Martha Stewart exclaimed that she took her “very first Uber!” on Monday.
And it all went downhill from there.
The 77-year-old doyenne of domesticity wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post that when she first ordered the “most expensive version” of Uber to pick her up in front of Tiffany’s in New York City, the car didn’t show up. Then a second Uber arrived 10 minutes later ― and parked half a crosstown block away. Not to mention that the car was facing in the wrong direction from her destination, seriously delaying her journey.
Then the kicker:
“On top of it all, the car was a mess inside and out!!!!!!!!” Stewart posted, along with images of schmutz and water bottles on the floor.
Despite all that, the cookbook author and lifestyle maven said she wanted the ride-hailing service to succeed.
“We were so disappointed to hear about Martha’s negative experience,” a Uber spokesperson said in a statement. “We care about each and every ride, and have been in touch with Martha and her team.”
At least that’s a good thing.
