A driver receives a call for help from a woman: to protect her he pretends to be her boyfriend
You don't always notice heroes immediately and the hero of this story certainly wasn't wearing a cloak. The protagonist in question is Brandon Gale, of Rock Island, who tells the story on Facebook. While he was doing his job as an Uber driver he got a request on the screen: “When you get here, can you pretend to be my boyfriend? I just need you to act like you know me and you are not my Uber driver ”. Gary quickly realized that something was wrong: he immediately removed the company stickers from his car and took off his wedding ring to play the part.
The man wrote: "When I arrived, my window was down. A man and a woman were talking in the courtyard. The woman was already playing the part. She looked and shouted, "Hello, honey! I'll be right there!" I didn't want to leave it hanging, so I yelled back, "Great, because I'm starving!" I greeted the guy. He gave me a half wave."
“She jumped into my car and we left. Once we got out of sight of the guy, she told me the rest of her story. She went to the fair with a group of friends. In that group of friends there was a guy who was very insistent with her and wouldn't take "no" for an answer [...] She thought she could get rid of him by heading to her car, but he followed her, claiming to be a gentleman. Before getting to the car, the girl claimed that she had lost her keys. He offered to give her a lift, and that's when she decided to ask for help from a fake boyfriend. "
Gary continues: “Girls, if you have the Uber or Lyft app and you need a rescue strategy, use the messaging system within the app. You can make special requests that could save your life."
This story shows us how instinct, clarity and meeting the right person can save you from unpleasant situations.
