Social news site Reddit frequently serves up some lovely content, with AskReddit in particular making for some entertaining reading.

So when user IamHaiseSasaki asked Uber drivers about the deepest secrets they overheard, you just know it’s going to be interesting.

Of course, the internet being what it is, you have to take some of the stories with a pinch of salt. But I want to believe…

User westport76 claimed that they picked up an “absolutely hammered” girl who asked to simply be driven around for a while and apologised for being drunk.

The girl then said she had terminal brain cancer and chemotherapy wasn’t an option.

“She told me she was dying and she was going to be okay. Tonight she was celebrating with her work friends who threw her a going-away party. She told them she was taking a position abroad,” the user wrote.

User YetiPie said they had just dropped off a “young, overly affectionate couple”:

I hear a cellphone ring in my backseat, realise 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.

Redditor BrendanM61 has a brief, rather offbeat story.

It wasn’t so much weird as it was random but my first night driving for Uber/Lyft I picked up a dude at 2.30am that was finishing up a pub crawl. The dude was dressed in a purple dinosaur onesie and was HAMMERED (sic). He got in and started telling me his entire life story and how he came out to his parents and moved across the country the next day.

Redditor Wiltron has a somewhat darker story — or that’s what it sounds like.

“Two 40-something guys who I picked up from a bar were talking on a phone (speaker) and they were trying to make plans with a third guy who was at a party with a bunch of drunk 12th graders (exact words),” the user recounted.

“One guy in my car asked if there was anyone younger there, other dude said ‘dude really?’, Followed by silence, then he said ‘fucking sweet’. Not sure as there was missing context but it sounded like there were younger teenagers there already drunk and these older dudes were going to pick up.”
