What is your criteria for a five-star ride?
For me, it is either ultimate silence accompanied by good tunes, or spirited and organic conversation.
But as a driver, how do you know what your rider actually wants?
One driver answered this murky question by creating a personalized menu for his customers to choose what kind of ride they would want.
Twitter user @LuisLovesGoats was lucky to ride with the creative driver and shared with experience along with the menu via Twitter.
“last night my uber gave me a menu on what kind of ride I wanted.” Luis posted.
The menu reads:
George: The Uber Driver…
Ride Type Menu
The Stand Up:
I tell you about things that are funny (to me at least). From prison stories to other poor life choices I’ve made. Don’t get a lovers name tattooed on you. Ever.
The Silent Ride:
The Therapy Ride:
Got something on your mind? Let me help take it off. Talk to me.
The Creepy Ride:
I don’t say anything. I just look at you from time to time in the rearview mirror. All creepy like.
The Rude Ride:
I be as rude as possible.
At the bottom of the menu, a disclaimer appears, saying:
“Safety comes before anything. Please: Wear your seat belt. I have chargers for every type of phone if you need one. Thanks for riding with me.”
And as Luis was not feeling like himself, he shared with Twitter how he decided to pick the “therapy ride” to have a shoulder to lean on, saying:
“well I’m depressed sooooo i chose the therapy ride lmao” Luis said.
The tweet quickly went viral — and as to be expected, because therapy is no cheap commodity these days.
And with just the drivers first name — which is George, Lui attempted to get in touch with his pseudo therapist to tell him how much the internet adored him.
“i’ve been trying to message George about this so he’s aware of all the love he is getting but Uber doesn’t have that option.” Luis shared.
But thankfully, the news made it to George through a friend.
And the story inspired George to create his own Twitter account.
“GUYS THIS IS GEORGE !!! HE SAW THE POST ONLINE AND MADE A TWITTER. HE DESERVES ALL THE LOVE <3 <3 <3” Luis posted.
George currently has over 4,000 Twitter followers, posting a shout-out to a few folks that made his journey possible.
“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.” George later posted.
The driver recently shared a GoFundMe in hopes of purchasing an automatic car as Seattle’s hills have been rough on his transmission.
Currently, his goal is $15,000 with quite a ways to go.
