Yup, if you are drunk and take an Uber, then get ready to pay the Uber fee for drunk riding. One guy decided that he was going to enjoy a night out partying in West Virginia University's campus. During his inebriated state, he ordered an Uber and expected the driver to take him to his hotel room near the campus. However, this guy must have pressed "home," and the Uber driver picked him up, no big deal, and started to drive to the destination. The destination was the guy's home in Gloucester County, N.J. which is over 300 miles away. Add to this the guy ordered an UberXL, and you now have the drivers best fare of the year.
So, the guy's name is Kenny Bachman and here is what he told the media: "I just woke up, and I'm thinking, 'Why the f— am I in the car next to some random ass dude I don't even know?" Since the driver had already completed 2 hours of driving, Kenny didn't tell him to turn around or stop; he continued on home.
The total price for the trip was $696.95 for miles, $119 for time, the base fare and booking fee as well as toll penalties. Total bill was $1,635.93 due to surge pricing doubling the fare.
One good thing about Kenny is that he gave the driver 5 stars.
That's one happy driver, and we all wish we had a Kenny every day or night, maybe 2? Please…
