Kenny Bachman called for an Uber after partying with friends at West Virginia University. He passed out in the back of the car.
When he woke up, he was told they were about an hour away from home. That's when he realized he'd made a big mistake.
He thought he was going back to where he was staying, not far from campus. But the address he put in was over 300 miles away... his home in New Jersey.
And it was double what it would have been, because he called for an Uber XL.

Don't know about you, but I don't plan to contribute. I think that bill might be the wakeup call he needed!
