5: Avoiding The Babysitter
Sometimes a customer just wants to have a good time. Buzzfeed user redragtop09 told the story of a fun night with two riders. “I used to drive Uber at fort Myers beach. Picked up 4 drunk as a skunk middle-aged people and crammed them into my tiny car. Was about to pull into their neighborhood (nice, gated, on the water) and the one guy was like, “I need you to follow that car!” And I’m like “whatever, let’s see how this plays out.
“So we start following this random SUV and I’m like “who is this guy?” And they’re like “we don’t know, but we have 20 minutes of babysitter left and we aren’t wasting it”. I reminded them they were on a triple rate surcharge and they didn’t care. Eventually, the car pulled over and everyone shouts at me “GO GO GO!!” And we sped off into the night. $100 ride, $20 tip, 5-star review. 100% worth it. Entertaining drunk, otherwise responsible people is a blast.”
