Permanently Deactivated Today (not good)

I’m a very fair and reasonable driver.
4 years and always 4.9+.
I put up with a lot but there is a line of respect that gets breached every now and then. I had a ridiculously entitled and rude passenger who kept giving me attitude about the pickup, who crossed that line, so I cancelled the ride, before the trip even started. She called uber and compained, probably made up some crazy story and now my accounts done for. I’ve had a few incidents where I’ve called people out on their bs, but I haven’t done anything un-safe, illegal, or even immoral.

This lady was expecting me to know where she was at this casino (with multiple entrances), she kept saying, “You should know my name and where I am!”, I said, “Ma,am, you clearly don’t understand how this application works in its entirety, that is why I am calling you to figure out what entrance you are at”. She kept going on, super rude, super annoying, super intoxicated, demanding & just obnoxious. So I pulled up to her and told her to find another drive because I don’t drive around rude and entitled PAX’s. Drove off & cancelled.

Now I’m deactivated? Even though I have 4,500 great trips, that’s funny.

Any luck fighting something like this? What about filing for unemployment?

It feels like something is missing here. The message you got says that you've had multiple reports against you. And there's no mention about what you were accused of. I'm not saying I'm doubting you, and I know pax lie and Uber deactivates unjustly. I'm just wondering if you're sharing the whole story? Any previous incidents? If everything is as you stated, you should be able to go to a GLH with your dash cam footage and set the record straight.

No dash cam unfortunately and that’s all the information relevant to what had happened. Like I said, I have called people out on their BS a few times and I’m sure I’ve offended a few liberal millennials here in the great state of california, but 4 years of 4.9+ service should speak to how I roll.

That’s the plan in the meantime, getting my updated vehicle inspection tomorrow. Fortunately I’m 5stars on that just hardly use it. I’m just concerned that I won’t have the same demand or business as I had on uber. Lyft been pretty comparable lately?

Without a dash cam, all I can say is good luck

If
east bay and west or Tahoe. You will want to shoot yourself in sac area as a solo gig.

Go to the glh and ask for the manager.

I can let you borrow my Uber cow bell if they don’t listen. It’s pretty obnoxious.

Ask for arbitration.

If people are a problem, try DD, GH, Skipcart or the many other "non people in your car" platforms.
5 out of 7,500 people were the problem. Rough estimation of passengers from 4,500 rides. Gonna get back on Lyft tmrwz.

Tbh I kind of want to file for unemployment. Being as AB5 will roll out here in CA next year, it’s not uncommon for Cali drivers to qualify for unemployment from the this gig. Take a break for a few months look for a better job.

Pax can make up shit anytime, but this is probably where you gave her her ammo.

This is also why I don't enguage with any negative communication with pax. Be the good guy, and zip it. Make a report with support.

My favorite response when I want to cancel based on their pre-ride behavior: I think you'll be happier with a different driver.

That, right there, was not good. Better to have circled around,
without further dialog with pax, then, after waiting out the timer:
CANCEL .... "Rider not here". (Could not find rider!)

Your remark created road pax-rage.
A slip of the lip, has sunk your ship.
You can't un-fart. Damage was done by remark!

Hope you have success with reinstatement.
Next time zip it!

First off, Lyft is 3 times worse than Uber. And Lyft passengers know this and act accordingly.

You made the fatal mistake of communicating with passenger.

If you get reinstated (go to Uber hub and beg for "one more chance" and also make up a story)

1) Do NOT ever answer passenger phone call. Set up your phone to autoblock Uber and Lyft incoming call for convenience sake.

Uber Lyft is paying us bus fare wages ($2.62). The bus doesnt wait. Nor should we.

That was really dumb to communicate negatively with pax by phone. After 4000 rides you should have known the game.

2) Do NOT ever call passenger (except under exceedingly rare circumstances.)

3) Have rideshare dashcam. Working. So passenger can clearly see they are being recorded.

4) See rule #1.
