Drunk you is not logical. Drunk you is lazy, hungry and enjoys falling asleep in places you shouldn’t nap, including but not limited to: subway platforms, cars, public parks, 24-hour McDonald’s…basically anywhere that’s not at home and in bed. Hannah Warman is no exception, but unfortunately for her she happened to fall asleep in an Uber, AND get a real shitbag of a driver.

In an interview with Metro, Hannah explained that she had been at a friend’s party only 5-10 minutes from her house. Despite the short distance, Hannah says that she had a “bit too much to drink” and chose to call an Uber rather than walk. “Then, I must’ve fallen asleep in the car. I woke up a couple of times and said ‘Why is this taking so long?’ and I think I assumed he’d got a bit lost or something but I had no idea it’d been an hour and a half.”

‘I fell back asleep. I went straight to bed once I’d got home and I only realised what had happened the next day when I got an email receipt for my £85 Uber journey.

‘After a lot of emails, Uber have refunded most of the fee (£71 was refunded) but I feel like I don’t trust them any more. I feel like they should reassure me that the driver was penalised or dismissed and explain how this could’ve happened.’(via)

A spokesman for Uber told Metro that “We are speaking to the licensed driver and the rider to establish exactly what happened and have given the rider a full refund. Unlike other transport options Uber’s technology records every trip and sends riders a receipt with a map of the route taken. This transparency and accountability means if there is an issue it can be quickly resolved.”
