my bro and i took an uber in Montgomery, Alabama over the weekend bc Lyft doesn't exist there. he was 24 minutes away, and our ride was 6 minutes. seems like he lost money on that one.

a 24 hour mattress store across the street from a bar isn't really a bad idea..

I’m pulling an Elaine Benes on this driver I don’t want to talk to. Headphones went in and Star Wars podcast went on but I fibbed and told him I have a lecture for a class. I feel so dirty.

Uber: "What's it about?"
You: "oh, division and low intelligence quotient correlations through social media over derivative expectations in cinematic performing arts".
Uber: "oh.."

I'm thinking that Uber evangelization is more common around here than in other cities. It can be as subtle as a radio tuned to a Christian station, or as overt as a full-on inquiry about your belief system from the driver. The latter happened to me only once, but it was on the way to the airport which is a long ride from downtown. He started off trying to debate minor theological points about Catholicism versus the Protestant reformation with me. Ultimately, I found that it was easiest to just agree with him for the rest of the ride and move on.
