11: The Kidnapper
Interesting, odd stories are a dime a dozen for Uber and Lyft drivers. Buzzfeed user RedCorvette222 told an odd tale about his dad being accused by a rider. “Pre-COVID, my dad would drive for Uber late at night. One night, he picks up a drunk girl, but it just seems like a normal ride. After a while, she calmly asks him to pull over. He’s thinking she’s going to puke, so he does. Suddenly, she gets out and starts running down the street screaming that someone is trying to kidnap her! “he calls the cops, and my dad does, as well, to explain the situation and that he was just her Uber driver.
“The cops find her a few streets down and calm her down. Afterward, they ask him if he still wants to take her home to which he says no. ADVERTISEMENT Well, the next night, he picks up a few ladies going to a bar and they ask him to tell them wild stories. So he goes, ‘Well, here’s one that happened yesterday,’ and tells them everything. The girls start laughing and go, ‘We just heard this story from our friend! She was the girl!’ She was quite embarrassed the next day.”
