5 star ratings!

Uber drivers truly see it all.  They see you when you're on your way to work, before a date, and blackout after the bar.  Unfortuntely, this can make for some very, very awkward incounters, for both the drivers and the passengers.

Most avid Uber users have had at least one questionable encounter, and after asking a group of Torontonians for their craziest experiences, we have compiled this list.

If you're looking for a little entertainment on this Friday afternoon, fell free to read on and share your own encounters in the comments below!

1. "I'm actually an uber driver, so this story will be told from a bit of a different perspective. I picked up a group of people after last call from a bar on Adelaide.  As we pulled out onto Spadina another car hit my vehicle and we all immediately pulled over to look at the damage. Once we got out, the other driver started to try and hide his license plate so that I would not be able to take it down for insurance.  Luckily, my intoxicated passenger popped out of the sunroof and took a photo of the license plate from above.  As the flash on her phone went off the yelled "case closed!" at the other driver.  It was hilarious and extremely helpful all at the same time."

2. "I called an uber to pick me up after breaking up with my now ex boyfriend.  Right as I got into the car I burst into tears (socially awkward, I know) and the Uber driver was so upset to see my crying that he started to tear up as well.  We spent the rest of the ride crying with one another, it was extremely weird, but somehow kind of comforting? Needless to say we never spoke again, and I think we are both equally motified about the entire situation."

3. "An Uber driver told me he followed me on instagram and asked for a photo. I looked like a bum so a I refused and was sincerly creeped out."

4. "Two of my friends and I were taking an Uber to go grab some coffee.  Our Uber driver was extremely friendly and was very interested in what all of us were studying at school.  After finding out we were all attening Humber for journalism she proceeded to give us a long pep talk about our field and our futures.  Once the ride came to an end we all got out of the car and walked into the coffee shop.  No less than 5 seconds later our Uber driver walks into the cafe and proceeds to crash our coffee date.  I guess she cut work eary that day to hang out with us."

5. "My dad was visiting from out of town and we decided to grab an uber after a dinner in the city.  When the Uber driver picked us up, my dad immideiatly noticed that our driver was his childhood next door neighbour.  They instantly started remonicing about old times, and I evidentally became the third wheel to my dad's bro date for rest of our 30 minute ride home to Mississuaga."

6. "I once got into an Uber and my driver immidetaly engaged me in a game of would you rather.  We were stuck in rush hour traffic on the Gardiner, and the game lasted the entire ride (which was probably around 40 minutes).  The most memorable one was would you rather bleed from your nipples constantly or cry blood whenever you had to speak to more than 4 people at a time.  Needless to say this guy got an easy 5 star rating."

7. "During a ride home after a night of drinking , I bribed my driver to take me through the Mcdonald's with a free happy meal.  We eneded up sitting in the parking lot eating our food together, and he didn't even end up charging me for the rest of the ride home.  This is probably the closest thing I've had to a date in a while, which is both extremely sad and iconic."

-Toronto Passenger


8. "I once had an Uber driver vent to me and everyone else in the Uber pool about how he didn't want to propose to his girlfriend.  We all gave him our advice, and it ended in a pretty heated discussion among all the riders.  Eventually we decided that he had to go with his gut, but I'm banking on the fact that he definitly did not pop the question.  I still think about him sometimes."

-Toronto Passenger


9. "I once had an Uber driver tell me that he wanted to tye me up and take me home. Definitly did not use the app for a while after that."

-Toronto Passenger


10. "After a extremely aggressive pregame my friends and I went to call an UberX to get downtown from Etobicoke.  Becuase we had taken so long drinking and getting ready there were no longer any UberXs available.  This was back when Uberblack was a new feature, and not knowing exactly what it was we decided to try it.  Eventually a GMC Yukon came to pick us up.  Once we arrived at the club our driver opened the door for us and we all fell into a snowbank while one of my friends exclaimed "suck my ass" -very classy.  Needless to say, the entire night was a blur.  The next morning we all looked at our Uber bills to see that the ride in total cost $200.  Until this day we are all incredibly grossed out with how much money we spent on an Uber ride none of us remember. FML."

11.  "Once my girlfriend and I were in an Uber and the driver proceeded to ask us if we liked to "share" as in if we would like to have a threesome. No thanks pal."

-Toronto Passenger


12.  "This isn't that crazy but one time my Uber driver rolled up the window on my thumb.  It was a pretty awkward ride after that."

-Toronto Passenger


13.  "One time I had to sit in the middle of my driver's two children who were in car seats.  They threw Cheerios at me for the entirety of the ride.  Worst. Uber. Ever."

-Toronto Passenger


14. "The ex had unexpectedly shut down early for the night so my girlfriends and I were heading home. We called an uber in Liberty that immediately popped the trunk and asked us if we wanted popcorn. He had maybe 8 ready-popped microwave bags just chilling for customers throughout the night. He just started his shift aka they were warm and fresh. The easiest 5 stars I’ve ever given"

-Toronto Passenger


15. "One time an Uber driver gave me weed chocolate.  I ate it during the ride and had never been so high in my life."
