I had tickets to see Star Wars last night. I’ve had these tickets since November 9th. I’m not exactly a super fan (read: I don’t own any light sabers and my hair is too short to do the Princess Leia buns), but I do thoroughly enjoy the first three movies. (The second set? Meh.) So, I was very excited to go.
Then my daughter got hit by a tram. Luckily, it was pulling into a stop and so wasn’t going fast and she only ended up with two badly sprained ankles and a trip to the emergency room. So, while my friends were enjoying Star Wars, I was in the emergency room. Here’s what I learned.
Uber is the best thing ever.
We live in Switzerland, where public transportation is awesome. We don’t own a car. The tram stop is a mere 3-minute walk from our house. But, when you have two injured ankles, that is not a pleasant trip. Taxis in Switzerland cost a bloomin’ fortune, and I didn’t want to call a friend because then this poor person would feel obligated to sit with us at the hospital. So, I downloaded the Uber app and requested a car. Four minutes from clicking “order” to the Uber driver being at my door-and we live in the suburbs.
