No-Hurl Zone

If you're out binge drinking in Chicago, you might want to carry a little extra money around with you before attempting to make your way home in a taxi...

The drivers want to charge a $50 “clean-up fee” for inebriated passengers who lose their lunch in the back of the cab.

“If somebody throws up in the back of a cab, it’s no laughing matter to that cabdriver, who now has to take a couple of hours to detail the cab. It’s hard to get that smell out if you’ve ever experienced anything like that.”

I don't think that's unreasonable.

However, I also think they should offer passengers a 50% discount if the overwhelming smell of Drakkar Noir or B.O. inside the cab is determined to be the sole reason for the intestinal outburst.

When I was 16 I got the flu in NYC. I hurled nonstop in a cab but at least I used my Bloomingdale's bags! Not one bit got in the cab. If you are a hurling drunk, at least bring your Bloomies bags. A great way to recycle!

You're a very creative lady! I hope that you had taken your merchandise out of the bags before the hurling began.
