Guy jumps in the car, reeking of weed, middle of the ride asks if he can light a joint while we ride; politely I refuse for obvious reasons. Guy then proceeds to light what I assume was some type of pipe acting like it's not the same thing. Stopped the ride, kicked him out nd requested a cleaning fee cause now I have to stop working waiting for the smell to go away. Uber refused to pay cleaning fee. Who's wrong?

Newly joined this forum as I started driving for uber recently. Notice you guys use short forms like pax for passenger. Why is uber pool referred to as uberpoo? What is goober? Any other terms I should be aware of?

No cleaning fee , cigs smell just as bad if not worse , why would you wait for the smell to go away?, Windows down, spray good to go.

As a rider I wouldn't want to ride in a car that smells like the driver might be intoxicated, plus sometimes pax ride with kids. I ended up buying ozium nd wiping everything with wet wipes and kept working for a few hours. The ratings should reflect how bad the smell was and maybe I can use that to show uber that the cleaning fee was deserved

Sorry dude but I think your overreacting in a big way , I've had this happen numerous times , windows down and spray prob solved but I have leather seats maybe that's the difference .

Yea maybe I am. I'm just frustrated I had to spent an hour trying to get rid of it and feel like I should have been compensated for it. Oh well.

Last Friday had a spoiled kid eating chips on the back sit. It was a short trip and I didn't say anything, bc was too tired to argue. After the trip there were few chips crumbs and a greasy fingerprints on my leather sit. Took a picture and requested cleaning fee. Got $40 which is not bad. It took 2 minutes to wipe it out and continue working... Now thinking about allowing pax to eat in my car...:oops:
