How many times have you found yourself in an annoying conversation with your Uber driver when they cannot find your location? Well, a recent tweet might give you an idea on how to guide your Uber driver without the hassle of trying to explain the route.
In a hilarious take on the miscommunications that take place among customers and Uber drivers, one tweet has probably paved the way for a revolutionary way to solve the predicament. A user named __@spxc_ii shared two pictures on Twitter on Monday, one of which showed a man flashing a beacon into the night sky. The picture next to it was a screenshot of a chat with the Uber driver. The customer messaged his lost Uber eats driver to look to the sky and follow the beacon. The driver seemed perplexed at first and replied with a ‘what’, which was followed by the realization when he finally saw the light as he typed in, “oh my god I see it.”
The tweet has garnered over 769.5K likes, 96.6K retweets, and over 4,425 quote tweets, since it was shared. With this tweet, netizens have been reminded of the Bat-Signal which used to be ignited by Commissioner Gordon and Harvey Bullock, characters of the DC Comics.
One of the users askedif their uber driver is some sort of batman,while another user commented that the one should replace the batman logo with the Uber Eats logo when they are summoning the Uber driver. One user commented that although flashing beacons in the sky is “technically illegal for civilians,” but he seriously wants to do it since the Uber Eats drivers always mess up the delivery at his apartment complex. Some users expressed their serious wish to buy the flashlight so that they can also guide their Uber drivers who seem to have lost their way.
Netizens also wondered if the appearance of flashlight in the sky made the Uber driver feel like a saviour like the superhero Batman. The tweet has certainly inspired people to try this new trick.
