Since today is Mother’s Day in Singapore, let me write about mums. No, I am not talking about the one female who brought you to this world with unconditional love. I meant Uber passengers in Singapore, whom I rather keep mum. Below is the definition of mum.
Same Old Story
It’s A Lonely World
Driving Uber can be lonely. Your constant companions are the radio, your Whatsapp chat messages and the occasional SMS texts from Uber/LCR telling you about their fantastic referral scheme.
Don’t get me wrong. As drivers, we love to engage with our passengers. But can you imagine, after spending long hours on the road, you are feeling tired and you have to listen and answer the same questions over and over again with a smile? If you don’t answer their mundane, they will perceive you as unfriendly and will give you a bad rating.
Keep It Lively
Drivers usually wait for passengers to initiate the conversation. They understand that passengers sometimes want some peace and quiet. If you, as passengers, want to start a conversation, please stop asking the same boring questions. If not, drivers will just give you standard template answers. 🙁
To all mothers out there, Happy Mothers’ Day. Drivers, if you see mothers alone with their kids, always give them a helping hand with their prams and bags. It is tough being a mother and I am sure they appreciate your gesture.
