Ride-sharing platforms like Uber and Lyft have completely changed the way people commute. They took the middleman out of the old-fashioned taxi cab format for a substantial discount. Career Uber drivers do a lot of driving, which means there’s a good deal of strange stories to tell. You’ve probably watched the news and seen these horror stories all over the media.
Rideshare drivers put up with some serious crap, so naturally, it can be entertaining to read about these stories. Let’s take a look at some of the wildest stories that Uber and Lyft drivers (and some cabbies) have been through.
20: Frozen Puke
Ridesharing is popular because it’s a safe alternative to driving after drinking. IDontDrive62 talked about one intoxicated night that was a bit too much to handle. “Some friends and I Ubered back later night after a party. Being intoxicated AF, my friends sitting next to me started to heave, so I, work my quick thinking, opened the window pushed him to puke outside, in the freezing February air. He did his duty and we were all thankful that he decided to puke outside.
“Eventually, we arrive by my house and get out. I look on the outside of the car and the puke had FROZEN all along the outside of the car by the window. The side of the car had puke on it. We spent an hour helping the poor Uber driver clean it, by throwing hot water from inside the house and someone quickly scrubbing.”
