Uncomfortable Uber Passenger Situations and How to Handle Them Like a Pro

Uncomfortable Uber Passenger Situations and How to Handle Them Like a Pro

There’s no denying that Uber and Lyft are great ways to make a little extra cash. With help from Ridester, you can maximize your earnings, but ridesharing is about a lot more than giving someone a ride.

You can’t forget that every transaction includes a rider. And that rider could be anyone.

As you rake in the dough, you can also be sure that you’ll rake in stories of passengers from all walks of life behaving in ways you never would have imagined had you not seen it with your own eyes.

Here are a few of the most common Uber passengers that you’ll have to deal with, and what you can do to make the best of the situation.

The Drunko

There are a lot of crazy passengers out there, but driving the drunko is a rite of passage for the Uber or Lyft driver. Sure, you can reduce your chances of dealing with the drunko, but you can bet you’ll have at least one no matter when and where you drive.

The drunko can come in many different varieties (pass-out drunk, chatty drunk, a little too friendly drunk), but they all have one thing in common—they all need a barf bag. Don’t be afraid to hand them one when they enter your car.

The Passionate Couple

Cupid is alive and well. Without going into too much detail, we’re talking about the couple that just can’t seem to keep their hands off each other.

Well, you probably aren’t going to break them up. The best thing to do is to keep your mouth shut and get to their destination as quickly as possible. If you’re feeling cheeky, turn up the radio, or keep a little Barry White on hand just in case.

The Entitled Rider

Didn’t realize you were a servant for the upper class? The entitled rider won’t be afraid to remind you.

Why not have a bit of fun. Ever see that episode of Parks and Rec where April meets her doppelganger from the other parks department? If you’re a driver dealing with a Tynnyfer, April is your new spirit animal.

The Completely Unresponsive Passenger

Ever have that guy who acts like you don’t exist? Or the girl who is too busy looking at her cell phone? If you haven’t yet, you will.

There’s an art to having a conversation with your passengers. Some people just don’t like art.

No matter what their reason for assuming they’re in a self-driving car and there isn’t anyone behind the wheel, it’s better to let them be. Just keep your fingers crossed that you don’t get the unresponsive drunko. That’s the holy grail of bad passengers!

Don’t let your passengers get you down. You’re going to have bad ones just like you’re going to have good ones. The trick is to know when to have a little fun and when to let things go. With the right attitude, you could become the coolest driver in your area!
