This is Zachary Tanagli, a Lyft driver from Melrose.

He recently started this GoFundMe, looking to raise $5,000 because he lost his job over “paperwork” issues, and wants to raise money to move to the Carolinas (one or the other, same shit) because evidently they are the only states in the country that provide employment. Even though he works for a national chain.

Oh yea, he looks normal.

This mange moose posts all over private Lyft Facebook groups, and sources tell us that he once claimed stolen valor, was proven false, and went in the dark for a while. Now he’s back looking for cash because of this “paperwork” snafu. Evidently he thinks Lyft is some sort of brotherhood where drivers help each other out in time’s of need.

But he forgot to do one thing – get rid of this picture from his Facebook page:

Turns out the “paperwork” he was talking about was a notice from the RMV alerting him that his license was suspended after being found guilty of 3 surchargeable events in a 7 month period.

Shockingly it’s not his first GFM either. Just last week he started this one looking for $10,000 to go to North Carolina to rebuild homes. I have to admit, this cover photo is VERY convincing.

I’m shocked it hasn’t elicited more money. Creepy looking dude who looks like Andy Dufrense after he crawled 500 yards through human feces asking for $10,000 for vague and unknown purposes? Shut up and take my money! At least now we know which Carolina he’s going to though.

Then today he asked the strangers in the Facebook group if they can each chip in a dollar per week so he can buy a $2,700 piece of shit 1986 trailer rape trailer that once doubled as a meth lab.

The fucked up part about this is that he was working at Lyft this entire time despite being clearly insane. That and the fact that he crashes into shit all the time while being employed as a guy who drives people in cars, but only lost his job recently. Ride share companies work because the people picking you up are supposed to be somewhat normal. If I saw this face picking me up for a ride:

I would kind of assume that the next time you’d see me is on Dateline.

Anyway, his Lyft days finally appear to be over, so he needs a backup plan.

Move over Burlington Mall Fupaslug – you’ve got competition.

    I’ll give him a dollar if it goes towards using the rape van as a Lyft vehicle.

    Holy Cow! That prick had a collision and 5 1/2 months later got a ticket for failure to slow and not signaling for a turn??? What kind of wild lunatics are on our wonderful Commonwealth’s roads? It sounds like Mad Max maniacs must be terrorizing the populace. Hopefully he at least wasn’t totally insane and had his seat belt fastened.

    He wins the crazy eyes award for the day, hands down.

    He should set up a Go Fund Me to pay for spelling lessons, or at least a spell check app! The pipe he is puffing on is obviously a penis compulsion. He’s gotta be puffing and sucking on something.

    I LOVE the pic with the aviators and pipe! Clearly delusional, and what the fuck is he trying to portray himself as, an intellectual? Pissing my pants laffing! I love this guy! I might send him a dollar! HAHAHAHA!

    Use PROFESSIONAL taxi drivers. Ride sharing operations are ridiculously sketchy. If you own a car, you can drive strangers? That is stupid. And what you get is completely unemployable people who are too high, too crazy to work at a regular job.

    With driving skills like that, you would think he was from Rhode Island…
