LOOKING FOR JUSTICE
Chavez and her husband are currently seeking justice for an act that they consider to be repulsive and degrading considering that she was only doing her job.
The female driver uses the gig during the weekends to complement her nine to five job, and, usually, the rides go well and customers are happy with the service.
But these two weren't. As it can be seen in the clip, a man and a woman were in the backseat of Chavez's car when she was asked to drive back to the bar they were just in to collect other people.
THE HIGH LEVEL OF DISRESPECT
Chavez refused and politely asked them to leave the vehicle. Although he wasn't happy, the male complied with her request, but the brunette refused to leave.
After arguing back and forth, the inebriated passenger is seen throwing the hot food at Chavez's face before leaving the car, causing the driver to start crying.
A BLESSED ENCOUNTER
It can be dangerous to work as an Uber or taxi driver, but not all clients are bad; for Pedro Hahamian, from Los Angeles, driving Quincy Amarikwa, a player for the San Jose Earthquakes, was life-changing.
During the ride, the professional soccer player learned that the cab driver was having trouble paying his mortgage, so he handed him a check for $2.200 on the way out.
At the time, Hahamian didn't even know who Amarikwa was, but after realizing that the check wasn't part of a gag, he was over the moon. The two posed for a sweet pic together, which was later shared by the soccer club on their official Twitter account.
