Gave some guy 3 stars as he smelled like phish. Not sure if he works at a fish market, his girl smells like fish or maybe he has a vagina that smells like fish. Either or, Fishman is Dunn.

I tend to have deep ass talks with my Uber drivers on the BQE, when on my way home from LaGuardia. Last one gave me a lecture on why I should get married.

You ever dish out some quality advice/deep ass shit while Ubering?

Lately people have been asking me if Iím doing this full time. I havenít been asked advise, just been a good listener with people and their problems:

I wanna quit my job, boss is a dick
I need to get the fuck outta Miami
My bachelor party sucked
My friends are assholes
Miami drivers suck
My last Uber driver gave me an attitude because he wouldnít let me get McDís
Iíve got meetings all week and I just wanna blaze

Anything under 4.5 to me raises an eyebrow. I have yet to cancel a ride due to a low rating, however, I have cancelled rides as I was unable to get to a passenger. Just last night a passenger was at the port in Ft Laudy around 2AM, however, unable to get to him. Fences/gates were locked at two separate entrances so I cancelled. Sunday/Monday morning I cancelled on the same passenger twice as she requested from a club and I waited outside on Ocean Drive in South Beach. Traffic was insane and I couldnít stay waiting forever so it is what it is.

Is it okay to cancel it if the driver has gone to the wrong location?

I needed a hospital pick up last year. Never had problems as it is a main hospital - ten uber trips from there to home without an issue. Driver was parked 2 minutes away no where near dropped pin. I called and driver blamed me for inputting wrong location.

I wish I had cancelled as it set the journey off on the wrong foot. I showed him the screenshot of the map. I didn't know whether it was him or the app so was hoping to find out but he was offended by this.

A driver cannot be requested as of now UNLESS the driver/passenger exchange numbers for future encounters.

Please refer to the Poultry manual for further instructions.

There have been times when the dropped pin and the actual location of the passenger where a block or two apart. Sometimes itís the passenger or the app but the passenger isnít doing this on purpose. If there is little to no traffic involved itís no biggie, however, on a major street with traffic it can anger a driver. The last thing I wanna do it block the right lane on a major roadway, especially down here in Scarface Land.

The driver shouldnít have Ďblamedí you. Whenever I call a passenger I say something along the lines of, ďI donít see you at the pinned location, can you advise exactly where you areĒ? I never ever come across as a dick in this job or in life in general unless itís called for to act like a dick.

I received a 3 star rating today from a elderly woman who barely spoke English. She can choke on a dirty penis, however, didn’t drop my overall rating at a 4.96.

IMHO, it would be helpful if anyone would care to post their most recent drivers rating.

I usually always rate the driver a 5. I haven't had any experience bad enough to warrant a lower score. However I don't uber/lyft that often. I usually sit in the front especially on longer trips because I tend to get motion sickness in the back.

One time I tried getting an uber or lyft (dont remember which) at the Miami airport. What a fucking disaster that was. Had no reception outside so went inside to request on wifi. Then waited and waited in that gas fume infested oven forever. All the app told me was that it was a corolla or something, I don't even think this specific time it told me what color the car was. Needless to say there were about 1000 corollas in there and all the ones with uber/lyft signs seem to end up picking up other people. After like 30 min of this shit we gave up and got a cab.

Then Uber/Lyft wanted to charge me some kind of fee because I canceled the ride.

I only do airport drop offs but NEVER pickups. The reason is that for drivers like myself, you have to wait in a parking lot close to the terminal and wait for your turn (que). On average a driver would be #80-120 so just sitting there wasting time isn’t sufficient IMHO.

In your situation the driver never called you? Passengers I’ve heard usually win the cancelled ride fee as it gets credited.


Last night I had a interesting passenger. Got a request in Brickell through Lyft which was a female IDK maybe early/mid 20’s. I’ll be nice and say a 6.75/10 but mainly a 6. She was wasted af/lit/whatever and she had two friends help her get in my Civic. One of her friends was fine af and gave me her number to text her whenever I dropped off her friend as they were worried about her. I said no biggie, I’ll text. Chick passed out after a few minutes and had a hard time waking her up when I arrived at her apartment complex about 20 minutes away. I had to finger her to wake her up which she did (I kid, just called her name like 35 times). She gets out of the car, hugs and holds me as she stumbling and leans against her SUV saying she couldn’t get in. I’m like WTF you should go into your apartment. Then got another Lyft request and said I had to run but all of a sudden she wants to cuddle? More hugs and trying to
Kiss me but I backed off and told her that she needed to get to her apartment. Text her friend and showed her pics of her walking away and then I left. Friend kept texting/calling me all night saying that they couldn’t get a hold of her. I said hey, I’m just a driver, not a damn babysitter lol.

Nope. I think I did email uber after I saw they charged me, don't remember if they refunded me in the end or not. I actually prefer lyft and use that most of the time.

So trying to sleep and I get a text from the chick who’s fine af and tells me that the girl I took home is ok. I reply back saying alright good.

Just now she calls me and I’m like wtf?

She: I’m sorry didn’t mean to call you.
Me: No worries. Peace.
She: Peace.

Wtf
