An Uber Driver is someone who loves to complain about his riders, how the uber driver app functions and obviously their favorite uber customer service ( which is on point sometimes ). So this post is dedicated to all the uber driver complaints. Let the rants begin, starting with me.
I enjoy driving. I really do. I drive around in my car, picking people up and take them from point A to point B. For the most part, the pax are always nice and I’ve had some great conversations with people. I don’t pick and choose pick-ups either. I’ll pick up anyone. I don’t care. I also think the compensation for long distance pick-ups has been fair. That being said, I had one today that really pissed me off. It was 8 miles out in the country. Listed as a 21 minute pick-up. Well, I clearly drove to fast. Not even thinking about it. It was a straight shot, no traffic. I made the 8 miles in 11 minutes and 53 seconds. I know this because I called uber about the .35 cent long distance pick fee that I received. Uber informed me that the fee doesn’t apply until after 11 minutes. He also said that it’s based on time and distance, but strangely had no distance info about the 8 miles. Lesson learned, never drive over the speed limit but as I told the uber rep., that .35 cents is an insult to the rideshare partner. Sorry for the long post, but I had to just vent to those that can understand.
