Life puts you into tricky situations a lot of times and most of the times it comes unexpectedly. At one time, you are just going normally and expect everything to be normal but there hits the surprise and you keep on looking everything with eyes wide opened.
A man shared his experience on Reddit about a regular can drive which turned out to be a really weird and unforgettable piece of his life. In a long note which talks about his journey with an elderly Chinese driver, the man tells how it turned out to be really awkward when he thought he was helping the driver.
So the story goes like, the man sits into the cab with an old Chinese driver-
About half an hour past midnight, I took a cab home, a 15-minute ride at most.
The taxi driver was an elderly Chinese man, and he started asking me the usual questions like what I do for a living and where I’m from.
The conversation then moves to the new Samsung phone he just bought and how it’s causing him inconvenience.
He eventually mentioned that he bought this new Samsung phone recently.
I told him that I had the same phone and he immediately asked if I could help him with a problem he’s been having.
Specifically, he installed his old SD card to his new phone, but some of the videos in the card can’t be played anymore and some can only be played until a certain point and then stop.”
The man tried to help him out-
I immediately thought that it was probably caused by a corrupt or damaged SD card (he did mention that it was a very old card) and told him to replace it when he gets a chance.
He asked if I could have a look at it anyway, and I agreed, thinking that I’m being helpful to an old man who’s struggling with new technology.
He stopped the taxi on the driveway of my apartment, right in front of the entrance and handed me his phone.
The first thing I noticed was that the touchscreen was not very responsive.
I immediately showed him how to increase the sensitivity setting of the touchscreen to accommodate for having a screen protector and he was so thankful and it made me feel good that I helped improve this old man’s life to some small extent.
That feeling didn’t last long, though.
Now it was the time for things to start getting awkward-
He then started to show me where the broken videos are by opening his google photos app.
I tried my best not to pry on this old man’s private life, but as he scrolled through the app, I started to get this sinking feeling.
I noticed that he had a lot of photos of this young woman, who I assumed was his daughter at first… until I realised that a lot of them are racy pictures.
There was a big surprise next-
“I tried to remain positive by thinking that it’s good that he’s still able to enjoy camgirls at that age.
He eventually got to the videos he mentioned earlier and handed me his phone.
I tried to open the videos and indeed, they seem to be broken as the phone just goes greyscreen when I try to open them.
He then told me to check the video that seemed okay when it starts playing but stops at some point.
He opened the first video from that day and moved the time slider to about halfway through the video to a shot of him walking past the camera… b*tt-n*ked.
The shot started with his b*tt right in front of the camera, so close that I could see the wrinkles on them.
And to top it off, after his b*tt left the frame, I saw that behind him was a bed, with the woman in the pictures earlier lying on top of it.”
It became more awkward later-
He did genuinely sound thankful for my advice, and I was about to leave when he asked if I could take his business card, as he was looking for tenants for his apartment and maybe I could refer his place to some of my friends.
Desperate to end this very awkward situation I just agreed and took his card.
Glad that this whole situation was finally over, I was about to leave once again when he asked if he could also get my number in case he was in the area we could grab a coffee outside.
I was going to give him a fake number, but he then told me to just call his phone since I already had his card.
Not knowing what else to do, I begrudgingly dialed his number. After another round of goodbyes, I got inside the building as fast as I could and washed my hands immediately.”

Now that’s really awkward. We hope no one ever gets there.
