South Jersey Man Falls Asleep in Uber, Wakes Up to Over $1,600 Charge
Kenny Bachman of Sewell was recently visiting a buddy at West Virginia University 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.
When Kenny got into the Uber he apparently passed out in the passenger seat before waking up about 300 miles away later. The bill? $1,635.
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.
