Uber dispute becomes permanent uber – The Denver Post

Dear Amy: “Glenda” and I have been friends for 43 years. Glenda and her sister “Brenda” are twins – and I’m friends with both!

Glenda’s 60th birthday was approaching. After months of pandemic deliberation and restrictions, we decided that a small group would be heading to a local casino for brunch and some fun.

Glenda, Brenda and I were in the plan. Glenda wanted to invite two friends but didn’t want her sister to invite anyone. However, Brenda and I have a mutual friend that we wanted to include. (All of these people were at my wedding, and we’ve all been friends for over 35 years).

We were going to take an Uber to take us so we could have more fun, but with Covid we were going to have to take two Uber’s and meet there. No problem, right?

Well, Glenda said it would NOT work. She insisted on going together and partying along the way.

Well you can’t drink at Ubers so partying on the way was out of the question.

We argued on the phone about the extra person her sister and I had invited.

She started the comment: “I thought you were MY friend and it’s MY birthday you’re ruining.”

She kept forgetting that she is a twin and that I am friends with both!

Amy, she said our friendship was over! Our friendship is over because of an Uber ride?

I miss Glenda and still make great friends with Brenda, but Glenda and I have a longer history.
