Fucking Uber

Recommended Posts

Dear Uber driver, what part of "Left Turn Only" didn't you understand at the intersection? Turning on your turn signal after you start merging in the intersection? A turn signal is like asking permission. My horn blasting is saying "Don't go in there!" Learn how to drive, and get a Commercial Drivers License, and Insurance!

 

I realize you're trying to pay off your student loan for your degree in Sociology, which lead you to the cashier job at the coffee place after Starbucks trashed your application. Was it really that hard to ask "Do you want whipped cream on that?" So what makes you think you can handle traffic, when you can't even tie your own shoes?

 

And that skunky weed you smoke is not "Medicinal"!

 

 

So, take your little "U" sticker in your window and shove it up your ass. Fuck Ü!

Can't say for Paris but here on the Cote it has been shit the past two days. Yesterday was 2.5 hrs to drive 30 miles to work. Today not much better. Not fun.... Uber is getting more popular here as the taxi drivers are thieves, up to €80 to drive 13 miles from the airport. Uber is about €20 but you take your chances with what type of car picks you up.

The general population has very little or no sympathy for the taxi drivers especially when they are blockading the airport so nobody gets in or out.

Relax, deep calming breath.

feel better?

 

Good. Now go buy a Chevy tahoe or suburban.

Those fuckwits know better than to barge on a tanker.

Well except the ones sailing Hobie 33s.. ;>)

 

And stop knocking their situation.

Not everyone at UCONN can play basketball or has a daddy who already owns a company.

Upon graduation, reality hits hard. At least they are trying to dig their way out of $200K of wasted time & money.

(Seen the kids of so many buddies get a piece of useless paper from UCONN, it was the only school I told my little one I was not picking up the check on when she was scoping colleges)

He had plenty of opportunity to merge earlier, go behind me, or turn left. I don't give a fuck if he's lost. His Uber app, or Siri should tell him that he's an asshole! I should have followed him to where he dropped off his passengers, so that I could have shamed him in front of them. I did give him the angry finger as I passed him. I hope his passengers gave him a low rating.

An App that tells people they're assholes would quite possibly be the most used App in history.

your story sounds like a few cab (real cabs) rides I took in DC last summer. Only had one good driver that knew where to go without being showed a google map ect. Figure the degree of separation between Uber and cab drivers is low.

Figure the degree of separation between Uber and cab drivers is low.

 

there is no seperation - as of last january 1/3 of SF Cab Drivers had left for uber or lyft. that's assuredly much higher now, and based on observation replicated in many other cities. the lazy dumbasses in the media still insist this is the 'sharing economy'

I still don't know how they get around licensing laws. I remember my dad doing work for a few clients with the PUC for limo companies. It took time to get the authority. When Uber started wasn't it mostly livery services between drop off and pick ups? At least they are licensed and insured. I wonder what all the discount auto insurances will do if something happens in a personal vehicle with personal not commercial insurance?

Uber has a $2mil policy on drivers...IF they have a rider in the car.

 

Now that Uber X BS will see many YouTube sob stories when they get their asses handed to them.

Uber's CEO sounds like a real douche everytime I see a clip of him opening his mouth, but he did strike gold with the skew that Uber is a tech company, not a trans company.

I've had good experience with Uber... use them frequently when in Miami. Multiple phone chargers, get offered bottled water, etc...

 

Hate f-ing cabs.

 

Try India.... no rearview mirrors, no turn signals... just horns. I got honked at, then almost run over, walking on the sidewalk.

Uber is fantastic. If I'm in Brooklyn and need to get home (midtown Manhattan) late on a Saturday night my options are the subway, which will take over an hour, a cab provided I can find one, or Uber for the same cost as the cab.

 

With Uber 99 times out of 100 the car will be much nicer than the cab and what's more important, it will actually be there. The taxi industry in NYC is a gigantic racket and I haven't yet met a person here at least who's used the service and then written it off.

Just had Über drop off a passenger next to me. He pulls out unit traffic while he's fucking with his phone on the dash, then pulls it out of the cradle and is talking into it, looking at it instead of the road.

