I’m an Uber driver and I drove a guy to the airport yesterday. He gave me a large unopened bottled water, and a large – folding knife. Since he couldn’t take either on to the plane, I’m still not sure whether he considered these tips, or considered me a convenient trash receptacle.
On Saturday a young woman, a voice student at UW, sang me an aria in the car at the urging of her friend, because they didn’t have tip money. I don’t like opera and her voice cracked because she wasn’t properly warmed up, but I thanked her anyway. (I didn’t recognize what she sang.)
Have you gotten any strange tips?
