“Can Someone Call the Uber?,” Asks Friend Who Never Calls the Uber
VANDERSLICE PARKING LOT — Before departing to enjoy a dinner out with her friends at Tavern in the Square, junior Alex Solomon (CSOM ’22) was heard asking if someone could “call the Uber” to the local Brighton restaurant, despite several reports from her friends that Solomon has not once ever volunteered to call the Uber herself.
“Every time we go out, she’s always like, ‘Can someone call the Uber?’ And never does she even consider the possibility of calling it herself,” said Sam Parker (MCAS ‘22) Solomon’s direct roommate. I know for a FACT she has both Uber and Lyft, and yet she never offers to call it for everyone. One time I tried to subtly suggest that maybe she could call it this time, and without hesitating she told me her app wasn’t working. So typical of her.”
Solomon seemed unphased after the Classic relayed the allegations and pressed her for comment. “I don’t see what the big deal is,” Solomon said. “I mean I totally would have called the Uber earlier tonight, but my phone ran out of battery or I had bad service or something. Besides, I always tell whoever does call it to Venmo request me, like, almost always right away, so it really shouldn’t be an issue.”
It remains unclear as to whether Solomon’s behavior will continue as the Fall 2020 semester draws near a close.
At press time, Solomon was seen asking if any of her roommates would be able to make a quick trip to Res to pick up a few bottles of wine, despite Solomon herself being 21 years old and not busy in the slightest.
