Last night, I got a ping to a nice street lined up with historic houses. I stop and wait, two & half minutes later I call, and they hang up. Ok, this is gonna be a no show, so I wait aanother two and a half minutes, and then collect $5.
I drive a block or so away and wait for another ping. Two minutes later I get a ping to the same location, same name (T-sigh). I drive up, and wait and nobody’s coming. I lock my doors. I look at the house and it’s dark inside, but I notice a curtain moving in one of the windows. I call them again, and they hang up again. Ok.... hmm.
So I wait another two and a half minutes and after that press no show, again, and collect another $5. I drive away, now hoping this is not going to repeat.
To my relief I get someone else. I’m totally creeped out.
Accepting the same rider after taking a cancel fee can be dicey. If they are unhappy about the extra $5 they just paid "for no good reason" then you start off with a 1 star and zero tip. Not a good starting point, IMHO.
