Ok...those following my posts...all one of you...

Will just LOVE this post...

As most of you know...all one of you...

I have been talking about my great vehicle that keeps the doors locked...

Until I put it in park to let the pax in...

Last night I rolled up after my last trip...for the bar scene at least...
To a good spot to wait for a good trip...

From St Pete to Tampa airport on my way back to my house...up north...

Sitting there with vehicle idling...lights off and parked...but ready to roll...

Seat slightly kicked back...ahh restful...

Enjoying the last of the cool nights...

My eyes opened when I sensed something not quite right...

Looked to my right and in my passengers seat staring right at me...

Was a quiet guy looking like Indian...

And grinning ear to ear...

First thought...howd he get in...

Second thought...did I accept a ride...

Third thought...what IS this person doing in my SUV...

REACTION: politely asked him if he was trying to get a ride...he responded yes...

Told him I cant take ppl from the street...asked him if he had a phone...

And if he needed a ride he would need to request one in the Uber app...

All while he is smiling and trying to touch my hand...

Was trying to figure out how he got in my SUV...duh...in park locks opened...

Told him in no uncertain terms that he needed to exit my vehicle immediately..

He did get out and all ended peacefully..

Afterwards...manually locked my doors...to prevent it happening again...

Note to self...

ALWAYS KEEP DOORS LOCKED WHEN PARKED ON STREET!

All ended well but could have been different...8)

Oh my I just realized how my post could be taken taken the wrong way so I deleted it. I was thinking about something you wrote recently about not smelling.

WOW! My doors lock automatically. Sometimes I have to re-unlock them if I have to wait a few minutes for my rider.

Had a highly paranoid rider one night. He (and wife) redirected GPS and me (longer trip) BECAUSE he genuinely thought we would be carjacked at certain intersections.

This would be a good time to point out that many cars have options on how the doors auto-lock/unlock. Check your owners manual (ya know that book nobody reads?). I had to change my settings to do Uber because the damn car would have kept locking people inside.
