    These won't make you go postal, but the cumulative effect can make the difference between a good day and a bad day. I'll start:

    - When it's raining just enough to require the wipers, but not enough to prevent them from making noise on the slowest setting.
     
  2. When you get a perfectly nice/cool pax but they reek of weed.

    When you wait 4+ minutes, and then the rider says, "Oh I forgot that I drove into town. Take me to the parking garage where I left it."

    Ohh, I thought you were going to bring up the new home screen where you're in a messy way, thrown into other cities and forced to see people's rants on blogs.

    Pings that direct me to the wrong side of a shopping mall. I had one of those last week at Sharpstown. I finally called and we worked it out.

    "We're in front of the sign that says 'Xxx.'"

    Turns out, ALL of the mall entrances say that.

    Coughing/sneezing/snack-eating pax.
     
  8. Eating with out asking.

    Opening window/ adjusting vents without asking. More than happy to adjust the a/c if you ask.

    Mine fall into the "just did this, then it gets undone" category.

    - Clean the windshield and car in front goes through a puddle spraying a fine dirty, oily mist over it

    - Clean side windows only to have very next pax leave fingerprints over them pointing out something stupid or hitting the window to say "bye buddy!"

    - Vacuum car out only to have first pax of shift track dirt in. Bonus points for group of 4 with dirty feet

    - No pings so I find a nice parking space and just as I am backing in... PING
     
  10. Accept a ping and they cancel right away but not until you already took an exit or made a turn in that direction.
     
  11. When she looks amazing but sits directly behind me

    Slamming doors where the whole car rocks.

    That may very well be a major annoyance to most drivers.

    It is one of my number one annoyance. I can let most things slide, but it seems every pax slams the doors getting in and out. especially millennials

    Breathing without asking first. Get in. Stfu. Gtfo.
     
  16. Driving 5 minutes, then waiting 4 minutes, then going .8 miles.

    Okay, that's a major annoyance as well.

    On this point there should never be a ride that is less than a cancellation fee..I got burned on two of them last night.

    Pays out less I meant to say.
     
  18. A 3.5 surge and it's 5 people for Uberx!
     
  19. That's when you break the rules

    Agreed. Not worth risking a ticket/fine for $17.50 instead of $5.

    Livin on the edge!
