We all like to be told we’re looking good. Or that we smell good. Or that we bake good cookies. Whatever your compliment of choice might be, you probably don’t mind have a stranger give you one, as long as it isn’t weird.
It will have to be up to you whether the compliment Twitter user “harmonysaccount” received was reasonable. “I like your hat. U got a hat face. U ever heard that?” (That’s a direct quote from the tweet, btw). Doesn’t seem too bad, honestly. Harmony does note that the day’s hat was a cowboy hat. Well, everybody looks good in a cowboy hat.
It's a Cousin to “Hold My Beer”
Now, why would a picture of a smashed-up car make it onto this list of crazy ride-sharing stories? See if you can put the pieces together. If you can, you're probably smarter than the driver of this car.
According to the story we found, the driver turned to the passenger, said “Watch this,” and then started putting the car into a drift. He immediately crashed into a post. If you're going to say “watch this,” make sure you know what you're doing, or your passenger might be walking home through two miles of freezing rain, giving you a one-star rating.
We Hope Everyone Survived
Getting into someone else's car is always a little interesting. How fast do they take corners? Are they extra careful or do they go as soon as they can? Do they understand what a yield sign means? All good questions.
Twitter user Tyler Coates's driver actually asked that last question, apparently unaware of what the simple yellow signs mean. Has anybody heard from Tyler Coates recently? Is he okay? Maybe just go for a walk next time. Five miles won't take you that long, and it's healthier than getting into a car accident, at least.
An Extra Passenger
Drivers for these ride-sharing apps are busy people. Sometimes they have kids and families to take care of as well as being drivers. So, that means sometimes kids get to meet all those who ride their parent's cars. This picture is of one such time.
We're told that the rider was laughing so hard he had to apologize. Why, because there was a kid in the car with him? It's unexpected, sure, but we don't really get why it's funny?
Maybe He Learned How to Drive on the Computer
If pressed, we really couldn't tell you why this person has a computer keyboard strung up on their steering wheel. Our best guess is that the driver uses it to communicate with passengers he or she is on the way to pick up. For a lot of people, that's certainly faster than using your wee little thumbs to text.
Also, two phones? This person likes to stay connected. It appears this person is driving in one of the countries with cars on the left side, and we don't know how the rules are in each of those, but this probably wouldn't fly in the states.
