Are You Happy?
A seemingly simple question, but rarely asked
I drive Uber, and I talk to roughly 100 people a week from all walks of life and backgrounds. The small talk is all the same, but most will sit in silence and not speak much at all.
When they first get in my car, I feel them out with simple questions about their morning or day. Then I kind of go from there to see if they are up for conservation on their commute.
