While we gnaw our fingers, hands, and a cold subway railing in anxiety over tomorrow's Election, here's a little sliver of light to remind you that life is wonderful and weird.

Twitter user Brandee Barker posted a video on Twitter over the weekend, after she realized her Uber driver in Ohio lent his voice to a certain world-changing phrase nearly thirty years ago:

"Welcome! You've got mail!"

You've. Got. Mail.

Yes, that one.

Her driver, Elwood Edwards, voiced the legendary AOL greeting back in 1989, after--according to NY Mag--his wife (who was a rep for AOL) volunteered him due to his history as a broadcast announcer.

Those four simple words go a long way, especially right now.
