Uber charged this guy $2.5 MILLION for a ride and now won’t reply to his emails
The $200 cleaning fee is nothing in comparison
by Katie Way
We've all been gouged by Uber before — when surge went up to 3x but it was raining and you were wearing suede boots, when your driver wouldn't let you and your five friends squeeze into his Hyundai Sonata even though there was totally room, or when your driver took the scenic route to your fuck buddy's apartment. It happens.
But one man experienced the price hike of a lifetime when he was charged $2,395,915.20 for a "recent trip." After apparently trying to reach Uber support for hours, he did what any sane person would do: he tweeted about it.
Um… @Uber I've been trying to reach someone at your company for hours now…I think you made a big mistake…this is an expensive (and extremely incorrect) receipt for a car service… pic.twitter.com/7Zn6e2rg5B

Lucky for @DaveSobo3, Uber's Twitter account responded, but according to him the charge remains unresolved. Now the question remains: what, if anything, did he do to incur this extra charge?

We'll be following this story carefully to confirm what exactly not to do the next time we're wasted and trying to get home or late to the airport.

Tracing its origins

Why did Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson break up? An investigation
Let’s be real, this relationship was never going to work out
by Nian Hu
So Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson broke up this weekend, surprising absolutely nobody. Who would've thought that a whirlwind five-month-long PDA-fueled relationship between an unfunny butthole-eyed corpse-looking dude and a world-famous pop star who was WAY out of his league could've possibly worked out? The question was never if they would break up, but when.The…
