Uber has completely changed the game when it comes to getting a ride. What I wouldn’t have given for Uber in my area 10 years ago. One of my favorite aspects of it is the rating system, which lets drivers and passengers rate one another out of 5 stars.
Drivers come up with all sorts of ways to get a better rating, from offering waters and sodas to letting passengers choose the music. One Uber driver has decided to go the extra mile and came up with a genius way to put his passengers in control of their ride experience. This was first brought to the world’s attention via Twitter user @LuisLovesGoats.
The options include: Stand Up, Silent Ride, Therapy Ride, Creepy Ride, and (surprisingly) Rude Ride.
Since Lui was feeling a little down that day, he chose the “Therapy Ride.” It wasn’t long before Lui’s tweets went viral.
Naturally, people absolutely loved it.
Sadly, Lui only had the driver’s first name (George) to go off of, and he had some difficulty getting in touch with him to let him know he’d gone viral. But, the internet being what it is, people eventually tracked him down.
George even got on Twitter himself to thank everyone.
Thanks to the exposure, George now has thousands of new followers, and he shared a clearer shot of his menu for people to enjoy:
He also added how humbling and enjoyable this entire experience has been.
If you’d like to show some love to George, you can hit up the GoFundMe he started to get an automatic car, since Seattle’s hilly terrain can be pretty rough on his transmission.
