Hello readers. I'm about to ask you something that I know is pretty subjective and opinion based, so I realize you can only give me subjective and opinion based answers here. In a nut shell I want to ask how you guys would personally rate and interact with me if I were your passenger given my personal circumstances, and if you can, tell me how I can improve my rating and/or interactions with you and drivers like you. Apologies in advance that this is pretty long, but I truly appreciate you reading it. I want to try Uber or Lyft for the first time. The catch? I happen to be blind. The possible problem for you as a driver is that I have to ask you for assistance at both ends of the trip. Hopefully the upside is that I can make up for it through ratings, tips and overall conduct. So here's how I'm going to sell myself. Please rate me as if I really was your passenger and you had this experience with me. First, the assistance I would have to ask for. If you were picking me up at a public place, I would need you to come inside, go to the nearest available seating area to the door and call my name at which point I'd stand up. If you were picking me up at home you'd just have to knock at my front door and I'd come out. I'd hold on to you arm and have you lead me to your vehicle. At the end of the trip, I would ask you to lead me to my front door (if you're dropping me off at home, school or work), the counter (if you were dropping me off at a restaurant or cafe) or reception desk (if you were dropping me off at an office of some kind). The upsides: *If you went above and beyond to assist me, I'm absolutely going to show utmost gratitude and be polite; *You're pretty much guaranteed a five star from me, *I will tip as much as I can. The perhaps less pleasant realities: *As soon as the app matches me with you I'm going to text, explain the above situation and ask politely if you'd be willing to assist in the aforementioned manner. *If your answer is no, obviously I have no choice but to cancel (there's no point in having you come when there's no way I can know you're there and get to you). *Likewise, if your answer is maybe/ we'll see/ some other vague response or I can't reach you, I'm naturally going to cancel before the five minute grace period elapses. *In the unlikely event you say yes, but decide to wait in your car for five minutes and then leave anyway, I'm going to dispute the cancellation fee, using the text messages as evidence. Ratings: So you came in to the cafe, saw me at the closest table to the door, called my name and assisted me to your car. Now you're wondering how I'd rate you. I would give either a five star rating or a one star rating, nothing in-between. Before you dismiss this as harsh sounding, please allow me to qualify it by saying that the latter would be extremely hard to get. In fact I can think of only two situations in which I would rate one star: *You took me the very long way home -- a few miles in the wrong direction-- thinking I wouldn't know. I would know. *You left as soon as I got out of the car instead of assisting me to my door, leaving me stranded outside for potentially hours. *Otherwise you're guaranteed five stars and a tip no matter what. That's about it, so where do I stand? Would you agree to give me a bit of a hand to and from your vehicle? Say no and allow me to cancel with no hard feelings? Say yes but then leave on me anyway for a quick and easy cancel fee? What do I need to adjust about my proposed conduct and rating policy? Since paratransit rides are really hard to get sometimes, I'd like to try Uber when I'm in a pinch. I have to ask for the help, but I can imagine you get more than your share of annoying riders and the last thing I want to do is be one of them. Please rate, critique, chriticise, whatever you feel is appropriate. If I need to stay off your platform altogether, you can say that to. Thanks.
