Drunk couple asks if they can have sex in the back seat

Drunk couple asks if they can have sex in the back seat

I picked up a drunk couple in hollywood, who at first let me know to just start driving east. About 3 min. later, the bold amped up gal in the back seat asked me point blank if I would grant them permission to F**k in my car. This was not told in jest. They were serious. I told them no, considering the same car will be used the next morning to drive my four and half year old daughter to pre-school. I just can’t have that kind of energy, karma or undiscovered accidents left over the next day. . Read More >>

Doggie Rideshare Racists

Doggie Rideshare Racists

The animal rideshare policy is this: When a Rideshare driver is called and the passenger has a canine or feline companion, it is up to the driver to accept or refuse the ride.  I, for one, am a 100% dog, cat and pet friendly Uber Driver. Hell, if you had a poisonous cobra I’d let you in my car.  At least it would take away the boredom I may be feeling after driving for five straight hours. The bottom line is I will never turn down a pet as a passenger. If you are a Rideshare driver, and turn down animals, I see you along the same lines as someone who turns down rides based on color of skin or sexual orientation. In other words, you are simply what I call a “doggie rideshare racist.”...Read More >>

Worst Passenger Body Odor of all Time

Worst Passenger Body Odor of all Time

The prize for the ride share passenger Body Odor Award of 2014 goes to a Venice couple I picked up heading to a liquor store. The couple, at first sight, appeared normal, average and did not give off any hint of Boardwalk Wanderers. They looked tired but not abnormal. They slipped into the back seat and went over the coordinates of a near by liquor store. As soon as I hit the gas my nose picked up a garbage like scent mixed with body odor that smelled like a Tijuana out of order bathroom. Read More >>

Aimless Drunk Breaks Down and Cries over Ex Girlfriend

Aimless Drunk Breaks Down and Cries over Ex Girlfriend

I picked up a late 20 something in the Hollywood area. At first, he had no intention of going anywhere. He leaped into my back seat and told me to drive around for a bit. He explained he was not sure “what he’s doing or where he is going.” He started punching digits into his phone and reached a girl that he was trying to meet. The conversation first had some cheesy innuendos of a hook up but then it turned sour. It was clear that the gal on the other end of the line did not want to see him. This pissed him off and an argument broke out over the cell and he hung up on her. He apologized for the drunk dial and told me to keep driving around Hollywood and that he will soon figure out where he wants to go. This lasted for about ten minutes as I continued to drive the aimless drunk around.  Read More >>

Picking Up A 500 Pound Man

Picking Up A 500 Pound Man

I read somewhere that extremely obese people are more looked down upon in society then drug addicts, alcoholics and criminals. When I walk by someone who is morbidly obese I feel their inner loneliness. Its must suck which leads me to my next UberMan blog. I picked up a very large man who elected to sit in the front.  He must have been at least 500 LBS as part of his left side spilled over onto the middle console. Here is where it got really awkward. The seat belt beeping sound was going off for about five minutes as he was unable to get the belt to connect and click. He was just too big. I did not know if I should help him, laugh, stop the car, just ignore or turn up the music to mask the beeping sound. Read More >>
