A few days ago, the ride sharings service that no one has the urge to boycott announced the partnership of your dreams: Lyft and Taco Bell.
This new “Taco Mode” will allow riders who choose Lyft to stop at Taco Bell (via the drive-thru, so you don’t even have to leave your car) on the way to your destination.
Sounds amazing, right?
Well, not if you’re the person driving the cars,
Lyft drivers have been expressing their anger against the new policy on social media, rightfully annoyed that the company is encouraging people to eat food during their trips, especially late night riders who will probably be drunk.
Hell no! I don't want people eating messy tacos in my car!

How dare you invite people to eat in MY car without asking ME??? Taco's are the messiest food ever and YOU want MY car clean.

@lyft no food or drinks in my car, especially drunk passengers, are you crazy??

Yes let's let the pax throw their trash on the drivers floor. Or dump food on the seats and floor. Do you all even care about our vehicles?

While Lyft does claim that driver participation is optional, Lyft is planning a nationwide rollout of Taco Mode in 2018.
