The Singapore private-hire industry, if it were to ever publish a book with every driver and passengers’ experience, would definitely sell out fast.

Because some of the stories contained within its pages would seem so fantastical you’d think it belongs to Harry Potter’s world.

And if The Fantastical World of Grab Drivers ever exists, this GrabHtich driver’s story would definitely make the excerpt.

Yes, it’s that interesting.

GrabHitch Driver Shared Her Story About Two Passengers In The Morning

On 10 Oct, a GrabHitch driver shared two different conversations she had with GrabHitch passengers.

She wanted to go to a McDonald’s at Ang Mo Kio at Sin Ming Road and decided to hitch people along the way.

She accepted a booking at 6.25 am and 6.35 am.

Her first passenger said she has to reach the [email protected] Mo Kio by 7 am. After considering the factors involved, she decided to cancel the ride as it seemed she might not be able to accomplish the mission.

And with that, the passenger erupted.

The passenger said she had to report Patricia to Grab for cancelling an advanced booking after accepting.

The GrabHitch driver explained that she had accepted the job at 6.35 am and cancelled at 6.36 am.

However, the passenger was not pacified and said that she had taken 10-minute rides from her present location all the time. She added that the driver “selfish” and “irresponsible”.

But Her Day Got Even Worse

Her 6.25 am booking started acting up.

At 6.35 am, the driver checked with her passenger if she was okay to share the ride.

The passenger had replied that she won’t mind if it’s a student (why oh why?!).

The driver then replied saying that if the passenger is unable to share, she will have to cancel the ride.

At 6.54 am, the driver decided to cancel the ride and informed the passenger about it.

When the driver tried to explain why she cancelled the ride, the passenger refused to listen to her explanation and blamed her for not informing at the start.

The passenger added that not “everyone stares at hp” in the morning.

GrabHitch Drivers Are Not Private-Hire Drivers

The two conversations above showed two things.

One, it’s quite possible to become furious beyond belief if the ride you think will be there cancels on you.

And two, not everyone knows that GrabHitch drivers are not private hire drivers. In fact, they do not really earn much from the service except to cover their cost and contribute to a car-lite society.

And when you take GrabHitch, it is likely that you will have to share the ride depending on the preference of the driver.

You know what people say, right? You get what you paid for. 

But some people just think that the earth spins for them.
