If you’ve ever taken an Uber, chances are you’ve found yourself having a conversation with the person driving. In this video, comedy duo Danny and Sean perfectly capture that dynamic, imitating Uber passengers and asking questions of an imaginary driver (as well as saying other things) that are almost painfully relatable.

“Have you ever murdered someone before?” “I just don’t like people from other countries.” “You’re cute!” “Has it been busy today?”

Plenty of gems here, but tied for best are the guy snoring and the guy asking if there’s an aux cable so he can only play snippets of several songs. If you’ve never used an Uber before, maybe take these jokes to heart, because you’ll save yourself and your driver a lot of misery by not behaving this way.
