    OMG thank you... Good idea... I'm at 4.27 because someone left an orange peel and didn't clean it up in time

    Yeah. I'm pretty much brand new. Last 4 ratings were 5, 2, 1, 1 in no specific order.

    Why the 1s? What happened?

    I was on a 11 5* streak until someone left an orange peel in the back and didn't spot it... so I got dinged twice with two 1 stars then the 2 star is because I think she thought I was too skinny... I took a fat woman to the gym... The rating came on minutes after I dropped her off. Just assuming on the last 2 star though.

    It's the only logical reason why I got the 1 stars. The trash was left back there unnoticed and the riders didn't want to ride next to an orange peel left behind. It screwed my streak up.

    Cheers to this old post. Exactly what I do. I only take nice people, who I in turn treat well - and almost all of my rides are very friendly, mixed in with a few who are dull and quiet (which is perfectly fine by me.)

    I can vet and assess them pretty well in the quick time it takes to meet up.

    You truly are in the wrong business.

    I disagree. I don't give a hoot about my ratings, I seem to have settled into a 4.8 and I'm fine with that. What I am concerned with is having to deal with obnoxious a-holes and their lack of regard for anyone other than themselves. If you are coming up to the car with 6 people, I roll down the window and tell them they have to cancel (or I wait 5 and cancel as no show). I'm getting paid and you are not getting a ride because you know better, you are just trying to get over. With the drinks, I politely tell them no but I'll be happy to wait and they usually guzzle them and hop in with no ill effect. Once in a while I get an attitude and handle same as above because they do no better. In neither case will the pax pay my fine should it come to that so take the cancel and move on. Probably make more money with the cancels anyhow but also somehow the pax need to be trained

    You should team up with the other guy a buy a cab, then you can pick and choose who to let in your car. Be your self and throw the passengers out that do not pass your personality screening.

    Who pissed in your corn flakes this morning that you are looking to be a big man on the Internet. I drive near a college campus so I deal with college students trying to pull crap all the time. You want to get a ticket for overcrowding or open container be my guest. I make more on cancellations than letting them run rough shod over me. I'm here to make money and do it as safely as possible ty, you have fun playing clown car or whatever.

    I disagree. Nothing wrong with screening rides. As an independent contractor you are wise to not start rides that you know will go bad.

    I am not so desperate I have to cling to every ping. I feel bad for anyone who has to drive that way.

    If for any reason you have to tell someone no, cancel before you start the trip.

    You can't afford to take a rating hit for telling someone you can't fit all 5-6 people in your car.

    If you had a cab instead of Uber, you could pick up the jerks because they can't rate you. I'd pick up jerky pax if I had a cab, but with Uber I would skip them. Uber penalizes the driver for picking up the jerks because of the rating system.

    I allow open containers in my car only because a for-hire vehicle is exempt from the open-container law in Nevada. One of the few good laws we have here in NV.

    Uber enslave you more by creating this rating system, bull****, I never care ,I'm nice if someone leave negative feedback, you can't do nothing about it, keep driving if you want, for I'm done with uber, no benifits. My rating I never get a damn, some passengers said I will give you 5 star I said give me 5$ tips and stick me with one star, the only issue is money, who drive for uber full time? Man you have to get yourself a real job. Uber just temporary solution untill you get a job.and drive if there is surge .
