Can't wait for someone to cross the cables, or worse yet. A very hot battery exploding in your face. I can't believe that Uber has all these sheep that will do just about anything for pennies. I just saw the NOT. But I wouldn't put it past Uber.Today Uber announced it will be providing vehicle jumping service. Riders who's personal vehicle battery is dead may have a Uber driver from any platform respond to jump they're dead battery. Depending upon the platform of the responding driver the rider will only have to pay the minimum charge. N O T ....
I get a ping on the select platform for a rider 10 minutes away. I accept get off the highway and I drive 7 minutes before I get a call saying the GPS is at the wrong address across the street. I tell him no problem he says he's the one outside with the hood up. Again I reply no problem then he says now for the $10 minimum charge I'm going to jump his vehicle right? There is silence around 10 seconds before I replied no that's not what wr do. I told him he's okay to cancel but a minimum charge will apply. His reply to me is why you didn't do anything. I hit end on my phone and waited another four minutes for him to finally cancel then contacted Uber support and advise them the situation.
Who in their right mind would have ever thought this type of call is acceptable. A hour later I'm still laughing about it.
It's true, that's why people are so hesitant to lend a jump these daysPlease tell me this is a joke....seriously this has to be a joke...lol!
Jumpstarting a car from jumper cables puts surges through the system that could potentially damage the electronics in modern vehicles. Stupid Uber
