The bad news? That party was in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Like, where he lives. Bachmann countered that he didn't want to just be left on the side of the road. "And I'm thinking, 'Why the f-- am I in the auto next to some random ass dude I don't even know?"
The price of the trip came to a whopping $1,635.93.
"Afterwards I had it fully sink in", Bachman said.
Obviously, this accidental life choice has made Kenneth quite the hero of the drunken regrets world, and speaking on the matter he said simply, "I was just like... that's insane!". The charges broke down as follows, per NJ.com: $2.35 booking fee, $3.94 base fare, $115.90 for time and $696.95 for distance.
One alcohol-induced nap and two hours later, Bachman woke up en-route to his home in Gloucester County, New Jersey - more than 300 miles away from his intended destination. Rather than get out of the auto or turn around, he just went with it.
The driver was fined at every toll. The regular option would've cost him $800.
Bachman got back to New Jersey safe and sound. He also rated the driver five stars.
Bachman said he accidentally ordered a luxury UberXL vehicle, which increased the cost of the ride. "He was on my phone, without me allowing it". He disputed the charge but as Uber noted, the ride did indeed occur and the driver took him to the destination requested so there wasn't much they could do.
The real Bachman, meanwhile, went back and forth with but ultimately agreed to pay the fare.
