Uber’s Kiss of Death

There I was, having an outstanding day delivery wise. Since logging on that day, I’d received several orders without receiving any advice within the app as to where the hotspots were. Uber even has a parking area in Green Bay that the app directs you to wait at if you’re having a slow day. But that wasn’t needed on this day. Not yet, anyhow. So, there I was, having a great day when I received what is equal to the Uber app’s kiss of death.

Kiss Of Death!

It seems innocent enough. A little message appears on the bottom of my phone screen, indicating that I’m in a busy area. I’ll be receiving orders very soon. Great Joy! It almost seemed too good to be true, and that’s because it was. See, I’ve noticed whenever Uber sends me this message, the orders stop coming. And that’s what happened. I got this message from the Uber app, basically telling me to hang out in a particular area. Then, all my orders vanished like a fart in the wind. Gone! It was as if a cloud sent from the dark side of the force was sent to hang over my car and stop me from receiving further orders.

Uber, why don’t you knock it off. Stop telling me when I’m in a busy area. I’m busier when you just stay out of it. First, you lowered the delivery fee’s on me. Next, you make me take pictures like a damn stalker when I leave an order at someone’s doorstep, and now this. It’s a double-edged sword because it creates an expectation that I’m gonna be busy. An expectation that UBER cannot live up to. I’d be better off if you never, ever ever ever, tell me to stay in a particular area. If you don’t put this message within the app, then I don’t have this expectation in my mind. STOP IT!!

As always, thank you for reading. Stay safe and have a great day!

Return of the man movie

There may be hope for my dad, after all. After the pathetic display that was my old man willingly watching The Notebook, without any kind of request from my mother, strictly relying on the recommendation of my sister, who we all know (it’s common knowledge within the family) only likes shitty chick flicks, I decided […]
