Back when Mytaxi was Failo one of the office staff used to ring some of us and refer to our moaning on here and threaten to remove us from the app for breaking the terms and conditions.He left in the end.What better way to feel the mood of your drivers than log in here.The ambassadors aren't gonna say anything negative down in Mount street out of fear of their earnings being curtailed.They're the hungry bastards after all.

You have to remember all it takes is 20% of drivers to stop using the app before the thing becomes paralysed.The remaining 80% will be driven mental with multiple job offers and will end up turning it off or rarely using it.It's only a bit software at the end of the day.

My missus has to log into boards.ie every few days to see if anyone is moaning online about the company she works in.

Many of the bigger companies have staff employed to monitor social media to maintain/defend their good reputation against moany bastards like us..

Post by: Shallowhal on November 08, 2019, 11:16:08 AM
I don't think we're moany bastards,we're just stating facts as we see them from an individual pov....if the few drivers on here happen to have similar experiences then it's probably a given that there are plenty of drivers not registered on this forum who are having similar experiences with the dominant taxi app....maybe reps of that dominat taxi app who might be logged in here might take note or.....just couldn't give a bollox!!

They have taken notice in the past. In fact they went from threatening to sack and sue me to inviting me to meet with management a few years back. PUC was reinstated shortly after said meeting.

Nha.. it wasn't for owning/running the site, Hal. It was for something I posted, probably on Roy's at that time... can't remember precisely what they took issue with but it was Dermot making the threats... all hot air, he didn't even sack me in the end despite my only response being to concede that it was his prerogative. I didn't alter any posts or refrain from repeating them, as I do.... in fact, I posted a full account of the phone call.

If mytaxi is listenin.....Last nite I got a meaty job and accepted and then I got it an then It went gfukin blank and the ambassadors cnut in front stopper his car obviously he was given it....
Why ???? A few stickers on his car ??.?.
Yiz have a fukin monopoly on the app business ye silly cnuts .....why alienate drivers like meself with beautiful new  technologically advanced vehicles valeted every day and a driver that is great crack( but doesn't take any shite) showers every day and doesn't rob or fiddle wit customers wer  bits  and knows all the back alleys shortcuts and is a hit wit the ladies.....why ? Wat sort of business school did you go to? At wat  point in yur silly life did common senses fly out the fukin windy ?
I'm in bad fukin mood now .....
Wit yur givin my work to yur licky lacky arse lickers you become the fukin enemy...
Why dont you bring in fairness of work distribution and get all drivers on yur side ?
Stop unfair competition....
You've alienated customers from the start whit an app that was overengineered and stopped working like hails simple but user friendly simplicity....yur alienated drivers wit yur app and yur unfairness.....
The problem wit mytaxi is too many chiefs      fuking the whole thing up..........
Lot of people have no loyalty to ya and are itching for someone else to come in and bury ya....

I've known the man since the early Hailo days and have always found him to very gentlemanly and professional.

Taxi drivers do tend to act the maggot quite a bit and every base owner or app owner has to crack the whip now and again or else acting the maggot would become the norm.

Have you ever had a radio DM?
Title: Re: Spy's Out there
Post by: dalymount on November 12, 2019, 04:12:50 PM
No never had a radio. I believe being self employed means exactly that. Not being told by a 3rd party what to wear, how much to charge, being treated like an employee, when the drivers are actually the employer. Think about this. You are a SELF EMPLOYED business man or taxi driver in this case. Now as such , you decide to employ the services of a  dispatcher to provide work to you, but you are the man who owns the business right ? Now suddenly the dispatcher you have engaged to provide work to you, (and that is his only function)  starts laying down rules for YOU, instead of YOU making the rules for HIM, can you not see anything wrong with that. ???

DM, would it not be like say a self-employed Builder who bids for a job and gets the work.
The person he is building for lays down the Law(way he wants building done/cleanliness/ etc), is this not similar ?

