My car broke so I needed to use Uber to get to and from work. I was working late and quickly booked an Uber. As I ran down the stairs (the Uber was only 2 minutes away) I wondered when they had changed the car icon to a larger car. I messaged the driver to let him know I was standing on the very quiet pavement.
It was only when he pulled up that I realised I had somehow managed to order an Uber Van even though the UberX and UberVan buttons are on opposite sides of the app. The driver burst out laughing. I had accidentally ordered a party bus for one.
I ended up cancelling it because even with the R75 cancellation fee it was still cheaper to get home in a regular Uber. I wonder if my rating has gone down because of this? In related news, I’ve found a really cool site that gives you Uber fare estimates (whether you want an UberVan , X or Black) plus find out what score you need to beat the newest 16-year-old Tertis champ and more this week’s Bytesized.
???David Schwimmer doppelganger robs a store
In September Blackpool Police were on the hunt for a suspect that looked a lot like David Schwimmer.
This news reached the star and he responded in the best way possible.
What’s with people saying they might delete a picture? If you’re going to delete it then either don’t post it in the first place or just delete it without telling anyone about it. Channel Nike and just do it.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
