    My girlfriends friends think I'm a teacher.

    What do you people say? I can't be the only one in hiding.

    Who told your girlfriends friends you are a teacher?
    Who told your girlfriend you are a teacher?

    Tell the truth. Be proud of who you are. Find a real girl that appreciates you - not your job.
    Don't be a phony.
    Don't hang out with status conscious phony's.

    Be a real man

    My girlfriend told me to tell them.

    lol I don't want anyone to know I'm an UBER driver either. Life has really slapped you if you are an UBER driver. Would you tell someone you worked at McDonald's?

    Oh well my girlfriend makes a lot of money, and so do her friends. I'm highly educated but have always been super under employed. I need to find a waitress GF.

    I might tell them its none of their business, because it isn't.
    My job does not define me.
    I don't live for other people's opinion of me.
    I don't hang with judgmental phony people.

    If that works for you, good on ya. But I've never seen anyone happy being anything other than themselves

    I'm pretty happy being a teacher in my fake life. I'd way rather have rich hot girls think I'm a teacher than an UBER driver. If I didn't care about getting laid, I'd probably tell them I was an UBER driver.

    How about you're a Chauffeur with many private clients. Maybe that sounds better. Of course, due to the privacy of my important client base I can't reveal any other details.

    Nah, still a servant. A teacher is respectable plus they know I have NO MONEY, so they don't expect me to pick up the bill when out to eat which is awesome.

    Blah, if you're getting laid who gives a bleep what you're tell the broad. Enjoy yourself and get your bleep weet. All is fair in love and war. I had a human Resource friend who went to Miami and told this hot latina chick he was a doctor. Think he had a guilty feeling in the morning after having the time of his life? Hell no

    My niece works for McDonalds and is very proud of that. Only difference is that she started there in 1989 when she was 16, and after very hard work and company tuition assistance she is now a regional VP of Marketing making well over $300k with bonuses. So I guess working at McDonalds is better then driving for Uber.

    I'm a professional photographer and jazz musican, still do it on the side, but I can't do weddings anymore, due to a bad back.
    I dont' tell her what to say to people, but I doubt she tells them I'm driving for Uber. Frankly, I dont' give a damn if anyone knows I drive for UBer. It's honest work, and I find no reason to apologize for doing it. For years, I drove a cab, and had no trouble telling people I was a cabbie, in a company of professionals and more accomplished people. I'm an artist, jazz musician, composer, photographer, and making money in the arts is rough, and people know it, I show them my artistic accomplishments, and they are amazed, and that puts and end ot the "you're a cabbie/uber-er you must be a loser" BS.

    Oscar, I have always loved and respected your post. I can tell that you came from the old school days of hard work and honor. The days when our fathers put the fear of God in us to succeed in whatever endeavor we chose. I just wish that many others will adhere to your post as I have. God Bless

    Glad the navy seal is so proud of UBER drivers and their work ethic. I thought it was tough to be a navy seal.

    You are not just an Uber. You are also a person. That's what I would say.
