Uber-driving dad reminds 8-year-old daughter to never get in car with strangers

Nashville, TN - As customary in the Lee household, Ken Lee began his work-day as an Uber driver by dropping off his 8-year-old daughter, Myra, at her elementary school in West Nashville.

Lee used some of the driving time with Myra to talk about who would be picking her up after school and remind her repeatedly to never, on any occasion, get in a car with a stranger. Myra reportedly told her father, "I know dad. You've told me like ten billion times. Stranger danger."

Today, Lee was not the only one instilling the important life lesson in his daughter. An unnamed Uber passenger in the backseat, who Lee had picked up en route to the school, also told the girl, "Your dad's right, Myra. The world can be very dangerous and you have to be careful these days. Pinky swear you'll never take a ride from a stranger." Myra rolled her eyes, but promised the nameless man to be careful.

In a follow-up interview, The Inquisitor asked Myra, what she wants to be when she grows up? The 8-year-old said, "I want to be an Uber driver just like my dad." Her beaming father, by her side, said he couldn't be more proud.
