I had a short ride this morning...less than 2 miles. I drove 12 minutes out to pick up Pax. Drop off was at a hi end hotel. Net earnings $2.81...really? And no tip, for what ever reason I have not got any tips in over a month. My ratings is decent but maybe cause I did stop offering water and I don`t suck up to Pax. However I do smile (fake...lol) and I try to be a friendly and a pleasant driver. If it was not for the long rides that do come once in a while and rare surges, I would consider it barely surviving. Frustration is setting in...I see servers, bartenders and even Starbucks get more tips than us. Guys whats going on? Am I that stupid and how in the heck for those that drive full time make a decent living? Oh...and don`t get me started with that unfair rating system!
