So here I am taking advantage of a semi new ride-share company in New York City. Not like we don’t have enough ride-shares in the city, however that’s just my opinion. However, I really like this particular service, it’s like a glorified bus. We are in one of those six passenger Mercedes vans going up and down the avenues picking up and dropping people off.
It’s Monday morning and of course the mood of the passengers is “shitty”. No one wants to talk, they just want to get to their destination and start another miserable day at a job they don’t particularly like. What I find comical are the passengers that feel this service is specifically and only for them. You know whom I am talking about. I classify them as the “Entitled Ones”. The ride is never complete unless one of them gets on and huffs and puffs because we make a stop to pick up or drop off before their destination.
As we are making a stop, no one wants to move for her. This is why I sit in the back so I don’t have to move. Anyway, no one wants to move. The passenger sitting closest to the door had the nerve to ask her to go around. I said to myself, “You have to be kidding me, yeah, let’s have her go around into on-coming traffic because no one wants to move over one seat”. Before I could say anything the young lady said it herself “How bout you move over so I can get in and we stop delaying everyone’s commute, it’s not like your ass is made of gold”?
Coming from a true New Yorker right there and I love it. Everyone shifted a seat and she got on. As she sat down she looked at everyone and said “That wasn’t so hard was it” and my response “No not at all sometimes people and asses are one of the same” as I looked directly over at the jerk who asked her to go around.
