Uber Drivers Share The Deepset, Darkest Secrets
When you ask for an Uber, do you automatically think that you have the right to use them as a therapist? Well newsflash! It reaaally doesn't. They're there to take you from point A to point B, just like a regular taxi. Unfortunately, some people love to spill the beans while a driver listens awkwardly. They end up using their Uber as a mobile confessional or a bartender.. Just don't expect an Uber driver to keep your dirty little secrets private because they never took a vow of silence, which is fortunate for us, but not so fortunate for the owners of these steamy secrets.
#1. Now a lot of passengers seem to be under the unfortunate impression that Uber drivers want to listen to their problems.
But some of them don't. Some people really enjoy gossip and getting entertained while driving, but those who don't simply cannot tell you that to your face.

#2. Uber drivers simply don't know what they're going to get when they let a passenger into their cars.
While some passengers might appear docile and pleasant, or at least, on their meds, others, can be just a liiiittle crazy.
"After casual conversation with a passenger, this Uber driver got the scare of his life. "F**CK!! WHERE ARE WE?!" The driver then let him know where they were — headed to his house. Again he yells out! And the driver starts to dial 911. Once they reach his destination, the man, in a well-dressed suit who was also sweating profusely, gets out and says, "Thanks! Watch out for crazy people!"

#3. For some insane reason, when couples get into an Uber, they decide to make out like there's no tomorrow, which is tolerable for most drivers.
But things can't get super awkward fast, when the driver discover a dirty little secret about the male passenger when this happens.
"A driver picks up a couple who is masking out in the backseat. "Cute," thought the driver. He drops them off and then realizes the man left his phone. It rings and he picks it up. Turns out, it was his wife checking in on her husband who was on a "business" trip!"
#4. Of course it's not uncommon for passengers to discuss all kinds of weird things, especially when there are four people riding in the backseat.
Then again, the last thing an Uber driver would expect to hear from a pair of middle aged couples is a kinky discussion that almost makes us think this poor Uber driver was being pranked.
"Two middle aged couples trying to agree to a foursome."
#5. Being an Uber can get downright terrifying, at least when the passengers start asking questions about things that could put your life in serious danger.
For this Uber driver, these questions felt like the beginning of a terrifying horror flick.
"A guy picks up two guys headed to a strip club in his car. And then the passengers ask some...questionable questions. "What would you do if someone just grabbed the steering wheel and ran the car into the median?" "Have you ever thought about what would happen if someone in the backseat tried to strangle you?"
