    I ran into this with UberX a couple days ago at LAX. The driver called and told me he needed to pick me up in the parking deck, since drivers were getting fined left and right. It was pretty funny at the time…he talked about it for a while, and said the exact same stuff that article mentioned.

    I saw that show with that fat slob CEO running Choice. The show didn’t make him look bad at all – he was simply incompetent and hadn’t known a hard days work in his life. But when you are the bosses son who owns a lousy motel, er hotel chain, you can get away with it.
