Slate recently posted an opinion piece about the fact that Uber, the cab-dispatching smartphone app, has a secret rating of its passengers, based on cab driver ratings.
Passengers are rated on a scale of one to five.
Three More Detailed Scales We’d Like To See Uber Drivers Use To Rate Passengers
1. Teetotaler to passed-out-drunk-in-the-cab. Because nobody wants someone spilling hot tea in their cab.
2. Backseat driver to sitting on the cabbie’s lap, steering like a small child on their father’s lap. Self-explanatory.
3. Default 20 percent tipper to doesn’t-have-Uber-and-will-not-be-leaving-a-tip-and-paying-in-change-which-will-take-ten-minutes-to-count-out-after-the-meter-stops. Admittedly hard to program when the person does not have the app.
