There have been plenty of horror stories in the last few months because of Uber and its astronomical surge prices for rides, but this story might just top them all. Ever wonder just how far an Uber driver will take you out of town? Apparently, Atlanta to Mississippi is not a problem.

Part of me is skeptical. This is the internet after all, and I’m almost positive Uber has a city limit that drivers won’t exceed. However, I can absolutely see this happening. First off, the dude just saw his school get its shit pushed in for all 60 minutes against TCU. Without question, the guy’s next objective was to drink away the memory of the abortion he just witnessed, including those three Bo Wallace interceptions. I’m assuming he tailgated and drank at the game, because, “Hell yes! Damn right! Hotty Toddy, gosh almighty. Who the hell are we?” He was easily blacked out before midnight and eventually, he got to the point of “fuck this city, I’m going home” drunk.
It just comes down to the moral compass of the Uber driver. Do I believe a person from Atlanta would take complete advantage of this passed out kid? Absolutely. From past experience, Atlantans are in the list of the top five worst human beings on the planet. Sure, I was rocking my Chase Utley T-shirt and I might have initiated the fight by pouring a beer on Jason Heyward’s head, but that’s no reason to publicly humiliate and physically drag out a grown ass man from a stadium. I have rights and shit, but I digress.
Just to recap, don’t be belligerent and get into an Uber alone. Also, never trust anyone from Atlanta, or really from the state of Georgia while we’re at it..
