It is time to bring back the weird news.
This poor guy paid a cab driver a fare of GBP 1700 ($3015) plus GBP 250 ($440) for the Channel tunnel and a hotel over night stay to be driven 740 miles from Portsmouth (England) to Munich’s Oktoberfest (Germany). The dude had missed his flight to his friend’s stag night. The cabbie thought the guy was taking the piss or that the other cabbies were playing a prank on him but the poor guy was dead serious. So off they went on a 17 hour trip.
I really don’t envy the cabbie for having to drive all the way back after dropping Mr. Missedmyflight at the Oktoberfest. C R A Z Y but I guess that’s what a friendship was worth to this man. $3500 and a 17 our roadtrip to take part in the world’s biggest beer fest/stag night/bender.
