These are some things that make me just LOVE Uber. They're not to be taken lightly ~ I'm pouring my heart out here. Stay with me ADHD people.

1. How the heck would I ever know when my auto insurance was about to expire? Uber's emails and alerts are a complete life saver. I shudder to think of the scary nights I might have spent in the slammer. I know 'Orange is the new Black' but I'm all...
