For taxi and Uber drivers, going to the airport is a lot like going fishing – they’re always looking to land the big one.
And one lucky Uber driver landed the fare equivalent of Moby Dick last month after picking up Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright – who paid $632.08 for a 550-mile trip from Chicago’s O’Hare airport to Buffalo to make it for training in time.
“My flight ended up getting in late, so I wasn’t able to make my connecting flight,” said Wright. “I called one of my ex-teammates that lives in Chicago … and he wasn’t able to take me and Uber was my next thought.”
He also tipped the guy $300. Nice work if you can get it.
