Did you give the driver a chance to cancel? or contact them?
i canceled so they wouldnt waste gas on the trip , just a little experiment, and its probably why there is little to no surge these days. too many and they arent smart enough to ignore some pins. my guess betsy is a school teacher and will hopefully go away next month

On a related point. I live on the very outskirts of Atlanta (is a very underserved area) and my passenger app would normally report that no UberX available (Unless about 10 minutes away). Thee last few days I have seen UberX available with arrival times of up to 35 minutes.

Something has seriously changed here - no one should drive for 30+ minutes with the possibility of $5 min fare.

Geez! 34 minutes? I thought the cut off was 20. The furthest request I ever had was 18 (didn't take it) and when I log onto the rider app the furthest away I've ever seen was 20, but once that driver got beyond that range it said "No UberX available".

I kinda feel bad for Betsy though. Like you said she might be a school teacher doing it, or maybe some early Christmas money for the grandkids presents??

Reading rainbow dude is cool!

Camry solara is a 2 door vehicle. So now they accept coupes? :eek:
maybe auntie betsy lied that it had 4 doors, or its possible they mis-labeled it , they had my jetta as a hybrid till a few emails took it off(i didnt want hipsters mad that i mis represented my car)

I get on the average 5/7 requests a day in excess of 15 minutes. I just let them go and 1/2 re-ping 2/3 times thinking I. Ugh have just made a mistake. If Screwber & the PAX want me to run those crazy distances give me a guarantee of a $1.00 for every minute I drive to get their boney ass (NO CANCELLATION's,) with every minute of the drive guaranteed.

heck I'll run 20/30 minute pickups all day otherwise forget it I have had a 25 minute cancellation and that $5 sucks, wait $4.20 to me. UBER likes sharing the cancellation fee just not the 4.59 no fee drive expense. One minute is plenty of time to cancel for free, after that a buck a minute...

I'm a regular on the poor acceptance text...

Swim to me baby!!! Save me!! I'm drowning. :eek:

Btw.. Her rating was 4.3. Probably on a verge of deactivation. Afraid for her acceptance rate.

Dang! That's a low blow to a sister driver (broadcasting her photo, tags and ratings!!!) Come on now, this forum is readable by the world, at least crop out the personal data!
