In many places this would definitely not count as "Insignificant," but in the South it's not so clear.
I'm just a bit envious that you live in an area that features shared rides with Lyft/Uber. We don't have that in DFW yet. (Unless you include the Blue Van company and similar, but they only go to/from airports.)

This is great. Why would anybody take a limo? What is this, like $12? Why would anybody pay more than $12 to go to the airport? Next stop: LAX.

Oh, come on. We’re stopping again? How many more stops are we going to make?

Honestly, I haven’t even seen this part of Los Angeles. Is that snow? Really now. This is ridiculous. I paid 12 American dollars.

Couple: guy + girl or 2 girls???? If 2 girls, then.

Guy + girl. I thanked them for their offer but told them I wasn't into "that stuff." They were not amused, but the Lyft driver was

A guy offered me his seat today on the bus. He also smiled, but not in a creepy way.

I went to a restaurant wearing a sports team polo and the hostess told me she was a die-hard sports team fan. She asked me who my favorite player was and I named 3, and she said she named two of her dogs after those players.
Then I ordered AYCE wings.

sports team state <> restaurant state

I'm literally picturing a shirt that says "sports team" and now I really want to get that shirt custom made.
