Ok just got back from vacation where I took several Ubers each day. It’s because YOUR A TERRIBLE UBER DRIVER.
Side note: Most of my drivers were great or even just fine and I was happy to give them 5 stars and a tip. This is just about the few bad ones…
*First, two topics to avoid in most settings religion and politics, especially if you’re in an tourist area that brings in people from all over the country/world. So don’t have on religious or political talk radio with Pax in the car and be surprised you get low ratings.
*Move your seat up. I had one driver with his seat so far back I literally couldn’t gt my foot to fit sideways. He finally moved up just enough so I could squeeze in. it was a very uncomfortable ride for me.
- It was all about the driver. One car had all these little signs taped everywhere "don’t slam the door, don’t leave trash, etc… with one big sign that said tips appreciated. If your going to ask the pax to go above and beyond and follow all your rules, then it is fair for the pax to expect amenities, if she expects a tip. (Update) To be clear, I am only saying she needed to go above and beyond a clean car and safe ride because she is asking the pax to go above and beyond.
*Driving hard, fast starts and harsh stops, get real annoying really quickly.
Now before you ask I didn’t offer and constructive criticism to the drivers (trust me I wanted to) but my wife asked me not to since we were on vacation and that would stress her out.
