Kenneth Bachman was having a great time partying at and around the University of West Virginia (WVU) over the weekend.
“We went to a frat party and then went to the bar. I was getting drinks all night; I probably spent like $200 at the bar after already drinking all day,” he told CBS Philly. “Basically, I kinda just blacked out. The last thing I remember was being at the bar and then I just woke up in the Uber next to an older dude telling me I was an hour out from Jersey.”
Bachman doesn’t particularly remember wanting to go home and ordering an Uber to take him there, but that’s what happened. And he clearly didn’t realize he chose UberXL, which the company says is the option to take when you have “the desire to spread out a bit.”
Bachman spread out for sure, passing out shortly after he got into the car. When he finally got home to Sewell, NJ, he was facing something worse than a hangover: An Uber total of $1,635.93.
He had no choice but to pay it, he said, and didn’t say if he added a tip.
It wasn’t clear if Bachman meant to give the driver the address of where he was staying at WVU or really wanted to go back to Jersey.
But he’s maintaining his sense of humor about the incident, telling CBS Philly that “I’m heading back to West Virginia this weekend to pick up my bags so if you guys see me say, ‘what’s up!’”
