Drivers and Riders of Uber, Lyft, etc...

The most frequently asked question passengers ask me is "What is your craziest, scariest, or most funny Uber story? I thought I would share some of my stories here. The good, the bad, and the ugly! Names have been changed to protect the innocent, the drunk, the mean, and the crazy Uber/Lyft riders.  

Uber/Lyft drivers I would love to hear some of your stories/experience while driving.  Please feel free to share.

Uber/Lyft Riders please feel free to share your stories about your experiences with drivers. 

August 3rd. I pickup 3 ladies in their 20's, pretty and built very nice.  Two were nurses. I am not exactly sure what the one who sat up front was. They get in one in front is talkative. I start ride its approx. 20 min to destination. Front rider says "do you know what Sugar Babies.com is? I replied "I think I can guess".  She starts to tell me all about it.   I just joined last week and I have a 90 yr old guy message me. He wants to send a car for me & send me for massage, and a mani pedi. Then car will take me to Ruth Chris Steakhouse. We will have dinner the car will take us back to his house (hopefully not an Uber & I dont get request) I'll give him a ####job. If I do a good job he will give me an allowance. At this point I am speechless what do I say? So she is all excited and laughing so I just laugh. She continues. Another guy sent me a message while I was in church, introduced himself he said he was 64 and sent me a D pic. So She responds to pic (think its best i dont repeat what she says back to him as its XXX rated) in Church of all places, her response will send her to hell ...

Now I am thinking am I on some hidden camera show? Is she serious? The 2 friends in back are very quiet this whole time other thsn a few small laughs. Then she proceeds to show me the pic. Really too much info. I reply, I think your guy is a little older than 64 maybe 84 as 2 things are missing on each side of d pic. They are either down to his knees or the size of grapefruits. She proceeds to go on about how much $ she can get blah blah. The trip was finally over. I dont get it why tell your ride share driver, hell why tell anyone? Only in an Uber!

I picked up next rider and tell him the story. At the end of his trip he tipped 20.00 because he liked the story. Lol

I would love to hear driver or rider's experiences in an Uber. Please share your stories. If you would like to hear more stories as I have something funny, awful, or frightening happen every week then upvote post. Please share your stories also.

    I was travelling abroad and called for an Uber in Rome. In Italy there is no UberX or UberXL as they are all high end cars rolling under Uber Black. My pickup was a brand new BMW 7 series. The driver was a short stocky Italian woman. I think the only English she knew was Thank you and Welcome. Everything I asked was answered, “Welcome, Thank you” or “Thank you Welcome”. Never mind etiquette, this woman had it going on.

    On her left was an Ipad she was playing Texas Holdem on. On her right was an Iphone connected by bluetooth to her radio speakers and blaring Elvis tunes that she was singing to. Under the Iphone was an ashtray overflowing with butts and one hanging on her lip. She seemed to be talking to herself so I imagine she had a phone conversation going on through her bluetooth earpiece. On top of all that, she had both hands going either crocheting or knitting something. Every time we stopped at a light or in traffic she would grab the needles and knock...

On top of all that, she had both hands going either crocheting or knitting something. Every time we stopped at a light or in traffic she would grab the needles and knock out a few stitches. At first I was little perturbed, mainly because of the smokiness of the car. Then I thought “hey, when in Rome…” The woman didn’t miss a poker hand, a song, a puff or a stitch in the thirty minutes it took to complete the ride. Talk about multitasking. Thanks for you upvote.

      Massively talented multi-tasking woman.  Kudos.  and she got you there and you are still alive to tell the tale.

      "When in rome" was exactly what I was thinking as I read your story.  Too funny.  and it was actually in Rome too.

I look at GPS. Its putting me on PA Turnpike. Now where ever I get off I am not going to know where I am so obviously relying on GPS completely. Go up a few exists get off. Its dark as hell. I swear Bucks County suburbs doesnt like or is too cheap to put up street lights. Everything is so dark you see nothing  when you look behind you. At this times roads are not only dark but no traffic around. The guys start speaking in their language now, up to this point their conversations were all English even to each other. Before I go further I was under impression destination was one of their homes. Now I have to turn into a dark business complex.

