"A little over a month ago, my friends and I were leaving the south howard bars and needed a safe ride home. Of course, we called an Uber and they arrived in a timely manner. When we got to our destination, I was on my way out of the car and felt something and grabbed it. I didn't even notice what I picked up until we were all out of the Uber. I had found someone's wedding band set! This situation was even crazier considering my parents are jewelers so they took a look at it and confirmed it was all authentic. I had contacted Uber directly and let them know who my driver was and what date it was so they can see who else had used the same driver that night. Your company, Uber, found the owner of the ring and I had personally given back their belongings to them. They were very gracious, kind and thankful for this act of kindness. This is my story and I hope Uber stays here in the Tampa Bay area yet alone Florida!"
