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.
The Spookiest Drive Ever
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.
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.
Should Probably Have Some Racing Games
If you aren't the one doing the driving, riding in a car can get pretty boring. If you're a youngin' you can get antsy, too. The solution to these problems, as with many problems in life, is video games. This driver hooked up a little TV and an N64 for riders to pilot Mario around while getting to their destination.
“Mario 64” is a classic game that any self-respecting video game connoisseur should have some time with. We guess you could also read a book, but how often do you get a chance to play N64 in the car?
The Place is Just Crazy
The car that you see in this picture is a McLaren. That's the make, anyway. We aren't sure what the model is. But even some of the cheapest models will go for around two hundred thousand dollars, and here one is being used as an Uber. Of course, this picture was taken in Dubai, which has gained a reputation as a place for big spenders.
Among the tallest buildings in the world and endless gleaming places of business and pleasure, the fanciest cars in the world drive to and fro. Does it cost more if your driver has a fancy car?
