Drivers get plenty of interesting characters riding in their cars, but some of the drivers themselves are pretty weird, too. Weird isn’t always bad, though. Case in point, this driver’s trim, which has the name and symbol of the service that he provides. Is that going to make the tips go up?
Is he going to get a higher rating? It’s at least pretty funny. And it’s memorable. Sometimes being memorable is just as good as being good, especially when the line between a “good” driver and a “great” driver can be so slim.
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.
Getting All Kinds of Festive
Lots of ride-sharing drivers take the holidays to spruce up their cars to be a little more festive. According to the story that came along with this picture, one person stepped into their ordered car and said that the driver should consider wearing a Santa hat to be a little more celebratory.
That's when the driver pointed at the ceiling of the car. Yes indeed, there is a line of bright red tinsel strung up between the hangers, bedecked with small green presents. There are also candy canes hung and ready to be snatched by riders that need a little holiday treat. Somehow, the rider got into the car and missed all that.
These Just Keep Getting Better and Better
There are a couple of really fancy setups in some of the cars on this list, but this one might take the cake. In fact, the only way it could be better is if there was cake. This car boasts a collection of hand lotions and sanitizers, screens you can use to watch movies, and what even appears to be an entirely separate screen that is attached to a Playstation device.
Finally, there is a dewdrop-shaped metal object, with a use that escapes use. It has buttons, it's plugged into something, and it has some holes on the front. Let us know what it does!
It's a Cousin to “Hold My Beer”
Now, why would a picture of a smashed-up car make it onto this list of crazy ride-sharing stories? See if you can put the pieces together. If you can, you're probably smarter than the driver of this car.
According to the story we found, the driver turned to the passenger, said “Watch this,” and then started putting the car into a drift. He immediately crashed into a post. If you're going to say “watch this,” make sure you know what you're doing, or your passenger might be walking home through two miles of freezing rain, giving you a one-star rating.
