Do you discriminate based on name?

    I have found myself declining Lyft trips based on names lately. I’ve gotten to the point that I am annoyed when the pax can’t even speak a little English, and more so I can’t stand certain smells.

    Now when I get a request with a name that is impossible for me to pronounce, I decline it. BO and oil are two of my triggers. Oh and the smell of cooking grease. I had a “chef” this morning that reeked of cooling oil like he hadn’t washed his work clothes. It gave me a headache so bad that I ended the ride and told him to get a new driver.
     
  2. No.
    That's silly.

    But I have in the past for race.
    I'm not proud of it.

    Certain names that pop up tells me in advance there will be no tip after the ride. One of many reasons I'll admit I discriminate based on names now and then.
     
  5. yes, I see Candy, Roxy, Brandy, Angel, Ginger, Cherry, Kitty, or LissettiLissetti and I hit accept so fast.

    I think you missed Chassy and Barbie.
     
  8. Eh, not so much. I've picked up T, G, J, Q and Zbsjshakdbsk before with no incident. It also depends on the time of day and the area I'm in.

    I definitely do. Names like Daddy, Mr. Big, yoMama....and this fine young lady who approached me in the pouring rain wearing a soaking wet white t-shirt and grey leggings:

    I don't get enough pings where I can just willy nilly decline them for no good reason.

  13. Yep.
    You know a moderator isn't tipping.

    Late at night I sometimes discriminate based on sex

    We tip you on the website in likes. If you go above and beyond we throw in a featured thread.

    I absolutely do....if you have some BS fake name on Lyft, auto time out.

    Also, if you have more than 3 vowels in your name, see previous result.

    I dont care....when I drive, I get enough.pings during my time that I can pick and choose my pax.

  17. So what's the rider equivalent to likes?
    Stars?

    Next time please take a picture of her and share.

    Maybe the girl in the wet t-shirt also while you're at it

    I have found "Jesus", got "Moses" where he was going and gave a ride to a lovely Russian lady named "Nigia"

    It's OK if you say it with an A

  20. I don’t.

    I even accepted one written in Chinese.

    I have to say, it was intriguing.
