    He Heard About A Prison Break

    From Redditor u/chriscosta77:

    Drove for Lyft (in Denver, CO) between jobs this summer. My third passenger ever, and he was going to the airport. He said he was moving to Florida, to get away from it all. But didn't have any luggage, not even a carry-on. I wasn't going to say anything about it, but my curiosity got the best of me.

    "So, where's all your luggage? Did you ship everything ahead of time?"

    He doesn't say anything right away, and just as I was deciding that perhaps I wasn't going to get an answer...

    "Nah, I just had my friend call me a Lyft and he set up my flight. I just escaped from prison, but we look so much alike, his ID will work for me to travel."

    I was quiet the rest of the trip.

    They Landed In The Middle Of A Domestic Dispute

    From Redditor u/Wosh_Jamsley:

    Picked up a girl who had to go to work across town. She and her boyfriend were arguing in the parking lot as I was approaching. Girl gets in my car, and she's worried she's not going to get to work on time, and she would be fired if she was late. Get about a block away and my phone rings, I answered and tried to get it off my Bluetooth stereo to no avail. The person on the other line was her boyfriend, and he said he wanted to apologize about his girlfriend and that I shouldn't listen to her because she was a "[wild] b*tch."

    She heard all of it and didn't say a thing (very awkward). Finally get her to work, and she asks me to stay in the parking lot as she goes in and quits her job. She gets back a few minutes later, and, on the way home, tells me that her boyfriend once broke her arm in an argument and that he was going to be very mad at her and she was worried about going back home but to take her there anyway. Ended up dropping her off and calling non-emergency, but I have no clue if anything ever happened with it.

    His Passenger Had Given Up On Life

    From Redditor u/SwagathonMarathon:

    I had someone get in my car, told me he's in his late twenties and that he's having [relations] with a girl who just recently turned 18. I awkwardly told him that's good for him, and he proceeded to tell me that it's not, that his life sucks, and everything he does to make himself happy doesn't work. He told me he watches videos of people committing suicide and wishes he had the courage they did to go through with it. He told me he's going to go to San Francisco and spend every last penny he has on vacation and just jump off the Golden Gate Bridge when he's done. I didn't really know what to say. When I dropped him off, I told him that I hope things start looking up, and he just said, "They won't. They never do," and left.

    He also asked weird questions like, "If I hit you, would you kick my a**?" When I said I'd rather no one hit anyone, he said, "Dude, you'd whoop my a**. I'm a f*cking piece of sh*t."

    He Caught A Cheater In The Act

    From Redditor u/YetiPie:

    I picked up this young, overly affectionate couple that spent the entire trip making out in my backseat and telling each other that they loved each other. Cute.

    So I drop off the couple and head on my way to pick up my text fare. I hear a cellphone ring in my backseat, realize it's my previous ride's, and pick up the phone to let them know I have it, and I'll come back to drop it off. Turns out it was the guy's wife phoning to check in on him while he was on a business trip, which he was thoroughly enjoying with his mistress.
