Default My Lyft rider said she was about to pull out her gun...

https://player.vimeo.com/video/337426924

In the past week I've seen some crazy stuff driving for Lyft. From a dog running down the street with a bloody mouth to a homeless crapping on the sidewalk but nothing that has really personally put me in danger.

In this edited video (for time) the black Scion driver can be seen driving erratically. Turning left while signalling right was just the beginning, when it runs a stop sign and finally decides NOT to move in front of a line of cars I decide to give him the horn. When he opens the door everyone tries to get out of there. When we pass him he is angrily trying to look into my car while lifting his hood but slams it back down almost immediately. At this point my passenger hangs up the phone with her boyfriend while saying "maybe she needs to use her gun to shoot that guy". At the next stop the Scion blows through the stop on my left doing 40mph, runs up a few hundred yards, stops and opens his door and hood again. I make a turn to avoid him while the passenger dials 911. At the end of the ride she said it was "fun" and tips me $10 for a $5 ride to Winco. I asked if she was really packing and she said she was just joking...

My car is tinted as heck and his eyes were probably dilated, depending on what he was on.

Black Scion, the guy was high as S. The back of the car window says CHP something or other, maybe just got it out of the impound? First, right turn signal, turns left. Then runs a stop sign, that was the first sign he was driving erratic. Then he stops forever, I honk at him (the one and only time) and we all try go by him, but not before the truck 2 cars back decides he needs to drive on the wrong side of the road and jump the line.
I thought it was an Asian woman at first but he angrily looks in my car backs off and checks his engine but not really cause he slams his hood shut immediately and runs another stop right next to me. Then he stops again and checks his engine. I turn before getting close to him. What you don't see is the white smoke he leaves as he peels out trying to catch up to traffic. My rider calls the cops but she thought it was fun and left me 10 bucks for a tip. When I asked if she actually had a gun she said no, that was just a joke. But I think Lyft has a no weapons policy so she might have been covering herself.
When would you have made ready?
Well.....

Someone didn't do well in English composition. I have no idea what to make of this gibberish.

Making use of a free online tool like Grammarly might have made a difference.

But then again...

Lyft only authorizes CCWs in .22LR or 25acp only. And since everyone knows those calibers are ineffective you were safe either way.

Lyft's a joke with regards to CCW. Driver or passenger could be insta-banned for life for having any type of weapon on them. Even someone saying they thought you had one on you with no actual proof would get you at least temp-banned until you could prove otherwise.

Better to be banned by Lyft than perma-banned from life...

Honestly I just wanted to talk to someone about guns for once. There's only so much weather, traffic or homeless small talk to be had...

I'm assuming she was packing. Looks like a gang hood..
