"I was like 'Alright, this is insane, that's just crazy'".

"I was just like - that's insane".

But when his driver woke him up two hours into the more than 300-mile journey to New Jersey, Bachman said he didn't know what was happening or who the driver was.

The base fare was $3.94, the booking fee was $2.35 and it cost $696.95 for distance.

He ordered an Uber, which he said he doesn't recall doing, and then fell asleep during the ride.

Just about everyone has taken a drunken late-night Uber ride they might regret, or not even remember.

Kenneth adds that he accidentally ordered a more expensive UberXL, and had no choice but to pay the fare. He got in the auto, and fell asleep. "What am I, just going to get dropped off on the side of the road?"

"It would have cost like $800 but instead it came out to $1,600", Bachman says.

The Uber driver didn't have money for tolls, Bachman says, and was fined at every tollbooth.

Bachman got back to New Jersey safe and sound. A majority of that, - almost $700 - came from the distance the Uber driver traveled to take Bachman home, reported.

It wasn't clear if Bachman meant to give the driver the address of where he was staying at WVU or really wanted to go back to Jersey.

A drunk man in the USA types in the wrong destination and takes an Uber ride of epic proportions - with a fare to match. He also said the driver answered his cell phone when a friend called. "He was on my phone, without me allowing it".
