Delightfully well-meaning grandma doesn’t understand how Uber worksOn January 2, 2018 by Kenna
Remember a time before Uber? Your grandma does, and she’s more pure than this world will ever be again.
Especially reddit user ck2400’s grandma, who presented her grandchild with a 2018 weekly pocket planner because she “thought this would be good for your Uber appt’s.”
Not quite how Uber works, but incredibly sweet.
Sure, Uber’s app can keep track of your bookings, past trips and rider profile because we’re pretty incapable of logging anything for ourselves at this point. But this gift, seen in an image posted to reddit, is the essence of pure, if not slightly misinformed, thoughtfulness.
After posting the image, folks actually warmed to grandma’s vision of Uber, and were quick to suggest methods of incorporating the planner into Uber vehicles.
Some thought the kindness of the gesture was more important than understanding Uber, ya jerks:
Others shared similar experiences with their grandparents and newer technology:
While others empathised with the whole “kids today” concept:
Yep, keeping up with technology is not easy, so show some respect, kids. And receiving a gift from your grandma is something to be cherished, even if she doesn’t quite have a handle on Uber yet.
