  1. I’ve gotten an earful of political screeds from Uber drivers after saying I work for a healthcare company.

    Well actually only 1 Uber driver. I learned my lesson and no longer reveal anything about my line of work.

  2. The only Uber driver I never tipped was in LA – he spent my 30 minute ride praising T-Rump and trying to engage me in hate speech. I finally told him to shut up, if he had nothing nice to say, to say nothing.

  3. RE: Beth. I am guessing Beth was ranting hate about Trump and his supporters (like Beth’s insulting post above). Unfortunately, the Uber driver was a deplorable or an inferior (read an honest hard working ordinary American and not a UN loving bow-tie Chardonnay sipping globalist with a superiority complex), and he started arguing back. So Beth told him to shut up, did not give him a tip, and most likely gave him a “1” rating to punish him for his political views.
