My Two Cents: I Was An Uber Driver

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – After I sold my business in 2012, my wife and I bought a downtown Nashville condo so we could spend some time in the “Music City.”  After all, it was slowly becoming the “it” city and there was plenty to do.  Even for us old folks.

I had started to get bored with basically nothing to do, when I read an article in the Nashville paper about “Cab drivers upset over Uber.”

I thought, “what the hell is Uber?”

Once I googled Uber, I thought, “That’s a hell of an idea.”  “I could do that.”  So, I filled out an online application and they called me back the very next morning.

My days as an Uber driver.
