When a dog-loving Twitter user ordered a ride with Uber recently, she felt like a lottery winner. Why? Because she received this text: “Hello! This is your Uber driver. I just wanted to let you know I have my service dog with me.”
She texted back “that sounds great” and waited for her ride with much anticipation. Her photo of the encounter quickly went viral.
Service dog Bullet, Uber copilot
When the Uber arrived, she got the pleasure of meeting her canine copilot, a pomsky named Bullet. She was even lucky enough to get permission to pet the little dog. Day = made.
Her tweet about this experience has racked up a quarter million likes in a matter of days. The comments on her post range from joy, to jealousy, to comedy.
The comedic response
It may be an ableist opinion – but I don't think they should let blind people be Uber drivers.
Who knows? Maybe your next rideshare will include a dog.
