Martha Stewart took her first Uber ride yesterday, which isn’t exactly news in and of itself — however, she documented her experience for your enjoyment and mine. Martha chronicled the experience on her Instagram, and while the posts have since been deleted, the screenshots will live on in Internet history. Bless the rains, and you, Corey Kindberg.
The post reads:
“My very first Uber! I ordered the most expensive version to pick me up on Fifth Avenue and 57th street in front of Tiffany’s The first Uber did not show up The second Uber came ten minutes later and parked halfway down 57 th street where I could not see the license plate Then we were facing east when I had to go west and south Took twenty minutes to face south west Etc etc it only took a little bit more than an hour On top of it all the car was a mess inside and out!!!!!!!!! And I want Uber to succeed!”
There’s a lot to digest here, other than Stewart’s lack of grammar and punctuation, but that’s neither here nor there. (For what it’s worth, apparently her Uber wasn’t here or there, either.)
I think I can speak for so many Uber riders when I say… PREACH, SISTER. We all know the pain and frustration of waiting around for an Uber for what seems like hours, and having to track it down, and to add insult to injury, face the wrong direction only to have to spend even more time driving around to head to your destination. No wonder TPG himself is breaking up with Uber.
And can we talk about the actual Uber itself for a second? Those floors are more disgusting than the basement at a frat party.
It’s so frustrating to see a company with so much promise continually find itself falling drastically below its customers’ expectations, and Martha’s odyssey is just another notch in the list of grievances against the company.
It’s also probably safe to say this was Martha’s first — and last — Uber experience.
