View attachment 11649 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.
i feel bad for her but at the same time, so many think they can be drivers, first you have to actually be good at driving, next customer service has to be there and 3rd smarts of where and when to be and when to start driving- down to the car and mpg ect.

What about the others? It wasn't a racist issue here.
I didn't realize they were three different ones until you posted this. I just saw a post about her ratings, that's when I commented. Same applies to the others! BTW there was no race mentioned or considered in my post. Sister as in female version of fellow driver (brother/sister)

Did you give them time to call and ask you to cancel? Because if it was me that's what I would have done: accept and then call and tell you you were in the middle of the bay and you needed to cancel. Unless I was close in which case I'd park as close as I could and get the no show fee.

and its costing us all surges. they seem to accept any pin no matter how far or ridiculous it seems. smh





(i did cancel it right away as to not have the driver actually travel)
Love the edits. Lol. Made my night and I was in a shitty mood.

You'd be very surprised at what people can do with access to your VIN too.

I know that your passenger side was showing some long ETAs. (Maybe because cars travel more slowly in water?) But, is there any chance that the driver app gave them much shorter ETAs and they accepted based on that fact and hadn't had the time to notice that you were in the water?

I'm going to admit, this thread is funny and made me laugh. I do have a conscience though. There are many circumstances as to why the drivers accepted these pings and we'll never know the answer unless they comment on this or if you didn't cancel those rides before they could call. Being in Connecticut, we have so many new riders who cant figure out how to drop the pin correctly, and when you drop it in the water, it just lists the nearest street. It could be showing 34 minutes out on your end, but less than 20 on their app. Certain circumstances, I'll accept a ping that says 20 minutes out. Here's why. It will say 20 minutes out, but in reality its only 12 minutes away. We all know Uber doesn't educate new drivers either. I'm not advocating for those who don't research it first, but this "technology" company preys on those people. Show a little heart and stop messing with other people's money.

Gee Wiz, those drivers who accept pings without checking to see the location first are real stupid and costing us surges. I wish we could get rid of all of them all. Not only are they stupid, they look stupid, and drive stupid cars, and no one likes them. Good for you Emp 9, for punking them and wasting their time. That will show them.

You definitely shouldn't post driver's info or their pictures. Just because you don't mind if your info is being posted by others, doesn't mean all drivers feel the same way.
How do you guys even know those drivers would have actually attempted to pick him up? I accept all pings, but I skip the ridiculous ones. Ridiculous = anything more than 6 mins away, pin in the middle of a mall/big location, and SM Pier and Promenade.
