Funny. I was about to say the same thing, then read yours.When they stand in the only open spot for me to pull over so I don't block traffic.
Dont ever pick up Pool calls. Drive to their pickup location. Roll up windows, lock doors. Cancel when exactly time expires. Drive away slowly after making sure they are not near your car.Good for you!
I had that happen a few weeks ago when I was in the process of dropping off other PAX. It was a Pool request. PAX calls says he and his wife are waiting for me in a restaurant. I told him they have to walk to the pick up location shown on the app. He was very aggressive, insisting I call him when finished with my trip. I said ok. As I was dropping PAX off they said don't pick him up ( call was on speaker), I agreed and cancelled immediately.
I get this all the time.“Pull up a little further.” Then 4 inches later, “OK STOP STOP STOP RIGHT HERE.”
You couldn’t have jumped out 4 inches back there when I stopped before?
I get it. But it doesn't bother me a bit. My small market has many riders who are using rideshare for the first time. Their curiosity is not unusual and I am happy to have something to talk about.Don't ask stupid questions. I would tell them their driver was probably asked the same questions fourteen times before they were going to ask them. How would you feel if people asked you the same questions fifteen times per day while you were at work?
Same. I’d rather tell every passenger how long I’ve been driving and what my other job is and where I’m from, and get the chance to ask them questions to hear their story as well, instead of sitting there in silence bored out of my head.I get it.

I've had similar experiences with people who are younger.I had an elderly man open the door and start to get out before I could even come to a complete stop. About gave me a heart attack. That’s all I need is for him to fall...the poor guy was already missing a chunk of his nose from cancer.
This is your winner folks. Absolutely moronic behavior. Add to that what bk8746 mentioned above aboutSpotting me driving toward them and they start walking out into the road.
I had a girl open the car door, throw her purse inside, and say “I need to go to Starbucks next door quick, I’ll be right back”.Another stupid thing pax do is leaving (or trying anyway) to leave an anchor in the car to get you to stay. I've heard of things on here as egregious as actual children!
Some day, she will wonder why it gets stolen. She'll blame it on the restaurant where it happened.I had a girl open the car door, throw her purse inside, and say “I need to go to Starbucks next door quick, I’ll be right back”.
She’s very lucky I’m a trustworthy person and didn’t drive off. Who the heck puts their purse in some stranger’s car and walks away?!
Literally right now this dude asked to stop at 7-11, I was gonna take off but he left his backpack in the car. Who are these people?!Some day, she will wonder why it gets stolen. She'll blame it on the restaurant where it happened.
