Who among us has NEVER used Uber* at all? (I'm first.) ~


A brief overview: Uber, a U.S.-based online-accessed public transportation service, matches its drivers with potential customers who need rides, and the two parties rate each other to achieve probability of future use.  A majority of the drivers use their own private vehicles, while a small number of them lease vehicles from the company.

 
*The company's name is spelled without an umlaut because it was founded in the United States, a country where alphabet of the dominant language (English) does not feature umlauts. 


A. I, just like you, Randy D, have never been a customer of Uber.

B. I've only used their service once or twice, or only for receiving deliveries, but never as a passenger. 

C. I'm disqualified from answering because I use their service all the time.

D. Why can't you save me 15% on my auto insurance, Randall D?  Answer me that, you cad.

E.  I can't take time to answer right now; I'm busy creating an Uber account on my phone.

F.  I've never even heard of that company or its service before.

G. Two or more of the above, namely, _____________________________.

H. None of the above/other answer, namely, _____________________________.

    The closest place to me that has Uber is Fargo ND.  It's ~170 miles away so I never used it.

    It seems too much like hitchhiking to me.

    I've used Uber a few times with my friends in San Francisco. I also used it once in downtown Sac by myself.

    With stories "out there" don't feel safe.  Don't understand the risk I am taking with a stranger driving me around.

    My roommate had to use them before he got a car down here and they were great.  They don't cost much either and they have to arrive on time for you.

    But, they are going to go bankrupt.  It is inevitable.

    In a way. I see what is going on in the world, and have no desire to go some Norse country only to be attacked by some scum from the Middle East. I see the way the airlines treat passengers with less and less respect and more as just a cash cow. Traveling used to be a luxurious and wonderful experience. Now it's getting groped by a stranger before you ever get on a plane and then when you get there, it's essentially a prison barge to wherever.

    It's just not worth it.
