Steven Roy Grimsley only wants to make extra money when he becomes an Uber driver in Knoxville, Tennessee.
What he isn't expecting is the joy that comes from getting to know strangers who he would have otherwise never met.
In this rider-by-rider narrative, he takes you on an adventure that begins Halloween night, runs through the University of Tennessee football season, and ends during the hot days of summer.
Grimsley recalls driving nearly 100 riders, including sorority girls, 90-year-old dinner dates, strippers, Halloween space aliens, seizure victims, homeless women, waitresses, and businesspeople. To his surprise, all are gracious, sweet, and, in many cases, truly fascinating characters.
He also shares a behind-the-scenes look at what it means to work for Uber and addresses the public's common concerns. In particular, he shares his experiences in dealing with the intoxicated and downright dangerous individuals.
Join the author as he shares thrilling adventures that earned him extra cash while exposing him to a multitude of people in a southern college town in Stars in My Car.
