Another reason UBER is an awesome company (despite what all the Left-wing Bernie Sanders-loving commies keep saying).
I got picked up tonight by a driver who was a raging A-hole. He starts going in the wrong direction so I tried to tell him that and he starts arguing with me, telling me that he knows what he's doing, he's going to follow his GPS. I said we're going to MY HOUSE, so I think I know the best routes to get there, and he says he doesn't want me "backseat driving." So I just told him to stop right there and let me out. It was 4 minutes into the trip. I canceled it and called for a new driver (who was just fine). But I was still charged the minimum $4 for that ride.
When I got home, I sent an email to Uber customer service about the trip, and 9 minutes later I got a personal reply which included a refund. Boom.
THIS is why the Taxi companies are whining.
