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.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?
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 )
