There seems to be a certain stigma when it comes to the occupation of driver, a role reserved in the minds of many for Cleopatra-smoking, lib-eating, Mickey-Mouse-sticker-donning, lower class men - but why? Cruising round all day, meeting new people, and getting mad cash for doing it? Sounds like fun.
With that in mind, we signed up a few members of our team; Eihab Boraie, Ahmad Abi, Ranya Oweida, and Yahia El Sady to drive around the city with private car service Careem for a day. We set up cameras in their cars and asked them to experience first hand, what it's like to be a driver. Let's just say it was a hard task getting them back to work at the office. Check out what went down...
P.S. We teamed up with Careem to give away our readers 50% off on rides all month on the app. Just use the promocode CareemScene.
