A few weeks ago, I was seriously ill and needed to go to the emergency room. I couldn't make it to the train, so I tried to hail a cab, but was so depleted that my city hustle failed me and another person grabbed it. I decided to Uber. The fact that it was under three minutes away from where I was standing, doing my best not to die in midtown, was its most alluring feature. When the car arrived, I was as calm as possible so as not to panic the driver.
