Took an Uber last night. The driver will often text or call to confirm the pick up location. So, it's not unusual to receive text from the driver immediately after booking the ride. Last night's text from the driver was something like this: Hey, what's up man, this is Charles. Trying to get my mother's car to pass inspection. Do you know if I disconnect the battery if it will reset the smog CEL on my mother's car? I started to laugh. What a random text to send to a random uber rider. We drove a few miles and I asked him about the smog issue and told him the car's computer is on to that trick. He told me he had the sparkplugs and a coil replaced and the CEL reset and were in the hope and wait phase that the CEL stays off. I thought he was going to tell me he sent the text to me by accident but he didn't. I had to help another uber driver with a CEL while we were driving and the car went into jog mode and we limped to my destination. Wonder if there is some note about me that the uber drivers see. That'd be funny.
