So on my first night working for Uber I was fully expecting to experience something wild and the night did not disappoint.

Seconds after I accepted my 8th ping of the night, the phone rings and the customer says, "Are you my Uber driver? My last one cancelled where are you, are you close?" I immediately knew I was in for a wild ride and was extremely tempted to cancel immediately but I figured what the hell you only live once.

30 seconds into the call, the drunk girl on the other end is already asking if she can smoke in the car and talking about her bag of blow. Again I said to myself, hang up and cancel, but I just replied and said I'm sorry but you can't smoke in the car, and I pretended to not hear her talking about cocaine. She asks me if I will wait for her to smoke and in the same breath says can you hurry I am going to be late.

I get to her location and end up waiting probably 7 minutes if not closer to 10 for her to finally get to the car. She gets in the front seat and grabs my thermostat and puts it on heat saying she is freezing and drunk and high. Then she turns my interior light on and starts to rummage through her purse, "Look another bag of blow!" she exclaims. I don't know why I didn't pull over right then and there and kick her out of the car, but I wish I had.

She takes a phone call and is telling the person on the other end that she is going to be late because I am driving slow, meanwhile we are stuck in traffic. She then reaches for my radio and changes the station and puts the volume all the way up, turns the interior light back on and starts putting make up on, all the while still asking every 5 minutes if she can smoke in the car. She starts looking at her phone and says, "Oh it's your first week, don't worry I'll give you 5 stars."

Then as we are getting pretty close to the destination but are stuck in absolute gridlock she starts video chatting with a guy telling him how she wants him to have sex with her (not in those words though) and saying do you like seeing that? Out of the corner of my eye (shes in the front seat remember, interior light is on again) she has her shoes off, right foot up on the passenger window, left foot on the seat and her legs spread camera in between.

Oh I almost forgot, not too long into the trip she asked for an iphone charger and I said I'm sorry I only have an android charger. Just before she started her xrated video chat she says here I have an iphone charger let me charge my phone, you should have let me plug it in earlier and my phone would be charged by now.

I realize this probably isn't the worst thing that could happen to someone, but geez she was obnoxious. I submitted a comment to Uber about her describing everything that happened, and in the copy/paste reply that I got from Uber they promised not to match me with her again.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Well,at least she retained most of her bodily fluids while in your car,and did not physically assault you. 1 star each for those two.
Any argument with the guy on the phone,and she would have immediately took it out on you . . .
Because . . . you were there.
Drunk pill heads are even worse.
Nasty little animals.

Once you wait 5 mins cancel and move on. Pull your dash cam footage just in case.

You should realize that, as an Uber driver, you have no protection from arrest and having your vehicle impounded if there are drugs in the car. At least not in this state. The same with open alcohol containers. Here in Florida if it's within arm's reach of the driver, you're screwed. Sure, most cops would be cool about how they handled it, but there's always that one, right?

Taking someone who has announced and then demonstrated they have drugs in the car is totally nuts.

I hope that essay to uber you wrote to uber made you feel better because odds are support read that and laughed at why you didn't cancel anytime during that trip.

Why on earth would you even pickup that drama? The most I would have done is driven by as I cancelled for entertainment (if it was slow...)

Don't worry you'll get several more of those working nights. I mostly cancel, but sometimes I pick up the ride for some entertainment

Lol, not buying it..
My 4.96 rating showed up as 5* in the passenger app for 8 months., means nothing.
He probably told her.

I told my passengers my first week.

but I only had 3 rides. I was new, excited, pumped, excited, hyped up, aroused, excited about driving for uber, but that went away soon.
