The reality of what it can be like to work in the services industry - when alcohol is often involved - is highlighted in this video filmed by an Uber driver.

In a particularly crime ridden weekend in Dublin city, this disturbing video resonates a little too much.

An Uber driver calmly asks a man to leave his car as he is too drunk to offer directions. Repeating himself, the passenger finally loses it and hits the back from the back seat.

Really cowardly stuff.

The driver, luckily, had some pepper spray and was able to defend himself and get the man who attacked him arrested.

We hope the man who struck the driver sees swift justice. If you can't handle your booze, and something as trivial as that can set you off, then you shouldn't drink. Simple.
