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

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.

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.

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?
Did he throw up in the Uber, set it on fire and then steal like 8 other cars? Do the water bottles and weird hard candies that drivers sometimes have on deck actually cost extra? 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.

This is not satire: I 100 percent believe Jake Paul will be the president before we die
It’s Paul/Paul 2028, bro!
by Katie Way
I'm as happy as anybody else that a known pedophile didn't manage to snag a seat in Congress last night, but honestly, the American political sphere is still beyond fucked. Donald Trump, the star of a reality TV that wasn't even popular outside of a brief, crazy time in like, 2004 has been the president…
I asked finance bros on The League to explain Bitcoin to me
They were NOT helpful
by Katie Way
Bitcoin! It's everywhere, and I'm not totally sure what it is. I don't want to name names, but a fellow babe writer thought it was the currency from Farmville until like, yesterday. So that's where our newsroom is at in terms of the cryptocurrency wave. When I don't understand something, I usually try to do…
