LA FreewaysSeptember 22, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C
The story told before about the trip to “Vegan Leather Land” ended up taking one and a half hours to go a distance of eight miles, we ended up doing fifty, no exaggeration.
We passed where we started from, The Los Angeles Times building and the airport twice. We went east when we should have gone west, north when we should have gone south.
In the end we had to take over directions, we knew LA better than he did, he didn’t have a clue.
The poor buggar had a crap car, I had to wrench the door closed then kick it open with both feet.
His GPS was a hand held phone with a shattered screen and covered in dirt, he rested it on the passenger seat where it fell through some rips in the material a few times.
I felt sorry for him especially when Uber’s quote was for $8.00 which we expected to pay.
When the receipt came through we were charged nearly US$100.00.
Not feeling so sorry for him anymore I contacted Uber to dispute the fare.
On your Uber account there is a map of all past rides. All of ours ha a fairly simple line from pickup to destination, this one looked like a plate of spaghetti so with the dispute with Uber after they asked if we requested any different directions or stops I said “look at our tracking map and do you think anyone directing a route like that would be sane enough to communicate with you right now... No! they’d be too #**! ing crazy. This seem to work because we got our refund immediately.
The trip out to Cruise America was the complete opposite. We got a gorgeous Latino girl, the car was spotless and took a fraction of time compared to our spaghetti ride to “Veganville”
It’s good to be back in the RV and apparently we get special privileges, what ever they are because we are regular renters.
Finally it was all good but LA wasn’t finished with us yet.... after booking in, stocking up and heading off we hit the LA Freeways which equals eight lanes of traffic going nowhere.
Stay tuned for the next post because we have passed through 4 states already and yes stuff has been happening!Read more
