    Do you know the biggest irony of this is?  $294 is probably cheaper than the flight.  Think about it.

    I live in Boston.  400 miles will get me to Baltimore.  Flights can regularly be over that.

      All I can think of is that poor driver who had to turn around and drive all the way back.

    “She didn’t seem excited to see her boyfriend,” Rogers recalled. “She was kind of blasé. She looked tired.”

    WHAT?! I would have thought that I would have died for a fare like this but the driver said she only made about $9 a hour when everything was said and done... not so good.

    Too bad Uber doesn't let you tip the driver....
