    I hope you know, that instead of picking up your phone, you could of picked up a taxi cab and made 3X more than what you are making now.

    Too many of you who made 60k a year at a regular job, thought you needed a side gig too, and you ruined a business where we could of made the exact same as you in our Taxis.

    I heard today that a CEO of a major fast food joint does UBER a few days to get out of the house and he's a millionaire.

    If you don't need the money, get off the road!!!!!!

    First you ruined the taxi cab business, and now you are so obsessed with money, the millionaires are even doing it. Go play golf!!! Its our not fault your wife and kids are so annoying you have be on the road taking our money to get away from them.

    I can't wait till the automated cars come already. You rich drivers will have to go get a divorce and face your problems head on.

    You seem upset that you aren't making money driving for Uber. Maybe you should become a CEO of a fast food joint too.

    Uber has one major market and that is millennials.

    But, I have also found that very wealthy people have a fascination with Uber and Lyft and do use the services on occasion.

    Uber has also ruined it for the travel agents, bellmen and concierge. The hotels HATE FUBER!

    He's mad....

    I get it to a point. Our resident Atlanta Driver Day claims to have a $300k a year job and drives a $110k Tesla around for his Guilt Free Whiskey and Cigar collection....

    I know if I were making near that kind of money, I wouldn't even consider Uber... but that's just me...

    Yeah I don't get it. Why put up with the headache?

    To think that i wake up everyday and have to do this, and a millionaire or 300k guy might be out there with me waiting on the same road. That's just ridiculous. If we are next to each other waiting, UBER should at least have the decency to give me the better ride over him. Let him get the pool rides and give me the airport rides.

    People making over 60k should be resigned to UBER POOL

    He's 100% Select, doubt he bothers with X and he's in an affluent neighborhood that has a lot of Select request.

    $60k cut off point? I dunno about that, but 100k definitely sounds right. If I started making $60k a year, I'd probably still drive probably one night a week.

    I'm one of those people with a full-time professional job who does this 1-2 times per month to make a bit of $, get out of the house and even have some fun. Hate to get all capitalistic on you, but if you don't like it, perhaps pick a line of work that actually requires a skill and isn't so easy for just anyone with a pulse and no criminal record to break into.

    Hotel bell hops and concierges have been screwed over by Uber. They used to get tipped for loading bags in a Taxi or Limo. Now the Uber pax don't tip them just like they don't tip Uber drivers. I have let them load luggage in my car hoping they will get tipped and then maybe i get lucky as well. I get a disgusted look from the poor slob when they stiff him. Then i take the pos to the airport unload their luggage and watch them tip the skycap right in front of me. Me and the bell hop? Nah. Screw you.

    60k in above, let you do UBER POOL all week and nothing else. See how long you last.

    And none of you will be able to work New Years Eve. I hate greedy people, makes me want to puke thinking you 60k scum we're on the streets New Years Eve! And no Holiday driving at alll!!!! I should be in charge of UBER. We would have a nice socialist system running where the poor make all the money, and the greedy pigs dine on UBER POOL

    I'd also set the distance of the rides for you greedy pigs. People making 60K to 80k can get up to ten mile POOL rides, and everybody making over with their regular jobs can only get 2-5 mile pool rides.

    Nothing says I'm a loser than driving uber when you don't need the money. Go play golf, go bowling, go sit on a bench and read the paper, go watch a movie, go get a massage, maybe find some friends to hang out with.

    A CEO of a fast food company chooses a less expensive way to get a ride. He's being smart with his money. That's how poeple become rich, chum.

    "The world is changing and I'm not prepared for the inevitable!" It's no one else's responsibilty if a job no longer pays the same amount in the same way that it used to. Things change. Learn to roll with it. Better your circumstances. Keep your eyes on the horizon and be prepared. Bell Hop is not a career.

    What business did Uber ruin? The taxi business? There are still taxis, but now riders have more options. Are you saying that Uber broke a monopoly? No sympathy there.
