We all have weird stories when it comes to passengers: the pukers, the over-sharers, the longest rides, biggest tips, etc. Some of these stories are funny, some are weird, but some are downright scary. Today, RSG contributor Will Preston shares a scary situation that happened to him recently and how Uber handled it. What would you have done in this situation?

You’re about to hear a story whose climax ends with an Uber passenger threatening my life. I’ve given over 3,000 rides via Uber and Lyft, and nothing close to this has ever happened to me. As I mentioned in a few other articles, my car has apparently been puked in more often than any other Uber driver I’ve ever met, and I’ve had to kick out a few passengers who set off my “Spidey sense.” But what happened on this Friday night was on a whole other level.
