Pro Tip: Get Your Babysitter Home Safe

Kid Drives Uber

Uber can take care of your babysitter after you take a night off from the kids!

If I didn’t love Uber enough already, I just discovered yet another reason to.  In anticipation of our return home, our babysitter called a cab to take her home – I hadn’t told her about Uber yet.  When we got back, she said she had been waiting 30 minutes for said cab – typical for a Saturday night in SF.  Then it occurred to me, I can use Uber!

Part of the deal is that we cover transportation for our sitters, but after a few cocktails, I wasn’t about to drive her myself.  I made the request and 8 minutes later she was riding in style.  She sent a text to let me know it was a 5-star experience and that she was home safe and sound.  A hassle-free no-brainer for safe sitter return.  Thanks Uber.
