Eight hours?!? Who in their right might spends eight hours in an Uber? Isn’t this the exact plot of Take Me Home?
I need more info...
Okay, I think I’m starting to piece this together based off of a couple things in that screenshot.
First of all, it appears that Shareece got picked up at 11 pm from the airport (O’Hare).
My guess is that he got put in one of those positions that we all find ourselves in once in our lives, where flight delays and mechanical issues led to a night spent in an airport.
Considering Shareece has made over $10,000,000 in cash over the last six years, he probably figured that he could spend a little money and find an easier way out of this.
Second of all, this isn’t a terrible deal.
Had he stayed overnight in Chicago and purchased a flight, he could be paying somewhere around $300 for one and $400 for the other (assuming one or both wouldn’t already be covered by the airline).
Third, and most importantly, time is a factor.
When it’s your first day to impress your new team and a new coach, you do whatever it takes to make sure you’re on time. For some, that would mean flying out a day early. For others, that means paying $600+ to spend the night sleeping in the back of a speeding Nissan Altima.
