How to get pings

Since being closest to the rider MO longer guarantees you get the ping I thought I'd share some techniques that still work to get a ping immediately.

Swipe your credit card at a gas pump.
Sit down on the toilet.
Lite a cigarette.
Take a road without anywhere to turn around.
Pull into your home.
Be out of sight and earshot of your phone.
Pull up to a railroad crossing with a slow freight train.
Be surrounded by nothing but pool riders.
Place a quarter in the vacuum machine.

Feel free to help out your fellow drivers and contribute your own sure fire ways to get pings.

I always get a ping downtown while I'm desperately looking for a place to take a leak. It never fails! LOL

Reminds me of a time I went to take a piss at mcdonalds. One hands holds you know what, and I get an uber ping. So I had to use my free hand to grab a phone to accept a ping. The other dude in the washroom laughed at me. Oh well.

Another case, again McDonald's. I am taking a piss and I hear uber phone pinging... not mine, I went offline. I'm washing my hands and I see a guy running from the bathroom stall to outside. I am pretty sure that was his phone. He didn't wash his hands :frown:
