Drunk Guy Blacked Out and Took a $1,600 Uber Ride Through Four States
What's the most money you've spent while drunk?
Kenny Bachman from New Jersey was doing some heavy drinking while visiting friends in Morgantown, West Virginia last week. He tried to take an Uber back to his friends' place, but blacked out in the back of the car.
When he woke up, his Uber driver told him they were still about an hour away from his destination. Which didn't make sense. Then he figured out what happened.
Apparently he punched his home address into the app instead of his friend's address. Without questioning it, the Uber driver drove him the entire way from West Virginia to New Jersey.
That's just over 300 miles and they crossed through at least four states. Kenny's final fare was $1,635.93 and would have been about 800 bucks, but he accidentally ordered an UberXL. They're more expensive because you get a bigger car.
