Last comment on this thread..gotta move on now. I think it is so rich we have a rider here telling us as I/Cs what we are "required" to do. Sigh. And saying he'd throw a temper tantrum by complaining to a robot CSR. Too funny!! I'll explain it with this analogy.
The Outlaw Jesse James rides into town. Says, "Folks, there's a new Sheriff in town. Anyone want to ride with me?" Now, what kind of folks will this attract? Fellow outlaws to be sure, wannabe outlaws probably, and even a few with nothin better to do. Get it? There are no Rulz, GUber is making this sh^t up as they go along!
Yes, one could get deactivated for not hauling 4.
Yes, one get could deactivated for a low rating.
Yes, one could get deactivated for a violent encounter with a pax.
Yes, one could get deactivated for breaking wind in your vehicle and creating a "hostile work environment"
Yes, one could get deactivated because your local market GM gets PO'd and decides, "Off with their heads". "F*&k it, we got too many hoopdee 2004 Toyota Camry's in this Uberx fleet. Cxl half of their accounts. Pick em at random, I don't give a f*ck why, because we can."
GET IT? GUBer can deactivate anyone at any time for any reason they damn please. Period. Abide by your legal agreement as outlined in the PA. Do what makes sense for you and maximizing your potential profits. If you want to haul 4 obnoxious, over entitled, snarling drunks around for chump change, please be my guest. I. Will. Not.
From para 2.2 of the most recent "Partnership Agreement", dated 11/10/2014, excerpted:
(a) you shall be solely responsible for determining the most effective, efficient and safe manner to perform each instance of Transportation Services;
As to PFPC, when I get to your location, and observer your demeanor, I then assess that I can not "effectively, efficiently and safely perform this instance of the Transportation Service" I then exercise my right in the PA to cancel said instance, at no charge to you.
. You have NO legal entitlement to enter my vehicle, simply because you have submitted a "Request GUberX" transaction. We are not TAXI's.
This will end one day soon enough for all of us when:
1) One wrecks their car
2) GUber deactivates one for a random reason of their time or choosing
3) Your local authorities shut them down
4) Your wife realizes you are going broke doing this and shuts you down
4) GUber Investors realize they are going broke doing this and take them BK
Now please, have a chai latte and calm down. Another GUberx GNUber driving a GMC Yukon on X will be along in 30 seconds to give you a free ride. It's all going to work out for the best.
