Perhaps she just needed someone to listen to her….

I livew in my own little world

I have been driving for Uber every day for a couple of weeks, a few hours each day.

Here’s what happened this morning:

Uber app: Rider request, National City, 12 minutes

Russel: “12 minutes? Are there no Uber drivers on President’s Day?” (as he swipes the app to accept the rider request.)

Uber app upon arrival at pickup location: “Wait for rider. Rider has been notified.”

Rider’s name is Honey. Remember that.

Female person as she opens the passenger side door: “Are you Russel?”

Russel: “Yes! Are you Honey?”

Female: “Yes.”

Russel: “Great! We found each other! Get in and let’s go!”

Honey: “First I have to ask if you’re a cop.”

Russel: “One of the few professions I have never been in.”

Honey: “Why should I believe you?”

Russel: “Well, you’re trusting a total stranger to pick you up just because he’s driving for Uber….”

Honey: “What do you want to do?”

Russel: “I don’t quite understand. Where would you like to go?”

Honey: “We could stay right here are the Clarion.” (which is the pick-up location)

Russel: “So you don’t need a ride anywhere?”

Honey: “I would love a ride!”

Russel: “So where to?”

Honey: “So you don’t want anything?”

Russel: “I’m just here to take you to wherever you need to go.”

Honey: “So you don’t want anything?”

Russel: “I don’t think we’re understanding each other.”

Honey: “I better go.” (as she gets out of the car)

Well, I did get paid a whopping $2.25 for driving 12 minutes (9 miles) to talk with her for 5 minutes. Perhaps she just needed someone to listen to her….
