I helped a friend sign up for Uber today and he took his first ride so I told him to throw the driver a couple of bucks tip. I talked to him after the ride and he said the driver said that he was not supposed to take tips. Are you f*cking kidding me!!! Does Uber still tell its new drivers not to take tips? If you have followed the news Uber lost the $100 million dollar law suit in part because it was claiming tip was included. In my eyes it is plain and simple, if we do not get tips or surge pricing we are basically breaking even. Check my previous posts about informing riders that the tip is not included because my tips have doubled since I put signage. Good luck out there and please TAKE TIPS!!!!!

I never turn down a $$, Im also not new. I have noticed everytime i go online I am getting tips more often. This past weekend I recieved 130$ in tips alone which was nice.
I dont push tipping nor do I care either way, it is appreciated though.

Up 30$ in tips just for 3hrs online that I had available today.

Picked up a couple at a local bar this past weekend. I knew them and I met them at the patio. They were working on getting some cash together to be able to tip me. Into the conversation pops some jackwad spewing the following: "Hey! You shouldn't tip...it's against Uber's rules."

Sweet cream Jesus. I told him to STFU so he could allow me to accurately explain the concept of gratuity.
