If this is revealing personal info please let me know and I will gladly take it down.

Friday afternoon around 4PM, Sepulveda & Olympic, I receive the request below:
Note the name, rating & surge. What would you do?
Pickup the PAX and live to tell the story? Or blow him off and PRAY for another surge ping?

See what a name of entitlement will get you.

You could pick him up and judge for yourself.

Wait till you get Mohammed Ali, its true, 4.5 took him to lax from here. I could see why his rating. But the trip went well. Or Glenford, there are two of those.

I would roll up to him with the doors locked, lower the windows and ask the pax name. If he answers with anything, but I'm a dumb @$$. I'll canceled in front of him then take a picture of his expression. A good laugh will go a long way while ubering.

bullshit name = NO
3.9 rating = NO

and as others have mentioned 1.3 is not much of a surge.. it's not even the rate from a year ago...
Hey what is that funny yellow bar under your name? What is a moder aviator?

See what happens when you ditch us for a plush business seat to another state? You end up in the dark.
Curiosity usually gets the best of me. I want to know what's so bad about the PAX. My imagination starts to run wild. I'm expecting to see a monster or like on the other thread where the PAX is a "B". I'm usually disappointed except for the occasional PAX that's not ready to go when i get there.

1.3x is not surge. Still not even the base rate in Santa Barbara.

Decline due to poor rate per mile.
Ditto. For someone to be under a 4 and be at an odd decimal point unlike a 3.5, means this guy is a real asshole. He has done enough rides to really screw him. 1.3x? That is a pimple of a surge. I would be skipping that in about 5 seconds. My fingers would be working so fast to get that out of there. Then I would check the rider app to see what moron near me took him.

Why the hell do you log in at such a low surge? I think that's the real question that needs to be answered.
