Uber Uber

I don’t understand why some people who request an Uber pickup don’t even attempt to make sure the pin is where they want picked up. I understand it is easy to slap the pin in the wrong spot sometimes. I understand Apple really sucks with how GPS works with Uber. I understand people make mistakes.

That doesn’t mean in the several minutes typically following a pickup request, they can’t look down and say, oh, no, the pin is wrong. I had better text and send a correction. Or, you know, find time in the several minutes to bother yourself with walking 40 feet. It’s really not hard.

It reminds me of seeing people who have pushed their cart hundreds of feet all over a store, then when they get back to their car they certainly can’t be asked to walk it just thirty or forty more feet to put it in a cart collection location. That’s just too hard. 849 feet is my limit. That extra 40 feet would put me dangerously close to 900 at which time as it says in the bible I will burst into flames and cease to exist.

I had a fare the other day that literally wouldn’t cross the street to be picked up. There were two lanes, and if I were to stop in the lane they wanted me to stop in, the police would have ran up and gave me a ticket. But the client didn’t care. Not only that, but they said they would be fine waiting for me to drive the 8 minutes or so through awful congestion to get back around to “get closer.” which at best would mean one or two car lengths back, still across the street. Canceled that fare and drove away.

It almost makes the 4 girls who were in the car tonight who were so loud, spouting physical insults about multiple people and forcing me to endure dozens of kardashian (and other) stars being used as examples of who’s hips were good and who should be “thrown in the dumpster” for this or that reason… I just…. I can’t even. I can’t. No, it doesn’t almost make it better.

Lucky I need the money, or I would absolutely never do this stuff. It simply doesn’t pay remotely enough.
