armchair Lyft driver

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Dear kind readers: "Armchair quarterback" is an unflattering phrase describing an NFL fan faulting a coach for a bad game choice from the comfort of his living room. Sincerely, Tom Doody. I am armchair quarterbacking the Lyft driver in Queens who was punch by a passenger. The driver made two mistakes: ONE: he allowed the passenger to use his service as an ambulance. TWO: he threatened the passenger. When the diver found he was going to a hospital for an emergency he should have locked his doors and drove away. Once the two passengers were in the car if he wanted the trip to end his first move and the final move should be the same — no warning. The driver should have pulled to the side of the road, and gotten out of his own car. If the passengers refused to get out or began to vandalize his car he could call the police. As a pedicab driver I’ve done exactly what I am prescribing. I claimed mechanical problems, and stood on the sidewalk until the passenger took steps for an alternate route. The driver needs to realize the passenger had an urgent trip, and once it’s clear the car is not moving, and it has no driver behind the wheel the passenger will make alternate plans. Ambulances are more expensive than uber, so uber drivers are set for exploitation. The driver who programmed himself or herself to be a hero is on a course for disaster. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
