Going to a sporting event - at which some adult beverages may be consumed - so decided hired transportation was the way to go.
However, the last time we did that, it was a $70 cab ride!
That was almost (almost) as much as we spent on those adult beverages.
So this time we decided to experiment and see what all the fuss was about and try Über.
But is that such an unusual concept, to know what something costs before you buy it?
In what other industry - besides the taxi industry - do you only find out what something costs after you get there?
What if you were flying to Cancun and you ask air Canada, "What's the price of the flight?" and she answers you, "Well, you'll find out after we get there. Like everybody else."
"Could be headwinds, the price of gas, how many other people are on board."
What if you go to a nice restaurant and you ask, "How much is the sirloin?"
"Buddy, you'll find out at the end of the meal."
So after these two experiences (including the ride back - although the little girl driver we had on the way back might not think it is such a great job....) - bye bye cabbies.
This is one destructive technology that ain't going away.
Oh yeah, and about that best part. The $70 cab ride was now.......$16.
That's über duper!
