Got a 1 star for trying to be funny?

  1. so pick up pax from airport drop her off in the city and the road was busy so barely anywhere to stop without blocking the road and causing traffic. As we roll up on the drop off point, there's a homeless guy tweaked out of his mind and taking a **** on the sidewalk. I told her welcome to the city and enjoy your stay. Make sure to hold your nose. I think she took it the wrong way and slammed the door.

  2. What a pos! What does an Uber driver have to do with homelessness?. Can you provide a brief description so I can avoid her and type? Thanks

    Reminds me of the 1 Star and email from Uber about discrimination.

    The only thing I said was 100 points for the rather large one jay walking and as I looked back in my rear view mirror to a woman of the same stature, I stressed for days if I was going to get deactivated. I was about 500 rides in and had no clue.

    You didn’t think quick enough. You could have repaired her damaged self-esteem by smiling to pax and saying, “but you’re worth at least a 10,000 points!!” :D

  10. Things i've said this week... (23 hours taxi driving)


    You just survived the most dangerous and scariest ride in Universal studios, The taxi ride!

    "Following your safe arrival at the airport your odds of you making it home alive have increased significantly"

    "the meter is correct, I'm Asian"

    "Up yours B$(*%!" (she didn't pay, i felt i was justified)

    "I'm sorry, if you can't pay up front I have zero faith that i'm going to get paid at all, please exit the vehicle"

    You offended a snowflake. God forbid. That's why I try to avoid jokes. Snowflakes have no sense of humor.

    Coming to Greensboro soon. The Homeless Activism Council, or whatever their advocacy group calls themselves, is pushing the city council (6 dems and a socialist) to allow the homeless to urinate and defecate in public without police interference.

    The best one star for my big mouth was when a snowflake visiting from San Francisco commented that the Redding area was beautiful. Then he asked how long I've lived here and I told him I been here for 25 years and moved from San Francisco. He said, "I bet you've seen a lot of changes." I said, "Yea, more and more commies from San Francisco move here and bring their voting habits and delinquent children with them - its not good changes."
    Quiet trip. No tip, door slam, one star.
    LoL. Totally worth it.
    I should have offered half off for a trip to the airport.

    I have said similar to my customers. Back in the Zone Days, when the fare was pre-determined (as long as it was just Point A to Point B and stayed in the City), you could tell the customer what it was going to cost, to the penny, before you moved a wheel. There were certain types that I used to make pay up front. The catch was that you had to collect up front before you moved a wheel or you had to wait until the end.

    Maybe the 1 star had nothing to do with your joke. It is most likely a reflection on your driving.
