The driver – who was respectful and polite the entire time – refused to cave to this crybully, and after being cursed at and called names, he ended the ride early and dropped Nielsen off on a sidewalk. Sadly, the driver was fired from Lyft after the incident, but was soon given his job back after the video somehow wound up in the hands of journalist Lauren Southern, who released the video on YouTube.
Not only did the Lyft driver get his job back, Nielsen has become public enemy number one due to her childlike behavior and reasoning. She’s essentially been chased off the internet by every group of people under the sun – though she primarily blames it on men – and has since deleted her Twitter account. She put up a post about it on Facebook.
I find the end results altogether pleasing. Naturally because alls well that ends well for the Lyft driver, but also because Nielsen got her just deserts, and I’d like to see more endings like this. Not just because it denied a bully of her pleasure in pushing people around, but because it gave a great view into the kind of people SJWs are, and how a business should deal with them.
All of us, customers and businesses included, would benefit greatly from more events like this taking place. I’ll explain.
I can’t say for sure how it would have gone in my Lyft ride with this person, but I’ve had a few folks who were antagonistic and looking for trouble. In my experience (well over 5,000 trips on multiple platforms), the less energy I give someone who is disturbed, the better. Any response or feedback just builds whatever case a crazy person thinks they have.
I am planning to mount a hula girl on my dashboard though—and I hate mounting ANYTHING on my dash (even the glowstache)