I am so ready to turn around at this point but had no idea where I could go or what i would say to them about turning around. Hearts pounding, nervous. Drive about .5 mile and up on my right was a Hotel. Never so grateful to see one. This was my 2nd experience on a ride that really scared me being a female driver. I think after all my stripper, strip club experiences (as I have 2 other time I had a pick up) I need to stay away from those places. Those rides are either miserable, scarey  or just plain strange. Do you think Uber would deactivate me for not driving to or picking up from those places? Lol Yes definately.

    August 10th Drop off my last 2 very drunk riders who drove me crazy but were funny around 2:10.  I decided to call it a night before it got worse. I drive in Philadelphia. I pull up to Cottman and Torresdale Ave. Not a great neighborhood but not the worst here in PhillyThere is a beautiful Husky with a leash roaming the middle of the busy intersection no tags. So I pull over & decide to get out slowly in case this dog bites. He comes barreling around the car as soon as I open door and tries to climb on my lap and starts to cry. Ok at least he is friendly. I call a 24 hr. Vet ask what they can suggest I do. They give me animal control's number. I call them guy responds"bring him to Front & Huntingdon park and put him in a cage" and hung up. Ok what cage, where is it on the property? Then it hit me. It's now 2:30 am unless you have bullet proof body armour and bullet proof car and you are packing (and i dont mean lunch).

Ok what cage, where is it on the property? Then it hit me. It's now 2:30 am unless you have bullet proof body armour and bullet proof car and you are packing (and i dont mean lunch). There is no way I am going to that hood at 230pm let alone 230am. So I am standing in front of my double parked car with a dog trying to figure out what to do. Some nice people would ask if I was ok some were just a little shady (especially one man who pulled over a block away & watched me for 10 min) All i could here in my head was my dad screaming at me "are you crazy that time of morning in either of those hoods are you an idiot"? I am sure he was doing flips in his grave. So now I google "can i call 911 for a stray dog in Phila" google says yes so it must be ok right. I call 911 operator responds "I guess you want them to come get dog" I say well yes i cant leave him roaming the streets. Did I mention dog had an odor that wasnt a good one and was scratching and biting at his skin so I assume he had at the very least fleas, I cant put him in my clean nice smelling Uber or next rider may rate me 1 star for smell.. Now its after 3am I need to get off this corner. I know damn right well every police car in the district is avoiding that intersection like the plague  Ten more min. go by I finally see a police car and flag him down. An Officer out of his district (from next district over) must have felt sorry for me or it was Divine Intervention. He gets out of car I explain my dilemma (i all ready have a dog, dont have time for another dog, & most imp. I cant put dirty, smelly, flea ridden dog in my car as I drive for Uber my ratings will drop) He then takes some info from me and takes this beautiful Husky in the back of his car. I was truly grateful. Shout out to Officer Milligan. Only in an Uber.

    If you enjoy these stories I have plenty more. At least once a week something funny, crazy, or bad happens while driving for Uber.  I would love to hear some of your driver or rider stories. Please feel free to share your stories here.

      UPDATE

      Driving this past Saturday night with passenger in heavy rain headed down Torresdale Ave.  I was 2 blocks from the intersection where I found the dog I talked about in previous thread. Out of the corner of my eye I spot a dog walking out between 2 parked cars. I say "shit"  swerve and hit brakes to avoid him and apologize to rider. Rider replies, "its ok I seen him". The one night I needed a back seat driver this male says nothing. Lol  I have (usually men older than 45) feel the need to back seat drive or give directions even though GPS is giving same directions. Guess some men still think women cant drive. Lol   I think he looks just like  the dog I found roaming in the streets months back. I looked at dog again and sure enough its him. Same crappy leash. Either the people let him roam or he is an escape artist. Either way I wish his owner would stop letting him out or do something to prevent him from escaping. He is going to...

He is going to get hurt or killed in an accident. Both times he was on heavily travelled roads in the dark. Had i not had a passenger I probably would've stopped again. Just thought it was interesting I came across the same dog.

        People obviously not taking care of their dog too well. Yes that is strange that you came across same dog 2 times. Wonder if dog always wanders the streets? Neighbors should report this dog its going to get hit by a car.

