We’re sure that drivers getting dressed up for Halloween is more normal than it seems, but it’s still a ton of fun to see it in action. One driver chose the character of Jack Skellington, and we wonder if the outfit would work for Christmastime, too.
The details and elements of the costume are wonderfully on-point, with a skeletal hand, a skull that has a fabric-like appearance to mimic the movie, and a full set of clothes that are pinstriped from head to toe. It’s the little things that make a ride exciting, but this person went all out.
An Unforgettable Experience
Most of the time when you order a car off of a ride-sharing service, you're going to get a Honda Civic or a Toyota Camry or something like that. And you're going to get somebody in your everyday shirt and jeans, and that's going to be just fine, as long as they get you where you're going.
But one guy decided to step it up, arriving in a handsome wood-paneled station wagon that looks right out of the eighties. He dressed the part, too, with a dashing trilby, a sport coat, and a sick tie. He knows what he's all about – he's all about looking good.
A Little Bit of Halloween Ambiance
We all expect a few decorations once we hit October, but not when we get into a stranger's car that we ordered off the internet. Man, that's a weird sentence. Anyway, the picture here is of an Uber that was driven by a grandparent that let their grandchild do the decorating.
There's no way that could possibly end up poorly, and it certainly didn't. There are some orange string lights hung up in the windows, and a spooky lantern hanging from the handle. It's purple, which everyone knows is the evilest of colors.
Getting Away With It
When schlepping people to an airport, taxis have more space to unload since that's how most people get there. Since the arrival of ride-sharing, however, their special taxi zones have started to get crowded, and drivers can get tickets if they aren't careful.
One way to avoid it is to be a relative, which is what someone named Nick Bilton said his driver pretended to be, giving Nick a hug and telling him “I love you” in order to keep costs down. Why they allow relatives in the taxi zone but not ride-sharing is beyond us.
That Just About Covers It
One of the grand things about ride-sharing is that it's the kind of thing everybody can use at one point or another. A sign that showed up in one driver's car basically laid out who was allowed to ride with them, and it turned out to be everybody.
We can't really find a loophole, except for maybe zombies. The one caveat is that you're welcome...as long as you don't throw up. It's happened to all of us, and it's a pain getting those kinds of stains – and that kind of smell – out of a vehicle.
