I'm a great driver

Had to use UberX twice today, both drivers I got were 4.6.

First one, ignores the pin, ignore the SMS with description of EXACT pick up location, stops on the opposite side of a busy street 20 meters away, puts hazards on. Had to get to him. Empty gatorade bottle on the floor, dirty windows, dying car suspension.

Second one, forces the talk when I'm clearly not interested, does not signal when changing lanes, misses a turn because of his talking, tells me to rate him 5 star because "it matters".

Yeah, I now know why I'm 4.88

This isn't hard, pick me up at the correct location, have a CLEAN car, shut the hell up, drive NORMAL. 5 Star.

Hello Great Driver !

One thing I can't stand is Uber drivers who come on here bad mouthing other drivers. If you want white glove service call an SUV or something. "I'm a great driver".... Give this guy a bone folks.

For .81 cents and 18 cents a minute u want your lordship to picked by a limo.Sorry to say u stink, people do uber in well maintained good cars some time pay from thier pocket picking up your a$$., u don't deserve better service than this for the amount u paid , with upfront fares rates are further down. One more u cannot read messages while driving. Rating star badges are for empty headed drivers like u

You're crazy. If I stop 20 meters away, you are coming to the car. whether you like it or not. If you stand there and think I'll do an illegal uturn, I'll just sit and wait for my no show fee. The only time I'll make a uturn is on University Avenue and that is because, there are places to make legal and safe uturns. I don't care about a bad rating or complaint, IJDGAF

If you stand there and think I'll do an illegal uturn,
Per MTO, this is how to make a "Legal" U- turn

U-turn
Before you make a U-turn, check to make sure there is no sign saying not to.

To make a U-turn safely, you must be able to see well in both directions. It is illegal to make a U-turn on a curve in the road, on or near a railway crossing or hilltop, or near a bridge or tunnel that blocks your view. Never make a U-turn unless you can see at least 150 metres in both directions.

To make a U-turn, signal for a right turn, check your mirror and over your shoulder and pull over to the right side of the road. Stop. Signal a left turn and when traffic is clear in both directions, move forward and turn quickly and sharply into the opposite lane. Check for traffic as you turn.

What? Cmon man nobody is better than uberfast. That's besides the point though. I sent my wife in an X yesterday because I was too lazy to drive.

I gave her two $5 bills and told her to give both drivers $5. I told her to call me when SHE is ready so the driver doesn't wait for her (I ordered with my account).

I asked how the drivers were, she said one was older European looking guy who was quiet and the other was a Korean guy (I think Harry70 friend) and she said both were fine gentlemen. I 5 starred both and gave them $1 per star. That's how it's done, ladies.

No way he tipped. I drove this X driver to the airport a while back and we talked about how driving is and what not, I even told him I can't believe people don't tip and how cheap they are. Buddy didn't even tip me even though I gave him a $15 off code. It's guys like that that deserve to be uber tuk tuk drivers.

U r gem of a person, riders now a day want 50000$ car to pick them up for 5$ fare , driver should offer them Evian water , chocolates, mints , open door for them , break laws and read their messages and make wrong u turns, , I miss my old day of uber when rider were more caring and know the value of service we r providing for pennies, their is no appreciation just complains for 5$ fare, I m proud of fellow drivers who do their level best in these challenging times

You guys are full of it.

One thing I know is any job doing is worth doing well.

Crap pay is no excuse. You don't see guys in mcdonalds making you the wrong burger, yet they get paid minimum wage.

Making a u-turn was legal there, he just didn't care. Having garbage on the floor is not fine. Having a car in a crap mechanical state is not fine. Forcing convo is not fine as well as asking for ratings.

No, I do not ask for $50000 car with water and mints, but I do expect the absolute minimum to be provided. Just pick me up at the pin, say hello, have a clean and a safe car, drive properly, say good bye.

Did I tip? They are lucky I didn't report them.

My rider rating is 5.0 and I've used uber dozens of times is several countries

You see, uberfast is right again, of course he didint tip, and he freely admits it. You're lucky the drivers didn't throw you out of their car, luckily they didn't know you would talk behind their back. Next time say something to the driver, be like "your car isn't clean man", or "don't you think you need to fix your car, it's making weird sounds"... Then get out, say thank you, tip them so they can afford to fix their cars.

Big deal. there is an empty gatorade bottle on the floor.

I had someone put a half full bottle of water in the front seat pocket. I look back after every ride but I didn't think someone would do that, and I was driving all day people in and out, who knows, maybe someone down rated me for cleanliness. smh

See, here's the problem. Everyone think sthat he is perfect. When you drive, riders are a**holes but when you use uber as a rider, drivers are. Lolz.
If you are that concerned of these things, why didn't you order Uber select or Black? And 'thanks to me I didn't report them".
oh come on, you were going to report as he was 'forcing' you in conversation?? Come on.
Now I have realized why drivers are reported for unknown reasons. For 5-10 dollars,you need best mechanical , shining car with high customer service standard where you are picked uo at 0 meter not have to walk even 20 meters else you gonna report them.
Fantastic.
Secondly, how the hell you can read an SMS while driving.

First off, it's illegal for drivers to be looking at text messages while driving. Second it's much easier for you to get your ass across the street then for him to do a uturn. If you knew he was coming in that direction, why didn't you just cross the street to wait for him?

Gatrorade bottles could be left behind by last pax and driver missed it. Suspension problem is probably cause you were cheap and ordered X. If you want a smoother ride, order a Mercedes.
