The CEO is Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, took to the streets as Uber Eats delivery person in late June. He posted the experience and some of his earnings on his Twitter profile, amid praise and criticism — some pointed out the importance of the act, while others highlighted the income disparity between the executive and the typical app deliverer.
Now, in an interview with the newspaper The New York Times, Khosrowshahi recounted more details of the experience, saying he was nervous and “almost killed” when he made a delivery near the San Francisco baseball stadium, which is heavily trafficked for a game.
“The Giants Game [time de São Francisco] it was starting, and the traffic was insane. My hypothesis is that someone knew I’m a Mets fan [time de Nova York]”, he told the newspaper. in a joking tone.
Despite this, the case portrays part of the risks involved in deliveries and delivery, especially for cyclists, a modality that Khosrowshahi chose to carry out his deliveries throughout the city.
Khosrowshahi spent the two days of the weekend making deliveries and admitted that Sunday was a little worse than Saturday and that he had little time to rest, spending most of his time in traffic. Asked if anyone recognized him, Khosrowshahi replied that he did not and that this is “the benefit of wearing a mask”.
