    Accept a ride and destination is a grocery store? Cancel. Pulled up today and what do I see? Full cart of groceries! $4.33 later I'm like..."Never Again"! 2 hrs later? Another grocery store! Cancelled! What's next? Moving furniture?

    And whatever you do...don't ever eat Soylent Green!

    Yep, that and walmart.....no thanks
     
  3. Thats why Uber doesn't show the name of the pickup location on the ping. They don't want drivers to see Walmart and pass on the ride.

    What's the problem? People without cars need groceries. I help them load their stuff in the car, take them home and often get a nice tip. Geez, folks, lighten up!

    You didn't mention the tip$?

    P.s. I drove her to work before for $4.12. No tip. My bad! History!

  8. I help them load their stuff in the car, take them home, help them unload and often get no tip. Earn a minimum ride and nothing else.

  12. There are already services set up to do that (like InstaCart). Uber/Lyft are not the appropriate service for that need.

    Edit: I think it's a problem that people are using ride share drivers as a replacement for more expensive labor (ambulance service, child transport, moving company, etc.). We should not be a cheap labor catch all just because people don't want to pay for the service that they actually need.

    I don't think Uber does that purposely. Anytime a Pax places their pin on a location it will just register as an address. If you go into the pickup field on the app and then you put in Walmart for example it will populate.

  15. Cancel and get reported to Lyft. Deactivated.

    I think the punishment came when the ping hit the phone for a store pick up

    I get grocery jobs all the time in both the cab and the UberX car. I help them regardless of what they are riding. In the cab, I almost always get a tip. In the UberX car, I rarely get a tip.



    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    For years, people have used taxicabs as discount movers, ambulances, babysitters...........................................

    People use TNCs as discount taxicabs. It follows that people will use TNCs as discount ambulances, grocery jitneys, movers.........................

    Just got off the phone with Matt the ahole from lyff support..he was very stern with me...said you will be deactivated for a low acceptance rating regardless of distance or location..i told him to hold on, i needed to flip the burgers on my foreman grill..ok, back..go Matt, tell me this again? Then I asked how many trips a month is the minimum to stay active..he said there is no minimum..so I told him I’ll be doing that amount since I’m clearly not Lyft material..hellooo Uber!

    Grocery Stores, High Schools, Hospital ERs, any bar after 10pm are on my go touch yourself list.
