My favorite kind of rider is the person who is generally excited to be in the limo. Maybe it was a surprise from a loved one, or they have never been in one before, but they are just so happy to be in the limo. They treat everything in the car as if it is gold and get so excited about the window going up and down and that there is champagne in the car. I love these kinds of people because they truly savor the moment, and they believe they are experiencing something special. You know that that ride made their day.
My other favorite kind of rider is one that asks a lot of questions or that wants to talk a lot. I love hearing about people’s lives and how it is that they got to my limo. Sometimes people tell me about their adventures, but other times about their struggles. One man got a ride by himself one day and he told me that his wife had always wanted to be in a limo and she never was. So, he brought her ashes in an urn and we drove around the city for two hours while he told me stories about her. It was one of the best rides I’ve ever had.
For the most part, I have great riders and it’s the reason I do what I do, but sometimes you have a passenger that makes it extra special.
