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?
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.

I'm not changing her name to protect the innocent because she thrives on attention (one of the many reasons we're friends) and because she's definitely not innocent. Me and Dammit Janet at a bar circa 2011, moments before she ran away…
BEHOLD: Pumpkin Spice Booze, because Pumpkin Spice Lattes are over and they haven’t invented Pumpkin Spice Cocaine yet
Catch me snorting nutmeg

There is nothing wrong with a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Like astrology, Lush bath bombs, and any novel written by a woman, PSLs are in a special club of things that are objectively good and fun but hated on by dudes and girls who haven't yet realized that dudes who hate those things are garbage. But…
