I am a FT Female Uber Driver for a year an a half. I GREATLY Appreciate when a Rider Tips Me!! UBER DRIVER don't Make the Money Riders think they do. Uber Drivers; Good Ones that Is are Really Taken Advantaged of By UBER THEMSELF as Well 90% of the Riders!! No one seems o Understand what it COST to Maintain our Vehicles'. As a Full Time Driver I put VERY HIGH MILAGE ON MY CAR any where from 500 to 800 Hundred MILES a WEEK!! Now with that comes Fuel , Oil Changes, Carwash a few Times a week!! Now on my own I provide Water, XM radio and Drive SRX Cadillac Luxury Fully Loaded. With that comes a Monthly Payment and My own Personal Insurance that is Required by Uber along with yearly Registration. And Uber DOES NOT HELP PAY FOR ANY OF IT!!! Yet they CONTINUE TO LOWER RATES on the DRIVERS END and RAISE THEM ON THERE END!! THEY DONT EVEN PAY FOR THE INSURANCE Which is CALLED YOUR SAFE RIDE FEE that COVERS RIDERS INCASE OF AN ACCIDENT WHILE A RIDER IS IN THE CAR!! Now There are about 4 BILLLION CARS ON THE ROAD all OVER THE WORLD Driving for UBER. And UBERS WORTH is 60 BILLION and CLIMBING, at the EXPENSE of the Drivers!! Don't get ME WRONG UBER IS A GREAT APP........ BUT HAS MANY FLAWS ALL AT THE RIVERS EXPENSE!! Let me EXPLAIN. #1. MOST RIDERS DONT USE THE APP CORRECTLY, Especially when they have BEEN DRINKING or NEW USERS/RIDERS this is Because of the APP SCREEN MOVES and THEY THINK that IT KNOW AUTOMATICALLY WHERE THEY ARE!! And Now Drivers GET SENT TO WRONG LOCATIONS and this COST DRIVER TIME AND FUEL and WE LOOSE GRANTEES IF ANY GIVEN BY UBER.. Then Drunk Riders Get Mad Cause THEY DONT THINK THERE WRONG; When I THE DRIVER Goes and Picks Them Up and TRIES To EXPLAIN what they did WRONG.. Which RESULTS in Bad RATINGS ON THE DRIVER. NOT TO MENSION RIDERS AREN'T AWARE That BAD RATINGS FOR A DRIVERS Can COSTS THEM THERE JOBS AS WELL!! #2 UBER DRIVER ARE REQUIRED TO OBEY THE LAW..And RIDERS seem to THINK ITS OK TO OVER CAPACITATE and HAVE OPEN ALCOHOL. So when YOU DENIED THEM MOST WILL GET MAD and AGAIN RESULTS IN BAD RATING FOR DRIVERS!! #3 Riders LEAVING BELONGINGS BEHIND and EXSPECT DRIVERS TO STOP WHAT THERE DOING which Could Also MEAN WORKING to BRING it to THEM!! Again THIS COSTS THE DRIVER TIME AND MONEY and If you REFUSE this to will RESULT IN BAD RATINGS FOR THE DRIVER. MOST RIDERS Will PROMISE YOU THE WORLD In ORDER to Get you Come RIGHT BACK or MEET THEM SOMEWHERE THE NEXT DAY and of COURSE 95% WILL NOT KEEP THERE WORD!! # 4...About 50% of RIDERS Feel it's OK FOR THEM TO TURN ON THE AIR OR CHANGE The STATIONS put THEIR FEET UP IN MY FACE ON THE CONSOLE TRYING TO HAVE SEX IN THE BACK SIT OR DOING DRUGS YOUR CAR WITHOUT ASKING or Even a Thought!! THIS IS INSANE?? WHAT DO THINK??? When I asked Them to Please Not Touch anything and That I will do it or PEASE DONT PUY YOUR FEET UP They Get OFFENED! Guess WHAT it RESULTS IN POOR or BAD RATINGS on THE DRIVER. #5 REMEMBER I AM A FEMALE DRIVER and I CANT BEGIN TO TELL YOU WHAT I GO TROUGH WITH 20% of MALE RIDERS even WHEN There's ANOTHER WOMAN IN THE CAR!! THE FILTHY THINGS THEY TALK ABOUT ASK ME / TO DO ..SOMETIMES SO WAY OUT OF LINE that I have to PULL OVER and Throw THEM OUT OR CALL POLICE BECAUSE THEY WONT GET OUT!! Then They TREATHEN ME About RATING ME call ME EVERY NAME IN THE BOOK ..SLAM DOORS ..SPIT on my CAR I even HAD ONE THROW A DRINK on MY CAR!! Now I Could GO ON, But I'm Sure You can UNDERSTAND My POINT! YET UBER PRETTY MUCH DOSE NOTHING All They DO is THANK ME for WRITING IN ABOUT these RIDERS Which TAKES TIME and AGAIN WE DONT GET PAID FOR IT!! SO WHEN I HAVE A RIDER THAT TIPS ME , WHICH IS ONLY ABOUT 3% of RIDERS I SURE DO THANK AND PRAISE THEM!! IT MAKE ME FEEL LIKE THEY CARE ABOUT ME / APPRECIATE ME!! ((( BECAUSE UBER SURE DONT!! ))))))) NOW If a RIDERS IS ON A SURGE of 3X and Going MORE THEN 10 MIES I DONT THINK A TIP IS NEEDED. Just THEM EXCEPTING A SURGE THAT HIGH IF NOT INTOXCITED Shows Me They APPRECIATE UBER DRIVERS!! And I have WENT OVER AND OVER THIS WITH UBER and NOTHING EVER GETS DONE!! And THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL RIDERS TIPS ARE INCLUDED and NOT NESSARY It SHOULD BE THRIDER CHOICE and There SHOULD BE A TIPPING AREA IN THE APP!! But Here's MY OPINION The REASON UBER DONT CARE IS FOR ONE THEY MADE THERE FORTUNE and HOPING BY 2020 to HAVE DRIVERLESS CARS ON THE ROAD and then THEY WONT NEED US. Which I CANT EVEN IMAGINE HAVING NO DRIVERS With All THAT GOES ON.......... So Debbie If YOU FEEL YOUR DRIVER DID A WONDERFUL JOB GETTING YOU TO YOUR DESTINATION , I'm SURE HE WOULD HAVE BE GREATFUL For YOUR GRATUITY. THANKS FOR USING UBER and ASKING! Sincerely Brenda......

