No Tip = 1 Star

I've decided that any passenger who doesn't give me a tip when I'm providing the following:

Water
Sanitary Wipes
Gum
Mints
Cologne
Perfume

No tip = 1 Star (and I love doing this to 5 star rated customers)

PAX will wonder why their ratings are getting so low all the sudden. That is a simple way of alerting us drivers that we are about to pick up a "non-tipper". Hopefully you create a SQUARE account and tell them the following and they will put 2 and 2 together. "I know there's been some confusion, so I just wanted to let you know that we now have a way for you to put a tip on your cc if you want!" If they say "sure", open the SQUARE APP, let them choose the amount and slide their card through the reader. Takes 2 seconds.

You can't one star someone who is following Uber's guidelines. Yes, they are stupid, and yes, they should figure out that service people deserve tips.

So just stop giving away stuff.

Quick question, are you a driver or do you work in a bathroom of a strip club? :smiles: you forgot to mention handing paper towels and soap.
You will soon find out that riders will retaliate and change your rating when they find out that theirs dipped after riding with you... So good luck sir :wink:

Tips are just not expected. I have a "Thank You" clear plastic tip jar above the radio in my minivan but never say anything to passengers. It's purpose is only to silently say "Tips are welcome".

Those who want to tip will and those who don't won't. My service or rating doesn't change for those who don't tip. Passengers who don't tip aren't breaking the "rules" so to speak. Tips are just not the Uber way, sadly.

I could picture what a 1* for no tipping pax would look like if all the drivers did that:

Hmm... Ping says they have a 3.0, do I accept? I surely won't accept below 3.0 as they don't tip. Oh but maybe the 3.8 pax is okay because he tips but vomits occasionally...

Ratings are not perfect but they do average out and are a good indicator of the type of passenger you can expect to get. Tips just aren't part of that equation, except that tipping after being obnoxiously drunk can get you extra stars, as long as no bodily fluids or damage was done.

But they can 1* us while following Uber's guidelines....?

I'm sorry, but I'd say 90% of the people realize there is no tip included at this point, especially all of those VIP passengers that realize rates have been cut more than in half since Uber's inception and all coming out of the drivers pockets. I don't 1* them, but they all lose a star for not tipping. I accepted another VIP trip today because it was a block from my house, nothing wrong with them - nice people, but they took about 4 minutes to come outside and didn't tip for their short *ss trip. 3 stars.
