One of the greatest things that hit us as Ghanaian youth is Uber.
We got all excited about the app and then we found out that not only could we get a cozy comfortable ride at a relatively cheaper price, but we get to rate the drive and the driver. Now if that’s not taking charge then I don’t know what is.
Now we all must have encountered a couple of ,well strange Uber drivers and some were just not understandable.
The Mute Driver
As if getting into a stranger’s car is not awkward enough. This Uber driver makes it a gracious point for you to literally hear yourself breath. He laughs and speaks of nothing. Not even your destination .. No emotions whatsoever
The Driver Who Pretends To Care, Just For The Ratings
This man will ask you if the temperature is wonderful, if you had a nice day and will even go to the extent of asking if you want gum..You can just tell that he does it for the ratings.
The Very Talkative Ones
You know these ones are talkative when you immediately sit in the car and they start to talk about everything and I mean every little thing.
The Ones Who Hit On You
These drivers are unbelievable. They will hit on everything that moves. They suddenly become the leading role in a cliche romantic movie
The Ones Who Spoil Your Entire Day
The advocate of the devil will probably agree with ME on this. These ones, you just can’t understand if it’s the map they don’t understand, the road they can’t see or they just find pleasure in getting you lost or wasting your time. It’s just incomprehensible.
And oh did I forget to mention……………………
The Fine Ones
The ever charming one that you are low key walking down the aisle with in your fantasy, but then you know it’s a sit and bye bye ting innit. Although there’s a silent prayer he will ask if he can save your number and text you later. snap out of it girl.
If you have met others we haven’t captured, kindly let us know!
Until then, enjoy your next Uber ride and observe your driver critically. You might have a fun story to share.
