Drunken night out in Edinburgh ends with £400 Uber ride over 100-miles from home

A drunken night out in Edinburgh ended with a £400 Uber ride, over 100-miles from where he lived. A Scottish clubber, Joseph Fergie, enjoyed a night out at the ATIK nightclub in Edinburgh before deciding to take an Uber home according to the Daily Record.

The luckless youngster was hoping to arrive at his home in Leith, usually a 15-minute drive from the club. However, dazed and confused, Fergie exited the Toyota Prius to find himself over 100 miles from his house in Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway.  The cost of the ride was a whopping £395.85 according to a tweet showing the Uber journey taken. In the picture posted on Twitter, Joseph said: “Oh my lord mate. What have I done.”
