So i got an ping around midnight 5 minutes from me. The name is pretty unique, can be
either male or female. As soon as i got there , this guy came out of the house. I asked him
where to? He wants to hit an chase bank about 2 miles away and back. I was thinking
in my head, bummer i just did 3 minis already and this gonna be number 4 in an row.
When we got to the bank's drive through, he hands me his atm card and asks if he can trust
me, to which i reply no, i'm an stranger. He proceed to give me his pin anyways and asks me to
take out $1000 from the machine. The machines max limit turns out to be $800, so thats what we took out.
On the way back, he just hands me an $20 tip. I was very surprised , and felt it was kinda over
the top. So i started to say, its not necessary or something. He insisted and i got my first $20
tip ever on an minimum fare run.
Afterwards, i was trying to figure out why i initially declined it. I thought since most pax
tips nothing riding uber. Getting an $20 tip on mini run was just an bit much. Also was curious why would
someone would need to bring that much cash home at that time. I almost asked him, but thought better
of it.

This scenario is called "making sure you have enough money for the call girl". You picked him up, drove him to the bank and made it back to his place before the hooker arrived. You definitely deserve the $20 tip. Good job.

If that was a stolen card, you are the one on video withdrawing the money. There was no good reason for you to have done that.

Roll the rear window down and pull forward no way am I pulling money out of atms! If the FBI shows up to question you just tell them it wasn't intentional, I am sure they will understand!

Thx for the advice guys. I didn't think of the possible consequences. He doesn't seemed to be the type that would do that though. His an bit over the top, but not rude.....plus I think he was on something.
If this ever gets back to me, video would show I handed the whole wad of cash to him lol
