Just a had this girl pay $10.66 XL ride to go 8/10 of a mile to buy some cigarettes. When we get to Gate she ask me to hold on while she goes in so I could take her back home. I was like sure. Wait about 15 minutes, and see her jump in some guys truck and take off. I'm sure I will get 1 star when she sees the fair, but what ever. I only drove a few miles to pick her up. All total I put 7 miles on my van, and 30-40 minutes of my time. Oh yea we had 1.8 times surge at the time.

Nut job. Why would she be upset about $10? How much are cigarettes these days? I took someone from the Four Points at the beach to Blind Rabbit at the beach -- you can see the two from each other. $15 min fare.

Agree with UberHammer, bad use of your time. If the wheels aren't turning you aren't making money.

Have my own funny story in the same theme though.

Saturday I drop this group late night in downtown Fernandina. As they get out some slightly drunk guy jumps in and asks if I can take him to blah, blah. I'm like, "I'm an Uber, not a cab. You have to request through the app." Guy was insistent and shows me all this cash he has. WTF, okay, $10. It would have been a $5 uber fair. Then he asks if we can stop for pizza. Okay, $15, which was probably short changing myself, since the only place open here at that hour is full pies, not slices. We get to the pizza place, he hands me $20 and starts to head inside. I hold up the 20 and say, I'm waiting for you, right? Yeah, yeah, be right back out. After knocking out 4 levels of Candy Crush I'm thinking, he can't be waiting this long for a pizza. I go inside looking for him. Place is closing down. Ask the girl at the counter if she's seen this guy. Oh, Glen, he called a cab and left like 10 minutes ago. Yeah, that guy has a few screws loose.
