New NYC Rule Says Only “Real Couples” Can Take Ubers Together And Twitter’s Got Jokes (25 Tweets)

As coronavirus/COVID-19 continues to tighten its germy grip on civilization daily life is starting to change for millions in new and surprising ways. This has included self-quarantines, widespread work-from-home setups, and a recommended policy of social distancing that could soon become mandatory.

One new rule for social distancing in New York City, which has one of the highest rates of coronavirus infection in the US, is limiting rideshares like Uber and Lyft to a single passenger (sorry Uber Pool) UNLESS the two people in question are a couple. But what’s a couple? Isn’t that just two people who are choosing to associate? Nope. To clarify things (and potentially complicate things) NYC mayor Bill deBlasio specified that only “real couples” would be exempt. Shots fired!

As many people pointed out, the new “real couples only” could lead to couples having that DTR (or “define the relationship”) conversation that they’ve either been dreading, avoiding, or dreaming about.