THIS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE...IF YOU TRY!

YOU OWE THIS TO YOURSELF!

SITUATION: If you are unemployed, recently laid-off, under undue stress, notable pressures from managers and/or staff members alike. This can be a result of Conflict Management in the Workplace. Often, you can recount the steps on how you arrived in that predicament and with "casting a stone:" of blame, you can apply efforts of TURNING YOUR BROKEN STONES, INTO YOU STEPPING STONES!

MOVE TO ACTION: FOUR (4 ) UNDENIABLE TURNKEY STEPS

Step #1. Acknowledge where you are. (Acceptance is truth.) Step #2. Project where you want to be. (See yourself being there.) Step #3. Experience the new moment of truth. (How does it feel?) Step #4. Start "walking by faith, not by sight." (Realize your "steps are ordered," so step, step, step.)

Follow-me, learn and achieve. Then, let everything else fall-in-place!

READ THIS ARTICLE WITHOUT HESITATION!

Imagine, sitting down and enjoying a first-class meal. Everything is well prepared, cooked, perhaps well-done or medium-rare. Ummm, the savor of the wine, the poultry and vegetable, yes, everything is in place. Right? What really took place? From the illustration below, perhaps three or four persons working in unison to prepare this meal and they did it from the inside/out. Now, their enjoying the fruits and feast of their labor and living their best life now!

Likewise, to find the job you really want, requires that you are "working from the inside/out" to achieve the same estimate goal.

FOUR (4) UNDENIABLE TIPS, TURNING THINGS AROUND:

TIP #1. FAITH: Act on what you believe, versus what you see. TIP #2. CONSISTENCY: Stay true to your works and efforts. TIP #3. DILIGENCE: Do what you're suppose to do, even when you don't feel like it. TIP #4. ATTITUDE: Demonstrate an "attitude of gratitude" because it's on the way.

Don't simply follow-me, rather, learn this principle and turn your life inside/OUT!

THIS IS A MUST READ!

2019 will be a tremendous year for growth, development and much success. Do you plan on being a part of it?

#1. You MUST be alert for new opportunities. #2. You MUST minimize distractions in your life #3. You MUST put a bottle cap on the negative talk from others. #4. You MUST take baby steps in the right direction.

Now, if opportunity drags his/her feet in showing you door of opportunities. Then, become like the carpenter below in the illustration below. Start Building Your Own Door Of Opportunity and walk through it.

A MUST READ WITHOUT HESITATION! (It's Truly Necessary)

The caterpillar knows that he must enter into the cocoon of life, in order to transform his life and come out as a beautiful butterfly.

Perhaps he/she knows that inside the cocoon is where he/she does her best personal development work such as training, thinking and studying before exiting into the new world to do wonderful things. Are you that butterfly? Yes, you are, because 2019 is waiting YOU!

Like the butterfly in the illustration below he's/she's holding on to the cocoon until his/her work is done. Cultivate these four undeniable factors in your heart.

#1. As a butterfly, the environment becomes your new world. #2. If you keep holding on to the cocoon, it can become your prison in life. #3. You can spread your wings and fly that zig-zag pattern to live your dreams. #4. If you choose to hold-on to your cocoon in 2019, let it remind you that old things have passed. Now the best things in life have yet to come.

May you try, fly for the greater "Y" which is your FAMILY in 2019.

I Believe You Can...!
