another guest post by Chicago Uber driver Scott Van Maldegiam

scott and charlie from chicago hopeLast Saturday night, I picked up 4 women in Lincoln Park and drove them to Lottie’s Pub. They were very fun and included me in their conversation.

I couldn’t tell you what we talked about except at the very end.

They mentioned that someone named “Charlie” was going to be there.

It was obvious from the way they were talking that they believed this person to be important or famous.

I asked “Charlie who?”

They said a guy on Chicago Fire.

I was skeptical until we pulled up a short time later and saw the actor that plays Peter Mills on Chicago Fire standing outside Lottie’s.

I watch the show occasionally, but my wife and son watch it every week.

I knew I needed to get a picture with him.

He was a super nice guy and was more than happy to have his picture taken with me.

I haven’t driven any famous people yet, so this is as close as I have gotten so far.