      What selfless act.  I wouldn't have given a care for some stray dog in the streets, especially at those hours and in such a neighborhood.  I will call you crazy but that comes with my respect as well.  

      BTW, it looks like Uber driving never ceases to give you great experiences and stories to go with them.  I have never driven one, but I should consider even just for the life lessons I am sure I will learn

        I have to agree on the part about "crazy" because of the time and place. Thank you for adding "comes from my respect as well" much appreciated. Most of my experiences are either funny, crazy, somewhat frightening, and  a few annoying ones. 

        I meet people from all over the world. I meet people from all walks of life. I started Ubering when I started Nursing School. I needed something with flexibility. My background is 35 yrs in healthcare field just not as a nurse.  I knew how to drive, I love to drive, and like meeting new people. 

        Since driving for Uber I have met some of the most interesting people. Most are kind and sweet. I love hearing their stories. I have had great experiences, scary, funny, interesting, down right weird, just a few bad experiences.  I would say 75% of the people are decent, caring, kind people, 15%  are not to bad but a little less kind, caring, and sweet,  the other 10% well lets just say I wish they never stepped foot i...

Some nights I have a great time and some nights after 3 or 4 rides I go home because it was just awful. Just 1 person can make or break your night, set the mood for the rest of your shift. Some nights I come home and feel like I was out all night having fun with friends. Other nights I cant wait to get it over with and I swear thats it never driving again. When I have a few riders in a row 3 is my magic number lol that just pull me down, make my spirits low etc I go in for the night. I go out earlier next day and hope my luck changes. Full moon nights can be interesting. Trust me you will learn some lessons. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Then you get that one rider that makes up for all the idiots. Lol More decent riders than not so decent. I thought I had stories to tell from what I seen in wirking in hospitals, nursing homes  doctors offices but Ubering definately will give you stories to tell. Lol Thank you for your comment. Even though you called me crazy. Lol. I have plenty of stories to tell if you like hearing them I have no problem telling them. Take care

        The drunk guys were so drunk that they ordered the Uber at 1:50am. to take them to a bar that closed at 2am. We got there at 2:02am and shocker the bar wouldnt let them in. I counted my blessings they were happy drunks and got out of there before they had time to ask me to take them back home. Although it probably would've been safer to take rhem home than it was standing on the corner with the dog. I did  find out later that the police have been dealing with prostitution on that corner. New age prostitution, you can proposition the female or the dog your choice.lol Dont know what happened to the drunk guys maybe they found a prostitute and had a fun night or they got another Uber driver to torture. Guess we will never know.. Thank you for your post

          Ha! I was gonna say. I thought you were saying that those "drunk" guys were actually masterminds and this whole thing was a plan to get prostitutes.  If the guys requested a rider immediately, it would have pinged you, as you were probably the closest driver!

          I usually turn off my phone for a few minutes after I cancel any ride. Super awkward when I get matched up with the same pax.  Learned that the hard way.

            They were harmless just loud. I just dropped off 2 very drunk paramedics in Philly. I asked what crazy stories they had. It involved a big well built muscle head guy and a "toy" that his wife was playing with and it got stuck in a tight dark place on the dude and they couldn't get it out. So who do they call? Philadelphia Fire Department Rescue Squad $800.00. He should've called an Uber much cheaper even during a surge.

    Weekend before Halloween. I had a quiet but steady Friday night for the most part. Early Saturday morning around 5:30 I get a ride request few minutes away. I figure its someone headed to work. It was more "the walk of shame, quick exit" ride.  She comes right out gets into my car I'm not really paying much attention to her. It's a short trip we start talking and she tells me she has to be in work in 2 hrs. and was up.drinking all night . Then she proceeds to tell me something about the stockings she had on but no longer has them. Not quite sure where they ended up. Anyway she goes on about wearing a light up tutu and how her butt was sticking out but she had stockings on so it wasnt resl slutty. So now I am thinking if she dont have the stockings to cover her ass what is she wearing? Oh why did I ask? Its one of those things you really dont want to know the answer to.

