I’m flying to New Jersey for a wedding (Friday) and will be flying in and out of Philadelphia. I’m planning on skipping a rental car and relying on Uber or Lyft instead. The wedding is in nearby Mount Laurel NJ.

(I would never have considered such a thing with a taxi except flying in and out of New York where the cab drivers are uniformly good at what they do. Oakland? Lol. Philadelphia? Omfg are you insane?)

My neighbor drives for both companies and despite what the news would have you believe she likes the money and loves to have a captive audience to talk at so she’s got no complaints. I’m her mind it’s easy money.

What’s the deal? Are working for these companies that bad really? Is one truly better than the other? As a customer it’s all the same to me. What’s it like as a driver?
