CONFESSIONS OF AN LA LYFT/UBER DRIVER
Observations I've made and stories I've collected driving the people of LA around.
- •I now understand who attends a Colbie Caillait concert.
- •Nobody likes Van Nuys.New Yorkers in particular feel unsafe there and comment on it, without fail.
- •Breakups can happen anywhere, including my backseat.To give you an idea of the level of intensity, the guy asked to be let out early to walk home.
- •I was offered $10,000 to write and produce a song.This guy wanted to do something special for his girl. Oh, and his name was "Wolf" and he worked on "Wall Street." Hmm.... calling your bluff, sir.
- •I was offered to be a private driver.Good ol' "Wolf" again, wanting his girl driven around 4 hours a day. I'm convinced that "Wolf" is just a pimp at this point.
- •I get more reviews for my hair than my driving.I'll take it 💁🏼
- •Sometimes, passengers will need a wingman on the spot. Here I am to the rescue.My passenger (comfortably drunk) was on the phone talking to a girl. He had plans to take her out later that week, and needed date ideas. **SURPRISE YOU'RE A WINGMAN NOW** He handed the phone to me to help him out. The review he left on Lyft indicated my ideas were a success 💪🏼
- •If you make a stop that involves food, passengers will almost always buy you something.What I've received: Jack In The Box tacos, In-N-Out, Wendy's, Pressed Juicery, and a Bud Light
- •People get very honest.I'm like a bartender without the alcohol, or a therapist without the couch.
- •People are not as drunk as I expected.I'm genuinely surprised by this.
- •30+ year old women who manage a bar or restaurant are quick to give me their business cards.I guess a connection with Saddle Ranch could come in handy someday...?
