"I. Was. Sauced" - An Honest "Tipping" Story of a Drunken Night

I saw this on social media.  I believe the credit goes to Robert Puckett.

I ordered an Uber back from the bar.

I. Was. Sauced.

For some reason, I kept telling the driver I would “give him the tip. Just the tip.”

Obviously referencing my johnson.

I just kept repeating that joke.

He was a quiet man and didn’t say much.

When he dropped me off at my house, he wouldn’t even look me in the eye.

I just remember saying “Umm here’s that tip I promised.” And I dropped a $5 in his passenger seat.

I still cringe thinking about that night.


I would like to take this time to thank all Uber drivers out there. You guys have to deal with people like me, and I’m so very sorry.

    Inebriated passengers are among my favorites. Fortunately they are 95% funny and only 5% unruly.

    I went to a local bar to pick up one fare. He didn't answer the phone so after a few minutes I parked and walked in. He was the lone patron, asleep at the bar.

    After the server woke him up he gratefully apologetically out to my car. He gave me unnecessary but accurate directions to his home during the entire 5-minute drive. And then told me I was the best Uber driver ever and he would tip me profusely on the app. Right. I was just glad he used Uber.

    I pulled up in front of his house and wished him a safe evening. He slapped me on the back jovially, then opened his door and fell out onto his front lawn. (This was near Seattle and it was raining profusely.)

    Are you all right? I asked.

    Sure, he responded, just give me a minute here. Then he began snoring.

    I drove off, hoping his wife would find him out there before he died of exposure.

    This guy is a great story teller.

    Also sincere. His last sentence shows that he is an honest individual and isn't afraid to admit and apologize for his mistakes. We've all done or said stupid things.
