I take Uber everywhere. All of the time. And I love it. Think its genius. But I still have those moments when I'm thinking, " wow this could go horribly wrong."
Uber driver: What is your address?
Me: Don't you already have it? I sent it with the request.
Uber driver: Yes.
Me: Then just go there.
Starts driving, clearly high.
When we get to a 2 mile straight away, he keeps stopping at green lights.
Me: Um, it's green...go.
Uber driver tries to take a right down murder alley.
Me: What are you doing? We have 2 miles to go on this road before you take a right on Estes, you do know I know where I'm going, right?
Uber driver: No response
At this point I call Dummy for a witness.
Me: So where are you from?
Uber driver: Haiti.
Dummy(on the phone): Did he just say Haiti? I'm thinking hatey. Make him spell it. Do you have your taser?
Feeling sympathetic, I ask how long he has been here....
Uber driver: 20 years.
What is your take on this people? Murderer? (that is what I am leaning toward). Or just massive stoner that has never picked up the lay of the land in the short 2 decades he has been here? Either way, I think the lesson is: Don't let your guard down in an Uber. And always always bring a taser.
