If you’ve used a ride-share app more than, let’s say 10 times, you probably have at least one negative story to tell about it. Maybe it was something simple like the car smelling like baked urine. Maybe it was something more complex, like when my driver got out of the car to fist-fight a bicyclist who punched the side of his car, only to slip on wet concrete and break his collarbone. Sometimes, shit happens when you use a ride-share.
But do you ever stop to think about what it’ like day-in and day-out for the driver?

A metro Atlanta Uber driver said a passenger left a cell phone in her car.
“When I found the phone, being that the office is so far, I normally wait until I get a collection of things because people leave things all the time, so I could make one trip,” the driver, who did not want to be identified said.

“I told them the phone is at Uber,” she explained. “They said that they had contacted Uber and there was...
