No. I'm sure they were planning on paying for them though. If they REALLY wanted me to get them, they could have said "I'll give you $50 for a pack of cigarettes." I know that is an awful lot to ask, but if they really wanted them that badly, they'd have stepped up.Did this person offer compensation for the cigarettes?
This.$3 is the smallest number that moves me. I'll send thanks for $3 and up since that's the smallest value that genuinely puts a smile on my face. $2 is an okay acknowledgement, $1 is almost actually upsetting.
Some on this board have reported 30 sec. pings. Mine is literally 5 seconds. I timed it. Back in 2016 when I signed up (same locale) it was a 30 second ping.I just took a ping to see how long we get, I didn't think we got that much time but it was 11 seconds! With 5 seconds you pretty much only have time to look at the amount being paid and no other info.
I'm guessing drivers would think it is sneaky if they did it automatically.I agree that it's the right thing to send a thank you for the tips. But here's a question: why doesn't Uber just automatically send a thank you? it's not like we get to write in a personalized note - they just send a message if we click the button. why don't they just do it automatically for anyone that tips?
How would they know if driver clicked a button to post a thank you or if Uber did it auto? This technology company could program it to insert thank you note to pax at random times and they could program random thank you notes, right?I'm guessing drivers would think it is sneaky if they did it automatically.
