  1. Them idiots thought that it was actually surging
  2. Them idiots were hoping for surge ride
  3. Them think a 1.2-4 is life changing money. Uptown rides from airport you make a whopping $5-7 compared to the $4-6.
Unfortunately, Uber knows the psychology and data behind the drivers and dangling a carrot is all that is needed to get drivers to chase surge. They even put it south of ATT stadium and of course, idiots are driving around in a 6x surge that will never happen and end up getting requested back at ATT.

Ghost surge is designed to get drivers to chase it so they are close enough to get a ride from where the actual demand is. Delivery boosts are doing the same thing. Uber X boosts mean Uber is expecting a lot of demand. It's simple - logoff at airports and events and let surge Uber's algorithms work to your advantage.

I had a respectable $900 week on top of my real 40 hour week job by not driving like an idiot.

On the bright side, looks like all the smart ones have been replaced by idiots terrible at everything including math. Nice 4 door pickup trucks, crossover suvs, 20 mpg vehicle on X, it's only a matter of time until they have to stop.

Yeah, I am mind-boggled by the cars I see driving around. At least you saw a Super Crew.. I was at the Fairmount and saw someone picking up in a Supercab. Yeah, it's a "4 door" but who wants to be smooshed in that half-size back seat?? I am flabbergasted by the people who will throw down to stay at the Fairmount or Ritz and will have some shitty UberX come get them. At least spring for Select.
