Woman Shares Her 'Harrowing' Experience With A Creepy Lyft Driver That Is Resonating With Women

Ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft have become a ubiquitous part of everyday life for many people.

They've become so common, in fact, that many people no longer think about the vulnerable position people put themselves in when they enter the car of a stranger.

Twitter user @kellybarnhill took to Twitter to tell a harrowing story of a Lyft ride which quickly turned into a real-life nightmare.

Though it began as any other Lyft ride would, the experience would leave Barnhill shaken to her core.

The driver said there was a lot of traffic and began driving away from the city.

The driver began telling Barnhill again and again how pretty her eyes were.

Before Barnhill knew it, they were outside of cellphone range.

Without cell service, there was no one Barnhill could reach to help her.

She began telling her own story like her life depended on it.

Crucially, she made sure to mention her fancy, whereabout-tracking phone and powerful co-workers.

Suddenly, the driver decided the traffic wasn't so bad.

At that moment, Barnhill's one and only priority was getting out of the car to safety.

After she was back on her own, Barnhill was charged for three times more than she had expected.

No matter what the truth of the matter was, Barnhill's driver should not be behind the wheel of a ride-share.

Even after the ordeal she'd been through, getting ahold of Lyft was a struggle in itself.

People assume ride-shares are safe.

Most of the time, they are.

But, occasionally, they're not.

Gigantic companies that put their own profits ahead of everything create bad environments for everyone involved.

Many other Twitter users shared similar stories of their ride-shares gone wrong.

Barnhill returned to the thread later with some good news:

Be safe in your ride-shares, everyone! Better to be prepared than to be caught unawares by a malevolent individual.

Yes, if you've been on the internet, you know that everybody, even Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the 8th and final season of Game Of Thrones.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
