Being seen driving Uber is more embarrassing than....

I picked up my coworker, an engineer from a different department, while driving Uber. I didn't recognize him at first and then he told me where he worked. I then proceeded to say, "well, I'm a PhD Scientist for the same company." Why I opted to identify myself, I still don't understand.

Now, the running joke for business lunches is, "Let's call an Uber--oh look at that, he's already here."

Or, "that's some 5-star driving".

Or, "got any Uber stories?"

Rideshareing during your High school reunion, and getting one star pity party from your drunk mates.

Like an intervention. They one star you to your face in the car, whistling take this job and shove it. Invite you into the reunion.
@SadUber did this. Thought they were laughing with him but later saw video on Facebook of the reunion and realized they were making fun of him. I swear, I think he may have offed himself, thsts why he hasnt been back...

That’s an awful thought. I hope not. I’ve started reading his threads, and he is a creative genius.

My solution for the “high school reunion” question.

Showed up in a wheelchair with my leg off in my army dress uniform.

Drank for free all weekend...

No mention of cab/Uber driving at all...

“What are you up to now Stevie?”

“I keep myself busy and I’m getting by.”


But for a disabled vet “keeping myself busy and getting by”

That sounds like I’m overcoming adversity and thriving

If anyone else tried that....

Probably not the 80 bajillion rounds of sympathy beers....


Also...
Made a girl I knew who had hip replacement cry when she realized she took the only handicap spot at one of the venues...

I hope she removed her car for you.
