Kind Hearted Uber Driver Surprises Passenger

After taking a rider to her job at Tim Hortons, this amazing Uber Driver decided to go above and beyond, once the trip was completed, and circled back to deliver a special surprise.

Lamiyah Jabbar, the driver, picked up a rider named Diane. The two got into a conversation that prompted Jabbar’s return later in the day.

Jabbar shared a sweet video from her car on her way through the Tim Hortons drive-through, saying she was “about to surprise somebody” and that she would explain all the details afterward.

She pulled up to the window where Diane was standing with an iced coffee. After a quick re-introduction by Jabbar, Diane said she remembered her from their shared ride earlier that morning.

Then Jabbar started explaining why she was back.

The driver told Diane, “You said you were waiting till Christmas to get house shoes and some other stuff right? So you don’t gotta wait till Christmas.”

“Thank you so much, honey,” Diane said, visibly overjoyed.

Jabbar continued by saying “That’s your dress so you could wear it to church. If you don’t like it, the gift receipt is in there.”

And as Diane’s smile began to grow, so did the gifts.

“Here’s a $50 Visa gift card, so you can take that and get your house shoes and your robe when it’s time, OK?” Jabbar said.

Apparently Diane had told Jabbar that she was waiting to save money to buy those items for Christmas.

After thanking her for the gifts she said that it had been such a horrible day but she had just made it so much better.

Jabbar said that “This was on my mind from the moment she got out my car, so I had to contribute … can you imagine waiting till Christmas just to get a robe, house shoes and an outfit for church? We tend to take things for granted, but why not help someone else if you can.”

Uber told ABC News in a statement that “Drivers like Lamiyah are the heart of our service, and we’re inspired by the things they do every day to help riders and strengthen their communities”.
