Who do you think you are?
He's an Uber driver who owns his car, and/or pays all the expenses on it. Next question.
You are a cab driver .. pretty low on the social scale.
His position in the social hierarchy is irrelevant to and does not affect his ability to decide to take smelly pax or not.
You put your PERSONAL family car IN CAB SERVICE.
Yes, you have mastered the concept of Uber - drivers use their own personal vehicles to drive people around. Well done, you!
That puts you lower on the social scale than a cabbie ...
Again, this is of no relevance - social prestige of drivers has no effect on their prerogative to reject undesirables.
Maybe you haven't mastered the concept of Uber after all. Rideshare is not a job. It is a series of discrete contracts which each driver is free to accept or reject as he sees fit. You have been driving a while - I find it very
surprising that at this stage you would confuse this with a job.
You don't like the way people smell, go to work at the animal shelter.
No, you misunderstand. Have a re-read of the post - the OP is saying that he doesn't like the way smokers smell immediately post-cigarette. There is no evidence that he does not like the way that people in general smell, as you claim.
Embellishing what the other person said in order to have more to rail against is very common here for some reason, but it's pointless.
You can name-call all you want, but it doesn't change the fact that each driver has the free choice to accept or reject any pax he/she chooses. This is not a world where everyone has to do as you tell them. People who believe it is a world in which others have to do as they say are known as... Karens.
Anyway, regarding drivers exercising their rights to decide who they have in their cars, you're just going to have to like it or lump it, I'm afraid!
