Uber is once again winning netizens hearts with its humour. A screenshot of the Uber app is going viral lately for showing an option of a Walking Buddy along with Pool and Uber X. The image was shared on Twitter by user @JReneex with the caption, “Lmfao walking buddy?” and has the internet laughing hard.
It showed that for a drop-off at the LaGuardia Airport in New York, the app was offering an option of a Walking Buddy.
The image showed an icon featuring two people holding hands next to the Walking Buddy. What was funnier was the charge for availing the Walking Buddy option, which was USD 7.50, Rs 533 approximately.
After the tweet went viral, Twitterati joined in on the fun and left some hilarious comments. Some thought the idea was great, others thought that it would be absolutely creepy.
The whole situation took an even more hilarious turn when the app also joined in on the fun and replied to the tweet. Uber replied, “Gotta get those steps in.”
The screenshot left the internet wondering whether Uber really offers such a service.
Turns out, Uber does not offer the service of a Walking Buddy anywhere near the LaGuardia Airport in New York. A quick search around the airport on the app will tell you the same.
