Uber Eats customer (well, more than likely ex-Uber Eats customer) Alex Mutammara went viral on TikTok after posting a video delineating his negative experience with the popular food delivery service, stating that the random bill showed up on his credit card after using the application’s group ordering function.

If you’re ordering for a large group of people on Uber Eats, then usually one person in the group covers the cost of the food. Then you have other folks covering their own meals by either Venmo-ing, Zelle-ing, Apple Pay-ing, or handing over the cash to whoever decided to use their card for the order.

But with Uber Eats’ group ordering, everyone can cover the cost of their own food and share of the delivery charge and any subsequent tips as well. At least that’s how it’s supposed to work, and it doesn’t seem like that was the case for Alex at all.

In his viral TikTok, Alex says that since he was the “leader” of the order, he ultimately ended up not only paying more than everyone else in the group, but he says he was slapped with an extra $57 charge out of nowhere.

What’s more is that Alex went straight for Uber on TikTok, posting a stitched video as a response to a clip uploaded by the company that shows someone pantomiming touching their smartphone with a caption that reads: “When I go to request $ from my friends for the food I ordered on Uber Eats for us last night”

The clip then cuts to Alex talking into the camera stating: “This was supposed to be an ad for Uber’s new group order feature which is basically like you don’t have to Venmo people you just all put in your order in the group thing, but I tried it the other day with my friends and it overcharged me fifty dollars for being the group leader, like being the person that started the order.”

Alex continued in his TikTok, showing off a series of screengrabs delineating his charges on a green screen for the order: “So $24.88 this was my receipt like the total for my specific order. Y’all know I got the green curry that’s my favorite thing to get at Thai Places, and then these were my receipts like right here this was, this is actually correct, for my order this is the subtotal and the tip, but then the next day I got this random fifty seven dollar charge.”

Alex decided to reach out to Uber regarding the charge and discussed his experience in dealing with the company’s customer service department, “And I contacted them about it and they kept just saying…have the group order creator reach out. And so at this point every time I submit a new request to them they immediately cancel my thing and they just are like please rate your experience.”

It’s safe to assume that Alex’s experience isn’t so great. “I’m like, yes there’s more that I need, I need my fifty-seven dollars back. All that to say, fifty-seven dollars is definitely gone by this point, I just want to come on here and say do not use Uber Eats, specifically the group order feature, cause they’re gonna steal money from you.”

Tons of other TikTokers responded to Alex’s post and tagged Uber, asking the company to give him his money back. Others suggested that he just alert his credit card company and report the $57 charge as fraudulent.

Some users on the platform lamented that Uber’s customer service is “trash” and that they’ve had experiences similar to Alex’s. However, there were others who offered up practical explanations as to what could’ve been the culprit behind Alex’s Uber Eats monetary woes: some of the folks in his group may’ve not had the money to foot the bill for their meals, leaving him with the bill.

A Carnival Cruise Blackout Confuses and Concerns Guests

Published

on

A woman describes being on a Carnival cruise during an unexpected and unexplained blackout and there may be a good reason for this.

If you ever needed another reason not to take a vacation on a cruise, then one woman’s TikTok about a blackout in the middle of the ocean may do it for you. A user by the name of @nieceeb41 shared a video in which she says she and her travel companions “experienced a blackout” with no warning and no information on what was happening in the moment.

I am in the camp of preferring my vacations on land, where I have the ability to leave if there is an emergency. So, to hear of a Carnival Horizon cruise stopping in the middle of the ocean and cutting all power is a literal nightmare. In her video, the TikTok user doesn’t explain why the cruise blackout happened, but she does give a firsthand account of what it was like.

A Carnival cruise’s blackout caused panic among the guests.

In her video, the creator explains that she and the other guests aboard a Carnival Horizon cruise, which had set sail for Aruba, were covered in almost complete darkness. She says that low emergency lights were turned on in the hallways, but that, without warning from a captain or any staff, the power cut off and she and other guests aboard the ship had no clue what happened. Again I say, literal nightmare.

“Tonight, just a few seconds ago, we experienced a blackout, a complete blackout,” she says in the TikTok. “And guess what? Nobody was explaining anything, we got no announcement, no nothing. People in the hallway [were] confused, they had emergency lights on at the bottom [of the hallway walls]… Nobody knows nothing. What is going on, Carnival?”

If this were a standard power outage, apparently the actual danger is minimal. Cruise ships, including those owned by Carnival, are equipped with high-powered generators. They can turn power back on for lighting, get elevators back up and running, keep communication lines open, and even power the engines.

But, because the TikToker doesn’t explain why the blackout happened on the Carnival cruise in the video or any videos after it, we don’t have any answers as to what happened or how things progressed once the staff inevitably informed the guests what was going on. Luckily, other people who have been on cruises or even worked on them have some ideas about why there was an unexplained blackout on the ship.

Cruises are often in danger of pirates on the open ocean.

Most of the comments under the TikTok video claim that the cruise ship likely went dark and, therefore, silent in the middle of the ocean because of pirates. If a smaller ship was spotted nearby, it would make sense for the ship to cut power at night and turn off the sounds that pirates could detect.

“If they announced [a blackout], the pirates would hear them,” one user commented. “Keep an open mind. Most ships don’t just have a blackout.”

Another person agreed, “Sounds like they saw pirates out there… They are indeed out there and the ships have protocols for them.”

