I've heard mostly positive things about Uber. Even some funny jokes and memes about it all over the place.
I didn't think about Jess' point... If that is illegal they should sort their legal stuff out. It's a neat program anyway.
As for taxi drivers, I've had some nice ones, and some cranky ones. But omg, this one time very recently was weird as hell.
Our car had been broken down for months, so we took the bus everywhere. My partner and I had to go to Walmart at night to get foam so she could make this elaborate costume for a convention in town. She went as Springtrap from Five Nights At Freddy's. So we needed tons of supply's. (Costume turned out ace BTW)
Anyway, it was late, We'd taken the bus to Walmart, but needed a taxi home. So we call yellowcab. Thus young dude picks us up. Turns out he's a nerd and gamer type. Who makes costumes as well. He was really excited about Springtrap... So when we got to our house we'd all been chatting and he said he'd try to come to the convention the next day and see the costume.
Well... Next day, she's still working on it. We wanted to leave by at least 3 PM since the costume contest was at 4. But she had a lot of work left. Itnwas about 12 PM... And we're hotgluing and cutting foam and airbrushing like the wind. We were also in our underwear cause it was so hot...
Then we hear a knock at the door. And that fucker from the night before is just staring in the window of our door. My partner didn't have a shirt on, and this dweeb had no problem staring at her being nude... I was fucking pissed. So I get up throw my clothes on, she hides... And I answer the door angrily.
He said "you guys weren't there... At the convention.. I wanted to see the costume... Can I come in and look?" And he keeps peering behind me into our house.
I told him "we aren't done..? No you can't. Why the fuck are you at our house???" And he said he wanted to see if we needed a ride.
I told him "dude... This is inappropriate. You need to go... Besides this is my friend Chris's house, if he sees you here hell be pissed." (a lie but I was so weirded out)
He left and needless to say it was creepy and my girlfriend was really scared.
I mean him staring at her naked pissed me tfo. If I saw someone undressed in their door, I'd glance away immediately! Such a skeeve. I should called the taxi company and reported him. But he seemed like a dumb nerd who didn't understand that's not okay. He texted us and apologized... Pff. Hope he felt like a dumbass.
The most high exalting and I ain't halting 'til I die of exhaustion and inhale my exhaust fumes.
