The Uber Passenger That Broke A Driver’s Heart

She was ‘going abroad.’

Uber is a godsend for those of us who have had one drink too many and can’t drive home. But, for Uber drivers, drunk passengers can lead to a disgusting night spent mopping up vomit in their back seats. But a recent story posted by Imgur user nothingherenothingthere shows that for at least one driver, a passenger he feared was a typical drunk became someone he’d never forget.


One Wednesday evening, an Uber driver known online as westport76 picked up what he described as a “sweet girl” who was “absolutely hammered.” The girl was overly apologetic for being so drunk and asked the driver if he’d please drive her around a bit with the windows down. As he prepped for a cleaning fee and scrambled to grab a vomit bag out of his glove box, she asked him what his thoughts were about death. The passenger then revealed she had cancer.

“She told me she was dying and she was going to be ok,” the driver wrote. But what she said next drove him to tears. “She told me she was celebrating with her work friends who threw her a going-away party,” he wrote. The passenger had told her work friends that she was taking a position abroad and “Just didn’t tell them abroad was heaven.”

After dropping her off, he turned off his Uber app and cried all the way home.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
