Oh the hypocrisy

I don't have many stories in my Uber childhood, but today I picked up a college age couple at a religious university in Seattle and hauled them up near UW. The entire trip these two young woman talked about how they were drilling a guy about masterbation until he was so uncomfortable that they were laughing in hysterically at him. Then they talked about how they asked him how often he watches porn and he would refuse to answer because it was a conversation he didn't want to have. These girls were laughing about how uncomfortable they were making this guy - and talking to each other how watching porn is natural and that they don't watch more than once a week.

I'm just sitting there listening and thinking about how different this story would be told if I was a female driver and the pax were male.

Were they Hot? Was it 2 girls? 2 girls and and guy?
Oh I see where that wasn't clear. It was two girls, and they were talking about a guy(s) and how they would manipulate them by making them uncomfortable with the conversation.

Hot? I'm not sure, they became super ugly as soon as they got in the back seat.

Slippery slope to even consider it. But yes, people talk about disgusting things regardless of the time and situation. I hear people at dinner just being filthy.

that guy must have been gay I'm thinkin. I dont think a straight guy would have been that uncomfortable. It is really funny that they seemed to think it was funny.. I'm sure a female driver would have reported it and they would got a nasty note or worse..

I'm not really sure what the big deal is. That just comes with the job if you want to drive ride share. I'm so immune to what people talk about in the back seat. The racy stuff I hear -- particularly from guys talking about their evening trying to hook up with girls (or other guys if they're gay) at the bars is pretty routine. And if I'm making money off the trip, and they do happen to tip, what they talk about doesn't bother me in the least.....unless it's blatantly racist. Fortunately I haven't run into that yet.

Confirmation stupid isn't going anywhere. It's here to stay.

Some gorls can be so two faced. They give you one version of themselves to your face and then when there with someone else could be talking shit about you.

I gave a ride last year to a girl who was on the phone the entire ride. She started iut talking to her sister about how much they hate their mom. Then the mom calls and shes starts talking shit about her sister to her mom. Then her best friend called and she started talking shit about the mom and sister to her best friend??? Some poeple are just ridiculous. I 1 starred her just for being a loser.

So you say you're uncomfortable with the subject matter, and could they please change the subject to one more appropriate for a work environment.

Or let it slide.

You're be surprised at some of the stuff I'd heard, driving...

You know how HS/College guys will sometimes have a competition amongst themselves for how many co-eds they hook up with?

When girls get into these competitions, generally speaking, they differ in that part of the goal of the competition is to continue a link with each other after school is over. Which leads us to a competition that I noticed certain groups of Jewish coeds get involved with where they compete to see which of them can "collect" the most "intacts/uncuts" before they settle down and marry a nice Jewish young man.

I had a college senior that was a really good looking guy, built like a brick wall, and played football for the school. You're general "great catch" for most college co-eds.... He was sobbing in my front seat because his girlfriend, that he was in love with, was applying a great deal of pressure for him to do something sexually that he didn't want to do, wasn't comfortable with, etc. (No, I don't know what it was.)

I had to explain to him how to explain to her that "no means no" and pressure and coersion being wrong are all two-way streets.

I've had guys in the car lamenting they couldn't find "nice" girls to have relationships with--that the girls were all just looking for hook-ups, and a good half don't even want to stay the night.

Seems to me the roles have been somewhat reversed.

Doesn't bother me a bit - that's not the point I was making. The point was that if it were to male pax and a female driver the female would have been offended and potentially accused the pax and reported them for making her uncomfortable. Just think it's funny that there is such a double standard, that's all.

I'm not arguing that there's not a double standard. I'm just saying, yea what if the female driver reported the PAX for making her feel uncomfortable. Do you think Uber or Lyft would care or do anything about it? I don't. My point is if you're going to do this job, you have to just let it go or kick them out of your car. It's obviously a totally different situation if it becomes physical in any way. That becomes sexual battery which is a crime. Talking dirty/making you feel uncomfortable may be rude and inappropriate, but it's not criminal behavior. You know as well as I do that the ride share companies side with the PAX by default.
