Hello fellow drivers. Just feel like I need to vent here. Just had a ping, and the pax kept me waiting just about 5 mins. B/c XL pings are often far and few between, I rarely cancel immediately after 5 mins (and I only get $3.20 post commission), but this group of s***ty pax still shows up. They insist on shoving 7 in. I made the rule very clear that I can only take 6. They followed with the refrain, "but other drivers let us." That line makes my blood boil, and I almost let my anger get the better of me, and believe me, that would have gotten me arrested for the night. I then see them pass by in another minivan who acquiesced and took them.
By taking more than your car can fit, you're doing every driver a major disservice by rewarding bad behavior. If they hadn't been able to get a ride, maybe they would've learned their lesson. Moral of the story: NEVER EVER TAKE MORE THAN YOUR CAR CAN FIT!!! I understand the temptation, but it voids your insurance and screws over your fellow drivers. #endrant
