Have you ever woken up to a ludicrous credit card charge after a night out drinking?
To make matters worse, the ride came the night before her 26th birthday, so she woke up to a costly surprise that didn’t just overshadow the day, it put her in dire financial straits.
“My rent is $450 and I can no longer pay it today due to this completely outrageous charge,” she wrote.
Wathen decided to crowdfund the cost on GoFundMe, and speedily raised more than $500 in 12 hours from sympathetic Uber customers.
“I feel taken advantage of and cheated by the Uber name,” she added. “$367 for a 20-minute ride should never be justified, even on Halloween. Please donate even just $1 if you think this is utter and complete bullshit and also hilarious and very, very depressing at the same time.”
