Okay, one of the most common questions I get as a driver is, “What do you do about vomit?” Well, you do a lot of things. Hopefully, you clean it.
Vomiting is something that is a reality if you drive at bar close, okay? There’s always gonna be someone who just went too hard and they can’t hold their liquor and they’re going to vomit. Now, here’s the deal. You can avoid it multiple ways.
One, as you’re driving up and you’re on phone with your passenger and that’s one recommendation. You text or you call your passenger ahead of time [and] you can kind of get a feel, are they crazy?
I mean, if people are holding them up and like pointing them towards you and they’re like…cancel that, bad boy. Take that hit on the cancellation rate and drive off.
So here’s the deal. If they throw up in your car you can take…you need to take pictures of it and then send it to Lyft or Uber. And they will accredit you up to $250, $250 big ones, and they will charge that passenger.
However, you don’t want that. Okay. You don’t want smelly vomit in your car or other people have peed or pooped in other people’s cars. I’ve never experienced any of those. Okay.
So I’m really grateful for that and I’m not looking forward to it even though that would be probably a fun, not fun, and interesting experience. Because think about this. If they vomit in your car you are now done for the night.
If it’s Saturday night you’re not going to find a detailer on Sunday. You’re done for another day.
They are effectively taking your income source out. Now, I know some passengers…drivers who drive bar close all the time and that’s like their thing and they have the whole kit on their back.
That’s something you can get. You know, they have like heavy duty pet cleaner and they’ll just buff it out real quick, and they’ll collect that money and then, bam, they make money from it.
Okay. Now, if you want to do that, hey, all power to you, but for most of us, avoid vomit. And so what some people do is they buy medical vomit bags and they have them in the back and they’ll hand them to them.
I had this trash bag that…it’s a trash can that’s waterproof, and I’ll hand it to them if they’re their kind of tipsy and they look like they’re gonna hurl.
So vomit is something that you may experience. I haven’t experienced it but it’s something important for you to know how to manage.
