    I get asked this question several times a night. “Aren’t you afraid your going to get murdered driving for UBER?” Honestly, I would like to know Uber’s textbook answer to quote. I get so sick of being asked this from both Males and Females young and old.
     
  2. “Yes, I’m very afraid.
    But what choice do I have?”

    LMAO! Me murdered? What are the chances that 2 homicidal maniacs would be in the same Uber?

    I don't get depressed very often. When I do, I get the urge to drive at night.

    But when I'm actually working in the evening, it's not something I think about, because my mind is otherwise preoccupied.

  7. Love when I get asked if I ever have any crazy people in the car.

    I just make solid eye contact in the mirror and grin..."Every Day, every single day".

    I had one that I suspected yesterday afternoon.

    At the times when I glanced at her in the mirror, she was looking at me. Numerous times.

    And the topper was when she said she liked flying Jet Blue. (She really did say it.)

    Are you sure you’re not experiencing cognitive dissonance? That’s when you don’t want to think about the possibility of you actually being murdered so you put it out of your mind or convince yourself there’s no risk, but every time a rider brings it up, this issue is thrust back into your mind and causes an irritating feeling?

    Deal with it head on if it’s bothering you. Get yourself a stun gun or some pepper spray. Then you’ll have some protection and an answer for the riders.
     
  11. Its not much security but I know their app is connected to a name and bank account.

    I am in New York and Pepper Spray is Illegal, so I always tell them (usually Millennial girls) that I carry bear spray which is Legal and I am not afraid to use it.

    I agree that they are willingly getting into my ride and I am a complete stranger. The kicker is I know where they live.

    I say I am more afraid of losing healthcare social security, Medicare, and my right to vote without three forms of picture ID.
