    What about food drivers?  Doordash, Uber Eats, Instacart.

    Try to stay away from mentioning a very expensive phone and plan.  You don't need a brand new Cadillac, or MB to be a Uber driver.

    Something that's good enough to handle a map app like Waze or MapQuest and a app from these companies.
