hey YouTube, Luber life here. Anyway, I
got a story from the Labor Day weekend. I had the worst uber ride ever.
I hear war stories all the time. Here’s a shout-out to the person I watch a lot
Uberman out in Oklahoma. Anyway I’ve heard some war stories, and I had one of
my own this weekend. First call of Saturday night, the very first call and
it looks like a good hit. I mean this is 12 miles outside of town, and where this
was I just absolutely knew that it was coming back into town was the trip so I
mean this is we’re talking at the 25-minute ride here. So and the
Geographics around here it’s a mountainous area so to give you a little
history, but no good fare, so I’m thinking alright! this is this night is just gonna
rock! well,,, here’s what happened. I Drive all the way out there and I get there.
It’s this golf course out in the middle of nowhere, a little subdivision out
there. and the I get out there where they drop the pin and it’s right in front of
this little golf cart area. It’s right by a clubhouse. So I get there. I wait a
minute. Okay, he’s had plenty of time while I was driving here to know that I
was close, so I go ahead and I give him a call. I say hey this your Uber driver, are
you, is this the correct place because there’s a couple buildings out here and one golf cart path that I was parked on. He goes oh yeah we’ll be out in
about 10 minutes. I said no no, I need to cancel if
you’re gonna be longer than just a minute or two. I said this is a very busy
weekend. I don’t have time to wait around. I said I will wait a few minutes and he
goes oh don’t cancel don’t cancel we’ll be right out we’re heading to the door
right now… Okay… at that point I knew something was going
to be bad, because you could tell by the way this gentleman was talking that you
couldn’t even hardly understand what he was saying. He was inebriated!!!
completely, completely inebriated. No exaggeration. Anyway, I give that about
another whole five minutes. Nobody shows up. I call the guy again. I’m
canceling if you’re not here right now. Oh, don’t cancel. We’re at the door right
now… Okay, well I give it another three
minutes and I cancel the trip. I’m driving all the way back into town,
and I know not to turn on my app for a while. Let him get somebody else. He’s
already going to be upset with me. He’ll be fine with another driver. Okay,
so I leave the app off for a good eight minutes. Something like that.
Plenty of time. I’m almost back in a town actually. So I thought okay, I’m safe
to turn the app on again. So I turn on the app. Not three seconds later, ping.
Okay, well according to that I’m doing the math, okay that can’t possibly be the
same person. So I accept… I was wrong. It sent me right back out to the same place.
I thought okay, well I’m trying to keep my acceptance rate up, I’m trying
not to have a cancellation rate. Come to find out though the more research I do,
that doesn’t really matter anymore. Uber is changing, but anyway long story
short. I thought okay, I already accepted it. I’ll go out. We’ll try this one more time.
So I drive 10 miles back to the place again. I get there and they are all ready.
There’s three of them. They have their clubs out, ready, the whole nine
yards. Now, this is where things get ugly!! ugly!!
okay we’re loading in the golf clubs. Okay keep in mind if you haven’t noticed…
This is a prius… We’ve got three sets of clubs, and three guys that’s waiting on
this ride… One of the gentlemen I swear to god his
clubs were King Kong’s clubs. I mean I used to golf and this was huge. On his
driver I’m not kidding you there was a you know there your club covers? Okay
this I’m not exaggerating one bit. There was a buffalo head this big with the
horns that came out. I mean this big. Now we’re trying to fit back in that
little area… Wasn’t happening… So he’s getting irritated and he can’t even
talk he is so… Plastered. I mean he’s gone! and can’t even talk.. Passenger yells “Is it in yet”. Then he passes out in the front seat. Okay so at least that’s one problem
down. His buddy in the back seat he was also completely three sheets to the wind…
And he wants to pick a fight with me. He first of all, while we’re loading the
clubs he asked me to hold his beer, and urinated right beside my door here. Now
this is daylight guys daylight. This isn’t at night. Right by the
back passenger door he is… taking a whizz nice.. Okay, so I had to remind him of
Ubers terms and conditions that you cannot have an alcoholic beverage/ open
container in the vehicle at any time. He then, and I’m trying to remain
professional, and he then says in the State of Missouri that you can
do that. I said, you’re right. You can in the state of Missouri if you’re not
the driver you can have an open container in the vehicle. The problem is
with your uber terms and conditions with your
account, It clearly states there that you cannot have an open container in
that vehicle, and I don’t care if you chug it, you throw it away, you dump it,
whatever, but you can’t have an open container my vehicle. You can either do
one of them three or I can cancel the trip and you can get another Uber if you
think they’re going to be less professional. He told me I should just let it go…
No, sorry, I abide by the terms. I mean that can cause me to get my
account terminated along with yours and I need this gig. I need the job. Okay
the third guy he was actually okay. He was trying to be the peacemaker with
everybody. He knows his friends are being… well, we’ll be nice about this and we’ll say
“difficult”. He said no, I get it, I get it, it’s it’s fine. We
finally get everybody in the car, and I’m going to call him drunk guy number two has
crackers… Of course he does… Literally cracker crumbs all over the
floorboard, all over the backseat, and keep in mind this is the first ride of
the night. He wants to argue, drunk off his rear end, and trashes my car.
Completely trashes my car. Horrible ride. good fare. Horrible ride. So
I go ahead and rate him decent, and I immediately report to Uber
everything that had happened from the urination, to the open container, to the
rude attitude wanting to argue with me, and the fact that I’d already canceled
on him once didn’t make anything better. Anyway, I’d like to know
what happened to you guys on the weekend? I’d like to hear some
more stories. I know these things happen. That’s probably the worst trip I’ve had
so far. I’ve had a couple sketchy ones, but it was just passengers wanted to do
things their way, which is fine. They’re paying the fare so they have
carte blanche to it, but I mean my god this was by far the worst trip I’ve ever
had so far driving with uber. I don’t think I have ever before seen anyone
quite that plastered. Speaking of that…A tip for you guys that are driving, I
keep these things everywhere and for instance they’re always within
arm’s reach. Keep these with you but guys I mean this saves you a ton in clean up.
Barf bags if anybody don’t know what they are I’ll
put a link in the description. Get the ones like this. Don’t get the
paper ones, because you will get passengers that are so inebriated that
they can’t figure out the paper sacks. With these, there’s nothing to figure
out about them boom, bah, discard. All there is to it.
I definitely recommend you keep them in your vehicle at all times. That is
going to happen. Not if, but when… it is going to happen. Comment down
below. Tell me what is your worst trip. How did your weekend go? Labor Day
2017 was it good? I know Friday I killed it, Saturday besides that
and having to take all the time away to report that to Uber, cleaning the car, it was a good night. Sunday deader than a doornail. This is the Branson area
Branson, Missouri. It was dead up until Sunday night, and I killed it again. Anyway, let me know how it was? How did you guys do?
