Unable to drive for three months because of a medical issue, I called up a ride service, Go Go Grandparent, yesterday. The voice on the phone gave me the car make and color and the driver’s name and said it would arrive in two minutes. And by golly it did.
What amused me was the slow, deliberate way the voice delivered the information. There must have been two seconds between each word. There was no way I could have misunderstood or forgotten the message. It’s an excellent service and engineered for convenience to the senior consumer. My credit card is registered with them and so no money need exchange hands. Furthermore — and I didn’t know this before hand — they reported the ride to my nephew as a precaution.
Precaution for what I don’t know.
Ah, America, always the entrepreneur.
