    We all have the occasional annoying passenger. What are the top 10 most annoying things Uber riders do? I'll start with one, the passenger that questions your navigation device. What is with that? PAX "This must be a new way, I don't remember going this way last night" DRIVER Hey buddy, Google Maps says this is the right way, you have a problem with that, then take it up with Google otherwise tell me the way! :)

    An old and experienced cabbie once told me to always take the paxs directions as they will normally take you the long way.

    For a trip that will perhaps stretch to 10 minutes long at the absolute worst.

    Pax: " oh these are tv screens, can i watch tv?"
    Me: " no sorry its a dvd player only."
    Pax:" i want to watch a dvd, what do you have?"
    Me " sorry i dont have any dvds"
    Pax: " do you have any water or gum? I cant see any back here. How come the dvd player isnt working?
    Me. " oh the last guys must have taken the gum and all the water. Also the dvd player is broken."
    Pax." Spotify doesnt work in your car, can you set it up now?
    Me. " no the internet is broken as well."
    Pax."can we watch tv then"
    Me."no there is no tv."
    Me" oh by the way we are at your destination."
    Pax." Cool " as they stumble out the car.

    Having to break the news to a transgender prostitute that I don't want what she is selling and was upset I was not interested. She got angry when I told her I was happy in my relationship and was flattered but not interested. She continued yelling at me and asked what was wrong with me. I kept my cool and said nothing and here is your stop...Have a lovely day!!!

    My biggest pet peeve is waiting for the pax. When I arrive, I call. If there is no answer, I wait 6 minutes and call again. If no answer, I cancel and move on. If I do call and they answer, I wait 5 minutes. If they haven't arrived in 5 minutes, I call back. If they say anything to the affect that they are on the way, I start the trip. One time I sat 30 minutes before pax arrived. He apologized profusely. Didn't matter. I got paid. If after I've waited 5 minutes I call and there's no answer, I cancel and move on. Our time is limited. Get paid or move on.

    Use the ToughMan or RoughMan approach to PowerPlay on him:

    "Listen, I am driving using GoogleMaps. Oh yeah, you think you know more than Google? Who do you think you are? You think you are better than Larry Page and Sergey Brin?!"
