    The tip thing is frustrating. Uber has created this mindset that tips are included in the fare. But what kills me are the $1M houses I pull up to and the people are nice and pleasant but during the conversation they will brag about how much they tip their taxi drivers and then at the end of the trip, they hop out with a big THANK YOU. I don't expect tips, but it's always amazing to me, the people that try to tip me are the ones that can least afford it. I have refused tips from many people and I always try to be gracious and explain to them that they work way too hard for their money to be tipping me when this is a part-time job for me and I have a stable job outside uber. The last thing I want to do is offend them but some of these folks are working two jobs. As a society we have gone tip crazy anyway. I go into a convenience store and there is a tip jar by the cash register. So scanning my items qualifies you for a tip? Seriously! The only peeps that should be tipped if you ask me are the servers who have almost a $0 hourly rate and the only way they make a decent wage is through their tips.

    I find if it's an older woman like over 50 you tell them about Uber or talk to them about it or ask them if they use it a lot and ask them what other drivers say and let them know you are not making any money and a lot of times they will tip. I don't do it for that, I like to talk to people, but a lot of times if they know it's a slow area and Uber is a payday loan scam against your car value they will tip.

    We don't even get airport runs here but I hear that pax don't even tip when they are helped with luggage and that is really bad. The worst is when you make a stop and they don't tip which is why I don't do stops.

    Yes, but Uber does not pay any income. They pay only revenue when I write off the miles I drive and empty miles I come out making less than zero dollars an hour.

    Maybe with the new pay cuts (upfront pricing) people will start tipping.

    They tip their hairdressers who are independent contractors and small business owners just like Uber drivers.

    I work in SF. I havent seen a tip in a long time. I get 2 people a week who ask me to do something, stop somewhere, wait for them, etc. They say they'll tip if I do what they ask and they never do.
