so I finished my installation of Lyft and was rather unpleasantly surprised to see it charged my card $5 right at the start. it was probably somewhere in the agreement but I only skimmed it. then I clicked "Request Lyft" as a test, assuming it would give me a chance to confirm or back out. it did not. I don't have GPS enabled, and though it trusts my user-input location enough to dispatch a driver, it doesn't trust it enough to let me cancel. I asked the driver, Doris, to charge me for her trouble but she said she can't, that Lyft does the charging. what extreme suckery. so now I've wasted someone's time and lost money, all for nothing. almost afraid to try Uber now.
