Am amazed what people will call Uber for. Picked up a girl today maybe 20 years old, I ask her where she's going, she says across the street to McDonalds. I said no really where you going, she says again McDonalds across the street. There is a small empty lot between her apartment and the McDonalds. I drive her there and tell her I'll go through the drive through for her and then take her back home. Total time spend 5 minutes. .39 of a mile. WOW!!!

What? Wait. What is wrong with people? Did she at least tip? Offer to buy you food? Something to compensate for her dumb-assery?

None of the above. She seemed like a decent kid. I forgot to mention it was at least 100 degrees here today.

Well...she gets a pass then due to the heat. I would still just walk across the lot/street to get McDs, but it takes all kinds I guess. Uber on!!

I wouldn't have taken her through the drive through. I would have ended the ride and made her request another ride. Than you could have driven her to the other side of the street and had an additional $4.00 gross sale fare. That will teach her. Did she ask you if you would like something, or was she selfish ?

I picked up a 20ish male pax. He asked me to take him to the closest Jack in the Box. It was literally 1 block away... said he was staying with his brother's ex-wife (in a seedy motel) and they were taking shrooms and smoking weed. No judgment here.

Min fare + 50% PT + $5 tip + dinner for driving 0.1 miles. I'd take rides like this over 10 mile+ rides and dead mile returns.

She was far from fat. Didn't tip and offered no food. The only reason I went through drive thru for her was in the hopes of getting 5 star rating

Probably had a $25 first rider credit and wanted to try it out. Should've dropped her off, then offered to hand tight and ask her to ping you when she was done for the $4 trip home.
