Oh and loads of foreign ones not liking it because they are expected to have a conversation with the customer rather than sit in silence.
This is my fear of Uber. I do not want to have a conversation with you. Leave me alone you thicket.
I once had one recite this elaborate theory of world politics. See he'd realised that we were all just one big family, The US was the father, the EU was the Mother, The Middle East was the uncle or some shit and then he set about describing the dynamics of the family to me as a metaphor for global diplomacy - "Now see Mum and Dad don't like it when Uncle comes over drunk and spoils the BBQ ..." and so and and fucking so on, me head down in my phone the entire time. The story must have gone on for 15 mins as that was the length of my trip and he wrapped it up as I was getting out.
Fast forward 9 months, i'm getting into a cab at the start of a night out, the cab driver turns to me and says "you know everything that's happening in the world today is easy to understand if you think of the major players as one big family ..."
