Be One Of The Lucky Ones With Sam Riggs At Billy Bob’s Texas, Have A Tex Mex Holiday Fiesta At Kessler Theater And Celebrate Christmas With Us At Three Links.

Oh, Uber, it seems that you just can stay away from making some rather negative headlines.

The ridesharing company made headlines when the app accidentally  charged  an unidentified passenger more than $14,000 for five-mile ride in Toronto.

The odd thing was that Uber didn’t want to refund its money to the passenger, until a user posted the passenger’s bill and it of course went viral. And — well, we all know what happens when things go viral. Uber then refunded the money. But what’s really strange, is that a five-mile ride ended up costing that much.

Anyway, this should probably serve as a warning for you to keep an eye onyour bill so you don’t get overcharged while riding Uber to one of the following events.  —Juan Betancourt
