Uber Driver Gives Passenger Hilarious Menu Of Ride Options
*Gets in Uber* My brain – don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it – Me – ‘Busy night?’
It’s a twist on the memed version, but honesty is the best policy, and for someone who makes words for the internet, my small talk is incredibly crap.
Perhaps I need to take a trip to Seattle, Washington, US, where it appears Uber drivers have a little more compassion for their passengers, as one chap on Twitter proved after going viral about a recent five star trip.
Luis Arguijo, 21, took a ride on Monday night (February 25), and shared the story of the ‘best ride [he’s] ever had’ with creative cabbie George Ure, 38.
Two weeks ago, George printed off ‘ride type’ menus to give to his passengers, to make them feel more comfortable and ‘to make people laugh’.
He told Forbes:
Plus I want to give good service and if someone’s not up for talking, I just want to give them the option.
And what options he’s come up with. George’s customers can choose from The Stand Up, The Therapy Ride, The Creepy Ride, The Rude Ride and The Silent Ride.
When news first broke of George’s custom rides, he’d handed out 20 menus, and Luis’s tweet had already received over 380,000 likes.
At the time of writing (Thursday, Febrary 28), the original tweet is now sitting on over half a million likes and has been picked up by news outlets around the world.
He’s the best Uber my friends and I have ever had. We chose the ‘Therapy Ride’ and from the start of our ride he was a really good listener and understanding.
We could tell he was a genuine guy. I’m glad he’s received all this love, he deserves it.
George has now joined Twitter since the tweet went viral.
He’s responded to the overwhelming response to Luis’s original post.
I’m so happy that my menu is making so many people laugh. It is humbling and exciting to see this all over the Internet.
Special thanks to @LuisLovesGoats for posting, @mccurly911 for letting me know this went viral, and @Uber for the awesome employment.
Internet fame, however, is no biggie for George. In fact, he’s using the attention gained to help a fellow Uber driver achieve their own dreams.
I guess I’m internet famous. I don’t really care. But let’s help my Uber driver and family man become a pharmacist here in the best county on earth! Yes. I drink and when I do I use Uber!
Take a bow George, you’re a legend among men.
