Bangalore. With the craze about Ola share rising rapidly, a baffling incident has been reported by one of the riders who has been stuck in an Ola shared cab for the last three days, still waiting for his drop. The Ola Share user, Musafir Singh who is a resident of Bangalore, decided to take an Ola Share cab from his office to home in the evening, paying lesser than the fare of an AC bus. In the first few minutes itself, he was sharing the cab with two others, their drops being 500 kms apart.
“I’m stuck! Still stuck in the cab. Please tweet to Sushma Swaraj and rescue me!”, screamed Musafir when contacted by FakingNews for his views on Ola Share. “I have been sleeping with the driver for the last three days. Even his family knows me now, but can somebody please drop me home?”, he added.
Musafir complained that whenever he reached close to his home, the driver’s phone would ring for a new pickup in the opposite direction. He even blamed his luck for the massive delay in his drop. “On the second day, I was crossing my office and finally heading towards my home, when the phone beeped and the driver accepted the pickup. It turned out to be my manager who asked me for my daily status report!”, said Musafir.
On the flip side, the Ola driver is happy that he has found a brother in Musafir. “I have invited him to my daughter’s wedding and I will personally pick him up, not in a Shared cab of course. This is not new. One day, after midnight, an eloping couple booked a pooled cab to run away from their parents. After 8 hours, when they were still waiting for their drop, they decided to take the bus and go back home. Their parents thanked Ola and me”, the driver smiled with pride.
Ola has clarified that Musafir is still going to pay Rs 72 for the ride, despite covering more than 470 kms till now.
