It’s important to prioritize women’s safety, but looks as if Uber just doesn’t understand that. Of late, we are hearing of many women having worst experiences with Uber drivers. No doubt, Uber cabs give us the necessary comfort and luxury, but what about the safety factor? Isn’t that important too?
Being a multi-national company, Uber should give utmost importance to safety of travelers, but unfortunately, it has been repeatedly failing in that aspect. Yesterday, we reported a girl’s dreadful experience with a Uber driver and today, we are back with one more.
Famous comic Mallika Dua took to Facebook to share her nightmare with netizens. She is literally regretting her decision to travel by that cab. What happened was that Mallika just asked the driver to increase the air-conditioning, due to which he started abusing her and asked her to leave the cab.
Mallika lost cool and the duo indulged in a heated argument; the driver continued hurling bad words at her & it’s shameful. She shared the whole incident on Facebook along with the driver’s pic.
Here’s the pic;
Her Facebook post read,
“Uber India is the most vile organisation to exist. They don’t check their drivers profiles before hiring them and seem to learn NOTHING from their mistakes. This driver Chetan brought the car to a screeching halt and asked me to get out of the car when I asked him to increase the air conditioning. Yes OVER THE AC TEMPERATURE. He ended the trip and said “uttar gaadi se. Nahi badhaunga AC. Uber Tum logon ko ad mein kuch bhi dikhaata hai ki apna gaadi samjho. Aisa kuch nahi” we got into a very heated argument where I yelled my guts out at him screaming How battameez he is and how I will take action and he said “nikkal tu gaadi se bhenchod” and started to drive off with me still in the car. When I screamed and asked him to stop he asked me to get out again and started screaming bhenchod saali madarchod out in the open. I can afford a car and a driver in this city. What about those who don’t have that option? Are they supposed to put themselves at risk each time they order a cab? THESW are our successful startups? My ass. HOW THE FUCK does a multinational company like UBER have NO customer care/ point of contact in India? I’m shivering right now in broad daylight. If anyone has any contacts at the elusive bloody Uber, do let me know.”
This is her post;
Uber should do something to avoid such incidents, don’t you think so? So much ignorance is not expected, at least from a reputed company like this. Improving in customer service is very very necessary!
