    This ain't kindergarten, we don't work for gold stars... You spent 7 hours of your time and vehicle costs to gross 80 bucks, sounds like it ain't worth it in your area.

    Haha... I do wear a wedding ring, doesn't matter. One dude asked me to go have a drink with him, I told him I was married, and he said "well, your husband doesn't have to know!" o_O

    Ratings drop on weekend nights for two reasons: riders taking revenge for surges on your ratings and riders pissed that you don't cater to their sometimes illegal requests (to stuff too many people in your little car, to pick them up in a god awful dangerous spot that is convenient only to them or to let them have open alcohol drinks.) Just can't help rating dips during weekend nights, it's part of the territory.

    Unless you want to buy your rating by offering free items to your customers your rating is going to fluctuate anywhere from 4.80 to 4.87 on a regular basis. Just keep doing a good job and you will be fine. You are nowhere near being afraid of being deactivated.

    Ratings matter, especially when you try and sell that high mileage car...

    "Do you have service records?"

    "No, but take a look at my rating."

    Don't worry about ratings. Ratings don't mean crap!!! A 5.0 driver gets paid the same as a 4.6 driver. It's actually a disadvantage. Uber tries to pair VIP pax to high rated drivers. Even though there are closer drivers, they expect you to drive farther to pick up the VIP. Uber doesn't care about you. I have a 4.88. I'm polite and professional. I don't give extras. Uber doesn't pay well enough for that. Been doing this almost 2 years. If they don't tip, I give 4 stars. If I Uber full time in Atlanta, I can make over $1,000 a week. Work mornings during the week, UberEats during lunch, and you have to work the drunk shift Fri and Sat nights. Add Lyft. Run both. I do 10-15 Uber's to 1 Lyft. Lyft helps fill the gaps. If I have requests from both, I cancel the Uber. Lyft pays more and tipping is part of the app. Don't drive more than 10 minutes to pick anyone up. Waste of time. Uberpool: I show up, I wait 2 minutes, I cancel and leave. No call. Pool will kill your hourly income and they tend to leave poorer ratings. Also screenshot any promo you are trying to achieve, so you have proof when you have to argue for it. Hope these tips help.

    One false accusation by a disgruntled passenger and you are finished

    You said it perfectly. These passengers are animals and we drivers have to act and protect ourselves like we're transporting animals that can lash out at any moment.

    In the past, my ratings always took a hit during surge. Pax didn't realize that $30 Uber just cost them $120 until they exit the car and get the invoice on their phone with a picture of my sweet face. Immediate 1-star. Now, with the new Uber app, the customer gets an upfront cost estimate including the surge amount. So on NYE I didn't get any low ratings. I think everyone that drives a lot of surge will now see their ratings slowly go up.
