Boca people - worse than average?

Has anyone noticed that Uber pax in Boca are generally more demanding (ie backseat driving, asking for stops, no tips) than those in Delray or WPB?

It really stings when I pick someone up from a multi-million dollar mansion and they can't scrounge up a $2 tip.

Context: I drove for two months while trying to find a job (hence why I couldn't just "not drive and do something else" like many unsympathetic commenters snidely suggest) and burned out very quickly.

Lmao at Bourne uses their instead of they're to describe how stupid someone is. Anyone who lives in a nice area and does not tip gets a 3 star teens get a 1 just because they are annoying to give rides to. If the people are nice and dont tip and live in a general area not upscale then they get a 4. Only people to get 5 are tippers. Learned a long time ago riders dont care about your rating so you dont worry about theirs.

No problem getting a ride at any time with Uber. Just might take a little longer but be ready anyway like all good passengers : )

I don't know if they're worst than other riders than don't tip, that's the majority of Uber Pax anyway. Even Uber still says "we settled, drivers can ask for a tip, but you don't have to" https://medium.com/@UberPubPolicy
With that said, I've driven people to and from Boca a few times and never once got a tip; and the worst was a couple I took to a hotel, they even tipped the valet that took their luggage in front of me.

No. They are locals as opposed to tourists.
Tourists are focused on price. Locals are looking for quality.
More stops means more money for you. I love extra stops. I am not hurrying to wait another hour for a ping.
