I used to avoid uberpool because I hate small talk, but since it’s so ridiculously cheap in LA, I have taken it a few times and here’s my most “interesting” conversation with Fellow Pooler A.
A: How’s your day?
Me: Pretty good. And you?
A: Tiring, I teach little kids chess and it was a long day.
Me: Oh, do you only teach kids?
A: Do you play chess too?
Me:… I don’t really do chess
A: Oh, I thought when you asked if I only taught kids, you wanted to know if I could teach you too. Yeah I teach adults too. We can play a game sometime
Me: Um, I don’t actually know any techniques
A: You could blindfold me and we could play a game
Me: *hurriedly changes topic*
