Scheduled my Uber as per usual to get to work this morning. Told the driver what route to take. 1 main right turn, 1 main left turn. He grunted but acknowledged my request. Despite this he went in a different direction. Asked him politely why he was taking a different route. He quickly became highly agitated and almost began to have a melt down. He told me i should have told him. He told me if i argued with him he would stop the car and i would have to get out. I reminded that i had made my request at the start of the journey. He said he was following google maps. I asked him why he takes directions if hes going to follow the map. He became more agitated and said i had to get out of the car. He pulled over and told me to get out. I refused. he said he would get me out. I warned him not to touch me. Because i could see how irrational his behavior was i told him he had better call the police if he wanted me out. He called the police. They refused to come out. He called uber emergency and gave them my description. I was extremely distressed. I am new to the area. i was about three minutes drive from work. He remained parked with me in his car for about 15 minutes. Eventually i was able to call Uber to put in a complaint. Uber were very understanding and refunded my fair. They asked if i had reported him to the police. I told them i would. Women be careful. This could have happened to me at night on my way home from work. This driver is easily agitated and has serious issues. I have never experienced anything like it in my life. I have felt traumatized by it. Please make sure you ride safely and be careful of sending children alone. There are a lot of crazies out there with more issues than we can imagine.
