Uber driver's mobile turned off and he asked for mine so he could follow the directions and get me to my destination.

First time that ever happened.

Uber driver giving orders to Siri repeatedly during the ride. Does that mean I should keep my mouth shut?

7 minute Uber wait. Driver cancels right before the last turn to get to me.

Now I get a 9 minute one who is on the phone with Uber in the vehicle's speakerphone. He is trying to ask Uber if he can drive with a rental vehicle because the one he has now was hit by a car and he needs to send it in for repairs.
I am actually in this car. I feel safe.

Listening to the driver's kid call and talk to him in some foreign language over the vehicle's speakers. He says he will be back in one hour which is clearly not the case.

I am going deaf in this car. It wasn't so bad when the windows were down but he put them up when he pulled on to the highway. He was yawning constantly before so I am tolerating the music volume just so he doesn't fall asleep at the wheel.

This Uber driver has frizzy orange hair on her photograph but in real life just has braided her in black tied behind her back.

I have to say she drives better than the last two men who took me through this 45 minute circuit.

I got 20% off on my next 5 Uber rides. Used 2 of them on rides that were $55 and $100.

Now I have to be judicious to use them on long trips and now blow it on a $12 ride.

Uber Pool is coming back as Uber Share or something.

I will always remember this self sufficient financial advisor cougar I knew would use it to meet random young men when she went to/from the city core.
