I've been a part-timer for about a year. I've noticed not only the the pay getting lower but the rider quality is getting worse and worse. My experience during the past couple weeks. Last week I pick up a threesome. They were still drunk from the night before, loud and obnoxious. I couldn't wait to get them out of the car. Gave them a 1 star. Didn't drive again for a week. Today I pick up someone 10 mins away from a nice part of town which usually guarantees a $20 in my pocket fare. Nope, another guy still admittedly drunk from the night before smelling of pot going to work of all places. I made $4 in my pocket. He gets a 3* just for wasting my time. Ok. I accept a ping about 5 mins. away. Drive up and it's a husband and wife with a kid running around and a four foot tall stroller. I don't think so. Let's abuse the Uber X driver and stuff a $400 stroller into his trunk and have him listen to our toddler yell for 20 mins. I do a slow drive through their buildings loop and burn my tires out of there..... cancel. Then I take a ping which I realize when I get there is the mall. Nope.... I cancel. Not giving another cheapo a ride with the bags in my trunk for $4. Got enough scratches on the back bumper. Next, accept a ping about 4mins. away. Guy comes out of his house with a moving box and a desperate look on his face. Nope.... not a moving service. He'll say something like, hey dude, I got some more boxes can we put them in the trunk. Oh yea and I need to go 5 blocks. I drive off. Just not going to be abused for $4 Ping from Target. Nope. Ping from supermarket. nope. So I sign off until around 5PM. Pull down a quiet street and park at the address. Some guy strolls up to my car with a beer cup. I say, sorry no drinks. He says oh! closes the door and walks away. Then I see him with another person and they have drinks as well. No thanks. No more drunkers. Cancel. I have canceled or refused pings 11 of the last 12 trips. Absolute waste of time and risk of abuse. I am real close to signing off on this gig. I'd rather make $15 an hour with the delivery services than $19 an hour with the bottom dwelling transportation public. Thats my gripe........ whats yours.
