We are rated on a scale of 1 through 5 but judged on a strange scale of 10ths from a range of 4.5 to 5. They don’t match up well, they reflect much different degrees of sensitivity, and the first scale is skewed to favor those with a mind to punish as a result. It is unethical for the reason that it is meant to enable control by way of fear. This may be one of the more noble ways to fail out of Uber High, as a freshman with a 4.5.
We would be harder pressed to find an example of Uber policy or practice that is actually ethical. You’ve got a new set of tires, a trunk of bubble gum… All things considered, this is not the worst thing that could have happened, and it happened quickly before you beat the crap out of your car or worse.
