Too much pressure with driving....

    I am been driving for 17 months and the pressure keeps building up each day. I simply transport the pax from point A to point B in a safe manner and reasonable amount of time. The only perk I offer is an I-Phone charge cord for use during the ride.

    The pressure is building as so many pax end the ride by saying I am the best UBER/LYFT driver they have ever had. They do not provide specifics. Many leave badges and 5 stars....and some leave tips.

    Please help me learn how to provide a lower level of customer service so the compliments will stop.

    Thank you in advance for your helpful advice.

    LOL !!!!! Interesting !!! You could always start sleeping in your car and not taking a bath. It works for a lot of drivers.

    Stop showering for a few weeks.

    Put an empty beer bottle in your cup holder.

    Try to figure out their political leanings, and tell them how wonderful the other side is.

    You can always greet them with " Hurry, get in! I think the police are closing in on me!!"

    Clean your ears with q-tips then leave them visible in your cup holders.

    I think it's time to pull the cord. Just take it away. You're doing way yoo much. Also drop them off about 1000 feet from their destination. Saves a few cents in gas. You owe it to yourself

    Eat a big fat bean burrito before you drive and make sure the windows stay closed.

    When talking to pax, refer to yourself in the third person.
