Ghost passenger

Last night, I got a ping to a nice street lined up with historic houses. I stop and wait, two & half minutes later I call, and they hang up. Ok, this is gonna be a no show, so I wait aanother two and a half minutes, and then collect $5.
I drive a block or so away and wait for another ping. Two minutes later I get a ping to the same location, same name (T-sigh). I drive up, and wait and nobody’s coming. I lock my doors. I look at the house and it’s dark inside, but I notice a curtain moving in one of the windows. I call them again, and they hang up again. Ok.... hmm.
So I wait another two and a half minutes and after that press no show, again, and collect another $5. I drive away, now hoping this is not going to repeat.
To my relief I get someone else. I’m totally creeped out.

Did you hear any voices while waiting?
Probably none of those. The person just wasn't ready yet. Who knows why they ordered the ride when they weren't ready.

I once had a passenger who ordered the ride and I collected the fee. They ordered one again and the only reason why I accepted it was because I was on a consecutive trip bonus. Another 5 minutes pass and they aren't out. They request a ride a 3rd time and I say forget the bonus, I'm not accepting it again. I probably should have accepted it because $1 a minute isn't bad.
