How Uber rescued me in Auckland

Post by CirLott » Mon Sep 04, 2023 10:22 pm

I couldn't believe my luck. I was in Auckland, New Zealand, and I had a flight to catch in just a couple of hours. The problem was, I had lost all track of time exploring the stunning sights of the city, and now I was dangerously close to missing my flight. My heart raced as I rushed out of the Auckland Museum, realizing I had no choice but to call an Uber. :o

With trembling fingers, I tapped the Uber app and prayed for a quick pickup - . As I waited, I couldn't help but think of all those travel nightmares where people miss their flights and end up stranded in a foreign country. I was determined not to become a character in one of those stories.

Minutes felt like hours, and just when I thought my luck couldn't get any worse, the app showed me that my driver was named Bruce. I couldn't help but chuckle at the thought of a Kiwi superhero coming to my rescue. Maybe he'd have a cape and everything.

My savior in a Toyota Corolla finally pulled up to the curb. I practically dove into the car, apologizing profusely for my tardiness. Bruce just chuckled and said in a thick Kiwi accent, "No worries, mate. We'll get you there in a jiffy."

I looked at my watch and cringed. "I've got less than an hour to make it to the airport. Can we make that happen, Captain Uber?"

Bruce revved the engine and sped off down the streets of Auckland with all the confidence of a seasoned rally driver. It was like being in a Fast and Furious movie, only with a much more polite and less Vin Diesel-like driver.

As we raced around the city, Bruce told me about his favourite places in Auckland, his favourite fish and chip place, and how he once helped a lost tourist find his way to Hobbiton, and how he sometimes plays at online casinos, choosing only from the quality ones on this New Zealand site - I couldn't help but relax as we chatted; it was like catching up with an old friend. :)

We hit a bit of traffic, but Bruce skillfully navigated his way through the gridlock with a few clever shortcuts. He even managed to make me laugh as he imitated the seagulls that were dive-bombing tourists for their fish and chips.

Finally, we arrived at the airport with what felt like minutes to spare. I scrambled out of the car, thanking Bruce for his incredible driving skills and good company.

With a grin, he handed me my bags and said, "No worries, mate. You'll make that flight. And if you don't, there's always the next one."

I sprinted into the terminal, barely making it to the gate in time. As I settled into my seat, I couldn't help but think that my Auckland Uber adventure had been the most exciting part of my trip. Thanks to Bruce, I had a story to tell and a newfound appreciation for Kiwi hospitality. Auckland, you may have tried to make me miss my flight, but you didn't count on Captain Uber coming to the rescue!