Post by: Shallowhal on November 12, 2019, 04:23:36 PM
I think we've talked about this before...unfortunately the day when people left their house and stood in the pissins of rain hoping an empty taxi would pass are long gone,technology(the phone) led to some taxi drivers seeing a niche in the market where there was a centralised booking...a taxi company.....now with expanding technology we have the interweb and smartphones and people ordering taxis don't even need to go to their neighbours(and leave 20p) for the use of their phone to ring a joe...it's all tap tap now,taxis even accept credit cards now...well most do anyway.
Title: Re: Spy's Out there
Post by: dalymount on November 12, 2019, 04:40:04 PM
STC it's not at all like the example you describe of the builder. In this case the taxi driver already has an established business up, and running. In this case he decides to engage the services of a 3rd party ( completely unnessesarly in my view) but instead of the taxi driver conducting his business in a professional manner, he allows this 3rd party to manipulate him , and direct his business for him therefore demoting him to the status of an employee withour employee status, or benefits

Post by: stonethecrows on November 12, 2019, 04:59:09 PM
DM, I fully understand and respect your stance on the 3rd Party , I am in the game over 15 year's , like you was never with a radio company (because I never trusted the cnuts).

Fortunately/Unfortunately as Hal has said technology has now taken over and if we want to survive we have got to embrace it.

It would be great if we could turn the clock back and make loads of CASH from the streets but I don't think that is ever going to happen as the world is slowly/quickly becoming a cashless society, even the beggers will have to have Credit Card machines if they want to survive.
Title: Re: Spy's Out there
Post by: dalymount on November 12, 2019, 05:19:06 PM
But you this is the point I have been trying to make all along . Of course people will go back to hailing cabs on the street. Do you really believe people won't go into town just because they now have to come out on the street to get a cab ,?  The only reason people tap a button on their phone now is, because they are fukkin spoilt. They are not going to turn around and say im not going out because I now have to come out to get a cab rather then tap a button . They are glad to hail a cab on Friday, and Saturday nights, and they just have to be trained to do that again. Drivers need to understand we can operate without dispatchers, but dispatchers cannot operate without drivers. Now looking at that situation from a logical point of view, who do you think holds all the aces ? That's right drivers. But what do the drivers choose to do ? They give control of THEIR business to these dispatchers

True but we can't operate without passengers.  And an awful lot of them choose to press a button on their phone.



Same with cash.  Plenty of young people nowadays don't carry cash, they pay with their phone, their watch and god knows what else.  That's why I have the sumup gadget.  (Well, that & American tourists going to the airport)

Title: Re: Spy's Out there
Post by: watty on November 12, 2019, 07:53:59 PM
The button exists.  If the FN button disappeared, another button would appear.

Another 'service business' example might be the chipper/pizza shops.  When was the last time you drove down the pizza shop, waited 10mins, and drove home with your pizza.  The vast majority of people are happy to phone/internet their pizza order, wait 30mins, pay €2 delivery charge, give the delivery guy a tip, while they watch Eastenders or whatever.

We, and pizza shops, are at the extreme end of options.  People can walk, bicycle, bus, drive themselves, etc.  People can cook their own food, ffs!  When you get to our end of the spending spectrum, people will pay extra to get what they want.  They'll pay €2 for you to drive to their front door.  They do not think, 'I'll save €2 if I walk to the bottom of my road and wait 10 mins in the rain for a taxi to come along.'  Half the world's population is women - just sayin'...  O:-)

That is a ridiculous question because the 'button' does exist and it won't be going anywhere any time soon.

Lucky fer you that you have some juicy spots in the pale where you get enough flag downs to keep you going.
I will only speak fer myself as a Cork driver and say that no way could I rely on street work only, maybe I could if I was to join ranks but that is not my thing. I cruise the streets and work FN, that is what works best fer me.

Belker believes (wrongly IMO) that if he says anything negative towards Hailo/MT/Freenow he will be penalised with less work.

