    So, I am about a week into my adventures driving with UBER (over 2 years ago) I go to this brew-pub in the back of a warehouse in the industrial area of town (There really was a bar there too...) 5 young men in their early 20's come rushing up to my car obviously buzzed at the least...(I am 52...

    Does anyone kick passengers out on the curb any more?

    I'm losing faith in this forum's ability to entertain me. As I sit in a metal box, in the cold with an air conditioner blowing on my head (don't ask), I'm seeing this forum digress into the filth I can't read on other cities' boards. Does anyone have a funny story to tell about a chancla/shank...
