    Why do you think i ordered ubereats?

    Mebbe cuz your a lazy POS that doesnt mind spending too much money to have something delivered, but wont tip the person who delivered it. Just a guess, ma'am.

    On Friday and Saturday nights I stay on the app to take home the service staff from certain bars and clubs. A deal I worked out. Here is how it works:

    The bar agrees to provide a $5 tip to each service staff member. I show up at a certain time and one rider keeps requesting until I get the ride. Uber X. I take 4 staff members. I hit the first drop off, then they change the address to the next drop and so on, until all are home. Then return and do it again.

    It seems to work pretty good. Still need to run it by uber to make sure they are okay with it.

    Wait - why does the bar give $5 to each staff member? do they then give the $5 to you when they exit the car? Is there something shady going on? This sounds above-board, it's all in the app except for cash tips (if that's what's happening) so Uber is getting their share.

    Yes, the tip is given to the driver by the riders as they exit at each location. It is the bars contribution to their staffs trip home. CASH tips are allowed here. And I think uber would be okay with it. Just going to have to ask I guess.

    Here's one for you. Today I picked up a pax at the local market to take him home. On the way he started asking about drivers being able to rate riders. I told him yes we can rate them on how well they behaved etc. I said a lot of drivers may give out bad rating for someone that don't tip. I dropped him off at his house and he added a $6.00 tip to his $4.00 ride LOL.

    Draw 5 stars on a napkin & put it where the tip goes to really drive it home.

    Lesson learned...the people that can afford to tip don't, not all of them but a large majority. I have gotten good tips from the wealthy but a small percentage compared to the number I pick up. CEO of power company, no tip. Owner of gas station chain, nice tips.

    The people who slave for their paychecks tip. Picked up a kid (young man) from a trailer park, he was going to work at a pizza joint. Flabbergasted when I saw he tipped $4 in the app. Another guy I take works at Walmart tips $3-$4 each time.

    Had a pax whose SO is Uber driver and she's in the service industry. No tip.