I shouldve continued not paying any attention to her. She says 'i cancelled 6/7 Ubers until you came up as my driver. When I seen it was a female I felt better".  "I didnt want a creepy guy picking me up with my bare ass hanging out", Umm did I just hear her correctly?  I find myself asking that question on many Uber rides, sometimes I think I hear things incorrectly. Unfortunately on these rides my hearing is just fine. IThe light comes on, it becomes crystal clear my rider is sitting in my back seat with a light up tutu with a bare ass not to mention what else is bare. As I process all this we reach destination. Dont know how she is going to explain this to her mom. Good luck. I pull a few blocks away and pull over,  my reaction out loud talking to myself "wtf is wrong with these people". I gloved, gowned, masked, got the bio hazard bag and began scrubbing my seat. I then took a can of lysol and doused my seat in it. Some things I thought about while cleaning the car? Where were the tights? Were they under the dude she slept with and just wanted to escape without waking him? Why didnt she ask to borrow a pair of boxers, sweats, shorts, even a damn trash bag? Who the hell does this? I have that answer Millennials! What kind of parents does she have that she feels she could walk through the front door like that? I thought working in healthcare you heard it and seen it all. I've since changed my thinking on that. Only in an Uber.

    Was driving over the weekend on Saturday night. I get a request for Uber XL. I pull up and some very drunk females come out stumbling down the steps. Three of them head to my car. Two hopped in back seat and I start trip. Another one decides to sit up front as she gets in I see she has open beer bottle. Normally I wouldve said something but it was a 5 min ride and we all know what my rating for that trip would be. It was also 1130pm when all 8th district police would be settled in dark corners for their naps for the remainder of the night.  So I say nothing. Everyones belted and off we go. First thing she says is dont worry about the beer I'ma cop and the one behind you is a sargeant. I have my badge with me. Philly's finest at their best.

She starts talking to me & telling me about the male stripper that someone had ordered for the girl in the back (her bachlorette party). She was complaining how old, saggy, and hairy he was. Then she tells me about the strip club they went to. Apparently the male stripper picked big mouth cop to come up on stage. He asks what type of underwear she had on.? She replies a "gstring you wanna smell them"? He replies, "I think we need a new volunteer up here". She thinks it is hysterical and I guess normal. This goes back and forth about the night  at the strip club. We pull up to the bar she gets out and drops the bottle as it shatters and splashes everywhere. Thankfully not in my car. She then proceeds to tell the 5 people standing outside to mind their own business i'm a cop. Wth is wrong with these women? I thought the strippers I picked up were bad. The customers are even worse. I've picked up men from strip clubs and they dont feel the need to tell me about their night at the strip club. Thankfully. Why do people feel the need to tell things like this to their Uber driver? She did hand me a 20.00 tip though. As soon as they exit I get out of there. I take a few rides and its now 2am I get a ride request to pick up at Brick House but name is different from crazy drunk big mouth badge carrying beer dropping cop. I sit for 2 min. and out comes???? You guessed it. It was the even more drunk crazy big mouth badge carrying beer dropping cop. Now bride to be is really drunk looking for a penis straw she dropped. She asks if she can dump her drink out the window. I say go for it as I really dont want alcohol in my car & road was deserted. She decides to wait until 2 cars are behind us and proceeds to throw a drink out the window. Not the alcohol I thought she meant the whole cup with penis straw and alcohol. So of course it hits the car behind us. They pull besides my car yelling and screaming. Drunk crazy cop pulls badge out and slurs "get out of hear before I have you locked up". Thankfully it was a group of teens that she was able to scare away with her badge. That was my last ride for the night . When your 1st pick up after 2am is a disaster its time to head home for the night before it gets worse.

    Saturday night I pick up 4 guys in mid to late 20's . First topic of conversation is their friend talking about another friend at a strip club. The friend steals recently deceased grandmother's credit card. Doesnt charge anything worthwhile but goes to strip club and spends 4,000.00 + there. My 1st thought was what an awful grandchild. Next thought is how can you spend that much in one night? I am going to assume maybe he got to take a few strippers home for the night? How much can a lap dance cost? Alcohol? BTW he didnt take any of his friends with him. How rude! Last thought what an idiot. Maybe someone can explain what he spent over 4,000.00 on. He did get caught. Mom had a lot of explaining to do to credit card company. Son has to pay it all back to credit card company. Hope he got something good and memorable that night. Hopefully not an STD. Moral of story dont steal dead grandmothers cc cause even though deceased she got payback.