While some of the comments explain that “pirates are real,” others show that people who prefer not to go on cruises are happily justified in their decisions. And with no answers about the blackout and the danger of pirates on the ocean, you can have your cruises.

There is something to be said about people being attracted to a person’s sense of humor. Whenever people list off what they’d like in a life partner, many times a “sense of humor” or “funny” is at the top of the list for most desired qualities.

That’s why it makes so much sense that famous comedians have dated some of the most beautiful Hollywood actors and models. Funny guy David Spade is no exception to that. David was one of the most well-known comedians in the 1990s after he first appeared on Saturday Night Live. David’s successful and lengthy career has helped him to earn a net worth estimated at $40 million, but does he have a wife to share his fortune with? Has David ever been married?

David Spade has never been married, but he has dated quite a few ladies.

According to Ranker, David has dated an impressive 20 women but has never tied the knot with any of them. The comedian once admitted that it’s very hard for him to settle down, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t thought about it or actually tried.

He told The New York Times, “It’s very hard for me, for various reasons, which we won’t get into. Too much data, too many gigabytes. But I have been trying to do that. I’ve known someone for a long time. I’ve been trying to make something work.”

David Spade’s list of ex-girlfriends is long and blonde.

David has dated numerous actors and celebrities, including Heather Locklear, Lara Flynn Boyle, Julie Bowen, Teri Hatcher, and Naya Rivera, just to name a few. E! News actually called him “a bachelor-era George Clooney of the comedy world” after photos of David and Naya cuddling in a swimming pool went viral. His friends concur that he has got a way with women.

Howard Stern, on his radio show while discussing the dating reports, said that David was simply that charming of a guy, one who’s always had success with the ladies.

In 2016, David was seen out with Baywatch‘s Charlotte McKinney. Their outing caused a lot of speculation and rumors, but nothing was confirmed. A few years later, during the COVID-19 pandemic, he admitted that he was still single.

That being said, David had another daring confession. “I’m dating someone now,” he told Page Six. Unfortunately, he didn’t really give any additional details, so fans are still left in the dark about if its that serious and who the mystery person is.

David Spade has a daughter with a Playboy bunny.

David shares custody of his daughter with her mother, a former Playboy bunny named Jillian Grace. The two broke up shortly after Harper was born. She was born in 2008.

David said that having a daughter of his own has truly changed his viewpoint on his own father and he revealed in his book, A Polaroid Guy in a Snapchat World. He stopped talking to his father after Harper was born.

David spilled his true feelings about fatherhood in his tell-all book.

David explained more about his dad and wrote, “This one’s going to be a little tricky — this is a chapter about my dad, and the way that it fits into this audiobook is I’m a dad now. And the difference – and why it caused some complications with my own dad — is because he was sort of a ne’er-do-well, which is putting it mildly. I think f–k up is more on the nose.”

He continued, “So when I had [Harper], I got this new tidal wave of resentment towards my dad because of his irresponsible behavior and manipulative mean streak. So I stopped talking to him.”

It’s still a mystery as to if David will settle down with anyone, but he remains a dedicated father and one of the best comedians in his craft. Fans will just have to wait and see.

Corey Gamble Says He Passed on a Yellowstone Role

Published

on

Corey Gamble says in Season 4 of ‘The Kardashians’ that he almost had a role on the drama ‘Yellowstone,’ but that Kris didn’t like the part for him.

The Gist:

  • Corey Gamble hasn’t been in many movies or TV shows as an actor.
  • Corey Gamble has worked in the music business with Scooter Braun, but he is known best for being Kris Jenner’s boyfriend.
  • Kris Jenner didn’t want Corey to be in an episode of Yellowstone when he was offered a role.

Article continues below advertisement

When Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble met in 2014, she was still married and he was working as Justin Bieber’s tour manager. Flash-forward to present day and things have changed quite a bit. Including, of course, Corey’s fame as a would-be member of the Kardashian/Jenner family. And in the Season 4 premiere of The Kardashians, we see just how much fame he has garnered since he says he was asked to be on Peacock’s Yellowstone.

Corey Gamble was almost on ‘Yellowstone.’

In the Season 4 premiere of The Kardashians, Kris and Corey mention how she likes the show Yellowstone. And when Corey makes a comment about “almost” being on her favorite show, they elaborate for Kris’s daughters. Apparently, producers offered Corey a role as an actor on the long-running Peacock western drama.

But, Corey reveals, he turned down the opportunity at Kris’s request. She admits that she didn’t want Corey taking on a role that might have him kissing other women. And Corey seems (mostly) fine with this. But it is a little confusing as to why Corey was offered an acting role on such a big TV show when he has only ever appeared in the 2020 movie 2 Minutes of Fame in a minor role.

Does this mean Corey is actively pursuing an acting career? If that’s the case, he may have a hard time actually landing a gig if Kris has reservations and control over what roles Corey accepts. And she may just prefer to keep him close by for her benefit.

What has Corey Gamble acted in?

Corey has only been in one movie. And, even though he was offered a role on Yellowstone, Corey apparently prefers to be out of the spotlight if he can help it, even as the live-in boyfriend of someone with the last name Jenner.

In May 2022, Us Weekly reported that an “insider” said Corey wasn’t in attendance at Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding in Italy because he “prefers low-key celebrations where there aren’t a lot of photographers.” Again, that’s asking a lot when your girlfriend is Kris Jenner.

However, that could be another reason why he turned down the Yellowstone role. Whatever the case may be, you can never say Corey isn’t a dedicated boyfriend.
