What a drag! Martha Stewart just took her first ever Uber ride but the experience, unfortunately, wasn’t a great one. The 77-year-old star took to Instagram on Monday, Nov. 19 to detail her bummer ride with Uber and even shared photos of the messy car she rode in during her trip.
“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. 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,” Martha wrote on Instagram. “Then we were facing east when I had to go west and south. Took twenty minutes to face southwest… it only took a bit more than one hour. On top of it all, the car was a mess inside and out! And I want Uber to succeed!”
After reading Martha’s post, many of her more than 320,000 Instagram followers commented that they felt bad about her far from great Uber experience. “This is not fit for the queen, @MarthaStewart! I’m offended for you!” one person wrote with another similarly adding, “The first one canceled on you?! Did the next one even know who you were!? Did they apologize for the lack of luxury?”
Here’s hoping Martha’s next ride with Uber goes better (or maybe she’ll just switch to using Lyft!). Honestly, we’re just impressed that the celebrity chef is savvy enough at nearly 80 years old to use any ride-sharing app! During a recent interview, Martha herself revealed that she has no qualms with growing older.
“Seventy is nothing like the 70 of 20 or 40 years ago. Your 70s are the new 50s,” she told New You of embracing her age and staying as active and productive as ever. “Not everyone wants to retire, and very few people want to slow down.” A source close to Martha similarly told Closer Weekly that the star is embracing her age. “She’s really owning her power. She does only what she wants to do, and she feels that this past year has made her the most relevant she’s ever been.”
