Sometimes a taxi ride can be a bit frustrating as things can be frustrating. Things might not be matching up to your mood. However, this Uber driver will give you a happy ride because you will be deciding how the ride should indeed be.
George, the Uber driver came up with a conversation menu for riders to select what they wanted during the trip. The menu includes: The Stand Up, The Silent Ride, The Therapy Ride, The Creepy Ride and The Rude Ride.
The Stand Up is where George will ‘tell you about things that are funny’, which could be about his prison stories and other ‘poor life choices’. While, the silent ride doesn’t require any explanation.
The Therapy Ride could be exactly what some people need: when you just want to vent to someone and all they reply with is ‘that must be hard’, ‘wow that’s difficult’ or ‘life just isn’t fair is it.’
The last two options aren’t as great with The Creepy Ride being where George ‘doesn’t say anything’ and ‘will just look at you from time to time in the rearview mirror’, promising to be ‘all creepy like’.
The Rude Ride is just where he gets to be a dickhead – which could be quite fun if you were George.
One of the passengers who experienced the ride shared the menu which fetched up more than 400,000 likes in just a few hours.

George didn’t know his little stab at banter had taken the internet by storm, but after a friend told him about it, he started a Twitter account.
He’s written: “I’m so happy that my menu is making so many people laugh. It is humbling and exciting to see this all over the Internet. Special thanks to @LuisLovesGoats for posting, @mccurly911 for letting me know this went viral, and @Uber for the awesome employment.”
George has started a GoFundMe page to help him get an automatic car as he says the hills in Seattle are tough on a manual transmission.
So, what do you choose if you are on a ride with George?
