Houston man takes Uber ride 95 feet home.
SFGate – For urban dwellers, the taxi is an eternal temptation, a lazy man’s luxury of choice — especially after throwing back a beer or two.
Sometimes, though, as one Houston man found out yesterday, such luxuries are kind of pointless.
One Reddit user going by the username uhcougars1151 posted a picture of his Uber e-reciept last night for what must have been the shortest Uber ride ever: he went just 95 feet, circling the block to arrive just steps from where he started. The damage: $4.28.
Apparently, uhcougars1151 failed to realize the lavishness of his Uber ride until the next morning.
“After a night of fairly heavy drinking, I woke up to find I took a very unnecessary cab ride…” he wrote. “Thank you Uber for rubbing it in my face with the detailed map….
I think we’ve all been in this situation. Too drunk to walk, too drunk to function, too drunk to live so I really do empathize with U of Houston alum who had to take the last 95 feet home in a spotless Toyota Camry.
However, that’s 30 yards or so and you could basically putt home from that distance, not even a need for a wedge. We’ve all be drunk but that drunk? Come on, bro, from that territory you can almost smell the cold pizza in your fridge. Act like you been there before. Now if this Uber driver got out of the car and helped in the door or this guy sneaky just wanted some cold bottled water, I get it, pay the $4.28 and not walk all the way home but don’t complain to us the next day about it. So the driver took you around the block, big deal, you think cab’s take the most direct cab route? Hell no, so don’t get mad at Uber for publishing a map of much an idiot you are. Grow up.