The boss of Freenow could take a shite on his bonnet and Belker would say thank you sir can I have another.
I wouldn't agree with all that MFH, I had a bit of a spat published on here with them recently when they introduced the 5 Euro cancellation fee to customers after only TWO MINUTES but only applied the scrub to us after FIVE MINUTES, apart from that I don't really have any problems with the company, they offer me jobs on screen, if I like it I take it, if'n I don't then I decline it. PUC negates the commission.

Another example of drivers being treated like employees is, they just fall in line if the dispatcher says your not to charge a PUC. that is not a matter for the dispatcher, it's a matter for the driver. You have only hired this dispatcher to dispatch work to you, not to direct how you should run your business

You may well laugh Ken, but it is actually the position of the government to have all taxis compulsory aligned to dispatchers. Indeed this was expressed to myself, and two other drivers some years ago by the then minister Alan Kelly during a meeting in Kildare at. As far as I'm concerned drivers are playing right into their hands. When the time comes for compulsory alignment, and dispatchers are calling the shots, what happens when pay per job is done away with, and you have to pay a weekly freight to them, and at the same time there is no work out there because of recession. This is what my concern is. If you give dispatchers total control, they can do what they fukkin like with you. It's all great now, cause no such problems exist, but you just wait and see what happens when they get total control

Ken you said I should join the real world of what really will happen ? Well I'll tell ya what will happen. Recession will really happen . Work will dry up as a result , that will also really happen. Your beloved dispatcher will have total control of the industry , that will really happen. When they DO get control, you will be scrambling around trying to make up the dispatchers weekly freight that will really happen, and here is the punchline you'll be first in line to complain that these people now run the industry, and where are you going to find a ton plus every week to pay them

Post by: dalymount on November 13, 2019, 06:45:07 PM
F/N are very close to having total control, and when they do get it, and the others are no longer serious players, they will go to the government and insist on compulsory alignment, and they will find they will be pushing an open door. I can then see them changing the rules from a PPJ to a weekly frieght. When the recession kicks in, and drivers have to find 100 euro plus a week, that's when the fun will start this is why I am always urging drivers to take back control before it's to late.

Honestly Daly they could do it tomorrow and probably get away with it.Many of us are no longer able to work without it.Lads who used to work just the ranks have gone 100% app.

Next year(febuary I was told) we're definitely getting mandatory card payments so it might pull some work back to the ranks but it's hard to tell.If someone takes cards that automatically makes them more traceable.

every one of them without exception burst out in laughter at the Punch-line !

I had this fare a street pick-up off 'Pana' (St. Patrick street) last Sunday night, in she sits, big lass, Thigh high Black boots, Black leather mini-skirt, tattoo's on her thighs, about 40 odd and dragging this skinny young fella (about 30) behind her. She wasn't too bad looking but was a tad on the 'Rough side', anyway the song on the Cab radio 4FM was the hit from 'Survivor' called 'Eye of the Tiger' and yer-man-o starts belting out the tune. Yer-wan-o was all over yer man till he starting singing and then in her most common accent she comes out with; "Ah, wud ya ever shur up, dat wer ME WEDDING SONG !".

It was more of an explanation than an apology ken, you know it, I know it and I'd hazard a guess and say the dog on the street knows it. But sorry anyway if I offended you  again.

It was an explanation as to why I stuck in jimmy there.  It was NOT a suggestion that you are a paedo and well you know it. It was in reference to YOUR story and was just thrown in, as you know. But if you insist that I apologise for calling you a paedo, even though I didn't (as you know) then I apologise.  It seems you like apologies ken so yea, theres another feather for your cap, a notch on your bedpost.  Btw who the fook is Martin? Are you suggesting I'm like Martin Cahill, as in the general? Apologise immediately ken!

I don't think ken is 7 bellies,  perhaps jimmy 5 bellies? Ken cut down on the doughnuts, perhaps start giving more away rather than eating them.
