For years, taxicab confessions were such a well-known phenomenon that they even got their own show on HBO in the 90s, but now it's the 2010s—and that means people are using their phones to summon drivers right to their house so they can drunkenly reveal their darkest secrets. When someone on reddit asked Uber drivers to spill the beans on what passengers let slip on rides (besides the contents of what they drank at the bar), it was like they'd just been waiting to be asked. Thousands of responses came forth, but here are 10 of the best:
1. User YetiPie kicks things off with the classic tale of a backseat romance with more than meets the eye.
I picked up this young overly affectionate couple that spent the entire trip making out in my backseat and telling each other that they loved each other. Cute.
So I drop off the couple and head on my way to pick up my text fare. I hear a cellphone ring in my backseat, realize it's my previous ride's, and pick up the phone to let them know I have it and I'll come back to drop it off. Turns out it was the guys wife phoning to check in on him while he was on a business trip, which he was thoroughly enjoying with his mistress
YetiPie continued when someone asked him if the guy gave him a good rating.
Yeah, 5 stars and a tip. When I was going to drop off the phone I had planned to say, in front of him and his mistress: "your wife sounds like a lovely person." I approached him with the phone and he handed me a 100. I was completely caught off guard so I thanked him and left...My plan totally fizzled
