Martha Stewart’s first Uber ride: Apparently, it wasn’t a good thing.
On Monday, domestic-arts guru Stewart harnessed the power of her Instagram account to say that she’d taken her first Uber ride, with less than satisfactory results.
Stewart made sure to note that, rather than employing the cheap-o version of Uber, she had “ordered the most expensive version.”
“My very first Uber! I ordered the most expensive version to pick me up on Fifth Avenue and 57th street in front of Tiffany’s,” Stewart wrote.
Stewart went on to detail the experience.
“The first Uber did not show up The second Uber came ten minutes later and parked halfway down 57th street where I could not see the license plate,” Stewart wrote.
“Then we were facing east when I had to go west and south,” the “Martha Stewart Living” icon continued. “Took twenty minutes to face south west Etc etc it only took a bit more than one hour.”
Stewart concluded, “On top of it all the car was a mess inside and out!!!!!!!! And I want Uber to succeed!”
Stewart included a photo of a car interior that … well, it wasn’t exactly a pristine display of homemade doilies and centerpieces.
A number of commenters suggested that, perhaps, a person of Stewart’s stature should employ a different mode of transport.
“You have to order Black Car,” read one suggestion.
“Uber is basically yellow cab minus the paint and meter. Try looking into private ‘black car service’ like Executive Transportation Group “based out in BK,” read another comment. “They handle a lot of corporate and VIP clients. This driver still has no excuse to keep his car dirty.”
And then there was, “Welcome to the real world Martha.”
And, “Welcome to the humbled years, Martha.”
