Today we have a “who did it?” mystery for you that all drivers face: who dinged me? It’s a conundrum all regular drivers face after a while on the road. We did a great job navigating, made our passengers laugh, gave them space – everything was perfect. Yet our rating dropped from 4.81 to 4.79. Why? Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince lays out the clues, and you identify the culprit.
Saturday night. It’s 2 a.m. and I’m feeling good after six hours of driving nonstop. The rides have all gone well enough, which is often the most you can expect from an evening. Surely the ratings will be good… but they’re not.
My star average has plunged from 4.81 to 4.79. How could that be? There’s only one possible explanation: someone dinged me and gave me a 1 star rating.
Since a passenger can rate you months after the ride, it could have been almost anyone: tonight, a week ago, a month ago. I do a mental scan trying to figure out who might be the offending party.
Help me out here folks. This is a who-done-it and you’re the sleuth. We’ve got to figure out who dinged me? Here are the clues, the possible motives, and the suspects.
