Hey All, Got a ride with a Lyft driver today who was a veteran and just lost a friend. Drive was fine, but am worried about drivers mental health. Left a tip and the VA help line # in the comments.

This is a slippery slope. I know you mean well, but Lyft may take action and cancel his account if they think he’s a liability, seeing as they’d easily replace him with someone else. I honestly don’t know what I would do here

The guy just lost his friend. Don’t make him lose his job. People deal with death in different ways. Just because someone you know dies doesn’t mean you can’t drive.

Fair enough. Will take hive mind advice and drop it. Thanks!

Would not advise telling Lyft. Let the driver manage that. You did more than enough by providing VA help # and tip.

Am wondering if I should reach out to Lyft to have them get additional help. Or would they be punitive? Advice please.

Don’t contact Lyft. You may get him fired leaving him in worse shape

Don’t - what if he does lose this job, that could be a last straw. Just be empathic and supportive.

D2, probably not the VA one considering the VA is a joke and veterans die waiting to get help (see govt run healthcare)

Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
