Uber Driver Cedric Burns Still Raging About “Privileged, Entitled Millennials” Not Tipping for UberEats; Drivers like Michael DeArmond still refusing to deliver to door

In November, we told you about Nashville Uber Driver Cedric Burns, who was going on rants and tirades about customers not tipping him for UberEats deliveries, despite Uber telling customers that tipping is not expected or required for this service. In the previous story we told you about drivers who were simply keeping the food of customers who would not tip them, because they were only delivering to the curbside and refusing to bring it to the customer’s door – which is also a directive of how to deliver, by…

Uber Driver James Henneberg is “bothered” by the “transgender thing”; Refuses to be Paired with Gay Couple in Future; Admits to Lying

Uber Driver James Henneberg isn’t having a good week, as we have received multiple tips from other drivers about him. Generally when this happens we assume it’s just someone with a grudge and we have to work harder to verify the source; however in this case we’ve received the same information from multiple sources each time. We are learning more about the character of James Henneberg, in reference to an incident that happened a few days before Christmas. Despite all we’ve learned in the past few days, Henneberg continues to…

Uber Driver James Henneberg Uses Military Service/Disability Status to Solicit Tips

After seeing our story about Uber driver James Henneberg’s distracted driving yesterday, an alert driver sent us a tip with the sign that Henneberg has in his car that he uses to solicit tips from passengers. While Uber drivers are allowed to accept/solicit tips, having a sign with this much explanation and, in our opinion, outright “begging” goes beyond the standard of what we’ve seen in any Uber or Lyft vehicle before. The sign explains (in way too may words) about the Drivers rating system (Tip: Passengers don’t want to…

Uber Drivers Say Some UberEATS Customers “Privileged” – Refuse To Deliver to Door, Keep Food for Themselves

Perhaps you’ve tried the latest on-demand food delivery service in Nashville – UberEATS! It’s advertised essentially as the Uber for your food – however the Uber drivers that are delivering your food are NOT pleased with being tasked to have your dinner and drinks as their passenger. When you order, you pay a booking fee of $4.99, and then you usually pay an additional surge fee if the area is busy, and of course that’s in addition to the cost of your food(Including any ‘togo’ surcharge or mandatory tip from…

[Preview] Upcoming Story on Alison Martel, Send us your tips!

A preview for Monday! We have to wonder how many people a certain Alison Martel (AKA Alison AMA-Musica) has conned into donating money for a family that she supposedly is state licensed to be a nurse for? We only ask because of a tip that shows she hold NO state license in nursing as purported, not even a CNA or tech, and she’s had 2 GoFundme’s shut down in the past 2 years in to this same ‘fundraising effort’. We’ll have more on Monday during my first article. We have…

Postmates Courier: “will publish national database of low/no tippers, and not deliver to them”

H/T to @karmaofthewild for this tip! This -has- to be a joke, right? No, in fact the Postmate is already running a beta-version of this program for the city he works in. Even more shocking – we learned this was already the current practice in the Denver Postmates Facebook Group! Seeing is usually believing, but after seeing this tip, we had to go to the source, to confirm his true intentions – and yes, Postmates courier Gabriel Martinez fully intents on launching a shared system where fellow Postmates can report…

East Nashville Trash Collectors: Modern Day Tip Mafia

They know where you live. They know what you discard. They know what you’ve bought lately, and if they were the trashmen of yesteryear they could make big cash money by providing this info to crooks on the side (“The Smith house on 12th St just got 3 x 55″ TVs – i picked up the boxes”). ¬†Once a year, they leave mysterious ‘cards’ with their names and personal addresses on them every holiday season – and expect you to leave or mail them a tip for doing their job,…

We’re working on a story about some $50 cheesecakes coming from what appears to be an unlicensed business in a possibly unregulated kitchen that may not be covered by the TN cottage laws, yet customers can’t seem to get enough, legal or not – perhaps you’ve seen posts in some various Easts Nashville groups – if you have any experience with this ‘bakery’ please Submit A Tip or email us: tips@eastnashville.news we’d love to hear your experiences, both good or bad, and if you’d continue to purchase from a bakery…
