Uber will tell you your passenger rating now

I’m at the same time appalled and embarrassed.

The good people at Quartz — whom we produce a podcast with, by the way, called Actuality — noticed Uber has decided to let you know your user rating if you ask for it.

You know how users can rate drivers? They rate you, too.

Which gets me to the appalling and embarrassing part.

Turns out I clock in as an Uber rider at a mere three and a half stars out of five.
