I certainly am grateful for Uber. On Sunday I was told that I have pink eye, which by the way I don’t.
Being a good patient, I followed up with my ophthalmologist yesterday and he took a thorough look at my eye and agrees that it’s some type of infection, but not pink eye. Yay. I think.
“So, what do I have?”
Glad I didn’t have to pay a copay for that answer.
The long and the short of it — he thinks that it’s residual from when I had pneumonia a couple of weeks back. I’m a little thick sometimes, but that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. And since I hold a lowly English/Com Sci degree what do I know.
Now why am I grateful for Uber. If you’ve ever used it, you know why. After my appointment, I got on my handy-dandy Uber app, scheduled a pick up, and a car was there in less than 5 minutes. Holla! If I called for a taxi, I might still be waiting for one to arrive.
Anyway, here are a few reasons why I’m grateful for Uber:
- Cheaper than a taxi (and by the way my taxi ride to the ophthalmologist without tip was $2.00 more than my total Uber ride)
- Less waiting time
- You get an estimate of the cost
- After the trip is over you get an email with the cost and a map
- For those tip challenged folks, you don’t have to figure out tip, as it’s already included
- You know who’s picking you up
