Ride from Local Walgreens to Motel less than a mile long

I did not realize it was a B.S. $3 short ride until the pax got into the vehicle and I confirmed it was them. I looked at the fair as I'm about to start Ubering now, for the day, and I'm like wow. How can Uber justify taking $3.93 and the driver only gets $3??
You cant see the length and time of the trip before accepting it?

No, I'm not a pro member because I don't have the 85% Acc. rate from when I was declining a lot of rides in the summer
 
Oh wow, that's how it works? I've been doing it wrong this whole time.

Indeed. You have a acceptance rate below 85% which essentially means you are leaving money on the table. Maybe one has been doing it wrong this whole time by taking other drivers sloppy seconds?

Luckily you accepted some rides otherwise you'd just be driving or sitting in your car letting rides literally pass you by.

This summer was what messed with my acceptance rating, otherwise I'm near 100% and working my way to that 85%.

I don't take anyone's sloppy seconds, bro. But I guess you know how to do that, both on the clock for U/L, and at home for free (that's not hair gel).

You must be new here?
Couldn't be further from the truth in many cases!

Quality > quantity

tohunt4me, I don't knock your hustle, Bud. I hope New Orleans continues to be a lucrative market for you. Be safe out there.

Uber made more money than you, that should be unacceptable!
Nope. To quote Lyftuber100. I should accept ride, take the trip, and cash in (and then shut up!). $3, woo hoo, I'll be rolling in the Benjamins. Who lives in a world where gasoline, vehicle depreciation, vehicle maintenance, and time management, amongst other things, exist? Lmfao!

Did you rate rider 1 star?

Unless they tipped you in cash, should have rated 1 star. at least 5 mins pick up for 3.8 mins trip. They deserve it.
I'm assuming to weed them out for future trips?

It was like a month ago now but I can remember that trip clear as day. Customer smoked her cigarette up until opening my door (I had to air the car out on the highway, windows open, and febreeze for 10 minutes after). No tip, crap $3 trip. I guess I'm still too nice and also somewhat gun shy, yes, even at this point, because the one time I rated a crap passenger who was a pompous jerk and purpously slammed my doors a 1 star, he in turn noticed and rated me a one star. I guess I'm just nervous of more one star ratings, otherwise I'd rate more passengers a 2 or 1.

Should rate 1 star for short trip riders unless auto added pool ride since they are on the way.
Don't worry about having low rating from them. Never see each other again is the main thing.

FYI - Acceptance rate (and Cancellation rate) are based just on the past 30 days. Tallies from declined and accepted rides (and cancelled rides) roll off after 30 days. So, Acceptance and Cancellation ratings are both pretty quick/easy to fix (if you want to).
