Ant advice please?
What he did was BS, straight up. But you ignored the early warning signs of a problem passenger.Some details I didn't share earlier:
Pax complained the moment he got into my car about the 5x surge price for his 1.0 mile trip. Also demanded I roll up all the windows because he was cold. Insisted he just tested negative for covid so he didn't need to wear a mask. We were maybe 0.4 mile from dropoff when he decides to cancel. I pulled over right away. I think he wanted to get a free trip. When he saw Uber charged him despite the cancel, he got furious and wouldn't leave the car. I told him to either reorder or let me go. He finally left. In hindsight, if I knew he could screw me so easily, I might have driven him that last 0.4 mile for free. He was young and fit. No reason he couldn't walk 1 mile let alone 0.4.
Whatever faith I had in people took a real beating ...
I had a rider Demand I close the windows.What he did was BS, straight up. But you ignored the early warning signs of a problem passenger.
I'm not driving right now but when I go back, no mask = no ride. Not just because of COVID but because if they're going to refuse to comply with that reasonable request they're probably going to be a PITA in other ways. And he didn't want the windows down because he was cold? It's June, FFS.
If you do eventually get reactivated, learn to read the early warning signs of bad pax and stop the BS before it happens. This pax would've never made it into my car to begin with.
I wouldn't have called the cops because someone wanted the windows closed. But, point taken.I had a rider Demand I close the windows.
-I declined and immediately ended the trip a block from p/u location
-Rider refused to exit my vehicle
-I exited Taking my phone & Dashcam and called the Non-emergency police number
-Rider overheard, jumped out of vehicle and RAN like she was on fire
