I was taking a women (20 - 24) to an interview.

Since it was late in the afternoon. I asked her what was the time of the interview?

She said, "It was at 5 oclock. I looked at my GPS and told her we wouldn"t arrive until 5:10.

Why don't you call them to see if they would wait?

She was adamant that they would be there.

I asked her, "if she got an offer, where she would work?"

She said, "At the location we were going."

I said, "Are you going to take an Uber to and from the location every day?" (The trip was about an hour on the New Jersey turnpike.)

She said, "She really needed the job and she would figure that out once she was hired."

About a half hour from the destination, she called the company. They told her since it was Friday, they were leaving early. She could reschedule for Monday.

After she hung up, she started crying. Then she told me that her Mother had converted her bedroom to a sewing room and she was living in a home for women that are pregnant. If she were pregnant, I didn't notice when I picked her up.

She also said she couldn't make it to an interview on Monday because her credit card was maxed out.

I ended the ride at that point because I didn't want to charge her credit card anymore. (A)

I turned around at the next exit and started back.

She then asked me to stop by her Mothers, which was on the way. (It wasn't) (B)

I stopped at her Mother's house and waited for about fifteen minutes. I was hoping someone in the house would ride her the rest of the way. (There were three vehicles in the driveway.)

Her Mother came out with her and thanked me for taking care of her daughter, and would I ride her to the home? (C)

I was stunned that her Mother wou...

I was stunned that her Mother would put her out of the house when she was pregnant.

This trip was over three hours long and I was relieved when it was over. 

It was so bad, that I thought she might jump out of the car at some point.

Did I drop her off at the home? No, she wanted to go to her boy friend's apartment. (D)

The question I have for my fellow drivers is:

What would you have done at (A)?

What would you have done at (B)?

What would you have done at (C)?

What would you have done at (D)?

    I thought this was like a choose your own adventure game.  I was excited until I read this depressing story about this dyfunctional family who really has no hope. 

    Got my own life to sort out, thank you. LOL

    A - When a woman is crying and saying her credit card is no good?  You did the right thing by ending the trip for two reasons. One, that's caring thing to do.  Two, maybe you wouldn't get paid anyways if her credit card bounces. (though, I guess that's on Uber.)

    B - Tough one. I don't think you should have driven to her mom's home.  She is overstaying your welcome there.  Why make you do that?

    C -  I don't think you should have agreed to take herhome, as I feel like they are trying to take advantage of you, but I wasn't there and I don't know how it was asked.  Knowing that there were three cars in the driveway, I am thinking they either didn't know you were a paid driver or they decided to take advantage.  You should have said, "can you request a ride, and I will try to respond."

    D - I don't think at that point it matters where you dropped her off.  This woman should have backed off and let you go.  I can't believe the lack of commons...

    Gosh, what's wrong with the world today?  I don't care how poor or down on the luck she is, she shouldn't play into your sympathy and take advantage of you like that.

      You are right.

      If I had to do it over again, I should have refused her Mother (there were three cars in the driveway) or I could have said to her Mother, "I'll ride her if you pay for my trip, otherwise someone in the house can ride her."

      I guess I got caught up in the girl's problems. No job, no money, Mother abandons her, boyfriend probably will also.

    My gosh, you are way better of a human than I am.  I may have ended the story at A and may never have gotten BC or D. 

    And that's taking a mercy on her. I could have kept driving and maxed out her credit card beyond her limits. Pre-A.

    I had these beauties before and 99 % is about a boyfriend whatever story.  One girl told me to F myself and of course  I cancelled mid trip and  called 911 to have her exit my car.
