So I don't drive Lyft very much and I just got my 1st two flags. Ouch. Especially cause most of my Lyft pax have been groups of international students in my small town for the Summer.

/Start sarcasm

The cleanliness one bothers me. Everyone is amazed at how clean my car is.

The nav one can go suck it. Take that up with Google. But I also have known every destination I'm headed to so I guess I'm bothered by that one as well.

And who couldn't be bothered to put an adjective in front of the personality comment. Honestly.

So how much do I owe y'all for this brief therapy session.

You pissed off one single passenger who was obviously ready to be a jerk.

And you got a positive comment and you're complaining about it??

Write back when you have 100 ratings in a week!

Sorry I forgot to type in the 'sarcasm font' so you'd know I was being facetious.

I edited it just for you.

You only got 2. Don't feel bad. One pax yesterday zapped me with all 4 in a retaliatory move after I 1 starred them. Same scenario happened a couple weeks ago as well. Glad to see I got flagged like that. It was reassurance they were aware what I rated them . And made me glad I my 1 star message got across to them and pissed them off.

I am anxiously awaiting my first Uber 1 star. Picked up pax, asked where they were going, knew the place but then pax started doubting themselves so I followed good ol trusty GPS because GPS wasn't matching their stated destination, a river outfitter with 4 others in the same vacinity. It matched 1 at a different address but had the address of the initially stated location.

Well, GPS decided I should drop them on 1 side of the river and they could swim to their destination which was where I initially thought they were going. Today GPS decided the address was in the middle of the frigging river.

For the TL/DR crowd

GPS sucked today.
Waiting for my 1st. 1 star.

Their reviews mean precisely f--k all.
I've done more than 1,350 rides. There aren't many things that are more random than Lyft ratings- maybe the baseball playoffs.
A couple of weeks ago I was at 4.93 (after being dangerously close to 4.60 just a couple of weeks prior to that time).
I was just amused that I was getting near a 5 point rating-- it was the first time when I cared about my rating in a LONG time.
Then I picked up two Indian ******s near the USC campus. They told me that it was going to take 1 1/2 hours to get to LAX. I told them that Waze is almost always correct and its 1 hour estimate was probably correct. They were overjoyed.... then 30 minutes into the drive they started complaining about the traffic. When I dropped them off one hour after I picked them up I did my usual polite smile with, "have a nice flight!" They just mumbled, "yeahcoolbye" or something as they exited the car. "Hmmmm.. bad vibes... Let me check my 'dashboard.' Yup. Now I'm down to 4.8." I just chuckled. It's all spoiled morons whose opinions reflect their own mood/mentality much more than your actual performance.

you sir are 100% correct, the ratings reflect the momentary mood of the pax, and only 30% of our pax at that. I had a speck...one speck of paint on a shirt and some obsessive compulsive clean freak dinged me bad on cleanliness. I have found almost all the negatives I get come from poo and line rides.

But honestly, we are not all 5 star drivers. I drive Lyft and I have taken 4 Lyft rides and 2 Uber's.

Only 3 of those rides were near 5 stars, more like 4, but I gave them all 5 stars and tips. The Lyft ones I rated, the uber where complementary from my mechanic. One Lyft I didn't tip because he started the ride early. Said he arrived and I was standing by the train station. He was not there and I watch Him turn the corner and head to me. I wish I 3 starred him.
