If you move around by public transport either by bus or taxis you know weird things occur on the streets and when you download an app that promises some level of privacy, comfort and safety you expect just that.
Unfortunately this was not the case for unsuspecting Manuel who requested an Uber around 3:00 am in Chicago on July 17 but instead got a pervert who would rather receive oral sex while driving than concentrate on the road.
Manuel narrates his Uber ride from hell in an article he published on social media where he explained that the driver had pulled up to pick him with a prostitute in the front seat who proceeded to perform sexual acts on him while he was driving.
He wrote: “As I approached my Uber, I noticed there was a passenger in the front seat. I double checked to make sure I didn’t select UberPool, and then approached the car. I assumed it may have been a family member of some sort. As we pulled off the female in the front (who was clearly on drugs) attempted to open the door and could not even sit straight as the vehicle was in motion. She then began to grope him and grab him. They began to kiss and she began loosening his belt. As we got further and further from my pickup location I had no idea where I was, so I had to stay in the car. She then proceeded to perform oral sex.”
“This was my last straw. I asked the driver to drop me off. Since I’ve contacted Uber and they refunded me for trip and gave me a ‘$10 credit’.They’ve seen this video and are still ‘investigating’. They have been extremely bad at answering any messages I’ve sent, and I demand something gets done. This is not okay!”
Uber has responded to Manual saying that the driver was let go as soon as evidence was brought to them.
A refund and $10 credit? For such a scary experience? Really Uber? Pathetic, don’t you think?
