I am sitting in the band concert, where I was able to see and hear all three of my son’s numbers. And thanks to Uber, he was able to make it to the concert, though he was running a bit late.
First of all, Adam got caught in traffic after working in Ocala. Bad. William called me about 25 minutes before he was supposed to be at the school, which is about two miles from the house. Adam was at least 40 minutes away. I was stuck at work until the concert was scheduled to start.
Plus, his black dress pants were nowhere to be found…
So, from my Galaxy S4, I managed to talk the kids through a solution. Not a great one, but he made it… dressed in his older sister’s black pants, and my old work shoes. But hey, he’s in the back hiding in the trombone section…
Uber got him and his older sister safely there in about 15-20 minutes. And I was able to watch their progress from my phone. And it was free, because I used a promotional code from Adam, who gets a $5 kickback.
It would have cost $8.55 without the code. Not bad for crisis aversion.
Hey, Uber’s offering new drivers up to $100 to get started. Sign up and learn more here: https://partners.uber.com/drive/?invite_code=9zgul
They do stringent background checks on all of their drivers.
And I really, really need an 8-5 job.
