My uber rating just went from a solid 5 to 4.86 all of a sudden. What's the world coming to?

smashingjj 02-28-2020 01:47 PM

you an Uber driver babez?

LaBelle 02-28-2020 02:03 PM

Not in this economy.

buzzard 02-28-2020 02:22 PM

Is Uber an accepted thing in your turf?

Last time I was in Bs.As., it was this weird situation where the drivers would make you sit up front and pretend to be generic vehicle passengers to avoid potentially violent attacks from territorial gangster cabbies.

Convenient as it was for alerting curbside passengers, the illuminated logo was really working against them in this situation.

It was really difficult to act like there's just this turquoise glow emanating from the lower half of your face.

At the very least the news of uber drivers being violently murdered stopped getting as much press attention as they did a few years ago.

I've entered a new level of Karenhood and made several online accounts to write negative reviews of a bad experience I had at a store today. Petty rage looks terrible on me, too.

someone do a james lipton "in hell" thread!

Just came across this verse in the SDA Bible commentary (lol) I am working on.

Proverbs 18:3

"When the wicked comes, contempt comes also."


lolololol so true

some useless girl who is part of my group project came up to me after our presentation today and said she would give a good review if i gave her one. this little girl was hardly in class, was late turning in her outline, didn't respond to emails, played (?) dumb, and made excuses up the wazoo. she mad 'cause i held her accountable and told her in class that her inability to open emails and be responsive is her problem as a student and no one else's--she had tried saying i was a bad communicator (i was the moderator of the group) and that's why she had to ask, "what are we doing?" more than once. however, no one else had that issue. notice the correlation, honey?!

anyway, i told her i am not exchanging a good review with her for the peer evaluation and that i planned on being honest. she angrily said, "okay, me too," and walked away. i said, "do your thing; just be honest" and the other two girls in my group exchanged glances with me indicating that broad has some nerve. you know i shared this with my professor and she said students who don't do their work often try to finagle good reviews at the end and she'd judge her review of me and call out anything egregiously wrong since she knows how hard i worked to get everything together.

You missed the part at the end where everyone stands up and applauds. 3/10, would not read again.

skin colour?

yo soy el mejor 03-05-2020 01:27 PM

well, there was applause after the presentation

i told my teacher what happened afterwards in private, though. but the other two girls in my group did tell me two weeks ago they were glad i called this girl out in class to let her know she would not be blaming us for her laziness.

beige-ish

she can probably get a good tan

yo soy el mejor 03-05-2020 01:31 PM

there was another beige-ish girl in my group but she was great, so i think it's something else that makes the other so awful. pero, it's over now and she'll move on to be some other group's problem.

no one did this. why the hell not? doesn't he count? doesn't he count??

wHATcOLOR 03-05-2020 02:20 PM

id do it myself, but i just can't bring myself to

ilikeplanets 03-05-2020 02:35 PM

Just reading the words "group project " makes my blood pressure rise.

yo soy el mejor 03-05-2020 05:07 PM

they drive me nuts every quarter. last quarter i called out a girl for doing the same thing of not responding to shit; at the last minute she expressed wanting to meet--either to make herself feel like she had made an effort or to feel like we were in the same position needing to cram in work at the last moment. when i saw what she wrote the day of our presentation, i told her it looked like she only worked on it last night and she said she worked very hard and i said, "you're either stupid or a liar." harsh, maybe? but true.

really hate when privileged dummies think they can coast on the work of others.

ilikeplanets 03-05-2020 05:20 PM

Was all this happening on the undergraduate level? I would have to hope that people getting their Master's and beyond take things seriously. I also hope there are no group projects past that point...

yo soy el mejor 03-05-2020 05:27 PM

yeah, i'm still a senior undergraduate so i really hope this changes when i go to graduate school. i either don't want to do any group projects ever or to know that others are just as dedicated to not letting group mates down. seems like a majority of students i've worked with have the motto of 'Cs get degrees' and shrug things off and their spelling is not always good (autocorrect can't be everywhere).

ilikeplanets 03-05-2020 05:45 PM

I was shocked as an English major (lol) to see how many of my peers had terrible spelling and grammar.

Sounds like someone wants me to be ashamed or embarrassed of going back to school at 29!
