I see lots of posts in this forum suggesting drivers do this and that to get back at Uber and the riders, for what they feel are unfair practices and or treatment. Has anyone thought about what might HELP Uber be more profitable, thus making more income for the drivers? A few days ago I picked up a rider on a longer trip. The rider started a conversation about what he had read in Uberpeople. He said he was horrified by some of the statements and actions of the drivers. He went on to say that he quit using Uber for two months based on a fear of what a driver might do. The rider explained that he was forced to use Uber on this trip as the cab cost was just way way to expensive and that the Lyft drivers were just as evil in their posts. During the ride I listened to him quote post after post of really unprofessional statements and things that drivers have done to get back at riders. There was little I could say as I read this forum and see the same posts he saw. Toward the end of the trip I apologized for what he had read and assured him that not all drivers agree with or participate in this type of behaviour. At the end of the trip he thanked me and gave a nice cash tip. Hopefully he will come back to Uber. If drivers want to increase their income, Uber must sustain and grow their market share. Drivers should be involved in growing Uber's market share, not try to destroy it. If drivers want a better income they need to STOP: VILIFYING UBER AND THIER RIDERS!!!! POSTING EVIL STATEMENTS AND THREATS!!!! ACTING AS THOUGH THE WORLD OWES THEM A LIVING WITHOUT ANY EFFORT TO EARN IT!!!! ACTING LIKE CHILDREN!!!! ANYONE WITH A BRAIN CAN FIGURE OUT THAT THE STATEMENTS MADE BY MANY IN THIS FORUM WILL DO NOTHING MORE THAN HURT RIDERSHIP AND REDUCE PROFITS FOR US ALL. GROW UP FOLKS.....IF YOU DON'T LIKE UBER THEN FIND A NEW LINE OF WORK... Thank you. AND NO I DO NOT WORK FOR UBER CORP.
