A drunk man paid $1,600 for a 300-mile Uber ride to the wrong home

Look at this dude's adventure. he ends up with $1600 in an Uber.  He wakes up in middle of it and says, "EF.  I am gonna go all the way."

Bachman ordered himself an Uber after a night of drinking. As we said, this is definitely the way to go. He instructed the app to take him to his home in Philadelphia, but that's not actually where he wanted to go. He was in Morgantown, West Virginia at the time, more than 300 miles away from his house. The Uber driver, meanwhile, did what he thought he was supposed to.

This guy is sort of a stud.  or a wimp.  I can't tell.

He woke up about two hours into the trip, and the driver told him they were on their way to New Jersey. Rather than get out of the car or turn around, he just went with it. "What am I, just going to get dropped off on the side of the road?" Bachman said.

This story gets even weirder:

On top of that, the Uber driver didn't have money for tolls and was fined at every toll booth. But Bachman went to a CVS and got cash to pay the driver for all the missed tolls. He also gave the driver a five-star review, but he did end up challenging the charge. He says he did not put in his home address for the ride, and that the driver had his phone, and even answered a FaceTime call from a friend while he was sleeping.

Happy ending.  A stud:

The real Bachman, meanwhile, went back and forth with but ultimately agreed to pay the fare. Next time, he and his friends should probably agree on a designated Uber caller before the shots start pouring.

    My favorite part of the story:

    Rather than get out of the car or turn around, he just went with it. "What am I, just going to get dropped off on the side of the road?" Bachman said.

    How did this driver not have money for tolls?  I mean, that's ok, but he just blew through them?  Who does that?

      I suspect he knew exactly what was happening.  Saw the dude sleeping and decided to take the guy for a ride.  He didn't mind the fines because he knew he would be in for a big reward.
