Wild & Scary Uber Ride

I am sure most of you have heard of Mr.Toad’s Wild Ride so let me tell you about mine.

I was sitting on the bench at the park entrance during the wind, trying to set up an Uber ride. I guess I put the wrong destination in because I received notice that a driver was coming to take me to City Center. I didn’t even know where or what City Center is and quickly texted the driver the name of my actual destination. When the driver came, I even told him the correct destination. He started driving and said “No English”. Any time I said anything, he said “No English” and after getting on and off the freeway, I was freaking out. I’m like “Just let me off at the next restaurant.” But, he totally ignored me and completed the ride. I was dropped off at an auto parts store and had to get another Uber to pick me up and take me to my actual destination.

Of course I reported this to Uber, but, their Customer Service is only online.

I don’t know if I will get a refund for that ride, but, I should. It was scary watching him go the wrong way from where I really needed to go and ignoring me when I wanted out. I almost felt like I was being abducted.

Uber did say they “Took care of it” …so the driver may have been let go?” As the 2nd driver said, “They should have Google Translate.” He thinks the guy knew English and just took me for a ride.

  1. I recently had a “similar” ( though not as scary) experience myself, but with Lyft instead of Uber. I was visiting the grandkids in Colorado and gps was not up to date enough to let me put in the correct address, so I used one of her neighbors addresses, thinking I would just message the driver the correct info. Because I had Scheduled my ride for the next day, Lyft wouldn’t let me message the driver.?!?! :\ It did all work out, but my driver also did not speak english which could really have made it complicated. Fortunately, I do speak Spanish….lol…at least enough
