Howard University Student’s Wild Twitter Story of Attempting to “Shoot Her Shot” With Hot Uber Driver Goes Viral

Last year, the internet was captivated by a Twitter story told by Aziah King, or better known as Zola. Though it’s less outrageous as Zola’s story, a new story retold on the Twitter has gone viral.

Beginning December 6th, Twitter user @KelliAmirah recounted how she tried to “shoot her shot” with her “fine AF” Uber driver. With memes and gifs, the entertaining 40-tweet thread will have you on a rollercoaster of emotions and actually rooting for Kelli (who is currently a Howard University student) to snag a date with her hot Uber driver.

So I say hey and he’s like “oh hey wassup” and looks for my charger for .2 sec before handing it to me.

Now I have a good ass look at his face & I’m like he too fine, I can’t back down.So I’m thanking him for bringing it & he’s like no problem

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 6, 2016

I can tell he’s about to make moves to leave so it’s now or never. Time to actually shoot this shot

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 6, 2016

So I say, “Excuse me if this is really forward, but would you like to go out sometime?” pic.twitter.com/XyomQzyHAn

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 6, 2016

And then he like chuckles and smiles, and says “Text me” pic.twitter.com/nHbiEn2Div

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 6, 2016

So yeah. I shot my shot. It actually was successful. The end.

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 6, 2016

Happy ending, right? Not so fast. Kelli has more of this epic story to tell and you won’t believe this twist.

Update: I hate my life. pic.twitter.com/bapaxnVFLI

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 10, 2016

This man is married. Has a whole ass wife. What.

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 10, 2016

I’m really just sitting here so befuddled…

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 10, 2016

Why not just tell me upfront thooo. “Wanna go out sometime?” “I’m married” “okay cool. Bye”

— Nocturnal HoHoHo?? (@KelliAmirah) December 10, 2016

Kelli’s Uber heartbreak tale has been shared thousands of times. Looking back, she admits to BET News that she was “probably a little thirsty” for the Uber guy. However, the experience was just her getting out of her comfort zone.

“I’ve been trying to get out of my comfort zone and be more forward, which is why I did this. I’m also slightly anxious so my anxiety was through the roof throughout the ordeal. The whole leaving the charger thing was such a spur of the moment thing, I didn’t really give myself much time to think about it until after the fact.”

She also compared the situation to the new hit HBO series Insecure. (Shout out to Issa Rae for her Golden Globe nomination!)

“Me and my friend were binge-watching Insecure and talking about how great and relatable the show was. And then, next thing you know, this guy I asked out turns out to be married and I couldn’t help but think how easily it could’ve fit in to the show. I’m very over dramatic, so when I first got the text, I, like, screamed and dramatically slid off my super-lofted bed to the floor while my friend is looking on trying to figure out what happened.”

It’s unfortunate the guy Kelli really wanted bruised her heart in just a matter of days. However, she’s glad that her story brought a little humor to the Twitter-verse. Maybe she’ll get lucky with her next Uber driver.