    Over the summer picked up a guy in his mid 20's. We talked for a few min. and then it got quiet for a few min. out of the blue guy says "i like your shoes". I dont know if I hear him right so i repeat "my shoes" he replies yes. So I am thinking ok they are 5.00 black canvas cheap wal mart sneakers but ok whatever so I say "thank you". Few more min. go by he says "I really like shoes". I was weirded out at 1st comment but things are getting more strange. Few more min. of silence he says "its really hot out there today. How long have you been wearing those sneakers today"? I glance at phine see the big red bar that says "end trip" never been so happy to see it. Pull over flip up locks and say "have a great night". As soon as he exits I lock doors and get out of there asap. I dont know where he was headed with this and I can assure you I dont want to know. I can only speculate maybe he had a foot fetish?

Maybe i should've answered him. I may have made more $ giving him my cheap canvas sneakers to do whatever with than I did on his 3 mile trip. Lol  As dumb as this may sound that was definately my most weirdest trip to date as of the summer.

    Great stories.  I actually find it cute that you are so surprised.

    I've been driving taxis for more than 25 years, and I have picked up a plenty of prostitutes and have had great conversations with many of them. Many keep to themselves, but it's pretty obvious when they are "working."

    Taxis is the primary transport for working girls (and men).  If I drove the weekends, I would regularly get calls from them.  In some cases, I've been told to wait outside because the stop will be quick.  So many stories I can share....

    Most obvious times were always 2:00AM to 5:00AM on the weekends.  Then again, they do happen at other times too.  Random Tuesday nights.  Random Thursday mornings. LOL.

      I was surprised how open and excited she was to share her story with a stranger. From what I hear many female college students do this. I am older and from different generation what do i know. Lol I forgot to mention when zI got my next rider he liked my story so much the tipped me 20.00 cash for 4 mile ride. Lol

        Yes, but more in combination with other things.  For example, if you see a woman riding alone, at 3:00AM, she looks freshened, and isn't going home...I can usually surmise that she is "working." I mean who looks like that at those hours?  and riding alone?  Dressed like that?

        There are also other queues, right?  Like cash payments.  Going to a new address, and she is not aware of the destination.  

        Also remember that I used to drive a taxi and some clients would call me.  I had regulars that used my service in Allston/Boston to get around.  They would call me up and I have seen patterns in their rides and where their "customers" lived.

    One of my shifts used to be repeatedly picking up strippers from a local gentleman's club, and shuttling them back and forth from local hotels and residents.   Always paid cash, even though my cab n later years was equipped with CC machine. 

    For some reason, almost always, they would ask to change in the back of the car.  Yes, I have gotten quite a number of shows, all while being paid.  Ha!

      I've picked up strippers twice. One stripper had a fit & started screaming at me because I didnt pick her up at stripper enterance. The app put me in front of the place. I had never been there before. She called me screaming so I drive around to where she told me but there were people all over plus 2 entrances/exits so I ask the first female I see if she was my passenger. She ignores me then I see Mr. Big and Beefy with the tight muscle head shirt on wave me over. She opens door starts screaming why didnt you come here 1st & why were you talking to those people? I try to explain that the pick up location put me up front and what people are you talking about? She screams the people in the car. I reply "what people, what car" . She screams again the people in the car. I am getting annoyed now, because she hasnt stopped screaming at me and what people in what car not a clue who she was referring to.

I should've left when I was eligible for cancel fee. We drive a mile GPS says make left turn screaming stripper barks order i will tell you where to go. We go another mile another barking order "pull into that gas station I need something". She needed something all right some manners or a foot up her ass. I pull in to this gas station that is packed has a line of cars to get in (will explain the line of cars at 3am at a gas station another time). I finally get into lot she gets out and I plot my escape. Why should I take her screaming, order barking ass anywhere else they dont pay me enough for this? I put the car in drive ready to pull out and my guilty conscience kicks in. Its 3am you cant do that. Then the  little devil on my shoulder says go for it. Good conscience won I stayed but when she got back in I had a little talk with her. By the time i dropped her off she was happy. So happy when she got out she said "i am going to give you 5 stars". I wanted to reply "stick your 5 stars so far up (that thing you shake for money)that they shoot out of your mouth and hand over some of those bills you made tonight.  She was out right rude and bossy. 

