When did you stop being humanitarian?

    Yesterday had a ride that I should have cancelled. The whole situation and setup had disaster written all over.

    Anyway, I went against my instincts and decided to help. Bad decision followed by 20 minutes of intense driving.

    I got a cleaning fee, and the pax even gave me 5 star and tip.

    All and all I think I helped the Pax out, but I realize that this is not my job.

    Going forward is all about profit/loss. It took me 1 month and 200 rides to stop being humanitarian...

    What about you?

    Don't do it. If your bottom line is the bottom line. Your at the bottom.

    Just a bad day. Better is coming and you can make 'em good ones.

    Just a really drunk passenger. Nothing out of the ordinary I guess for people that drive the night shifts, but this was in the afternoon in the middle of nowhere where I was probably the only driver in a 10 mile radius. Again nothing extraordinary, but I may have saved him from injuries etc by keeping him off the street.

    an option besides a life changing choice. Some time off and a good nap are great "resets"

    LoL

    Problem happens when I try to be a humanitarian, like picking up low rated passengers all the time, they ding you with a low ratings . :)

    After about a week.

    I do plenty of nice things outside Uber.

    When I turn on the app it's about one thing and one thing only

    I don't feel bad about canceling at the last minute for any reason whatsoever. So I cost the pax an extra five minutes out of their life to request another car. Big deal.

    If only it had been 2016 not 2006, you could have requested an Uber and had them help, and we'd still have a humanitarian CableguynoeCableguynoe .

    Outside of Uber is the time for good deeds. When it comes to Uber, the saying "no good deed goes unpunished" comes to mind.
