The post is going viral on the internet.
Meanwhile, this incident just adds to the list of unique encounters that people have had in Bengaluru. Earlier, an auto driver in the IT city ingeniously integrated a QR code as his smartwatch’s screensaver. A picture of the driver accepting payment through the code displayed on his watch and called the man “Tony Stark” from the movie ‘Iron Man’ went viral.
“Today I met namma Tony Stark in @nammayatri. Asked my auto driver for the QR code. Man flipped his hand and showed me his smartwatch. Turns out he’s saved the QR code as his smartwatch screensaver. So much swag,” the user user @_waabi_saabi_ tweeted.
In another instance, a woman shared her peak Bengaluru moment. Taking to X, she narrated her encounter with an auto driver who gave her an ultimatum about waiting time.
Apparently, the woman booked the ride through Uber but couldn’t reach the pick-up location on time. The auto driver reached out to her through the messaging service of the application. He pinged, “I’ve arrived.” The driver nudged again, “I’ve arrived.” When the customer failed to connect, the driver wrote, “Time is over.”
