Recently, Facebook user Stefanie Lim posted a screenshot of her conversation with her GrabHitch driver, and the post has since gone viral.
It’s a very simple conversation…with a deep meaning.
Well, sort of.

As you can see in the screenshot, the GrabHitch driver was all friendly at first, but his attitude soon took a drastic turn when she revealed that it was her boyfriend hitching his ride, and not her.
With 945 shares and counting, the debate roars on, with a large percentage taking Stefanie’s side.
“Sleazy…” and “tiko hitch driver” are just some of the many comments condemning the GrabHitch driver.
There are however also Facebook users that defended the GrabHitch driver.
“In the first place why your boyfriend don’t book himself leh… Nobody wanna hitch him so you use a female account and face ah. Lol.”
“Rider different okay, driver different cannot, people logic”
“Driver already choose female rider, now last min change to male rider. Who false? Anyway driver got the right reject no matter what happen.”
Is the GrabHitch driver maligned here, or being really unprofessional right here? After all, he did not request to cancel, and from the conversation, it could come across as just a joke when he said he minded.
After all, GrabHitch did position itself as a service that can expand your social network (i.e. make new friends).
But of course, not to get hitched lah.
The issue of “buaya” GrabHitch drivers isn’t new: earlier, there is a GrabHitch driver who cancelled a ride immediately when he realized that the rider isn’t female, and also another who allegedly tried to ask a rider for coffee.
Guess we’ll be hearing more GrabHitch stories like this. But seriously, is it that difficult for a guy to hitch a ride?
