It really doesn't matter how nice you are, how good you smell, how well you tip (if you even carry around cash), or even how seamlessly your transaction goes; at some point you've had an Uber driver that has absolutely hated your guts. Hey, you're probably not an Uber driver, you don't know their day, and they probably weren't wrong to hate you.
It may start with a tiny mistake as simple as not noticing that the pin dropped on the opposite end of the street, having to hit the "message" button, and telling someone who most likely only speaks partial English (or is reading your text while actively driving) to do something that is most likely inconvenient. Unless you're at the beginning of a romantic comedy, where you're both of perfect compatibility and one of you acts adorably clumsy, starting out with a f*ck up is a horrible way to start any kind of relationship. Thought it may be a temporary one, it's a relationship with money involved. Listen, you're not going to make friends with your Uber driver. You're going to be like airplane acquaintances, only they also have to drive the plane while listening to how you're new to the city and just sold your car because it's "actually cheaper" to take Uber (it is, by the way, if you do it right).
So try and avoid doing any of this to a fellow human being who is just trying to do their job, probably has at least a few other jobs, and is driving you somewhere while you fart around pretending to be Bruce Wayne in your head when really you're either just too drunk or don't have a car. Not owning a car doesn't make you Batman, so be nice to your Uber drivers.
