This is some revisionist history unless you’re specifically referring to a densely populated city that you can hail a cab. Before Uber/Lyft, if you weren’t in an urban core like Chicago or New York, you had to call the cab company and they would maybe show up in 30-60 minutes, not call you when they got there, and leave.

With Uber/Lyft you have a driver and know when they’re coming via the app and you can communicate with them. I’d pay more for that alone. Too many nights at a bar, calling a cab, and getting some BS “they’ll be outside in an hour” only to never hear back or get a cab.

It’s been proven time and again that healthy relationships can increase your mood and even your lifespan compared to being alone. Humans were meant to be in packs.

But, they have to be positive relationships.
