Uber and other ridesharing services have absolutely changed the transportation game over the past decade or so, giving riders an alternative to mass transit, rental cars, and skitching a ride on a skateboard like you’re Marty McFly.

The service has made it infinitely easier to get where you need to go but that’s not to say there aren’t downsides to using it (aside from seeing a water bottle of suspiciously yellow liquid rolling around in the front seat).

Every Uber ride is a gamble—you never know what you’re in for when once you confirm your pickup (although, at least in my experience, there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to be riding in a black Toyota Camry).

However, there’s nothing more stressful than not knowing what you’re in for once you get into the car. Is the driver going to be one of those guys who insists on telling you his life story? Will he have an aux cable? Is your passenger rating going to take a ding because he didn’t like the music you chose?

Some Uber drivers go more out of their way than others to make the ride an enjoyable experience for everyone involved but I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone do it better than George Ure, who recently set the internet ablaze when he started handing out menus allowing his passengers to pick the “type” of ride they want before heading off to their destination.

Here’s the full menu if the picture is too hard to read:

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 lover’s name tattooed on you. Never.

The Slent 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.

According to Forbes, the menu began to circulate online after it was posted by one of Ure’s passengers, who said he chose the therapeutic option:

“He’s the best Uber my friends and I have ever had. We chose the ‘Therapy Ride’ and from the start of our ride he was a really good listener and understanding.

We could tell he was a genuine guy. I’m glad he’s received all this love, he deserves it.”

I hope Uber is paying attention because I wouldn’t mind seeing a couple of these as an actual option on the app at some point in the future.

Frequently described as "freakishly tall," he once used his 6'10" frame to sneak in the NBA Draft before walking around the streets of NYC masquerading as the newest member of the Utah Jazz. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to land him a contract, so he was forced to settle for writing on the internet for a living instead. If you're mad about something he wrote, be sure that any angry tweets you send note the similarity between his last name and a popular insult, as no one has ever done that before.
