Pro Tip: Get Your Babysitter Home Safe
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.

A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go.

We caught up with the man in front of the cam to learn more about what inspired him to create this feel-good video.
