'Benefit of the doubt'

So southeastern (amongst others trains) fucked up today, meaning i was alone for a prolonged amount of time on a station platform…waiting. That information is obviously not a poignant part of my narrative.
However, i get asked by a stranger if he wants to share an uber. I’ll say yes ill pay if he gives half when we get “home” (probably 15 quid each) Easy. Anyway we ask other people on the platform if they want in to make it easier. No takers. Even though its v4wry obvious we are strangers ourselves so no awkwardness. Long story short 30 mins in a cab talking and chatting, mainly with the driver. He gets out to get money near home :(((((((((((( doesn’t come back. Im sat in the front with the uber driver and im going :frowning: and even the uber driver is :frowning: both genuinely gave this guy the benefit of the doubt to com back with money for me

Genuinely like giving the benefit of doubt to peoll6e but the constant displays of selfishness really embodies this whole sense of ‘ifgaf’. not down with that tbh
