Imagine being an Uber driver, minding your own business, and driving your passenger to their destination, when suddenly a would-be robber slides into the front seat and demands your wallet.
That’s exactly what happened to one Uber driver, with a twist: there was a passenger in the back seat witnessing the whole thing.
But this driver didn’t let the robber get away with it. With nerves of steel and a quick wit, he stood up to the thief and refused to give in.
He warned the robber to avoid getting shot so he probably had his own piece pointing at him.
Funnily enough, everything this Uber driver did is exactly the opposite of what’s recommended by experts in law enforcement.
The cops recommend the following things:
1. Stay calm: Try to remain calm and composed. This can help you make better decisions in the moment and avoid escalating the situation.
2. Give them what they want: If the robber demands your wallet or other valuables, hand them over without hesitation. Your possessions can be replaced, but your life cannot.
3. Don’t make sudden movements: Avoid making any sudden movements that could be interpreted as threatening. Keep your hands visible and follow the robber’s instructions.
4. Contact the authorities: As soon as it’s safe to do so, call the police and report the robbery. Provide them with as much information as possible to help with their investigation.
The cop might not like this but the man was calm and did everything right, the only objection is that the should also own a gun to level thung next time when some thug enters his taxi!
The internet was thoroughly impressed by this driver and @Jon said, “Didn’t even realize the passenger was back there.” And then @NYClopez said, “Everyone talking about how calm the passenger was . Nobody talking about how gangster the Uber driver is.”
