Seriously,

Had a few really bad pax experiences tonight. Had a guy who ordered Pool during rush hour out by Chinatown and said "My flight is in 45 minutes, you better get me there on time". He was sitting in the front seat and started eating a pizza. I just laughed at him for about 2 minutes and then said "You have 2 options. Call your ariline and tell them you're going to be late, or I can drop you off here and you can order an UberX". (Already had 2 other pool pax in the car. "Naw, **** it. I may as well take a nap". He then proceeds to recline the seat back onto the person behind him, who starts flipping out.

Had another one today where the guy tries to get in the car with a lit cigarette. I told him he needed to put it out. He called me a ****ing baby, and said "Look, even my kid can smoke" and proceeded to give his 6 year old kid the cigarette, and he started to smoke it. "That's nice sir, but neither of you are getting in the car with a cigarette, and I don't care if your kid smokes cigars, he's not getting in here without a car seat".

Then I had 2 "working girls" from LAX in from Vegas going to some party in the hills who flipped out because I told them they couldn't vape in the car. "It's not the cancer smoke! This is safe!" Told them stop or get out. Pax spent the next 5 minutes trying to get Siri to call "uber complaint department".

My last fare, the pax has the door open to get out but hasn't gotten out yet, and I start hearing strange creaking noise from the back. I look, and the guy is tugging on the iphone charge cable. "Man this thing is in here good. You mind if I take it? I need a new one".

REALLY???

Got home a few minutes ago, couldn't even stay on long enough for bar break. Not sure if I'll hit Platinum next week. Not sure if I care.

Father of the year. And, if you had gotten this on video, a source of more viral income than a couple of weeks worth of schlepping Uber fools.

Man, I'm so sorry you had that crap happen to you. I had a guy get in my car (a pool request) heading to Century City mall. Now, I'm pretty patient with people since I have a long history of customer service. Not to mention retail. So he gets in and says "Oh I'll give you directions where to go." I replied, "Okay", and proceeded to wait for him to continue talking. Waited...... waited. So I asked, "Which way am I going?". I hadn't move the car yet. "Oh.... (starts to tell left, right, blah blah). Which all he wanted to do was drop a letter in a mailbox. (facepalm) okay fine. Later as we get close to he destination, says to me "You'll will need to find an entry point.". I thought to myself... does he want me to park? So, I told him, "So you like to enter the parking lot?" He said, "No, no, no.... a spot so that I may walk into the mall.". I replied, "Oh okay yeah, no problem."

Bastard dinged my rating because of poor communication on his part. Now I'm at 4.90 rating.

If you didn't 1-star him already, change his rating to a 1. It'll make you feel better.

Bad Pax suck. Boo hiss to bad Pax. Hehe.

Dude, you got some patience. All of these jackholes I would have kicked them out. Or like the smoker not let them in at all.

I've had someone start up a cig as soon as I'm pulling up. I just rolled by then and canceled. No no, not in my car.

Screw these bad pax, problem is that there are drivers out there that don't care or don't have the balls to set them straight.
It's obvious they had poor parenting, so now we have to be the bad guy or gal.

Just kick them out before they have a chance to rate you, video of the 6year old smoking would of made a ton on you tube

I must be doing this wrong. I've done about 1500 rides and I've only given a 1 star once and I do t even remember what for, that's how memorable that was.

You and me mghtyred last night. I stayed out driving from 10am yesterday to 8am this morning because I got in an argument with my mom. It should have been splendid to work like 16 hours (I took long breaks) but no, I basically made beans.

You know your night is going to be bad when you are on a 1.8 guarantee and your first ride takes you to Anaheim. So I hung out there and inched my way to long beach.

You know you are going g to have a bad day when you dead mile from long beach and your next lax ride (after great sushi lunch) takes you right back to Santa ana!

You know it is bad when you pick up a snob at lax who refuses to speak a good day to you and you have to drive up a mountain to their house and they don't so much as give you a dollar. Then your next pax smells like urine. You drive her to long Beach and when she gets out (praise God) she has left you doo doo crumbs in the seat.

You are so happy your next pax is getting you closer to Los Angeles which she texts you apologetically thinking you are from long beach area. No prob! You go to pick her up and she is a cutie...then she pops open the door...and her mouth..."I'm glad you found me. I had to cancel the other one. Uber sent me a stupid Asian bi***"

I actually had random hiccups and my nose was burning by the time I dropped her off. I thought I was getting a nose bleed! She went on and on. After her I dead miled back to lax.

I got sent to pick up a stripper bc no one needed a pickup. I drove south bay for beans since guarantee ended by the time I got back. Then I get a ride to lax, drop off and immediately get a ping back in. I was like this is my LAST ride. I was falling asleep at the wheel. It was an 80 mile ride. FML
