When you hail a cab or an Uber, you never know what you’re getting into. 9 times out of 10, the driver doesn’t want any conversation, they’re just praying that they didn’t pick up some creep. For one girl in Ohio, she realized her Uber driver wasn’t a normal Joe Schmo, but an internet OG. The AOL “You’ve Got Mail” Guy…
First off, what a conversation starter. I wonder if he starts the ride with this, or if he uses this as a lifeline. When things aren’t going so hot, you drop the line and everything is hunky dory. Anybody who used the internet in the 90’s will appreciate that voice, his Uber rating must be through the roof.
I commend Elwood Edwards for riding this phrase til the wheels fall off, but God help the passenger who is with him when he reaches his “You’ve Got Mail” tipping point.
