So I decided to go check out our Greenlight Hub at The Sprint store on Providence. Guy says it will become a weekly thing. Not a lot he can really help you with other than a problem with your account status or documents. Does have the new trade dress stickers if you need one.
He looked at my account and commented I seem to be doing good but my acceptance rate was low (56%). Told him if I would quit getting pings 15-20 minutes away it would be higher. I've dropped my acceptable time from 10 to 8 minutes. Acceptance rate went from 80% to 56% but my money has gotten better.
I complained about the usual things, fake surge near the airport, No info when you get stack pings and the low pay in Charlotte.

Oh and while I was there I was the only driver that spoke English as a first language.

Drivers ought to stage a protest of low rates and hold signs, invite the media, go topless - the whole 9 yards. The rates are a bit low but one of the main problems is Uber and Lyft take way too much of the fare for themselves. The next successful rideshare will be more driver friendly overall. And, yes, since I am an English speaker with a college education and nearly 2,000 rides, I deserve a raise!!!

In a country where the official language is STILL ENGLISH there is always a problem when the driver or passenger can not understand the other.
So in reality you meant to say that you were the only one who could understand English correctly. You see, it is non of your business weather a person has English as first, second or last language as long as that person understands and speaks a decent grade of English. On the other hand, for a person that has English as a first language you do not seem very bright. Also I would like to point out that on the Official Language issue you are also wrong. I am not sure that posting a link here will get you to click on it and read it (and understand it) so I better just copy it here.

"The most common language in the United States is known as American English. However, no official language exists at the federal level. There have been several proposals to make English the national language. Proposed constitutional amendments have been attached to immigration reform bills,[4][5] and one came from the Polish American Congress,[6] but none of these bills have become law with the amendment intact. The situation is quite varied at the state and territorial levels, with some states mirroring the federal policy of adopting no official language in a de jure capacity, others adopting English alone, others officially adopting English as well as local languages, and still others adopting a policy of de facto bilingualism".

"Official languages None at federal level (de facto English)
Main languages English 80%, Spanish 12.4%,other Indo-European 3.7%,Asian and Pacific island languages 3%, other languages 0.9% (2009 survey by the Census Bureau)
Indigenous languages Navajo, Central Alaskan Yup'ik, Dakota, Western Apache, Keres, Cherokee, Zuni, Ojibwe, O'odham,[1][2]
Others [show]
Main immigrant languages Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, French, Vietnamese, German, Chinese, Spanish
Sign languages American Sign Language (BASL), Hawai'i Sign Language, Keresan Sign Language, Navajo Family Sign, Plains Indian Sign Language,
Puerto Rican Sign Language, Samoan Sign Language".

These were all taken from Wikipedia. If I were you I would try to be more humble to immigrants and to people struggling to learn English and to adapt to a new place in their life. The vast majority know much more about your country than you do. As for me, English will never be my first language but that does not mean I can't communicate with others better than people like you.
