You can either sit quietly in an Uber staring at your phone and hoping the driver doesn't talk to you or—hold on, there's another option?
Well yeah, apparently some people are so willing to make small talk in their app-cabs that they actually hope the relationship moves from small talk to medium talk to pillow talk.
And because live-tweeted dating misadventures are the world's fastest growing literary genre, you can now enjoy this tale, tweeted by @KelliAmirah, about her Uber pickup turned hopeful hookup. Get a cup of coffee, sit back, and get into it.
This is a classic George Costanza move, and it's called "the leave-behind."
"If there's any doubt, I do a leave-behind," says George in the 142nd (!!!) episode of Seinfeld. "Keys, gloves, scarf—I go back to her place to pick it up. Date number two."
@KelliAmirah executes it perfectly, but with a modern twist: the charger.
At this point, all she wants is her charger back. But this is high drama. And in any great novel, once Checkhov's charger is introduced, it must return later in the story.
Now she's thinking she'll get the charger and possibly connect with this guy. Is she getting cocky? Will Kelli hook up with the Uber driver and charge her phone? Stay tuned to find out!
This would have been a perfect ending. We'd be left to wonder how the date went, if they were perfect for each other, and if they'd have an incredible story to tell their kids one day. But of course, no.
