    Any good fisherman knows that pax must comply with the driver's suggestion before it's too late, well this is what happens when you think your penis is larger than the driver's.

    As I scoped the last flight for the day on my phone and decided to hit the airport, I entered the queue and decided to get a trip going home, it so happens I get one of these self entitled pax that after being asked for their destination decided to tell me "home and make it snappy, do your job" that is all it took for that poor sob to meet the longest wait in his life.

    As the pax cursed and refused to cancel, I told him I was going home then the 30 minute wait ensued, who would cave in first? the guy with the car or the guy trying to show he had "the power", after I was completely sure that all uber drivers were gone from the airport, I decided to cruise the airport to see if there were any cabs left and as predicted, they were all gone.

    As I passed by the circle I scoped a single person waiting sitting on a bench in one corner and another on the other corner, as I exited the airport, I decided to get my 5 bucks before I left so I cancelled and whatddaya know? I get another request, it seems the other guy was also trying to catch an uber and as I accepted the request the other guy said he had been waiting for over 40 mins to get a ride by uber I told him I was going the opposite way and that I was going home, the guy said - I will make it worth your while - and so he did, I took him to his destination and he tipped me 20 bucks as for that poor self entitled pax, I hope he enjoyed waiting for his 40 min away cab to pick him up since all uber drivers were gone already.

    Tell me that you aren't going to cancel again.

    That's a lot of effort and work. Would it have been easier just to cancel yourself and tell him to leave the car?

    I think they talked on the phone and he never picked him up. Hard to tell.

    Sounds like he never made it into the car, whether he talked to him on the phone or at the window.

    "Make it snappy, do your job"

    Yeah, go f$!& yourself, buddy.

    You waited 30 minutes for someone to cancel? Now thats dedication right there....

    Since you dont actually know who the pax is or if he was alone, theres a better chance his friend ordered an uber and he was already home laughing at the fact that you havent cancelled that request yet.

    Not sure what you think you accomplished besides waste 25 minutes of your life.

    That's a lot of effort to spite someone for making a dumb comment.

    Seriously, it is like these people test us to see if we will be ethical or not.

    The comment was merely a symptom of the pax mental condition. That he has rule over subcontractors.

    I'm not that confrontational, if a pax I want to cancel won't, I'll cancel for him and just forget about it and move on.

    I don't believe it's right to ask for a destination, cherry picking is wrong. But Uber now allows you to filter two runs per shift, but those runs might only be a couple of miles in your direction, no where near where you want to go, but sometimes you can get lucky.

    You win the award for most amount of your time wasted to try and prove a point.
    You are no different than your petty rider.
    Both of you are foolish and deserve the 1 star rating each gave.

    As an uber driver i think what you did is ******y. Once you accept the trip you should commit to it. Scumbag.

    Easy way to get deactivated. If you don't cancel the ride and leave it active for 30 minutes and are driving without the passenger in the car, all it takes is some screen shots and the passenger complaining to Uber. Uber will side with the passenger.

    You lucked out this time believe some passengers will take the time and Uber always sides with the passenger not worth the risk unless you don't care about driving.
