A Florida man got more than he bargained for when he requested an Uber.
Matthew Martson requested an Uber so that he could get to work Monday morning. However, the Uber driver had more on his mind than just driving from point A to point B.
Apparently, the driver offered to give Marson a ride for free, with one condition.
The driver allegedly said, “Hey, I’ll give you a free ride if you let me (commit a sexual act).”
WESH 2 hasn’t provided the lurid details, it’s not difficult to speculate what the driver had in mind.
A couple of things stand out here: One, the offer is succinct and contains all the necessary info to make the deal happen, so this can’t be the first time this driver has done this. And two — the driver has a perfect 5-star rating?! Maybe he knows what he’s doing.
Martson says he canceled the ride and was hit with a fee from Uber.
“I was shocked. It felt uncomfortable,” he said, adding, “Of course I canceled the Uber. But I was uncomfortable calling another Uber. You know, I was thinking about calling out of work.”
An Uber spokesperson said the company is looking into the situation and the driver and has refunded Martson’s $5 cancelation fee in the meantime.
With so many apps on the market designed to facilitate hookups, let’s keep Uber being Uber.
