“Elon is a genius bro,” said my Uber driver, who rents a Tesla from Hertz for $360/wk, drives 7-days straight, saves $100/wk in gas, earns as much as a Harvard grad back when they could still get Wall Street jobs. “GM makes a new car with better range, and Elon’s like - I’ll double that bro.” I smiled. “I’m a risk taker. I made dumb mistakes. Lost big. But now I study, take calculated risks, you know?” I nodded, caught his eye in the rearview. “That’s right, you know what I’m saying. I don’t work no J.O.B. - Just Over Broke.” I’d never heard that and laughed approvingly.
