Uber Passenger Falls Asleep, Driver Takes Him On 20-Mile Detour

At least the driver didn't try to get even more money by putting some fake vomit around the car.

The rider booked an Uber early Monday to travel from London's trendy Old Street area to Clapton, a trip of just four miles. But instead of a 15 minute journey up the road, the driver embarked on an epic detour, driving 20 miles out of his way before arriving at the original destination. The rider said in a series of social media posts that he was drunk and fell asleep in the car. He only found out about the circuitous route when he realized he had been charged آ£105 ($150) instead of the expected fare of آ£15 ($22).
