It's my fault for not knowing this change was coming - or for not being paranoid enough to assume Lyft would try to screw me like Uber. I've only done 300 rides and so if Lyft nickel and dimes me this $8, I'll delete the app.
What really pisses me off is that I took this ride to Parsippany-Madison - and I'm still fa*kkin here. One of my alternator pulleys broke off it's mount on Rt 24 causing my drive belt to fall off; thereby losing power steering, coolant to the engine, heater controls and forcing me to limp to the nearest garage in 30° weather wearing only... I've sat all night here in the local Dunkin Donuts waiting for the shop to open at 8...smh
