A dispute between an international school student and her Grab driver led the driver to dump the student mid-trip after he took offense at the student calling his ride a “taxi”.

A video of the exchange, filmed by the student, has been going viral online. According to the unnamed student, the dispute began when she argued with the Grab driver for being late and making her and her friend late for school. In the video, the student can be heard asking the driver where he was and complaining that she had to call him before he arrived.

When the driver comments that the student should take a taxi in future, the student says, “This is a Taxi,” to the driver’s displeasure. In the ensuing back-and-forth, the driver argues that taxi rides are public transport while Grab rides are private transport as the student insists that Grab rides are the same as taxi rides.

When the student retorts, “I pay for this service,” the driver tells her, “Go now. Go now. I don’t take your business.”

The student later reported online: “He left us midway even though we’re both students, underage and are going to school. It really wasn’t safe!”
