I miss David Letterman almost as much as the old decent rates UBER had in Orlando.
Without any further wait, here are my top ten reasons why I hate those scumbags:

#10. UBER floods the market with low rates to gain market share without caring about the well-being of their independent contractors.

#9. UBER is socialism on wheels. After all they hired David Plouffe, the man who helped Obama get to the White House. Now we drive wannabewhites to their houses for almost nothing.

#8. UBER does not allow for tips on their application neither encourages them. I feel being robbed after driving a couple of Brits to their hotel from the premium outlets and getting a simple thank you. They just spent $400 in shopping, $100 in dinner, etc, etc, and only $6 in their ride to the hotel.

#7. UBER is run by know-it-alls. These people who do not have last names never drove a car to transport people. Many of their bosses are young people with degrees from prestigious universities.

#6. Surge pricing is hardly ever surge pricing. I used to get into the red zones to find out the ride had a non-surge pricing. Now these buttholes do not show the red zones.

#5. UBER's propaganda has no limits. They send me an automated email telling me I only drove 4 hours so I missed on potential earnings of $900 dollars.

#4. UBER means U Better Exercise Regularly. Everything else is horseshit.

#3. Rates in Orlando are the lowest in the country. Seriously? People come to the #1 tourism destination in the world to spend lots of money and UBER charges the lowest rates in the country?

#2. Travis Kalanick. Do I need to say more? People under him are his clones who could care less about their clowns (drivers). Yes, UBER is a traveling circus on wheels.

#1. To fuel the mass hysteria, UBER is floating the idea an IPO is coming. Can you imaging driving a stock owner of this POS?

Please add as much as you like and let me know if you would like to be part of a class action lawsuit against these lying tyrants.

Pretty much sums up most people's complaints. The only reason I drive for Uber is because of its part time flexibility. I work another full time job that I have to work around.

I have not found another job that allows me to work when I want for this kind of money, which granted its not that good. Especially bad in Orlando market, but better where I normally drive on the coast.

I've considered prostitution, but I am probably only attractive enough to deal with old ladies. Or at least blind ones.

Once I'm out of the financial rut associated with 3 kids in college and one in high school, Uber will be a thing of the past for me.

OK Yuri. Let me say when Dave Letterman was on the air, you did not have an option after seeing a top 10 list and not understanding certain jokes.

Since you are between a rock and a hard place (driving for the scumbags MEARS family), let me explain #4:
"U better Exercise Regularly" to keep your sanity, get your endorphins going, etc...

as far as "wannabewhites" let me remind you after the automobile was invented, the first people that were chauffeured around were whites (upper social class).

Like Viera Uber says, UBER offers flexibility and I just drove 5 hours for $60 net. I have to deduct fuel, however I would not be frustrated if I had cleared $120 under the old rate system.

Since you went back to MEARS, you may know a lot of people left MEARS for UBER at first, then once UBER dropped rates, many drivers like yourself went back to MEARS and are happy after they realize it is not greener on the other side of the fence.

In summary, the flexibility is great, and the rates are ridiculous low to make a living out of it. It basically pays for my phone bill and maybe insurance.

For the love of God, why?

Considering Travis K's total disregard for (A) the law pretty much every place he does business, and (B) the financial well being of his company's drivers, why would you think he would have any respect or regard for his investors, or at least the small investors without lawyers?

This is a man without an ethical bone in his body. Best to let him crash and burn.

How on earth is uber socialistic? It is capitalism run rampant! I AM a socialist and I despise uber.

Maybe you should google socialism and capitalism. I think you have them confused.

Look up feudalism while you're at it. That's what they REALLY want.
