People do send some weird stuff in Ubers like phones to friends and parcels but this drunk guy is next level.
In what is possibly the cutest drunken move ever, a man and his pals from Utah sent an injured baby bird to an animal sanctuary in an Uber because they were too drunk to drive.
Tim Crowley was “day drinking” with mates when he saw the little bird fall from the sky. When he took a photo of the bird and sent it to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah, he was immediately told to bring it in.
Too drunk to get behind the wheel, Crowley considered requesting an Uber to escort the tiny casualty to the nearest sanctuary. “At first it was a joke, like, ‘Hey, maybe we should just call Uber!’” he told Fox13. “Then we were like, ‘No, really. Why not? We’re paying them.’”
It took two attempts to order the bird a ride – the first Uber driver refused to take Crowley’s new feathery friend, but the next driver agreed.
Buz Marthaler, chairman of the wildlife sanctuary, said the two-week-old Lesser Goldfinch was unaccompanied when the Uber turned up at the animal sanctuary. “It was just crazy,” he said.
The wildlife sanctury said on Facebook: “While we feel we’ve seen it all and can’t be amazed by anything, there is always someone out there to prove us wrong,” staff wrote.
“Thank you to the rescuer who helped this little one get the care it needed in a timely manner and thank you for keeping yourself safe and others on the road safe as well.”
