Speechless

Updated: Mar 31




I had an Uber client in my car yesterday, who was so grief stricken she could not talk…, at all. She actually did her best to conceal her emotions with a blank facial expression.


After some 27 years in the industry as a cab driver and now an Uber driver I have learned to read peoples language through facial expressions and body language. It has been my experience to not just see, but to feel their energy. In that confined of a space it's hard not to.


It was my honor to give her the space that she needed to just get home. All I said to her was hello and thank you.


The next day, PBS News Hour showed this article. A Brief But Spectacular take on crying in public: https://www.pbs.org/video/a-brief-but-spectacular-take-on-crying-in-public-1711494468/

Looking forward to more of these, Larry. This was a gift to her.
