The story of a taxi ride of a guy from New Jersey suggests that if you want to have a good time at the bar, and then safely get home by taxi, it is better to write down the address of the "delivery" of your body on a piece of paper, well, or on your forehead. The guy got drunk in a bar and took a ride on an Uber for $ 1,600, though not of his own free will.

After a wild party in Morgantown, West Virginia, Kenny Bachman called an Uber to drive to a friend's house near the local university. But Kenny's alcohol-addled brain had other plans for that.
Kenny woke up in the passenger seat of a Toyota and couldn't even immediately understand what he had forgotten here at all. It turned out that the taxi driver was taking him home, but not to his friends, but to Kenny's home, in another state, five hundred kilometers from West Virginia.
Another surprise awaited Kenny a little later. The trip turned out to be "golden" — $ 1,635. This is taking into account the fact that, drunk, Kenny chose a more expensive UberXL minivan with a capacity of up to six people instead of the usual fare.
And even that's not all. The taxi driver had no money, and he received several fines for driving on a toll road. Therefore, upon arrival, Kenny withdrew cash and gave the driver money for the return trip as well.
Kenny drove home safe and sound and even gave the driver five stars, but he still decided to challenge the bill for the trip. The guy claimed that the driver got into his phone to find out the address, and even answered his friend's FaceTime call while Kenny was sleeping.
However, Uber confirmed that the trip was made and the driver took Kenny to where he asked. As a result, the passenger still had to pay for the trip.
