Anybody Got Any Rude Rider Stories?

Discussion in 'Stories' started by Fuhgeddaboudit, Mar 23, 2018.

  1. I tell ya, there are some real knuckleheads out there ....they’re lucky we don’t just drop em off in a ditch somewhere
    When the driver is polite, and the rider is rude for no apparent reason....they don’t know what they’re messin’ with .

    One time I picked up some middle aged man at the train station. He complained the whole way about Uber's navigation for 35 minutes and also reeked of alcohol.

    It’s funny to see that immortalized in cartoon form! The original video is even funnier!

    On this last St. Drunks day, I picked up some guys from the parade. Guy jumps in the front seat with an open bottle of beer.

    When I told him no over it because there were too many cops around, he threatened to punch me in the face.

    I kicked him and his buddies to the curb, and drove away.

    Sometimes I get rude dudes when their girlfriends have a conversation with me with question after question, and it pisses them off when they see I am not a fat slob..., I always start asking the dudes questions and play it neutral to side step any possible flirt because I am not about stealing anyone’s thunder (or whatever you call it) but it can be a real pain sometimes to try and stop someone asking a bunch of questions especially about rideshare - that is One occurrence that can make people rude

    As for solo pax male or female (I have NO idea what kind of day they are having or if they just recieved some really effed up news etc) so unless it is personally against me, I ignore it (except in rare circumstances) that is if I witness something before hand like an argument or some ******* yelling at people getting in my car etc (which rarely happens)

    I find most know there is no profit to gain by being an ******* or a B.I itch for a short ride and usually they ‘fake’ being nice long enough for them to get where they want to next, at least where I live, so my guess is they are having a really bad day that has zero to do with you and you are just a transportation tool to get them to the next point etc

    I once had a pax who didn’t say anything during the entire ride and then tipped me after the ride. Talk about rude! :oops:

    I gave a ride to “Jihad”. First ride was him talking the whole time how service industry deserves tips and he is a really good tipper (you know how this ends). Gets out. No tip

    Decline Jihad’s rides a few times knowing it’s always a long ride but the other night I said, “I’m gonna give him one more chance”. Long ride, no tip. Jihad is done in my car.

  13. I just had a girl in Upper Saddle River call me:

    "Can you do me a favor?" Oh crap, here it comes. "We got our fake id's confiscated. Can you buy me beer? I'll pay for it." Not going to happen...click,ride cancelled. I filed complaint to Uber saying that I should be entitled to cancellation fee since she had zero interest in a ride.

    I’m guilty of this.

    Except i would at least say hi in the beginning and thank you at the end.

    Did s/he at least greet you and/or thank you?

    I picked up a Jihad too. I swear when I saw that name I didn’t realize it was a real name and I thought the person was going to be a joker type or I was going to die in some kind of political statement bombing, with the (I assumed, fake) name being a clue for the FBI.

    Nope, it was two normal muslim women with British accents lol.

    I didn’t think it was a real name either lol. Also, he’s not a bad dude, just a bad tipper. I have no problem if people don’t tip me, I mean I do, but I don’t care if you don’t, just don’t sit there for 45 minutes telling me how you are the master of the fine art of tipping and then you don’t tip. Gimme a break Jihad.
