I been doing Uber for only a month now, and last night I got Stabe, not by a passenger. But by 5 or 6 gang member fallowing then to my car for ther ride. It was around 2:15 am and I got a uberx to pick up at a club in bellflower . So I had taken it and got to the club back parking lot in front of a bar. I Tex the pick up (I'm here) they came in a hurry two guys and two girls. I started the ride then opened the door for the people. The gang members then started yelling at the passengers and would not let me in my car, asking me for $5. I told them no and to get away from my car. Then the two male passenger got out of the car and told them to back off. The jumped them and started to fight with them. Then some of the guys from the bar came and stopped it. My rides came back in to car and then the gang members started on me to back off and so I did not want problem and told them just to leave. Then one of the gang members came from behind me and I felt a punch to my lower Back. So then I confronted them ( all of them ) but I back off because a had seen one of them with a knife. So the guys from the bar go in to it again with them. And my rider told me lets go. So I got int the car and then the gang members Stabe one of the guys and got into a grey Toyota RAV4 . I got out of there across the street and then I want to go back and check on the guy that got staved, but the riders wanted to go home. So I drove off one couple at one location, then the second couple at there original destination. When we got there and I got out to open door for then my set was covered in blood. I ask the couple to look at my lower back and they told me I got stabbed. Then they won't home and I called the police. Was in Long Beach Memorial Hospital until 6:30am. I Tex uber Partners and told them what up. I'm out for ten days now.

Learn how to spell? Seriously....

So this club has no security?

Strange....

I am pretty sure if you get stabbed or staved you would feel it.
*edit*_ i stand corrected i guess sometimes you don't....you guys can stop quoting me now thank you!

I'm sorry it happened though.

This is an issue with the crappier clubs in certain areas who:

1. Don't address the idiots at the door.
2. Don't have enough security.
3. Don't have properly trained security.

The proper way to handle that if they failed to keep the knuckleheads from making it past the door is to bounce the aggressors out the door first and make sure they get the heck off the property and not just out in the parking lot where they can lurk and wait. After that if the second party wants to go you escort them to their vehicles or to the cab.

Since you know that club has crap security I'd steer clear of it completely. They allowed that situation to get WAY beyond out of control. Consult a lawyer and I hope you got those pax names. They may want to add it to the lawsuit. Your dash camera footage will be VITAL to this. You DO have a dash camera, right? The biggest mistake you made was getting out of the car. You're picking up strangers for money you DON'T leave your protective metal shell and you don't unlock the doors until you confirm those are the people who requested you. If you hadn't stepped out no one could have prevented you from getting back in and no one could stab you. You injected yourself into someone else's violent altercation and you came unarmed. I'd suggest not driving at all any more really.

In the heat of the moment you can mistake a stab for a punch and not notice until someone points out that you're bleeding all over the place.

I don't understand Why I should not drive any more. I was just falling Uber instructions on there training vedio. Which state that you should open door for riders. And still about the spelling, once again I was writing quickly and still under stress. I was just try it get it out there for other drivers. From nobody else get hurt.

Are you using Google translate? It's more then spelling alone.

His spelling & sentence structure is off cause of the painkillers. Hospital rooms get boring fast hence forum posting.

Get a conceal carry & stay out of the hood. ALWAYS.
