    When did your bright eyed newbie expectations fade? For me, it was today with a 3 stop pax & no tip. I’m out. Good luck all. You’re better off at McD’s.

    Today I had a passenger leave mud stains on my floors, $7 fare. Haven't heard a thing from Uber about a cleaning fee. A few more minimum fare rides. An outwardly nice couple that made me wait 7 minutes, no tip. Total waste of time. Yesterday I made good money.

    It's going to be up and down. I have a specific goal and I'm plowing through and doing any trick or gimmick I can to increase tips and fares. Then I'm done.

    Take a day off and start again.

    You might be too soft for this gig.
    But keep in mind, at McD’s you have to show up when they tell you, and you can’t leave until they say you can.. I might be making the same/less driving, but I can come and go as I please.

    It's your vehicle, of course you can.

    I have far more good rides than bad ones.

    It's too bad you waited until today to sign up for this forum.

    Agreed, I could have pulled the plug on this waste of time earlier!

    At Icky-D's the customers abuse you and if you will not put up with it, you get fired.

    At Fubar and Gryft, the customers abuse you and if you will not put up with it, you get de-activated.


    I have had far more mediocre trips than good or bad.

    How many trips did it take you to realize this?

    For me it was last week, when Uber kicked me out of LAX for no good reason. Hello Lyft...

    I was happy doing uber until the rates got slashed down to under $1.00 per mile. When it got cut from 90c to 65c a mile i quit, now it's at 53c here.

    Your absolutely right that McDs is better in many places.

    Good luck with your new life!

    277 trips isn't that much, that's really just figuring out the job still.

    I don't know what would make a trip mediocre. If I've got a paying customer in the back seat and I'm not stuck in traffic that counts as a good ride.
