I got a 25 quid tip on a 20 quid fare and why I feel like I never want to work nights again

3 mildly tipsy passengers had a 20 quid fare and tipped me 25 quid.

3 sets of drunk couples had viscous arguements with each other the whole journeys... The most hideous and vile arguments you can imagine.

A elderly passenger shouted to pull over immediately - I did and then he proceeded to urinate on my rear wheel.

I feel sick.

Ready for today/tonight...

Argh.

I did 15 years of it and got fed up, people getting rougher, looking for arguments, being sick regularly,shouting etc etc. I work days now, nice and easy, and peaceful lol !
What's it like on days with uber matey? How does it compare with nights money wise?

I had one of my best nights ever last night! I took £170 from 10pm-6am. I didn't have one drunk, all the passengers were chatty and jolly, passengers were easy to find, and the app behaved its self quite well!

Good job mate, how many bookings you had done and did they were any on surge? Very good figures, is this a normal night or a busy one?
Cheers

I had 17 jobs, 2 surges, and 3 cancelled! No, this was not a normal Sunday night, there was the Notting hill carnival and its a bank holiday the following day!. I forgot to add, I have a job pending as well because I forgot to start the trip!

17 trips - 203 quid which makes about 160 quid after Uber gets their cut?

oh, and the 25 quid tip... 185 quid after Uber's cut taken out...

to counter the original post

last night was one of the reasons i like nights.

dropped a young arab in deptford last night after running his mates all over town. did my usual and got him talking football, politics and philosophy. fare was £55.60 and he handed me 2x £50 notes. i handed one back and said don't worry about the £5.60. he handed it back again and said this is for you. as a general rule our arab friends don't tip.

sitting on edgware rd a working girl hands me her phone and says take me here. it was an address in colindale. seeing how few cabs were around there she can you wait, he's a very quick cummer so i'll only be 15 mins. 15 mins later she back in the cab and i said you're right he is a very quick cummer. she said they talked for 10 mins. it was a very enlightening conversation all the way back.

i got a nottinghill to orpington and bromley, nottinghill to archway and walthamstow, then tottenham hale to wilesden green.

last job was from shaftsebury ave. no cabs around and no punters but two very drunk blokes appeared at the bottom of gt windmill st. radisson park inn heathrow driver. pissed as farts they kept thanking me for stopping lol. they had a driver called Ali all day who they took into harrods with them and then the dorchester (is Ali on here?). at the radisson they insisted i came and had a beer with them at 4.30 am. as this was my last job i said i'd have a half (never done this before). several beers, 3 bottles of champagne, plus i think vodka later they paid for parking my cab and paid for my cab home. all this after a £20 tip. they were also trying to book me a stunning brazilian escort that they had entertained earlier in the day but managed to duck out of that.

never had a night like it
