Ride hailing has come a long way in the last several years. Rather than ordering a taxi and waiting for ages, or hailing one down in the rain, you can use a number of apps to hail a clean, safe, comfortable, friendly ride to your doorstep with just a few taps of your smartphone. Late for work? Grab a Lyft. Walk of shame? Order an Uber. In more of a money crunch than a time crunch? Order a shared ride, like Lyftline or UberPOOL. Chat your driver up, or mind your own business, but remember that your driver not only has eyes and ears… But a mouth too.
While a lot of nice people use these services to go to the airport, work, or class, but not everyone is as nice. These are the private tales of your overworked, underpaid, and definitely underappreciated rideshare driver.
