    Saturday just gone I was doing my shift as per normal, when a rather intixicated individual got in the car .

    I had done music going and did my usual greet of “ Hi , how you goin ?
    There’s sweets in the tray and water in the cup holders and a phone charger if you need it .
    I then started on my way
    About ten minutes into drive I felt something in my neck and didn’t realise but the rider was spitting sweets at me .

    I couldn’t even fathom what was going on but this rider was about to get out of my car . I turned off the app and said this ride finishes now . Get the f- out of my car you animal .
    I would say drug affected .
    I finally got to use the safety button as he refused to get out and was getting hit under the collar .
    This never worried me cause I’ve way or the other he was getting out of car.

    I couldn’t believe how quick police turned up and told them what happened which he was arrested
    I had to go to station to do report and also report to Uber .
    The officer said spitting is the same as assault ing someone and this will be taken very seriously .
    I still can’t bekieve someone could be such a grub but that’s what happened . Thank goodness 99.999 percent of people are great .
    I have very thick skin and love getting people home , but not at this cost

    My personal experience with water is that it added no value. (Note the past tense.)

    I think the best value I got from it was when I pulled up to a traffic signal, and there an old guy selling newspapers. The weather was very hot and muggy. I gave him a bottle of cold water, right from my cooler bag. He deserved it.

    Because

    I don’t make minimum wage .

    You mustn’t do nights. It’s great for hydrating the riders and the cost is low . It’s the 1 percenters that count to me. Everybody is different

    I give all Ants 1 STAR, for dishing out scooby snacks, drinks, and aux cords.

  11. Sorry to hear about that. I wouldn't have thought less of you if you clocked the PAX with a hook.

    That makes a lot of sense , now Uber have technology for serial I star offenders who keep giving 1 star to drivers . It doesn’t record it and actually has reverse affect

    Thanks

    Maybe he was an uber driver that didn't like that you were giving out that stuff?

    Every market is different when giving out freebies. I know I won't do it but to each their own. Glad this pax was hauled away. Press charges maybe?

    I kind of like the fact that he added a second picture. Puts more of a face with the name and he looks more serious in the second picture.

    Sounds like you have a real handle on it. No pun intended. Great work you’re going places!
