I picked up a ladie at the airport just now, she said she too a cab because she couldn't find the pickup for uber. She asked if I would drive uber, I said it's 6 of one half dozen of the other. Nobody is making money so I'll stick with cab for now. At least they pay health insurance and pay my gas, paid vacation. Point of the story, she told me she likes uber because she doesn't have to tip, she said why should I tip uber?. Lol while she gave me a 5 dollar tip.

That's what you took from that story? If you think making 1k a week is making money then your goal is lower than mine and I stand corrected

The whole point was that she didn't feel the need to tip uber but she tipped me for the same job. She even mentioned that you don't have to tip uber. She also said that uber does nothing for her. Where do you think she got those Ideas? IT'S THE BUSINESS MODEL

Rideshare isn't About Making Money.....Duh?

Right On ....2 Thousand Is about Making Money

Good story. The funny thing is if she wss competent enough to find the Uber area you wouldn't be telling this story right now. It turns out she was just dumb enough to pay double for her ride.
And here we go. The Medium.

Yup sounds about right. Drive cab but take uber home. Even cab drivers don't support fellow cab drivers.

Sorry business model at that !
My city,New Orleans,airport pick ups and drop offs are nearly the same rate for taxi & Uber. This was mandated by the city,which gets a nice $4.00 a ride cut.
It is the only ride we make money on !
Both Taxis and Uber are busy here.

Thanks to all you drivers who put a tip sign in your car. I think the word is getting out to pax, I'm getting many more consistent tips. Also, a tip to get the tips.....if the discussion turns to rating system be sure to tell your pax that most drivers will low rate them for not tipping among other unsavory practices.....not you though....you always give pax 5 stars, except for those two times. Good story time.

Awesome story dude, seems you need the tip more than me. Out of the $27, you made $10.80, plus $5. Plus, with dimwits like her, you can have her as a customer. Comes all the way to Vegas and all she could think of talking about is tipping Uber drivers.

For every time you hear "why should I tip Uber?", I hear "Why would I ever take a cab again?" 25 times.

The point of the story is that the woman is an idiot. How would tipping a driver whether he's in a cab, Uber car or a limo driver be like tipping the company itself?
