I've actually gotten this guy a few times. Super nice.
Turns out he is from Poland and used to drive a cab for 30 years over there before coming ot the US.
We started talking about technology and go on the topic of phone calls:
Artem: I had to call an operator for long distance calls. They would give us an appointment to be by the phone when calling someone. Now. I can be connected instantly to my daughter with Skype.
Me: What else do you do?
Artem: Well I also am a handyman, but what I really want to do is get a boat and take people on tours. I'm saving up now.
