Stickgalsick I’m sorry you have to put up with that & hope you’re doing ok. You stayed composed & dignified throughout. I’m pleased Lyft have backed you up too. More employers should have a similar policy!
Stay Good xx
Laura Jean I’m so sorry that happened to you. You did not deserve any of that. What awful, awful people. You handled it so well and I commend you for that. You are always welcome here. Red heart
JorgecTa David Sending you all my support from El Salvador, Central America. When I lived in the USA I went through some racist BS, but not as bad as what you went through. I am glad everything is OK. Greetings,amigo.
Diana Rison I’m from Issaquah and unfortunately know these fools. I’m so so sorry you had to endure them. Our daughters played basketball together & he’s always been a tool. I’ll gladly call your @lyft any day 24/7. You’ve got more humanity in your pinky than he does in his polar bear body
