Nowadays just about everyone has the ability to film situations on the spot thanks to smartphones, which is probably a blessing and a curse.
Well, for a recent Lyft passenger, it was probably a curse. Essentially this lady was offended by the driver’s dashboard doll, and proceeds to chew him out over it. She doesn’t just tell him it offends her, but demands that he remove the doll, and then lectures him for several minutes.
Perhaps worst of all she’s filming the situation thinking that she’s in the right, and talking about how she’s going to humiliate him and upload the video go Gawker (hah). Meanwhile the driver does an amazing job maintaining his composure.
Here’s the video:
That lady is absolutely intolerable. Clearly she was pretty drunk, and all of that would be fine, except for the fact that she was the one who took the video footage to humiliate the driver. So I feel slightly less bad for her.
After public backlash she changed the handle for her Twitter account, which was probably a big mistake, since someone else took it over and has been running it as a parody account. The person who took over the account has offered it back to her, though there’s quite a price to pay:
.@dickyfeynman I will only give you this handle back if you buy a bobble head hula girl and take a selfie with it in front of a Trump sign.
