- boogers on my headrest
- gum mashed into the carpet
- trash in the car
- pax touches radio controls or anything else in the car (get the F out of my console you drunkard, this end of the cable goes in your phone I'm not asking you to look for a place to plug it in)
- door slams.
- pax closing car door with the window (smudges I have to clean). Use the handle or at least the edge of the door.
- Lyft DF. Enough said.
- vaping
- trying to smuggle in open containers, and no it's not legal just because this is an Uber. The pax that tell you this don't really believe it either. If I can tell they aren't piss drunk and appear nice, I'll tell them "I'll wait, pound it." I've got a 50/50 pour-out to pound-it ratio...
- food in the car without asking, or hiding it because they risk a no. Everyone always leaves something. Always.
- "It's just water." Oh okay, I'm down with spills, bring that open cup with no lid.
- ballpoint pen on interior. Not accidental from a pocket, more than likely pure vandalism.
- smelly, sandy "service dog" at the beach.
- entitlement

Spending time driving to a pickup and finding an underage unaccompanied minor.
Yup, gave 2 different rides to High Schools this morning, one to CHS - he looked 18.
And two kids out to The Rock Church in Liberty Station. The girl was obviously under 18, but the guy I thought was older.
They might have been 18+ Seniors, I didn't ask.

Next was doubling back in Hotel Circle to the Doubletree (ironic) where I pull up to find a family of ... 5 waiting outside.
Um, Kudos for being outside and waiting. UberX, only 4 seats. And, two kids, one maybe 4 years old, the other maybe 2. No car seats.
I did NOT start that ride. I DID get them to cancel while I waited down the driveway at the curb.

And finally, sitting in the middle of the Heat map showing 2.x Surge and the ping comes in, in the same area, but is Base rates.

ALL THE SHORT RIDES when MY CAR being used as SCHOOL BUS.

When being used as grocery delivery service

When being used as part of pimping industry

When being used as van ride from one side of San Diego border to other side crossing the bridge

When pooling for one mile and being asked for aux cord!!!


When being asked to be uber pool XL while you only have prius

When getting rated bad for smelly 420 uber pool rides because one of pax was high

When you being asked to change destination on Lyft line or goto second n third one

When bi*ches can't hold it while driving them from one bar to a motel

When mama say every uber give my kid a ride except you being asking for car seat fool

When the very first question is where am I originally from? And get rated based on that

When pax think we make $$$$$$$$ money more than TRUMP does

When taking them to drive through and being promised to be very well tipped after ride ,and later u just find out 3.2$ only payment

When A call uber for B, and B has no cellphone to reach

When losing network at border and get cancelled for not be able to be reached and find out LATER the trip was ORIGINALLY to LA OR FURTHER

When all the short rides come together in a streak one after one and u get pissed ,turn off the app ,leave the area to find out later it surged 3x 4x 5x

When you drive for more than 4 years

When the car need heavy Mechanic $$$$$ visits and break down on Saturday

When pax takes me to casino more than one time a day and you feel super lucky,switch off the app,use debit card to find out second day that it was more expensive than going to Mechanic or take wife for shopping trip

When people ask me for change to tip me less than 5$....what the hell 5$ buy for you these days ????!!!!

When pax tip you bunch of dimes, nickels and nasty dirty single cents

What ELSE MORE????????????????

I hate it when I get a 45min+ long notification request then after picking up rider go to confirm drop off...then hear oh I’m sorry I put in the wrong address.

Story from last weekend..I was sitting in the middle of surge waiting for it too peak when I get a long notification trip on a 2.5x surge. I’m thinking ride of the year possibilities. I pickup group of 3 and start trip..couldn’t wait to see the destination. It said to Anaheim! I couldn’t be happier until I confirmed the address with the rider for him to tell me...sorry I accidentally put in my home address we are staying at hotel circle :(

Lol well at least there only $1.50

Well to answer your question..

I hate it when i get a Costco hot dog and bring it home to find out they gave me a polish dog. I still it eat but my experience isn't the same.

Do we all have egg on our face? Well you didn't leave us much to go off of. I was kind of wondering what it was that started this thread. I wish you had led with the Costco story. :p

- hate it when the receipt checker draws a smiley for kids and further holds up the line to get out of there. Those type of receipts have BPA in them and little kids shouldn't be handling them at all. Don't give my kids the receipt, or anything else, directly. I'll decide who hands what to my children, thank you.
- phone lines are busy and can't order pizza by phone. Only to wait in line for ordering, wait 45 minutes for your order, and have someone drop the ball on your order making you wait an additional 15 minutes on top of the 45.
PS, they give you a number if you order there but go by your name for phone orders (?). The guy gave me some attitude I didn't know this. Regardless, the pizza still didn't exist so they gave me the one from under the heat lamp. After waiting an hour. :mad:

You probably went to the wrong Costco for pizza. I've picked up many pizzas from Costco on Morena Blvd and never had a problem.

I hate it when a cheap db of a pax fabricates a story and Uber is required by law to lock you out of the system for 24 hours while they "investigate" even after I go to the pyramid to prove he is lying.

Cheers, Uber on!

... you pull up to a fancy hotel (Hotel del) and the passenger tips the bell boy in cash right in front of you. They helped you load your car (which you don't ask for), you've driven them, and unload their baggage. No tip for you.

PS, two riders, one extremely large suitcase, 2 medium suitcases, and one carry-on. Next time I am not going to accommodate. That's a cancel for XL, not a suitcase in the front seat. Shame on me, lesson learned.
