Getting crushed by an unforeseen Uber bill can be terrifying. Especially on New Year’s Eve with surge pricing soaring. But chances are Joseph Martin had a more painful New Year’s Eve than you or anyone else who took Uber that night. An Ole Miss fan and alum, he was in Atlanta for the Peach Bowl with his family.
The disastrous loss to TCU would have been bad enough, but later that night Joseph fell asleep in an Uber on the way to an after party and woke up in Alabama, en route to a home address in Mississippi. With rumors of his $908 tab circulating virally on social media Joseph contacted Outkick to get the whole story out there.
