Jokes about Apple Maps aside, we can’t explain how this happened. Dinesh has a 4.8-star rating on the app, which makes it seem like he knows what he’s doing. We all get lost every once in a while, but this driver has really taken it to the next level.
We hope for Dinesh’s sake that he has one of those cars that can turn into a submarine, like in a James Bond movie. Otherwise, the rider might need to wait quite a while to get picked up. Dinesh saying “am lost” is a little bit of an understatement.
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?
At Least it Was Cheap
Uber and Lyft have done a lot of good getting people home safely after a night of carousing. Of course, when you're drunk, you don't tend to make the best decisions, which is how we got the map that this person showed off.
Having someone take you straight home feels pretty good if you're in an inebriated state, but we have to admit just walking around the corner might have been the better choice here. The detailed map that Uber sends afterward is the icing on the cake, but at least the price wasn't that bad.
*Need to Charge Something? Anything?
Drivers for ride-sharing services are always trying to one-up each other when it comes to the passenger experience. This driver, for instance, not only has pain killers, snacks, hand lotion, and sanitizer but charging cords. Lots of charging cords.
It really doesn't matter what you need power for: any of your phones, maybe your laptop, your iPod. We think that you could charge things like a blackberry or your electric razor. This driver, at the least, is dedicated to making sure everybody who rides is comfortable.
