If pressed, we really couldn’t tell you why this person has a computer keyboard strung up on their steering wheel. Our best guess is that the driver uses it to communicate with passengers he or she is on the way to pick up. For a lot of people, that’s certainly faster than using your wee little thumbs to text.
Also, two phones? This person likes to stay connected. It appears this person is driving in one of the countries with cars on the left side, and we don’t know how the rules are in each of those, but this probably wouldn’t fly in the states.
An Uber Compliment
We all like to be told we're looking good. Or that we smell good. Or that we bake good cookies. Whatever your compliment of choice might be, you probably don't mind have a stranger give you one, as long as it isn't weird.
It will have to be up to you whether the compliment Twitter user “harmonysaccount” received was reasonable. “I like your hat. U got a hat face. U ever heard that?” (That's a direct quote from the tweet, btw). Doesn't seem too bad, honestly. Harmony does note that the day's hat was a cowboy hat. Well, everybody looks good in a cowboy hat.
An Extra Passenger
Drivers for these ride-sharing apps are busy people. Sometimes they have kids and families to take care of as well as being drivers. So, that means sometimes kids get to meet all those who ride their parent's cars. This picture is of one such time.
We're told that the rider was laughing so hard he had to apologize. Why, because there was a kid in the car with him? It's unexpected, sure, but we don't really get why it's funny?
No Other Details Whatsoever
Some people manage to make a connection with their driver, but it usually doesn't go as far as this story. A Twitter user with the name Evan Edinger related a story about a driver saying he loved Evan. Literally, that's the entire tweet: “My uber driver told me he loved me.” Was this a casual thing as Evan was getting out of the car? A way the driver helps other people feel appreciated?
Or was this...the real thing? Did Evan miss a love connection that could have blossomed into something wonderful? Since Evan tweeted about it, we're going to go with no.
Above and Beyond the Call of Duty
There have been plenty of people who have called an Uber or a Lyft to get them to medical attention. Ambulances are pricey, and if it isn't an emergency, people just use their app. That's the story with this guy, but there's more!
Not only did the driver, Beni, take his passenger to the hospital, but he also stuck around to keep the patient company, since the patient's family lives mostly out of state. What a mensch.
