I just came back from an interview for a private practice job. They were very generous and offered to cover travel expenses including airfare, lodging, and transportation. They had asked if I would like to rent a car vs uber, and I thought it easier to uber around than worry about parking in the city. I interviewed Friday and then was going to get a feel for the city, explore some Saturday, and then and fly home in the evening around 6:30. Around four yesterday, I called for an uber thinking I would get to the airport easy (about thirty minutes to airport). It had been raining heavy off and on all day, but as soon I started to call for the uber it started pouring like crazy. By the time I got in the uber with my girlfriend, the streets were starting to flood. Ten minutes in, everything was completely effed. Then all the roads ceased to be of any use. The water was up to the bumpers. We sat in the car for 3 hours waiting out the storm. By the time I reached the hotel to pick up my luggage it was four hours on the uber. It ended up costing over $100. I obviously missed my flight and had to book a hotel emergently for the night and catch a crack of dawn flight and got up at 430 am. Do you guys think it's too much to ask for reimbursement? Added shots from my uber for effect.
