6: Thoughtful Tipping
Tipping is a major perk to being an Uber driver, but the passengers don’t always remember to actually tip. Buzzfeed user jamesc420ce9ec1 told the story of a passenger who showed his gratitude differently. “And I drove for Lyft and picked up a guy getting off work. A liquor store was across the street from his job, so he asked me to stop there first. He goes in, then comes back, and I take him to his apartment. He reaches in his bag from the liquor store and hands me a bottle of Glenlivet.
“‘Sorry, but I forgot to tip you on the app. Here ya go!’ He became a regular after that, but he never tipped me with liquids ever again.” Needless to say, this was a great perk for a short ride if you fancy the finer things in life (off the job, of course).
