This happened. (at The Boombox)
I had the most amazing conversation with my Lyft driver this morning. I was hesitant at first; being late for work as usual, and once again refusing to take the bus. So when this older gentleman pulled into the driveway in a mini-van, after driving maybe 10 miles an hour down my street, I thought “here we go” as I got in.
When I gave him the route I wanted him to take, the same route I always give, he told me about how I can plug all that into the app now, effectively making any conversation between passenger and driver unnecessary… Okay- I can see this being helpful sometimes; in an Uber when I plan to sit in the back and don’t want to give directions, or when maybe drunkenly trying to get home on the weekend, but I always sit in the passenger seat when I Lyft, and in my opinion conversation is the best part. I told him as much, and he turned to me, smiled, and started to talk:
Such a sweet story. I love my Lyft drivers.
