Bunch of old men get in Uber, demand to pay in cash.

Acting crabby is no way to treat your Uber driver.

All we know is... he's called the Sig.

So, as an Uber driver, you can't just say that the people weren't there to be picked up and just take the cash??

Since Uber doesn't operate in Alaska (yet), I presume this happened somewhere else.

I think they live in Washington. But, he's an excellent fisherman, I'm sure he has a couple of homes.

Monty Colburn lives near me (or did, I haven't seen him around in a while). I discovered this while having a beer next to him one day, blissfully unaware.

and you don't know if the show will pull some crap and have sig say something playing it ignorant or backstabbing about the ride and farking the driver. the ride doesn't have to be filmed just have the guy say "oh yeah we just got back to the dock in time after we tossed cash at that oompa? driver.

Article with more details:

https://consumerist.com/2017/05/19/deadliest-catch-star-apologizes-af​t​er-arrest-for-spitting-on-uber-driver/?

They used the app to call an Uber then hit "cancel" halfway thru the ride.
That means the driver would not get paid for the rest of the ride.
He asked them to make a new request to pay for the rest of the ride and they refused and offered him some cash. They were being dicks basically.
As evidenced by them spitting on the driver and kicking and denting his car.

Fight?

I'm guessing subby doesn't know how crab fishing works.
 
2017-05-19 05:15:55 PM  
These fishermen now think they're all that? Were they yelling "do you know who I am?"

I have no idea who they are . I don't have the cable channel the show would be on .

What an asshole.  I make less than he does, and I would never pull a stunt like that.

If Sig keeps doing this to Uber drivers, one of them is going to pull a Sig on him.

Ah, that explains it. I was like, 'how the fark d you even call an uber if you don't have a valid payment method set up?'.

As a long-time seattleite I'm not at all surprised to see an macho alcoholic fisherman acting like a jr high kid at his first kegger but I will give him a few bonus points for what looks to be a sincere apology that did not attempt to blame someone else.

Hey Jeff sessions - this kind of behavior is acted out scores of times in every city of size every single day in this country and you can lay it all at the feet of overconsumption of alcohol. I know alcohol does not have feet but forget about it - I was on a roll.

Maybe the Uber driver was a greenhorn.

I used to work around barge hands and tugboat captains for a short time, and I was told by one that all boat captains "have two ex wives, four girlfriends, and their kids call them 'asshole'."
I assume the same applies here.

shiat....well that was embarrassing.  That's what I get for posting in a rush via my phone.  At least the beer bottle I posted is the real deal.

So I have that going for me....which is nice

I'm guessing 1 crab would have paid the fare several times over.

even as a pretty libertarian gun owner, I don't think compressed gas guns shouldn't look so much center or rim fire ones.

True.  Although I'm kind of glad our toy guns in the 80s didn't have orange tips on the barrels.  It's just another weird opinion of mine.

But today?  I own firearms and am very pro-Second Amendment, but having them look too real is bad news, just like you said.

/Still embarrassed about that pic.  :-)

I always wanted Family Guy or perhaps South Park to do this short skit:

(focus on TV)

"And now, back to Deadliest Catch"

(inside a clinic)

"HIV.  You caught HIV from a prostitute."
*crying*

Ha. That's pretty neat. Those guys can throw back some brews. Once ran into a football player at a bar...I always forget his first name...last name Anderson, played for the Falcons and the Vikings years ago. Really nice guy.

I thought the video below tfa of his daughters claims of molestation was more interesting than drunks being dicks to an Uber's driver.
