    At the end of some rides the pax says ‘thanks, drive safe’. Are they saying that cause they feel I didn’t drive safely or just to wish me a safe journey?

  2. As soon as a passenger leaves the car forget them, they’re all full of crappola
     
  3. Same reason they might say "Have a nice day" and not mean you weren't having a nice day.

    I've had a hundred pax tell me to "drive safe" and I never thought twice about.

    It’s better than saying “ I’ll tip you in the app”.

    Did you ever have friends or family visit and wish them a safe trip home? Same intent.

    You clearly scared them soooo badly that they prolly soiled their shorts! :-O

    lolz.... actually I have wondered about this myself but this generally occurs when the
    traffic is really nasty like at rush hour and after having a nice convo during the ride,
    I think they are just wishing me the best out in a dangerous world. I hope that's it, anyway.

    Speaking of.... I am super aware as I am driving the pax and I really focus and incorporate defensive driving into the mix. I really take pride in doing this gig well even if it does kinda suck A LOT. lol With that said, I have made some mistakes which I know caused fear in the pax and on those occasions I apologized but I did not give an excuse like I was tired or anything. Mistakes happen....oh well...but.. Did you die??? lol

  14. I tell passengers as soon as they get into the car that I’m a student driver.

    I don't wanna read too much into it either, but IIRC I had two occasions where millenials told me 'drive safe' as they left my car. Then afterwards took a rating hit. Could be coincidence, but still.

    When they tell me "Drive safe," I usually reply, "Ah, don't take all the fun out of it."
     
  17. What about if someone says, "don't be an *******"? Does that mean that they think the person was being ok?

    Safe journey! I always appreciate it! Especially on these snowy, icy days.

    That's the politically correct way to say, "What a loser."
