MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — An Uber driver ferried two sisters 200 miles to their aunt’s 100th birthday party in Minnesota.
Kerry Maggard and Deb Eggers were flying from San Antonio to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with a connecting flight in Minneapolis. But bad weather forced their flight from San Antonio to land in Madison, Wisconsin, and they missed their connecting flight in Minneapolis.
No other flights were available. So the sisters turned to Uber and noticed the driver name that popped up on the ride-sharing app — Jesus Florentino.
Maggard told KARE-TV when that popped up, “I thought God has a sense of humor.”
Florentino didn’t realize the length of the trip when he pulled up, but agreed to drive.
Uber charged Maggard $216 for the trip. She tipped Florentino another $54.
