Was in Seattle for business this last week and decided I would have some fun. Requested POOL from Seattle airport to which would be finally downtown. Of course like 5 drivers cancel on me (HOW DARE THEY) before a brave soul decides to take the trip. He gets my bags starts the trip and sees I am only going to a hotel about 3 miles away (This was me messing with him on purpose of course). I hear him practically fuming and can see the steam coming from his ears. We arrive at the hotel and he isn't budging of course. Was so nice to put my bags in at the airport so what gives??? I then told him that I was just messing with him. My actual destination was downtown Sheraton and I would request an uber X ride from him. He made a good chunk of change and I even tipped him some cash. I think he gave me 4 stars though because my rider rating is down to 4.94. Good story huh?

I don't know if it was good or bad story. You tipped him, that's good, but it's not right to mess with Uber drivers. We aren't your toys. :)

But.. good story should be, you ordered UberX at surge pricing of 2.0 x. Let the driver take you to a 3 miles radius hotel. After you get to the destination, you tell him" I am just messing with you, take me to downtown hotel instead" (of course tip him as well :) )

If its true, it probably was surging at SEATAC like crazy, so you pooled 3 miles out of the surge, then screwed your driver with base into the city. Done like only a scumbag driver could do.

Other drivers are usually the worst riders.. They know how to game the system, never tip even though they make a big production of how they are tipping in app, and love to give incesent directions.

I would have tossed your crappy driver bags out at the airport hotel, and 1* your A.

If real story bro, you are a ****** (french word for shower - up blog auto changed that word to *'s).

Only thing that I believe it is a fake story.
After the driver took him out of the airport by the pool. He completed the trip.
In order for you to call the same driver using UberX, you have to cancel other drivers.
I think it's pretty hard to do that. Also you might get a cancellation fee if you do it too much

I hope you tipped him at LEAST $20 since you probably saved more than that with your obnoxious pool ride. I wouldn't want you as a pax.

My last pax that was an Uber driver didn't tip - he was such an *******. That's bottom-of-the-barrel bullshit right there. A ****ing Uber driver that doesn't tip??!! How can we expect tips from regular pax if our ****ing "associates" don't tip??!! Ugh -

I hade couple times giving rides to Uber drivers. When they asked drive thru I immeadiately pulled over and tell them to get out after they said "I drive for Uber too, why dont you do drive thru". I replied to them "You have the guts to tell me you are an Uver driver".

Garbage people.