Dear Über Driver, please learn to use your Fucking Turn Signal. It's not that hard. It's on the left side of the steering wheel. You push it down when you're going to turn left, and push it up when you're turning right. You're supposedly a Professional Driver, learn to act like it. Don't listen to the two fat bulldykes in the back seat. If they don't know where the Lesbian Bar door is, you can drive around the block, or let them walk a few yards. They need the exercise. And your not getting laid by either of them.

Had an Über driver parked outside my shop in the red "No Parking" zone today. He was fully reclined in the driver's seat, watching a video on his phone with both earbuds in. Is this how they're trained. Oh, there is no "Über Training". What a dumbshit! Hopefully he'll do the same on the railroad tracks.

Hey, Stüpid, don't stop in the middle of a traffic lane to let passengers out! I don't care if your flashers are on. Pull over. You don't let passengers exit into the traffic lane! You don't slow down the flow of traffic! Again, those fat ass passengers need to walk a few feet to get their feed.

Dear Copenhagen Uber driver:

 

You smell like rotten cabbage and old dinghy boots, and it is clear you have been chain smoking in your car since you test drove it on the lot. The 2-euro 'de-ionizing vanilla scent' that you spray in the car doesn't do anything positive; it just makes your car smell like an old stripper with a yeast infection and a smoking habit.

The vehicle had been serviced properly & I was glad to get out of the rain with my date. The dead hooker's yeast infection smell was coming off me.

 

I would've taken a cab...HAAAAAHAAAAHAAAAA sorry, who the hell LIKES cab rides?

so uber driver picks up woman with her grocery bags at the whole foods. not a huge deal. its got a "loading zone" of sorts that about half a lane wide...and pedestrian crosswalks..

 

so from the parked cars to the curb you've got about 30 feet wide.

 

its late PM rush lots of folks trying to get their shit and get home.

 

uber thinks that this is the perfect spot to do a 3 point turn to turn around rather than driving o the ends of the row of parked cars and heading down the next row.... I had half a mind to pull up and get so close that he could not complete the turn and force him to go his original direction. but I figured it would just end up pissing off even more people.

 

On campus, they just stop and discharge their passengers. no cares about traffic conditions or trying to get somewhere safer to let their passengers out...

 

uber/lyft drivers have become regular taxi drivers...the one thing they vowed they were not and that they were better than...

Ok - some drivers are shite...regardless of who they work (or don't work) for. Still say taxi drivers are far more rude and worse drivers than Uber... at least most Uber drivers own their own cars, so there is self-preservation involved. Plus they are continuously rated, if they receive less than 4 stars (out of 5), Uber drops them. When was the last time you were able to "rate" a yellow-cab driver ? I'll take Uber/Lyft any day over any other mode of "public" transportation.

Would love a citation on your assumption... Every Uber driver have personally talked to (20 plus) has never driven for the local cab union. In Bermuda, I will say you are correct (though it's not Uber, but some other ride-sharing service I can't recall the name of). The ride-sharing cars are the actual cabs.... and in the few times I called a cab in Bermuda, they wouldn't come unless I used their App.

Observationally I've seen Uber directly canvassing cab stands when they intended to launch in a new market.

To quote myself - per Uber internal documents their competition for drivers is Lyft and McDonalds. This ain't new kiddies.

Road comes to a T.  Left lane goes left, right lane goes right.  Pretty simple.  Quarter mile line up of cars in the right lane. Brake lights and turn signals.  Pretty fucking obvious that they’re turning right.  Fucking fat ass Über drives in the left lane to the front of the queue, and wants to turn right. She tries to wedge in, but the other drivers have nowhere to go and don’t want to let her in as they’ve been waiting a while in gridlock.  So the rest of us trying to turn left get stuck behind this fucking selfish, ignorant ÜberCunt as she’s adamant about turning right.  I hope that her blue waffle cunt lips fuse together,  so that she can’t bear any fucked up offspring.

 

Fück Über!
