I think this week’s “unnecessary spending” award goes to one “uhcougars1151” from Houston, Texas. Recently, the Redditor indulged in some imbibing and used Uber for a ride to a nearby bar@mdash;and when I say nearby, I mean that Google Maps estimated that the 82-foot journey would’ve taken approximately one minute to walk. Maybe longer if he kept stumbling and falling.
And the cost? Well, despite using the “25 percent off uberX this summer” deal, the total fare came to $4.28. He admits:
“After a night of fairly heavy drinking, I woke up to find I took a very unnecessary cab ride.”
Yeah, I think unnecessary is a bit of an understatement.
