Stinky RIDE SHARE Rides!

I'm Rahlita Thornton from the Thornton Esquire Law Group, PLLC. Today, I want to talk to you about being in a rideshare vehicle when the vehicle doesn't smell as fresh as you would like it to. I've had that happen to me on a couple of occasions. I know that I can smell a Febreze smell, but sometimes it's just not that pleasant.

Keep The Air Fresh

So rideshare drivers, can you please make sure that you're keeping these vehicles fresh for your passengers? Get some Febreze. Keep your air freshener in there. Keep the windows down, whatever you need to do, because sometimes it's just offensive to get into a vehicle and it's stinky.

Skip The Personal Questions

The other thing that irks me, and I've talked about that in the past, is that you drivers are talking too much and asking all kinds of questions. You're trying to get in people's business. "Oh, where do you work? How many years?" That's not your business. So you have to have a conversation, but all of these questions about this, this, and this?

Pay Attention To The Road

You're talking far too much. You should be paying attention to the road instead. I'm a passenger, and I don't really know you, and I don't know how you drive. I don't know how safe I'm going to be, so I would really appreciate keeping the conversation to a minimum.

I'm a pleasant person. I enjoy being around other people, but I just don't like it when rideshare drivers talk too much. I wish you would just pay attention to the road because I want to make sure that I get to where I'm supposed to be going right now.

Too Much Conversation Is distracting

I do engage in some conversation, but I try not to go overboard because too much conversation is distracting not only to me. And sometimes I want to sleep when I'm a passenger in a rideshare vehicle.

You're supposed to be keeping your eyes on the road. So try to remember that if you are a driver. I'm not trying to be offensive or rude. I'm just trying to make light of some situations that we have to deal with.

And if you have any questions or concerns, any jokes, or any funny stories that you want to share about being a rideshare passenger, feel free to reach out or comment below.

Selecting an attorney can be one of the most difficult decisions a person has to make. In what seems like an overwhelming sea of attorneys who do you choose? Are they qualified, compassionate, and are they willing to fight for you without compromising their integrity? When faced with this decision in 2016 I received this and more when I retained Rahlita Thornton as my attorney. Since 2016 she has represented me on several court cases and I've never been disappointed. She is well versed and very knowledgeable on many aspects of the law. Attorney Thornton and her staff work diligently to ensure no stone is left unturned and justice is served. When I was crippled with fear, bullied, and felt like giving up she was my voice. She is highly recommend and I'm truly blessed to have her in my life. TTW
