Awkward Pickup from Planned Parenthood

Picked up a young college girl from planned parenthood today.

Short ride. Maybe 10 minutes (2 miles)

She was on the phone with one of her girlfriends.

Basically, I eavesdropped on the entire conversation.

Something about yeast infection, good bacteria, Pap smears, and her current relationship. Very awkward because I’m not normally exposed to this stuff.

She then explained how she can do better than the guy she’s seeing and that he needs more self confidence in himself. Safe to say she had a big ego and big problems.

Dropped her off and found myself temporarily scared of the opposite sex.

The Real MVP

The real MVP goes to the recent passenger who hooked me up with spray on hand sanitizer. Actually, it may have been alcohol.

Either way, she was rambling on about how “safe” she was and boating about how she applies alcohol and sanitizer to her hands (and gloves) multiple times during the day. I told her I do the same, but the alcohol I have really drys out my hands.

Out of the kindness of her heart, she gifted me a bottle of spray on sanitizer. It had a mix with glycerin to make your hands feel soft (or something like that). She says she was a housekeeper and makes it herself.

Shout out to this lady helping me out.

*as a side note, Sushi (my car’s name) showed me he has an advanced safety braking system. While on the 101 I was stuck in stop and go traffic and found myself in a situation where I was going to fast to stop. I had a 100% chance of rear ending the vehicle in front of me. I slammed on my brakes as hard as I could but it wasn’t enough…however Sushi’s safety’s brakes kicked in and stopped the hell out of my car. I somehow escaped financial ruin thanks to an automated system.

Maybe that’s why this lady gifted me the sanitizer. She still the MVP for that.

Crazy Rideshare Stories

I want to tell you about the crazy stories I’ve gone through while driving for Lyft and Uber.

The stay at home order has me driving more in order to cover my bills and to pay for all of the non-sense items I buy.

I started driving back in December and usually part time on the weekends. I’m not full time, but holy crap have I been in the wildest situations I’d never thought if be in.

I’m mainly drive around Los Angeles, so all the experiences you will soon read are from this area.

Here’s a list of some from the top of my head:

Passenger at 5am jumps out of bushes and does a full wardrobe in the backseat while heading to work.

Lady applies 3 large squirts of hand sanitizer within a 1 mile trip. Jumped out the car so fast when I stopped.

Chick doesn’t want me to drop her off at her pinned location. I follow her directions and go into circles before asking her to get out. She doesn’t.

Polo Gee falls asleep in my car and I couldn’t wake him up. Dropped him off half awake in the middle of the night.

Teenage moms kid kept asking if I was her daddy.

Wore the wrong colors and picked up someone at a liquor store. I was confronted and had to bribe my way out of the situation.

Dropped off a dog 30 minutes away to a grooming establishment. He kept licking my elbow.

Since I get multiple crazies every time I’ll drive, I’ll try to post my stories as many as possible.

Years from now, I may regret this 👀
