        Especially since the power outage at the Atlanta airport has really messed up airline schedules all over the country for the rest of the week.

        Plus I'm sure he has to think up some new lies in light of the Jacobs letter. Being a corporate lawyer is bad enough, but being a corporate lawyer for Uber is like being Satan's right hand man. I'll be surprised if he doesn't burst into flames when exposed to the Florida sun!
