From the time we’re young, we’re taught that competition is a good thing. We compete in school to get better grades so that we can go to a good college, we compete in athletics to try and win games and show off our prowess on the court and on the field, we compete at nearly everything from eating to science and all that comes in between. If you watch a room full of people for a little while, it’s likely you’re going to see some form of competition going on at all times whether it’s being able to tell the best stories or being able to drink the most during the time spent in the evening together.
For some reason there are those in our midst who have started to think of ride sharing services as long distance travel options for them to take wherever they want to go. While a ride in your neighborhood using Uber can be inexpensive and easy for you to afford, going outside your city or county could be a costly way to use Uber, Lyft or any other ride sharing service to get where you want to go. In some cases, this may feel like the only option, but the problem may be chalked up to a new problem; Uber dependency.
Whenever a new movie is scheduled to release in theaters a variety of industries work to try and grab their share of the fun and enjoyment by offering their own products and services that are themed after the movie. This is especially true and fairly easy when it comes to movies such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel Avengers and any other movie that warrants the use of action figures. While the toy industry and related product arenas can easily capture some of the benefits from these new movie openings, one industry that may be a bit challenged to do so is the ride sharing industry.
