Long story short, Driver saw pax entered a $10 tip but never received it, Instead Uber rewarded itself with a $12.45 booking fee. I am glad the fella fought and got his money back from the greedy company. Actually greedy is an understatement, More like criminals.
And you hear all those stories about "pax promised to tip me through app but never did", Maybe they actually tipped, But Uber stole your tip just like others mentioned.
Ever wonder why there were those rides where pax paid $10, You got $4, And somehow on top of $2.1 booking fee Uber gets another $4 “service fee"? 2 out of that 4 could have been your tip.
I grew up in a small rural town in southern Minnesota and one of the funnest parts of my life was going on hayrides as a kid.
I keep thinking about how much people in the Twin Cities would probably enjoy this experience who possibly have never even been on a hayride before!
I originally planned to do this in autumn, but I have been getting impatient, and I have located a place I can get hay from already.
To protect my back seats of my car I plan to cover them with plastic or a tarp.
I spent a lot of time thinking about what the soundtrack should be also. At first I was trying to think of a kind of country type of music, but then I realized that would make it so it's nothing like a real hayride. So then I started considering downloading sound effects of chirping crickets and nighttime sounds. Again, I realize this would not be realistic either. So I intend to get sound effects of a tractor running to add to the realism.
I will have the fans running on high, so it feels like...
Former GE CEO Jeff Immelt close to becoming Uber’s CEO
The long and dramatic process for naming a new Uber CEO may be coming closer to an end.
First reported by Kara Swisher, our sources are also telling us that former General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt is still being seriously considered and the board vote is expected to happen soon. The talks were first reported several weeks ago.
Co-founder and CEO Travis Kalanick was asked to resign in June, following the completion of an investigation into the...
Uber is experimenting with giving a key decision-making power to drivers, making good on its “be your own boss” tagline.
The ride-hailing company is testing a “drop-off area filter” that lets drivers choose where they go. “We will only send you trips that have a drop-off location within the areas you have selected,” reads a message introducing the feature, which was shared by drivers in multiple online forums. “The more areas you select, the more trips you’ll likely get. And you can update your preference at any time.”
Uber confirmed to Quartz that it is conducting a “small” test of the drop-off area filter. A spokesman declined to specify where the feature is being tested but said the drop-off zones drivers can opt into are large swaths of a city rather...
Disclaimer: I drive Uber in Chicago
1: San Francisco
2: New York City
4: Los Angeles
From what I have seen and read on here, it appears as if San Francisco and New York City are far and away the two best markets, in terms of earnings potential. For example, I have read stories of people driving for 100+ miles to work San Francisco. I will give San Francisco the nod here, because the city is very compact, and there are a lot of high tech types out there.
New York would be a close second. I am sure that Manhattan is [on] 24-7. The problem here would be the deadhead tolls on all of those crossings between the buroughs and New Jersey. Also, I am not sure what type of red tape that drivers would have to go through to work Uber between New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Really, the only problem, is that these two cities are wildly expensive. The cost of living, taxes, and housing costs in SF and NY are outrageous. Uber drivers out there could be banking...
