Lets play "What would you do"....

Went out driving late last night, around 12am. First trip on Lyft took me to 151st and hwy 69 down south. I waited in the area for a few min and got a request for 231st st in Spring Hill. 20 min (about 15 miles) further south. I'm like damn that could be really good or really bad. I declined first time, then same request came again and I reluctantly accepted. Note, I didn't go, I really wanted her to call so we could chat about the trip and where she might be going. If I knew she was going quite a ways up north then I would do it, but my luck she was just going a mile or two home...

It was lyft so don't really care about acc rate. I just about called her but decided not to, but if she would have called or messaged in app some more info I might have gone.

Unless it's a hotel or casino during early morning airport run times, if more than 3 min away, I let it pass. Acceptance rate is around 15%

Why wouldn't you have called the passenger? Seems like a situation where a call would have been warranted. Find out whether it would have been worth it to head down there.

Accept and call (after declining the first ping but accepting the second ping). That's what I would have done.

Cause I really didn't want to do it, but was kind of leaving it up to the rider to call. It was lyft and I can't call from my tablet so it is kind of a pita to initiate a call. I guess I figured if the rider really needed a ride that bad they would call. Or maybe it wouldn't matter cause they would say just going a couple miles and I wouldn't go anyway. Worst case they lie and say they are going to KC, then get there and trip is just a few miles.

Really it was 15 miles further south than I already was. If that is a short trip in Spring hill at that hour it is over 30 dead miles for a $3 trip. If lyft or rider threw out an upfront $20 bonus or something then maybe.
Post automatically merged:

If it was uber then probably would have called, I can call through the app on tablet. Lyft is lacking in that dept, along with many other things. Lyft desperately needs a "dark mode". I use a 10" tablet for this and their app is ridiculously bright, I actually turn the brightness on tablet almost all the way down and it is still too bright.

Answered my own question last night. Was on an uber trip from OP to Harrah's last night and accepted a Lyft trip on the way that was 4 miles past harrahs. In total it was about 14 miles to get there, but was on on current uber trip covering most of that. The lyft trip was 1 mile....

As far as the cheap @@@@s going to Harrahs that asked for change for a $5 on a $30 trip, you got a 1 star. I have no "change" and $5 is about right for a $30 trip. Of course no tip in app..
