(00:00):
Mo John on the morning show.So I had to take an Uber to
work today because my car was here, and so I had kind of a
weird thing happened to me. Ihad to call for an Uber and get
the Uber at four forty five am. So it sounds like, okay,
are there going to even be anyubers out at that time? And if

(00:21):
not, I was pretty much gonnasay, all right, I gotta like
have my son or something, youknow, let me borrow his car or
whatever. But I called for theUber. The Uber comes and picks me
up. And when the Uber cameto pick me up, and do you
have any Uber drivers listening this morning, maybe driving to the airport or doing
something, do you guys just automaticallyassume that the people who are getting ubers

(00:43):
that early in the morning but arenot going to the airport are criminals.
Because I got in the car andI figured I better talk to the guy
right away, which I always doanyway. I love talking to the Uber
drivers, and so I figured Ibetter start talking to him, otherwise he's
going to act kind of weird.And when I put in the address,
it doesn't come up on the Uberas the radio station I had to just

(01:04):
put the actual physical address in there, so he had no idea where the
hell he was going when he wasdriving me. And as we were driving,
he looked at me and he goesthrough his rear view mare. I
could see his eyes piercing at me, and he goes, you do something
legal, And I said legal likea lawyer, and he goes, no,
like not illegal. And I saidto him, I go, ha,

(01:27):
no, well, I know,yeah, I do a legal thing.
I mean I think it's kind oflegal. And he goes, you
delivering something to somebody, and I'mgoing, wait a second, I think
this guy thinks I'm a drug dealer, like I think he's thinking I'm going
to because you know, it's notlike our radio station is in a sketchy
area of town. But be honestwith you, it might be middle of
nowhere. Actually, it's not reallylike a place that you would, you

(01:49):
know, randomly go to at fourforty five in the morning. Right.
Yeah. Usually when you're le pickingup and going somewhere at four forty five
in the morning, and it's notthe airport, you're usually going to A
the hospital, B, the airportor c to do a drug deal in
Farmington Hills or it's like, youdon't want to do the walk of shame,
so you do the uber of shame. Take an uber home from whoever's

(02:13):
house you spent the night at.You know. Yeah, so I had
the by the way, just donethat. It was awkward the way through.
And we're driving to the station andthe station's only like fifteen minutes away
or twenty minutes away with a littlebit of traffic, and there was a
little bit this morning, and aswe're driving, the conversation got, oh,

(02:35):
okay, so what do you do? And I told them eventually what
I did. I go listen.I'm a you know, morning radio and
stuff. And the guy actually justmoved here, so he had no clue
anything about our show, so hewas not, you know, a person
that had you know, ever listenedto any of our stations or iHeart or
any of that stuff. Guy waslike sitting there telling me all the thing
he's like going into is what helistens to. And I said, what

(02:59):

and I'm like, there is classicalalternative rock and he starts naming artist.
I have no fing clue about Ihave no clue, and I'm looking
around his car and stuff and I'mlike, going, okay, you know,
the guy keeps it kind of clean, so this is a nice ride.
I don't want to upset him,so tell me a little bit about
your music. And he starts playingme his music and I'm like, oh,

is Uber Christina. So okay,so you usually pick up like kids going
to school. Yeah, It's crazyhow parents will send their kids to school
and they don't really like still usetheir account, so I never know it's
the school. I just dropped somebodyoff at school, like literally, I'm

she stole them. I had nevereven worn them or anything like that.
How does she get in your trunk? Well, she had a bunch of
bags. She was coming from athrift store. She had two little kids
with her, So I let heruse my trunk because she had a traps
and of bags. And when Idropped her off at the other thirst store,

(08:41):
I thought to myself, like,yeah, I should probably check my
trunks because she looked kind of sketchy, And yeah, she definitely stole them.
I had to call the police.Nothing ever came of it. I
never got my money back or mybelongings back. I don't know where that's
the worst grands. Other than that, it's good. I really don't have

(09:03):
any bad ones. You almost haveto have, honestly, the person the
uber passenger, when they get outand put something in your trunk, you
have to get out with them tosee it, because otherwise they're gonna take
whatever they got back there. Danwhat's going on? How you doing all

was blocked off by cops when Ipulled him the gas stition. You got
my contacted. Do we know ifthe guy got caught. I don't know
