An ideal intercept, while impossible on the 25m/s delta v of the old MMU, only actually needs 39m/s. Given a lighter weight, higher ISP advanced MMU and the initial disaster having lobbed them in generally the right direction. What isn't plausible, if they manage an intercept, is them doing anything more than destroying the ISS, continuing the Kessler Syndrome (it's another 39m/s to circularize and don't get me started on matching inclinations).

Uber isn't the restaurant. The Uber drivers are the restaurants that contract with a centralized booking and payment processing system that is Uber. You better believe the CC processing service for a restaurant is taking it's %age out of the entire CC transaction, be it line itemed for tax, tip or food.
