My top have to be I’ll tip you on the app and slamming my doors. Tipsy pax are my favorite passengers as long as there not angry ones.
Exactly. USE THE TEXT FEATURE! However, I do take the calls to amuse myself sometime OR get some info on where they are going.Yeah, PAXs do not seem to realize that 99.9% of the time, calling the driver just delays arrival and agitates us. Just let us concentrate on the gps and we'll be there soon!
I strongly agree....I dont PU drunks/druggies from the bar/club unless its $4.00 surge and up OR if its consecutive ride/streak (valued at the same)...... and even then if its often just not worth it...I accepted a $4.00 surge to PU from a college party, but had to cancel and bounce as soon as I saw 3 totally wasted students stumbling and bumbling toward my car, they were probably only going .5 mile back to the dorms, there are still too many ways that such a ride can go side ways during that 3 min trek.A lot of these complaints are a result of picking up from bars. Don't do that anymore for most of those reasons PLUS the fact that the surge X has gone away. Not picking up these clowns for an extra $2.50
My other issue is pax not ready DESPITE having requested 10-20 minutes before because of a stacked ping.
Nothing more annoying than pax saying "I am late for work" and "take this street" (backseat driving). First, it has nothing to do with the driver if you are running late. Second, the back seat driving with rudeness added is the worst. Why do the pax think that they know better than Waze, if there are traffic conditions factored in? And, its just obnoxious when you are a back seat driver. Think of it as you go into any coffee shop and then order a coffee. Then you tell the employee behind the counter, "you need to put the sugar and creme first and then pour the coffee in and then stir the coffee afterwards to ensure that the sugar dissolves and the creme becomes uniform in the coffee". Does the stupid pax think that the drivers are ret*rded and stupid? Its my car and because Uber pays the driver with upfront pricing, I will take the most efficient route. I don't need to be told byt the pax how to do my job. And, why do I take directions from someone who may not even have a driver's licence?
I've taken a harder stance on 5:00 cancellations lately. Used to be, if they were communicating, or en route & in sight, I'd wait past 5:00. Now, unless they are actively entering the vehicle before I finish cancelling, they'll be calling another Uber. They've shown their true colors and are not worth another second of my time.
I was in Huntington Beach, saw a girl I was about to pick up on the sidewalk smoking a cigarette...my window was down and she says "Heyyy!" I said "Heyyyyy!" And I kept on driving...I have zero tolerance for smoking right before getting in my car. Its so rude and disrespectful to stink up someones car and force me to breath in your toxic fumes that have stuck to your body and clothes.There really is only one thing that really bothers me, and that's when they try and enter my car with cokes, food, etc and they get miffed if I tell them the only thing that is allowed is bottled water.
I'd cancel that one and eject them.
I had two guys and one girl approach my car, smoking, and they put their cigarettes out and before they could get in, I drove off. I'm not even going to deal with people like that. Let them complain as I put in my complaint on them with uber.
