Of all the incredible inventions that the 21st century has brought us, ride-sharing services have to be up there as one of the best. I mean, I really enjoy having a tiny computer that I can fit in my pocket...
But mostly because I can use it to summon an Uber or a Lyft in a matter of seconds.
I've always been horrible with directions. True story: I once got lost when biking to my friend's house. She lived on the same street as me. Exactly one block away. So when it comes to driving, I'm usually pretty anxious if I'm going to a place I've never been before. Living in LA has only made this worse, as everyone here drives as though their hands and feet are constantly on fire.
So yeah, Uber and Lyft drivers are my heroes. They deal with the directions and traffic so I don't have to.
In my many ride-sharing experiences, I've seen so many drivers who deserve a 5-star rating.However, some Uber and Lyft drivers really go above and beyond. Like, they deserve a 6-star rating, and that doesn't even exist. Here are a few of them!
This driver has an NES controller hooked up for his riders to play!
This driver let his grandkids decorate his car for Halloween.
This guy has all the snacks.
This one offers a full menu!
More snacks, you say?Apparently, there are a lot of ride-sharing drivers who stock up on snacks before picking up riders. What a great world we're living in, huh?
