UBER CHRONICLES: THE VAPES

This morning I had an Uber driver who sounded to be breathing irregularly. Now I find myself with another driver breathing similarly, so I wonder if they have been taking advantage of my blindness to use vape pens with which they are ingesting the pot, Mary Jane, reefer, Shuggie Otis, or whatever the kids are calling it these days.

Uber Chronicles: Adventure With Deborah

I ordered the Uber when I arrived. I tried to contact the driver only to find that the option to call him was not available; I could only send him a text. I informed him that I was visually impaired and standing by the curb. Just to make sure, I also told him that visually impaired meant that I could not see.
