A couple is stuck with a $900 Uber bill after making multiple stops during a massive surge.

The Milwaukee couple had their driver make several stops, so they knew the ride would be a little more pricey, but they did not account for the 8x surge that was in effect due to a music festival. 

Uber was made aware of the situation but is holding the couple responsible for the full amount.
