Uber People

Early morning and I am sitting on Congress st waiting for a rider.  At 6:30 I have already taken my first rider and I am drinking an ice coffee from the Speckeled Ax.  Itis a new designer coffee place that has popped up.  I wonder how many people will pay $3.oo plus for a cup of coffee.  This time of the morning you get the homeless who try to get to the trash bins early to glean any returnable bottles that might have been missed.  A young female runner passes an old man in a motorized wheelchair.  The man stops and wheels the chair around to catch a glimpse of her comely ass.  He smiles and imagines better days.  A man gets out of a Jeep to go in for coffee.  He is in a suit and tie and he expresses his coolness but wearing no socks.  Others walk by hurring to start their days with the ever present smart phone attached to their ears.
