I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t always been the best Uber passenger when I’m drunk – I’m not aggressive or anything, but there have been times where I stuck my head out the window and barfed while we were doing 75 on the highway. I’m not proud of the first, second, hell, even the sixth time that happened, but each time I was met with an “Are you okay?” instead of a “Get the fuck out of my car” – that usually comes after we reach my destination, thankfully. But one taxi driver was NOT having it, as he went and dumped his unconscious passenger out on the street and drove away.
I’m gonna give that driver the benefit of the doubt and assume that it’s 6:00 a.m. of him coming off the night shift, not starting the day shift – in which case, fuck that passenger. Taxi man is making diddly squat after taxes and has to drive at all hours of the day to support twelve kids and a mother-in-law who crushes his balls every chance she gets, whereas this drunk fuck probably just blew $200+ on drinks at the club and didn’t have the sense to go home at a normal time.
At the same time, should he really have left the dude lying in the street? No – he should’ve put him on the sidewalk. Dude could get seriously injured chillin’ unconscious in the middle of the road, but at some point we have to call personal accountability into question here; the guy’s an adult. If you’re an adult and you can’t waking up to make it into your own bed, maybe the street the best place for you after all.
