Sometimes, my contempt can no longer be contained:


So did Uber Support actually answer my questions?

Of course not. That would require them to actually be useful. Instead they sent me a link that looks like it should be a good link: https://www.uber.com/us/en/drive/pittsburgh/inspections/

But it was not a good link. It returns this (figure 2):

I hate these assholes with a passion that is beyond white hot fury.

They still haven’t answered the question. Now they promise to respond in email, as if that will somehow make them useful.
