See now this is why they call being an Uber driver a "side hustle"!

Same as people who give out all their personal information and pix on Facebook for the world to see.

I'm sure that's what I would do if I lived in a single house. Although the safest places are a local police station, a fire station, or a hospital, if you live within walking distance of one.

Simplest solution would be to meet the uber on the corner of the street or at least a few houses away. Or buy good homeowner's insurance and accept that there is always a risk and best course is not to sweat about it.

If nobody interacted with strangers, how would people even meet and form new connections? The "stranger" argument is ridiculous. Obviously, you can't go around blindly trusting everybody, but still.
