Wanted to use @gocurb

Wanted to use @gocurb, the taxi app, to book our ride to the airport tomorrow, but it kept throwing errors. Lyft worked. Sigh.

I’ve tried the riide app, which is the only way to book a cab from my favorite cab company here in MSP. App says, "driver is there." He’s miles away at a completely different address. No way to cancel the ride or contact anyone to get it sorted out.

Ride-sharing has pretty much killed taxis, and left no real alternative. Go disruptive tech!

Oh, I hate them. Just doesn’t do much good. I guess next time I’ll try ihail. Or maybe I’ll be able to find a cab company that still has a human answering the phone.
