Being a Taxi, Uber or Lyft driver may have its challenges—but it also makes for some pretty wild and juicy stories.
Someone asked taxi drivers of Reddit: "what is the strangest thing to have happened in your cab?"
1.) From dongbeinanren:
Driving in Toronto club land a little before closing. This girl gets in my cab crying (not that uncommon). I ask her where to and she says "Elmwood and Forest".
I ask her to repeat herself and again she says "Elmwood and Forest".
"Are you asking me to drive you to Buffalo?" I ask her incredulously.
"Do you have any idea what that's gonna cost?"
"I took my boyfriend's wallet."
I realize at this point that I shouldn't take her anywhere...but if I didn't need money I wouldn't be driving a cab, so I take her, meter running to Buffalo. The look on the Border Agent's face when I pull up in my Toronto cab was...resigned. I told him to ask her all the questions, I was only gonna be in the US for less than an hour. I roll down the back window and he just says "Never mind, just go."
