I never understand people jumping for the wealthy for the price of the middle class...
Unless they are paying a premium they get the same open your own freaking door service from me.

If they have a cane. I figure if somebody has a cane you should open the door. And make a big scene about it. "Need help with that cane? Here, let me open the door for you. You have a cane, don't see many of those."

I used to regularly open the door. Then there was the Bellflower stabbing. (Uber driver got stabbed while holding a door open at a bar pick up.) I stopped after that for my safety. My ratings went from 4.92 to 4.86, but I didn't care.

As a Select driver, yes, I do open doors if I'm parked in a safe spot away from traffic, especially at the destination. Tired of having pax slam my doors as hard as they can.

If they seem elderly then sure. But wealthy on Uber x? Hell no.

I might do it if I was an SUV driver and people are paying for the special treatment.

When
- If carrying packages, backpack, etc.. In BOTH hands, and think they will scratch my vehicle. Same for when they get out. I like paint on my car.*
- For elderly / injured PAX as needed. Not often.
- Young lady got dumped by A-hole by text. Opened door and told her to have a wonderful day.
- Pregnant, very very pregnant lady. Door and offered my hand.

Otherwise, never.

* Why can't normal people think to turn backpack backwards so zippers/metal [email protected]$# doesn't scratch car?

Hell to the No!

I had a couple not too long ago, on X. Wait at the airport, 30 minutes or so. Pick them up, it's a short run, 4miles or so, To some fancy Palm Beach condo.

Doorman comes out, getshe the bags that I put on the side walk, husband turns his back on starts to walk away. I get back in and she's still in the back seat. I put it in drive, so she'd get the hint to hurry her ass up...

I get the A-HEM sound. I look at her, she looked at me then nodded towards the door. This princess expected me to get out and open the door. Again X...

I would've driven off with her in tow.

I told her for 1.00 a mile she doesn't get that kind of service and asked if she was coming with me to pick up the next person... she got out.

I got all 5s that week and the next. I was almost disappointed I didn't get a 1☆. Lol.

Was his account so I figured he got an ear full for not opening the door and then laid into him some more for what i dod beached or... and this is the scenario I choose to believe, She got out all pissed off beaching about me he knows how much of a pain in the ass she is and got som3 satisfaction in the way I treated her so he gave me 5...

I know it's a stretch, just let me have it..
