    Low Pay, demanding riders, traffic , cops will harass you Ect Ect ..... Tickets for parking, speeding , red light cameras. Your vehicle will die fast. Riders puke , smoke , and trash your vehicle inside and out. Sometimes pay is good , but mostly hardly worth it. Dead end disaster would not even wish this on my worst enemy!

    well... traffic is out of ubers control. Smoking in your car is in YOUR control tell um no smoking or GTFO of your car. Pukers are hard to deal with, photos for your cleaning fee. accept NO TIP from a puker less than 200 dollars because Uber will consider what ever they give you as a cleaning fee. Other than that, I agree with you.

    Yea I am venting. I am just really frustrated with these stupid rates. Was making way more last fall. Anything and everything happens with this job. It's interesting but a fair pay day would be the right thing to do. I didn't expect the playing field to change midstream.

    Those are 100% on you. (I'm not discounting your overall frustration)

    I get it my man... just make sure you are in control of what goes on in your car.. don't let uber or the pax take control :)

    oh.. and apply at Dominos. it pays better and the pizzas don't *****, barf or piss in your car.. and their perfume smells tasty.

    When rates where higher, it could have been.

    Part-time supplemental income only! I hate to use this cliché, but "Don't quit your day job!"
