In a story both bizarre and creepy, a male car-hailing app driver in Tianjin was recently given a 10-day detention after turning up to pick up his female passenger essentially half naked, using only a pair of sports shorts to cover his crotch.
Why he didn’t just put the shorts on, we have no idea.
And as one would expect the female passenger who hailed the driver through the popular app Didi Chuxing was terrified, asking the driver to stop the car and contacting the proper authorities.
“I have a picture as proof, he’s not wearing any pants!”
“Could you provide a picture?”

“I discovered this when I got to Xiawafang, I got out as quickly as I could, oh my God, it scared me so much!”
“We’re very sorry you’ve had such a bad customer experience.”
To make things even more slimy, the driver had the nerve to send the woman a threatening text message.
“You really have some guts. Are you trying to make some trouble here?”
So justice was served, but this wasn’t the most sinister thing that has happened to Didi passengers lately, earlier this month a driver in Shenzhen robbed and killed a female passenger, triggering a government crackdown against the car-hailing app, with 8,000 drivers suspended in the city.
Yeah, think we’ll just take the bus.