      The 2nd stripper I picked up didnt yell at me but she also barked orders. Wont get into much detail as I just wrote a book about stripper #1. Her barking orders were hello as she entered car  order #1"put this radio station on, order #2 turn volumn up ill tell you when to stop" #3 dont speak to me while music is on #4 put the heat up. No please no thank you ànd you guessed it no tip. Last but not least we pull up to destination my app shows end trip you've arrived i end it wait for her to get the hell out. But she needs to bark 1 more order #5 "I've never been here before just sit here until I can find my friend then you can leave". Must be a stripper thing to bark orders and not tip. These 2 were in my first month of driving they taught me a few things that night.  No, one of those things was not how to work a stripper pole. Thanks for sharing R Paulson. Would love to here more stories.

        Why are these strippers such divas.  Aren't they in the customer facing business?  I guess when they are off the shift, they really want attention and be treated like they treat their customers.  

        Not sure what happened in the back entrance.  Maybe she was famous.  Like Stormy. LOL.

          Maybe she didn't have many lap dances or get many tips that night. After I confronted her in a nice polite way her attitude changed. She said she had a ”long night". She also said all the drivers pick her up in the wrong place (the spot where I went, where the app showed). I wanted to say if you know this why don't you send the drivers's a text. Decided against it didn't want to ruin the mood she was in or make her night longer. I still can't figure out why she was so concerned about me talking to the people in the car (I wasn't ) but she went on about that for a few minutes screaming at me in the beginning of ride. I avoid that area now. Thank you fir your comment.

            You are a warm sympathetic person.  Instead of labeling her as a horrible person, you assumed she had a bad day.  Giving the benefit of the doubt.  I think that is very respectful and there should be more of that in the world.

              She didn't have the contact with the car I supposedly did. It was just weird almost like she was paranoid about something. I still don't get why she was so upset to this day. Iv've thought about it, only thing I cane up with is she had issue of some kind with the people in the car and thought I was in on whatever they were doing or she was high on drugs and just paranoid. She had protection until she got in my car Mr. Big Steroid  Muscle man stood outside and watched girls until they left club. Whatever caused her to flip out her mood changed when she came out of gas station.  She went from super angry possibly paranoid to normal nice Uber rider.

    Two weeks ago Saturday ended up in Center City Philly. Hate it down there but it was surged and consecitive ride bonus was offered. Wasnt going to make it back to burbs so stayed there. Uber screwed up pick up location and sent me towards an old off ramp on 95 now closed and oncoming traffic to be T boned. I then realized I left my bullet proof car and vest at home along with my body armour and gun. Shit went wrong in first 2 min of accepting trip it was just going to get worse. I cancelled. I then ended up over by Sugar House Casino on small side street  so I could turn around and get the hell outta there. Its 2am and no street lights and had a pair of 10 yr old glasses on. I can assure you what I seen next was as clear as day. A somewhat decent 20 something girl in an extremely short dress and high heels is headed towards casino. I can only assume she was a prostitute who just conducted business and got out of a car rather quickly. Her dress in the front never got pulled down...

No underwear a full on 1970's ungroomed black bush is all you could see.  How do you not know your whole front area is hanging out for the world to see and the wind to blow through. It was chilly out.  Surprised icicles were not hanging off. I really wanted yo hand her a few bucks to get waxed or groomed. Grateful she wasnt my next rider cause even though I just cancelled a rider she would've been cancelled also.

    Once I was in an Uber and my driver gets a phone call, he puts it on speaker and starts chatting with his buddy about how hes driving a nice passenger currently (I exchange nice pleasantries with his friend on the phone), then they continue on about a BBQ that weekend and quick updates on their kids and hang up. When they hang up my driver turns to me and says Ill give you 3 gueses as to who you were just speaking with. Turns out it was Mike Eruzione!! I was in Winthrop, MA where he is from so it makes sense but I wish I had known while he was actually on the phone. Closest I have ever come to a celebrity :)
