Luckily for Uber drivers, if they develop a crush on a customer, they already know where they live. A friend of Redditor Wodlesan's ordered an Uber, and not only received a drive home and (probably) 5 stars, but a big-ass bouquet that comes off as creepy.
The driver left flowers and a note where he last left her. The card reads:
[Name] it was a wonderful pleasure meeting you yesterday, I hope your day went well and I would love to take you out for dinner at Gyu kaku japanese BBQ brookline
While it would be a romantic gesture in a movie, it's a wee bit invasive seeing as it took looking at customer service information to pull off, and based on her reaction, she didn't give him any cues. She writes on Facebook:
THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST UBER EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE
I come home from work and find these at my doorstep. Hunting down my home address because you were my uber driver to send me flowers is not fucking "romantic" or whatever the fuck you call it. IT'S FUCKING CREEPY AS ALL HELL'S FUCKS. WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK. What the fuck do I do?!?!??!?!! Help me
Friends commented on the post with variations of "What...da...FUCK?!" but many Nice Guys on Reddit didn't understand why the gesture would be an issue. Wodlesan explained in the thread:
Every single girl that I personally know who experienced this type of interaction has been invariably creeped out by it. One that immediately comes to mind was a RN who received a delivery of roses and a similar card—to the hospital floor that we worked on—from a patient that she took care of for one day. She had a fun time responding to "Those are lovely! Did your boyfriend get you those?" for the rest of that shift.
Only the NSA should get to mine customers' private information for their desired ends.
