According to every advertisement that I’ve ever seen from Uber they always advertise that we get to work on our own schedule.
I screen my calls to find out passengers destinations because I have a busy work day,
If it’s it currently 11 o’clock and I have a doctors appointment at 1:30 I have allocated an amount of time that I can work.
If somebody wants to go to the San Francisco Airport I’m not going to have that amount of time, but I won’t know that unless I ask the passenger when they request where they’re going.
Uber may not like this and has told me not to log in unless I’m willing to complete all of the trips that I accept, but that’s an impossibility… it’s an impossibility because I don’t know where they’re going, and if Uber wants to keep that a secret then that’s a defects in their own app and hardly my fault.
This method of secrecy contradicts everything that they advertise.
Do they expect me to only login if I can work 5 hours, 6 hours, 7 hours 8 hours, 12 hours ? What if somebody wants to go to Los Angeles? That’s a 7 hour drive for me… who will pick up my kid from school if I except that trip as Uber request?
What about drivers that have back pain or other disabilities that prevent them from driving long distances do they not qualify to drive with Uber?
