I was in the city at the sports bar and wasn't working tonight. Took a lyft back and one of the reasons why I do this occasionally is I like to get a feel on how drivers run their business. And the guy kept asking if we had any music preferences or temperature preferences. He actually asked about the temperature multiple times throughout the ride. Nice guy, but now I know how it looks from the rider's perspective. It looks slightly needy. There's nothing wrong with it but it does make it look like you're trying extra hard, either for ratings or a tip. Do any of you still do that? I noticed that I am more of a shut up and drive type driver now. I got that type of attitude recently after taking some taxi's in Chicago. Them taxi's, they just press the accelerator and go. When I first started, I used to ask if they wanted water or candy. Now I just shut up and drive. I do have a sign though. And honestly the reason I am experimenting with different signs is I have a fetish for flair and style, but it has to be the right balance. But I'm not going to ask passengers what they need anymore. After taking several of rides over the last few months in Chicago and San Francisco (taxi, lyft, uber), I have gotten a better feel on how different drivers run their business. I do get a kick out of the ones that offer you things as soon as you get in the car. It's really not that necessary. I have a 4.91 rating and my ratings don't vary that much no matter what I try or don't try.
