I've had several of those 1 mile rides...From Walmart.
Same comment: "just too hot to walk". Last guy bought milk for mom and beer for himself. Must have done mom a favor. Charged her credit card for the items...and the ride. Taxi would get $10/$15. You have been invited by Uber\Lyft to help them out. $2.62. Another reason the driver retention is worst of any business around.
