Driverless cars are a big discussion right now, with some people saying they don’t want cars without a human element behind the wheel on the road, and with some other people being totally off their rocker.
One person who ordered an Uber must have been part of the second camp since they rode in a self-driving Uber. It was clearly branded so nobody could miss it. Isn’t the point of Uber letting people earn a little more money with their cars? Seems kind of weird to have this cyberpunk addition under their brand. This is really just a taxi, if we’re being honest.
The Perfect Way to Improve a Bad Day
We all have bad days every once in a while, and sometimes on those bad days, you're going to have to ride in someone else's car. But, if you're lucky, you might step into a vehicle that is prepared to make your bad day that much better.
This Uber driver's car has tons of glow-in-the-dark ceiling stickers with stars, moons, planets, and rocket ships. All you have to do is sit back and experience travel up in the heavens as your driver takes you to your destination. Whether or not his kids helped decorate the car or it was his choice, somebody made the right decision.
Back to the Basics
When it comes to some quick fun that older people these days will remember fondly, nothing beats the original Nintendo Entertainment System. One ride-share driver realized this was the perfect way to bring in a little more cash, so he set up an NES and included a little tip box.
There are probably a couple of games to choose from, but the person who took this picture has chosen one of the classics – the original Legend of Zelda. You might end up ordering a few more rides with this guy just to get through a few of the first dungeons.
Curious Musical Accompaniment
Most ride-share drivers will play some tunes on the radio, just so there isn't any awkward silence during the ride. That means that they, and the passengers, are at the mercy of the airwaves when it comes to what they listen to.
Twitter user “laina622” was riding when the song “Let's Get It On” started playing, which is a song that...is often used in specific events, not riding in the car with a stranger. Laina and the driver still managed to make awkward eye contact in the rearview mirror!
Smooth? Creepy? You Decide
One gal, Julie, used an Uber to get around during the day, and her driver, Jeffrey, forgot to give her a promo code for the ride. Really, he asked her out on a date through Uber, and we're going to have to pass this one off to our readers to determine if this one landed.
We have no information about whether or not Julie accepted this promo code, but she did take a screenshot and posted it on the internet. This isn't the way most of us would choose to ask someone on a date but at least it's kind of clever.
