I'm not sure that calling 911 (pushing the emergency button) for someone spitting candy was appropriate..it's Fing CANDY ...

Unless he was aggressive and going to kick your assssss mentality .... It was FING CANDY .... It appears it was simply drunk and thought it would be cute to spit candy at his driver ? maybe it was his idea of hitting on you ? I don't know, but again it was Fing CANDY...


Did you say "Bill" or whatever .. what the f you doing ... if you want to go home you need to stop ..or something to that effect ..

JMO ..I think most of the time it's best to learn how to handle situations ourselves..dont be calling the Police everytime someone that is drunk is acting stupid

Spitting is classified above punching . It is assault . Spitting is an absolute insult . I handled it right and it’s 000 here . And there called lollies from an aggressor on something .

Saturday just gone I was doing my shift as per normal, when a rather intixicated individual got in the car .

I had done music going and did my usual greet of “ Hi , how you goin ?
There’s sweets in the tray and water in the cup holders and a phone charger if you need it .
I then started on my way
About ten minutes into drive I felt something in my neck and didn’t realise but the rider was spitting sweets at me .

I couldn’t even fathom what was going on but this rider was about to get out of my car . I turned off the app and said this ride finishes now . Get the f- out of my car you animal .
I would say drug affected .
I finally got to use the safety button as he refused to get out and was getting hit under the collar .
This never worried me cause I’ve way or the other he was getting out of car.

I couldn’t believe how quick police turned up and told them what happened which he was arrested
I had to go to station to do report and also report to Uber .
The officer said spitting is the same as assault ing someone and this will be taken very seriously .
I still can’t bekieve someone could be such a grub but that’s what happened . Thank goodness 99.999 percent of people are great .
I have very thick skin and love getting people home , but not at this cost
Sorry you had to go thru that. It sounds like you handled it like a pro and stopped a potentially dangerous situation from escalating. You are correct. Thankfully, most pax are good people. Now turn that frown upside down and get back to having a great day :smiles:

Make sure you show up to court! Otherwise he goes free
Yesssirrreee! We need to keep these dangerous mint-spewing animals off the street and in the pokey where they belong! Forever! Lock him up and throw away the key!

P.S. He probably won’t last too long in there, no street cred.

Hey Bubba, what you in for?

G’dayum, where is the dislike button?

Spitting is just F’n gross. Add free candy that was provided and getting spit while driving is total f’n disrespect....In ur own domain....I would blow a lid.

If u can’t see this, u are the disrespectful kind.

That makes a lot of sense , now Uber have technology for serial I star offenders who keep giving 1 star to drivers . It doesn’t record it and actually has reverse affect
So, let's say I take 20 rides as a passenger and get 5 drivers who give water. I give the 5 drivers who gave free stuff 1 star and the other 15 drivers 5 stars, does this make me a "serial I star offender". I would say no.

Even if it did qualify as "serial" what evidence do you have to support this claim: "It doesn’t record it and actually has reverse affect"

Sorry you got spit on, I hope the guy learns a lesson in court.

In Australia spitting is by law above punching someone . This guy was on ice and I was driving at 80 ks an hour to get him home Would you like it

Every time a driver gives stars it is recorded as some drivers give low scores to good passengers for short rides and the driver gets a warning as dies the rider if the rider just gives every driver a 1 it again recorded against their name and not only not counted but again warned . Uber is a massive statistical company and even when you turn app off all of a sudden you may see a surge close to you These are phantom surges . I can’t tell you how I know but trust me it is true
