SJ Man Falls Asleep in Uber, Wakes Up to Over $1600 Charge
Oh Kenny...Kenny Bachman of Sewell was recently visiting a buddy at West Virginia University (in Virginia, obviously) when he drunkenly ordered himself an Uber home after a night out. However, Kenny LITERALLY ordered and Uber home; Not back to where he was staying in West Virginia, but back to Gloucester County, NJ!
When Kenny got into the Uber he apparently passed out in the passenger seat before waking up about 300 miles away later. "The bill?" you may ask...$1,635
NJ.com claims a drunk man recently passed out in an Uber car before waking up to a $1,635 bill. Kenny Bachman and his friends were partying in Morgantown, West Virginia when he called an Uber car to take him home. Kenny passed out in the passenger seat before waking up 300 miles away near his permanent residence in Gloucester County, New Jersey.
According to NJ.com, Kenny said to Advanced 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?Afterwards I had it fully sink in. Once the ride ended and I saw how much it was when I was like 'Alright, this is insane, that's just crazy.'"
In which case, Kenny attempted to challenge the charge because he claims he never gave his New Jersey home address to Uber. Unfortunately, the investigation lead to prove that was not the case, and Kenny agreed to pay the fare, even rating his driver 5 stars.
