't smell, didn't ask for water on a minimum fare, didn't eat or drink in my car or ask to go through maccas. And thanked me at the end. Fortunately I get one of them most days, and they make the job bearable.

Mints and water are for rookies
yeah yeah.... I'm with Graham J. Time to stop the broken record, We all know your list of things.

No surge, no ride
No water, no mints,
No fares to the suburbs
No more than 1 min ETA for pings etc.

My water cost is a MASSIVE $1/week based on 30 bottles for $6 (costco). If you're that worried about a $1 'profit' going to waste, then you really shouldn't be driving your car for Uber.

Move on, nothing to see here.

Nice lady jumped in and she is like sorry i'm not going that far. She was comparing taxi price to uber and at the end she gives a $ 20 bill and wishes me good night.
380m!? Please tell me she was on crutches or something at least!?
