Getting into your driver’s car might be a gamble sometimes. Often it’s just a simple car that takes you from place to place, and a lot of times that’s all you need. Then there are the people that go above and beyond, like this guy.
With a travel bag full of supplies, passengers are able to get bandages, tums, ibuprofen, flossing sticks, or even lint rollers, along with plenty of other handy supplies. As the sign at the top of the bag says, this is an easy way to earn a five-star rating for any driver, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the kind of thing that starts to happen more often.
It Finally Got to See the World
When a woman loses her purse on New Year's Eve, that's usually that. She knows she should get a new purse. Thankfully, this woman left her purse in an Uber, and the driver was kind enough to return it – phone and contents intact and undisturbed.
Except for all the pictures that had been added. It seems the phone had taken a trip to see the sights. It visited friends, had some fun at the park, hit the climbing wall, and even visited a scenic lookout. It almost seems like the purse had a better day without its owner.
Play Whatever You Want
Most drivers from ride-sharing apps have a few rules. One of them is, commonly, don't fiddle with the radio too much. One kind driver named Seth, however, is deaf, which means that passengers could play or say whatever they want without fear of reprimand or judgment.
Some people might be hesitant to get into a car with a deaf driver, but some tech has come out recently that allows those who are hard-of-hearing to be just as safe as anyone else when they get behind the wheel. Have no fear, and crank up the tunes. Just like at home.
Look For the Bubbles
When one Ryan Eccles ordered an Uber, his driver decided to do something to make him and his car stand out. The message he sent to Ryan was “I'm out front, look for the bubbles.” While Ryan didn't know what this meant at first, it became pretty obvious, pretty quickly.
When he stepped outside, he saw a car that had a driver blowing bubbles out the driver-side window. In crowded urban areas, picking out your driver among the other drivers, or just the parked cars, wastes precious seconds, so kudos to this driver for finding a fun way to stand out.
A number of Uber or Lyft drivers will bring their dogs along for the ride to save on pet-sitting or keep the dogs from getting lonely. There are also a few, apparently, that will bring their birds, too. Including one driver that has a little...canary, we think...that looks just like Jack Nicholson.
We aren't exactly going to call the resemblance uncanny, but that's still a pretty fun addition to a ride. It's the kind of thing that you tell all your friends about the next time you get to talk to them.
