Uber is an odd social encounter. An absolute stranger is picking up a person and giving them a ride to a destination. There’s forced small talk, closed quarters and an overall feeling of “we should be friends for the next few minutes.” There doesn’t have to be, of course, you could just be a dick and go mute for the entire ride BUT if you’re a human being, you feel the need to make a connection.
This leads to people saying some dumb shit to Uber drivers. They also say dumb stuff in the company of an Uber drive, because after all, you’re buddies now!
This video is just a small sample of the odd stuff we all say during Uber rides.
