Weekly Summary: Professionalism statement.. Did an experiment- Uber app may be spying on us.

There was a post a while back about the Professionalism Statement on the weekly summary.
A member here "observer" noted that the Uber app can see what other apps are running on your phone.

Last week I turned on the Lyft a little every day I drove.
Sure enough I received the Professionalism Statement again this week.
The only time I see it is when I turn on the Lyft app.

That is only an "n of 1", so this may not be the cause.
Anyone else notice that you get the little shirt a tie graphic and a warning not to promote other businesses when you have both Uber and Lyft apps running at the same time?

no lyft in this market (yet) and ive gotten the professionalism bullshit 3 or 4 times in the last couple months. it's automated, and they are prolly (rightly) assuming that everyone is also doing lyft, so they're trying to scare them out of talking about it.

Yes, I received the same notice on my summary last week and this week as well. I receive this notification with some regularity. I replied with an e-mail and received a response stating, "That message was sent in general and was received by all Uber Partners. I would like to ask you to disregard that part of the message" I personally don't have a problem receiving that message, as I never discuss any business related ideas, at all, with any of my passengers.

Looks like it is not related to Lyft...
It may be random. I have no other business, and do not discuss any other business.
I will continue to ignore it.

How is a general statement about anything going to help a specific problem?

I got that one this week too. 25 years in customer service as office temp, phone person, delivery guy and now rideshare.
The other general statements, cleanliness of car, is wrong also. How ever after the $2.40 fare and vomit in my car, at this moment, it is correct. (come on 500 cleaning fee!)
Got lucky. The weather tech floor mat caught most everything. The corner of the back seat was not spared the bile and red wine.
I'm learning the streets in Chicago, but my awareness has improved.

If the class people have to take is about gum and mints and water, I need a gum and mint expense account.

My claim was denied because I told them about the 20 bucks the guy tossed on my seat.

I have informed Uber that I am now protected under the "Whistleblower Act" and that I have 1 year state and 2 years federal to file a claim against them in court.
(1 copy of complaint in correct venue for me, 1 for the Judge, one for each defendant) Delivered by the sheriff
My lawyer is on top of it, but since it's a claim for as little as 1000.00 plus the medical exam and 2 week follow up and the filing and service fees, and the lost income I have suffered over the past 7 hours., I will be doing this myself as fearless as I did against Star #384 who was not up to speed during a routine traffic stop, and the City of Chicago for False arrest and County for False imprisonment. Which I won the second it was filed

You want to know who I am?

I have already taken 1 trip where the rider seat in a pool of vomit and as the 101% support implies, Uber agrees with my decision.

I have an email from uber from my very first rider complaint that says, Uber, "We stand by you 101%".

I would like to see them prove that the glass is more than 100% full even with the bead of liquid above the rim of the glass.

I got that "don't promote other businesses" thing a few weeks ago. No idea where that came from since I didn't have any other business at the time.

I get that warning every other week. Don't have the lyft app installed yet, dont have a lyft driver account and dont promote anything in the vehicle. Not even a charity. So, idk. GUber is so much bs it's impossible to tell the real from the fake.

It is possible many are waiting for "numb".
It is also possible autonomous vehicles are not necessary with the proper chemistry.

I do believe the vast variety of Uber drones would amaze the public, possibly even the Bison.
No two are alike.
