Other than not accepting any rides with ratings other than 4.91-4.99...

Call them ! That's it. Sounds simple, right ? And it is. Just call them right away every time.... Tell them you just wanted to make sure you were in the right place.

But of course the real reason is, because if they sound like a drunk, belligerent, ,mentally challenged.... Or even the slightest bit arrogant.... Or rude... OR, if they have a bunch of drunken idiots friends trying to interrupt them on the phone...

Hit the cancel button quickly, and grab another ride to try again.

Who here can't tell by how a person talks if it's going to be a good, smooth ride or not ???

Once again, sorry Uber. But they don't pay me enough to deal with drunken idiots.

Jesus, I wish these people all just smoked weed. They would be so much easier to deal with.

If they’re smoking weed they’ll want to make fast food stops and will definitely be making a mess. Your point is well made regarding the phone call.

Soooo everybody in the club is drunk?
Everyone in the club that isn't a DD (Designated Driver, and giving their own rides). :tongue: Well, or the people that are dropping ruffies, but I'm guessing they have a van... :eek:

I have a low opinion of clubs. :biggrin:

Probably only 25% are drunk to the point of being belligerent but a phone call might help you recognize which ones you don’t want to deal with.
I worked as barmaid for 2 years, I'm pretty good recognizing them.. trust me, what you see there is nothing compared to what we must deal here.. you know how people behave when they're away from home.. and American people are specialist at partying:smile:
But I desagree: sometimes, drunks are the best pax

Well, I don't do the drunk crowd, so I can't say for sure, but I'd imagine the ones who just lean their head to the side and pass out until you get them home would probably be decent pax.

Stoners are not always easy to deal with. Here's proof that stoners still fall out of vehicles.

Typical initial conversation with a stoner pax.

Fishchris: Where to?

Stoner pax: I don't know.

But stoners are the only students in math class who have no problem with the metric system. The teacher asks: "How many grams in an ounce" and every student looks perplexed except the stoner who blurts out "28, man!"
