Only 1% drivers are actually using this forum, Not to mention among that 1% some still decide to ant so I wouldn't be surprised by anything.

Got in an Uber yesterday. The guy's been driving for the past 8 months and this is what I've heard from him:

"What's surge? I think Uber likes if I accept every trip and sometimes pays me extra as an appreciation."
Some ants can't be helped.

Guy that got me into Uber is the ant of all ants.

About a 55 year old black guy.
When he drives he wears a suit and hat.
Picture a pimp. That's him.

I question him about it he says he's old school.
Takes his suits to dry cleaners once a week.

His acceptance rate is 100%, 100% of the time.
I question him about it and he gets defensive.
Doesn't understand why you wouldn't accept every ride.
His reasoning is he likes driving.

I ask him about his weekend and he says he had a lot of down time at the airport.
I try to tell him that he's wasting his time there if it's a high queue, he says he gets to rest, so it's cool.

No matter what I say, he responds back like a good ant.

He works at same company as me, different department.
But he drives enough to be a full timer, making part timer money.

Says it's ok. It's extra money.

Pool? It's more money is what he told me the first time.
I think I did convince him that it's not and he hates express, but still takes them as they come.

Positivity can be a horrible thing sometimes.

People need to learn how to identify bullshit.

The real question is how did someone so naive get hired at the same company as you??

I wouldn't even be able to speak to him again after this because I would want to smack to stupid out of him.

Just an all around yes man/kiss ass that never expects more for his ass kissing efforts? I feel sorry for the guy.
It's a generational thing. My dad was a design engineer for SCE. He got no raises for 26 years. They used to call him in the middle of the night when they were having a problem with a building he floorplanned five to ten years earlier. He would recite specs from memory. He eventually took early retirement and then went to work somewhere else for three times what he had been making at SCE.
