First tip I did not really want to take...

I am driving back home from a trip today and just as I am passing the library, I get a ping with ETA of 1 minute from the library.

I say, what the heck, even a minimum fare is fine, since I am in front of the library anyways.

A young man, waiting for me as I approach, immediately flags me, gets in the car and we drive off to his not so far home.

We talk about things, he has a book review project, also working in food industry and his dress shows it. He is clean, kind and doesn't smell 'food industry' funny. he appears tired.

I drop off this young man, give him 5 star, wish him a good day wholeheartedly. I see an honest young man, trying hard, at this young age juggling responsibilities and is respectful, makes sense when he speaks and cool.

He then gives me a tip. I wanted not to take it. He is a teenager, he needs the money more. But he insists. Finally I appreciate his tip and take it.

In contrast, the wealthy people I took to their expensive dinners and clubs with loser minimum fare did not tip me the entire week. Up until this tip, I had no tip since Monday in uber platform.

I will keep that $1.00 and never spend it. It will remind me there are very good people and even uber cannot make an @@@@@@@ of them.

I echo your sentiments. I did not do a ton of rides last night. But I did have at least several pick ups and drop offs at communities with manned gated entrances. I had a pick up at a Ritz Carlton. At the end of the night, the only tip was from a Lyft ride given to high school student going home after a game (yeah, the odds are the pax was not 18).

Go figure.
