digital hygiene

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel << I’m considering my citibike tech problem and my 129 NJT bus trip this AM to Uber in Secaucus digital hygiene. If I were homeless and obviously sleeping on the street I might get kicked out of cafes for poor hygiene, and if I did not take the citibike and uber time yesterday and today I’d have consequences. At Uber today I learned: ONE: I should have had an appointment, but the man telling me I needed an appointment answered my questions TWO: uber no longer lets me ubereats bike or walk delivery in two states. I’m required to pick a state iow I can’t deliver in NYC and Hoboken though a half decade ago I was allowed THREE: choosing vehicle status: walk, and bicycling is great bc the walk trips are short . . but it’s prohibited, and if detected the driver is warned, and if the violation continues . . . then DQed. I plan to continue the walk-bike trick, but I’ll go deliberately slow. I sense the industry is favoring hyperlocal, and I much prefer shorter trips. Por supuesto, the pay is better, and in addition it feels smarter. Taking chinese food from Union Square through Chinatown, to delivery in the Financial District is dumb, and it feels dumb. >> Tom Doody
