Technology has just one person, to simplify the human effort. Human life also has one ambition, to complicate everything it possibly can. So we have come up with apps and stuff, but whenever you hand it over to humans, they manage to make even the simplest of things complicated. Ola and Uber work fine, but Ola and Uber drivers, not so much!
Has it ever happened that you booked a cab, it is barely a minute or so away, then the driver calls you up, asks you "Where to miss?", You want to say "To the stars" but answer with Hauz Khaz and then he cuts the call and cancels your ride. Did you do something wrong or did Hauz Khaz do something wrong? Some answers we will never get.
Then why can we never spot you? This is the most annoying thing. Somehow the location you put never truly takes these drivers to you and you are endlessly struggling between public landmarks with famous and easy to pronounce logos.
See if they are actually good they get it, but you cannot make us walk to "your location" and not ours and expect the same. Period!
We get it that digital India is a far off call, but please, we cannot carry so much loose cash and coins with us.
But, uhm, this is the part of the ride no? Then why the extra incentive? Not cool. Work hard for extra bucks.
Because, YOLO. Nobody believes in it more than them, if they don’t want to then they don’t have to, simple!
Okay, we will not be mean to them about this one, but yeah, sometimes it does put us off!
You call them to ask how long will they take because the car keeps on somersaulting on the map and they simply reply with "on my way", yes, we can see that but where is your way? The map is confusing us, sir, which is why we are retorting to the solace in your voice.
Dude, come on you can wait for atleast a minute or so? Not like you have buses to burn with other political parties or urban naxals.
There are days when you leave with a lot of time to spare on your hands and there are certain days here, even 1-minute wait can make us cranky. Somehow the cab you get on a day you are getting late needs to be refueled. You contemplate such harsh realities of life as you stand there in the Petrol Pump.
