David Beckham, uber driver?

I’m sure you think that David Beckham’s kids think they have a really cool dad and that they are proud to brag about who their dad is. Well, you would be wrong. I was, too!

Kids are kids, no matter if they belong to a rich, cool, famous family. This is the secret that David revealed at an interview on the  Jimmy Kimmel TV show.

You will also hear him explaining his new daily routine after retiring from soccer.  Now he’s a  taxi driver! Yes, as you know, he’s got 4 children and just like most kids, they go to school and after-school activities and someone has to drive them around.

Uber-driver – remember that in colloquial English “uber” (coming from German) when used before an adjective means the ultimate, above all, the best, top, something that nothing is better than, so we can say Beckham is the definition of uber.  Thanks to Urban Dictionary for this definition.

But, doesn’t uber ring a bell to you? It is a really famous app to share your private car with others! This is a completly new concept that leads to a further debate, sharing economy and unfair competition.

Watch this short video where David explains how his children behave and his new routine.
