I have been an Uber user since 2014. Has it just been 3 years? Well, I felt it was longer to be honest – why? Because I don’t usually commute here in the country. I drive a car and I like driving – even if its traffic. I took my first ride last 2014. I even documented it on this post – My first Uber ride. I racked up credits from that first Uber ride and when it ran out, I still preferred and used Uber ALL THE TIME. I need to emphasize that I am an Uber user. I love Uber. I love how convenient it is. I don’t need to drive, I don’t need to worry about having an empty gas tank while stuck in traffic. I don’t need to stress myself thinking of where to park and a whole lot more. It’s so convenient really. At first, I thought – what was Uber’s end game? I really didn’t understand the concept to be honest – it was for me just an app I could use to transport me to places. At first, it didn’t dawn on me the conveniences that I had been experiencing. I took the convenience for granted. When Uber was suspended months ago – it was only then that I appreciated what Uber really was to me. Last year when we came back from a trip, we were not picked up by the driver because of miscommunication on the time. We were worried because we had luggages, big luggages, we had two kids in tow – and my Panget initially thought to just hire a taxi right there and then. I told him no – I told him, I’d try and book an Uber. We were very lucky because I was able to book us an Uber Black – successfully. And you know what else? Well, I left my phone on that Uber ride. And guess what – I got my phone back the next day. And I posted this on my blog too – The goodness of an Uber Driver because I was so proud and happy. THIS IS WHY I UBER. Uber has been my partner in transport since 2014 and I am with them ALL THE WAY. I will support them and help them in anyway I can because I believe in their vision.
Here is an video made by Uber. Watch it and realize that – hey, this happens in real life – especially here in the Philippines! The video makes perfect sense. It’s funny but it’s reality.
