If you're still nursing a hangover from the New Year's Eve, we have something that might help: schadenfreude. Even though Uber did a fair job of warning users beforehand, last night's surge prices blew away many people too turnt to drive. We gathered some of the most extreme rates posted to twitter, ranging from a multiple of 2.8 (why is this person even complaining) to a debilitating 10.
Be glad this wasn't you. And if you were rocked by Uber, try and find some solace in knowing you weren't alone.
@Uber_LS you said it would be standard rate on NYE yesterday. AND he took me the long way to make more? Awful service pic.twitter.com/izxad5cY5g— Rach Clarke (@Rach_VC) January 1, 2015

Yowsers! @uber_CT at a X10 rate, minimum R500 - my calculations make it R1600 to get home. I'll stay and party rather pic.twitter.com/HrTqDdeAta— Warren Harding (@BizWazza) December 31, 2014
