drivers

Uber and Lyft drivers share things that they’d love to tell passengers but can’t

“Don’t make us wait the full five minutes that Uber gives you. The app gives you a minute-by-minute update as to when we will be there to pick you up, yet you can’t be ready when we get there?”

“I love drama. I want to know 100% of the information, even though I know none of these people. There is no better way to pass the time with a stranger than gossiping about people I’ll never see again.”

“Stop assuming we don’t need tips because Uber pays so well. It doesn’t.”

“Seriously, though, it takes a high level of professionalism sometimes to prevent letting a rude passenger’s attitude affect your next passenger’s experience, especially during a rapid transition where your next ride is booked before the current one ends.”

“It feels great to hear a sincere ‘thank you’ from the customer after the ride ends.”

“I love listening to strangers’ conversations. Many don’t seem to notice or care, and I feel like a fly on the wall.”

“Don’t have a smoke just before getting in my car. Some people are heavy smokers, and they stink up my car with cigarette smell. I wish they would spray cologne or perfume before getting inside the vehicle.”

“Stop being such an a–hole to your drivers. I would love to tell rude and obnoxious riders to get out of my car.”

“The ride can’t always be perfect. You try doing this for a living — i.e. keeping your car pristine, predicting traffic and road construction, and always being in a good mood.”

“It’s a service industry — tips are appreciated. If you feel like you’ve been given above-and-beyond great service, throw a couple bucks to the driver. It makes a huge difference.”

Kimi Raikkonen Honored as Ambassador for Sport

The Finnish government has never before appointed anyone as an Ambassador for Sport, but it did so at a Sport Gala, held in Helsinki on January 17, 2017. The recipient was none other than Kimi Raikkonen, who received the honor from Prime Minister Juha Sipila. 

Kimi’s presence at the gala had been kept secret right up until the last moment. “I’m not that used to making formal speeches,” said Raikkonen. “But I would like to wish all the best to the winners in every category, as well as those who missed out on the prizes this year. I would stress how important it has been in my case to have the support of my family and help from trustworthy colleagues and the people within the Ferrari Team, with whom I have worked for so many years now.
