Driving for an app like Uber or Lyft may have its perks, like flexible scheduling, and getting to make smalltalk with strangers (my own personal Hell but many Uber drivers seem to enjoy it). But picking up complete strangers and driving them around has its downsides, like the fact that you never know what kind of creepy, weird, or batsh*t person (or people) could take a seat in the back of your car, suddenly plunging your world in to chaos.
In a popular Reddit thread, someone asked Uber drivers: "what's the creepiest, weirdest, and/or most bizarre passenger experience you've had?"
1.) From idiotOnAnApp:
3am. Drive up to an old bar. Guy and his friend get in and immediately start laughing. I dont question because I figured they were drunk, and from the smell, stoned too. About half way to their destination, the guys friend asked me for my wallet because he left his driver's license in it. I started laughing because that's the stupidest thing I ever heard. My friend a few months prior bought a new wallet and left his old one in the my car, so I put a single dollar in it and handed it to him. He hopped out of the car and ran a few feet away before saying "What the hell? 1 dollar? You're broke as hell!"
