  • Me to driver: "It's really disrespectful & unprofessional to demand that your female customers pay for your mistakes." I didn't pay. #
  • Made it! #socialcurationsummit (@ Social Curation Summit w/ 3 others) #
  • This driver is a trip. He overshot where he needed 2 drop me off & is trying to charge me more for his mistake. I'm no dummy bro. Not paying #
  • What does renting a U-Haul truck have to slavery? Why would anyone think it's a good idea to have an ad w slaves in it on their trucks? #
  • Since I'm in traffic, have you seen those bizarre U-Hauls in BK with the ads on them talking about slavery w pic of slave? So inappropriate #
