What would you do?

So I pull up to pickup pax in neighborhood in venice. I park next to driveway. Waiting for pax. Old neighbor walks out taking trash out.

Car comes amd honk . Ask me move from driveway. So I move.

Then old neighbor starts yelling f bombs and calling me names for not moving my car and blocking driveway. Then saying uber drivers are idiots and stuff.

I was ready to get out and take care of him. But didn't want to be in the news. I bit my tongue. Pax came out and we drove away. I told pax your neighbor is a moron and he agreed and Thanked me for not going off on him. No tip. But I regret not doing anything. Punk old trash needs to put in his place.

What would you do? Has this happened to you?

You did the right thing, maybe could of smiled and said something extra nice.

How you doing sir, hope you have a great day.

Words are just words, they only have effect that you let them have. People like that generally are just looking for a reason to complain. The nicer you are the more mad he gets, you drive away and forget about him, and he's fuming for an hour.

Yep, that too! I have been super nice to people who are mad and they get even madder. It's hilarious and makes my day.

He's right. A lot of Uber drivers are idiots.. People who want to "put people in their place" or "take care of them" probably also need to be put in their place or be 'taken care of'.
So by behaving like a civilized human being, you did the right thing. It's troublesome though, that you need to ask how others would handle it.

Why is it troublesome for asking?

Because it makes it appear as though you weren't sure of what to do - act like an animal? Or act like a human? Or you were unsure of the choice you made.
Even if I'm unsure or know, what's the troubling part? Like I said before I am asking. You are reading too much into this.

We deal with "animals" all day.

I would have ignored him and tried not to laugh in his face.

Old folks can be dangerous.

What have they got to lose ?

Put them in prison for life ?
Better than the nursing home.

Be careful of old folks.he may have earned his attitude.

Yeah you're right. Just pisses me off about idiots like this. You know one of these days he won't be so lucky.

I think it made him more mad cuz I was smiling and laughing at him.
He may have worked for a company worse than Uber.

No telling how we will end up !
