Usually I take the Metro home from work, but sometimes when I stay late I spring for an Uber. Earlier this week when I opened up the app and requested a ride after a long day, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.
It was an UberPOOL, and it turned out to be a minivan with two other riders. When I got in, I immediately noticed that something was different.
Had I unwittingly boarded one of EVA Air’s specially themed planes? It was pretty much Ben’s dream Uber – all decked out in Hello Kitty swag!
There was also a tip jar which, while not specifically Hello Kitty-themed, at least conformed with the color scheme. (Though nowadays I just tip through the app anyway.)
I wasn’t sure whether I felt kind of silly with my head pressed up against a kitty headrest or if it was the most awesome thing ever.
Kudos to the driver for making an extra effort to give passengers a memorable ride!
Has anyone else ever taken a themed Uber? What was it like?
