Catholics Gave Up Paying for Uber Eats for Lent

Catholics Gave Up Paying for Uber Eats for Lent

This year for Lent, Catholics gave up paying for UberEats after a mandate straight from the Pope. 

“Stop giving your money to a greedy multi-national corporation for Lent,” said the Pope. “The Catholic church does not condone giving your money to an unethical company when that food could be obtained for free.” Catholics around the world heeded the call and started Frubering immediately.

Fruber (free uber) is achieved by placing a massive order on Uber Eats and then saying it never arrived. You get a refund and free food, the restaurant still gets paid, the driver isn’t liable so long as they took a photo, and only Uber’s insurance is out of pocket. 

“It barely even counts as stealing,” said Jesus. “I’d do it if I was around.”

So stick it to the man, know that Jesus is smiling down on you, and dine on the company card. For a company that is funded by the Saudi crown and treats its workers like shit, Uber’s policy has left it wide open to exploitations by good young Catholics.
