Question Uber Issue? - December 9th 2016, 09:03 PM

So yesterday I finally used Uber. I was running late and decided to use it, to get somewhere faster than a bus. Cheaper than a cab. Anyways, my very first trip the guy flirted with me, asking me relationship related questions, asked me out, said I was pretty, blah blah. I didn't want to piss this guy off and tell him to back off. I calming said, "I am not interested in dating, I am happy single." he wouldn't stop. Once I got home he asked me out. Saying he wants to see me again. I calmly and with a smile said, "maybe when I request another Uber you'll get to see me again." I then smiled. He didn't take it well and went on and on. I got out and walked inside.

At first I was laughing cause it was the most weirdest thing ever. The fact this guy's would not give up. He even took my phone to show me what to do cause I asked do I need to do anything on my end. He's like I'll show you. Then gives himself 5 stars. It was again amusing.

I may contact Uber and complain about this driver.

This is a transportation I am going to use while getting home from work rather take a bus since it's cold and snowy here.

Would anyone recommend anything I should do? Call the police while this is happening, because being sexually harassed I do not put up well with and if he wasn't driving I would have been more stern.

Uber is legal in Ontario but not Quebec (I'm close to the Quebec border) so, would calling 911 via on route about some idiot harassing me warrant a 911 call on a highway?

If someone is sayinging something or doing something I don't like, I make sure they know it. In a car it's a little dangerous and I'd rather not piss off a driver because that becomes a Hazzard to myself and everyone else driving.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

To take a cab home would cost around $50, Uber it's about $20 or less.

Hey Chantal,

I don't know much about Uber as I have never used it personally, so I can't give you any personal advice. The best thing I could think of would be to see if you can request a female driver? Or maybe it's just that guy that was sketchy? You could also call Uber and tell them that you don't want that driver again. Definitely what happened was very weird.

I hope you decide what to do!

Absolutely call uber, and I'd also explain that he gave himself five stars when you asked if you had to do anything. This is probably enough to get him off uber together

Yeah definitely call Uber. They are very very picky about this stuff. Since he was harassing you, he will most likely be fired.
Uber normally is great, for me anyways. Perhaps you could request a female driver? that would be the easiest thing.
But definitely call Uber. That would be a great thing to do.


PM me if you ever wanna talk. Send a message my way.
And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.

Re: Uber Issue? - December 10th 2016, 11:40 AM

I need to look at the app more. I only launch the app when I'm using Uber. I haven't looked at it and ive been so busy that it crosses my mind, just haven't had the time to do anything else.

I'll contact Uber to let them know of the drivers behaviour. Not sure what happens after that, but I'll find out.

I just don't tolerate unwanted sexual advances or flirting behaviour. I should have said, "stop it" but I thought my responses to his questions he would have got that I wasn't interested. Some people don't get it and cross boundaries.

Nobody should tolerate unwanted flirting and sexual advances. There are ways to safely (although it'd be extremely risky) to remove yourself from the dangerous situation in a car if it ever happens again with Uber. I don't advise it if you're on the highway. But in other areas, call Uber like the others have said. This guy clearly thought highly of himself, giving himself five stars and thinking he can get away with sexually assaulting/flirting with a woman who just wanted to get home.

I reported the driver to Uber and waiting to hear back, but it's the weekend so I am guessing Monday I will hear back. I mentioned that if this happens again I will call the police. I described the situation and what happened.

No idea what they will do. I might email my local police here to ask the question, what if I am in a Uber car and the driver is sexually harassing me and won't stop. I know the obvious answer is to call the police, but you never know people can just go off the rails.

I had a weird situation with Uber. You can go on "Past Trips" within the app and report an issue. Usually their customer service is really good. My last issue was repaid in full, I got some credit for my next ride, and they assured me that driver would never pick me up again which is pretty cool. Best of luck! If you don't hear back from them in a few business days, you can always call their customer service line. Sorry you had to go through this!
