Some Serious Shady $#!^

If people have brought this up before, I apologize but this has happened twice and it's BS if Uber has not resolved it or change the Cancellation percentage.

I get a Ride Request and it says it's a "5 Minute" drive. So, I arrive and it's a young couple with an infant in Hayward. I'm thinking, 5-Minute Ride? That's probably to Union City or elsewhere here in Hayward. The couple loads up and I start the Ride, BAM! Modesto. MODESTO!?!?!? WT(actual)F?!?!?! I decide to take them because I thought these people seem to be in distress and it's probably the App that screwed with the Driver because other Drivers have cancelled on them. I chalk it up to Karma that hopefully it will payback someday. And in a way it does, but that's a different story.

Now, I start thinking, maybe it was a glitch and a very rare instance. So, let's jump 2 weeks later. I have a Destination Filter set from Oakland to Fremont BART because I have to get my son from practice and I make it all the way to Fremont and I'm about a mile away from Fremont BART. I get a Ride Request, it says it's a 2-Minute ride. No problem, get another Ride towards the Quest Bonus and I go home. Rider gets in, I start the Ride, BAM! Fairfield. FAIRFIELD!?!?! WTF AGAIN? I'm thinking this has got to be such a rare occurrence but yet I get it twice in less than 2 weeks.

Is this a regular occurrence? I've been driving for Part Time for 3 years with about 9000 Riders and never have seen this before. Sorry for the long read and thank you for feedback on this.

I'd call Uber useless support on those. A crack in the code? Glitch? Who knows, but WTF, with you on the anger......I love it when ping says long ride 30 min. But once i get pax, it jumps to 45 or more minutes. sheesh.
