The solution to all our cab-to-curb problems, Uber, is currently circulating a petition to ask DOTC Secretary Jun Abaya to approve ridesharing (adult carpooling) in the country. (See it HERE.) It got us thinking about just how much the service means to us. Below, the five ways the upscale ride has changed our lives.
1. THE CHAUFFEURS ARE GENTLEMEN.
Unlike some boys we know, they open the door for you.
2. YOU CAN GO TO THE FASHION SHOW - AND THE AFTERPARTY.
... and not have to worry whether you'll get home safe. Before you even get inside the car, you see what you’re riding, and who’s driving. You can send the plate number as well as the driver’s details to your mom to stop her from worrying about how you will get home from a late night run at 71 Gram.
3. NO SUCH THING AS CAB-TO-CURB HEELS ANYMORE.
As P'Trique once said, these are cab to curb heels only. Now we don't have to flail our capelet-ed arms at the taxi driver to make sure we get to Fashion Week on time.
4. YOU CAN GO CASHLESS.
Which is the state fashion girls are always in, anyway - We've either cleaned out our wallets to buy cute hosiery we saw on the way out of the store, or two Instagram-worthy scoops of gelato. Once you’ve created an account with your credit card deets, it’s seriously a matter of hopping in and out. You never have to worry about rude drivers who either pretend they don’t have change or cheat you with their meter machine. There are even times when riding an Uber comes out cheaper.
5. BLACK (CARS) GO WITH EVERYTHING.
From our Chloe tent dress to our ripped denim jeans, you know we like to arrive in style.
