Vomit

Posted on Monday, May 19th, 2014

Dave!Well today was pretty much a crap day.

In that it was a gorgeous day out and I had to stay inside working.

The only time I could escape was for a quick lunch downtown after making a trip to Dick Blick. Much to my surprise and delight, Chicago has been flooded by Pret A Manger, so I indulged in one of their Mediterranean Salad Wraps. Oh how I love Pret's fresh approach to fast food. They've only just arrived on the East Coast... but their move on Chicago has me hopeful that they'll reach Seattle eventually.

In other news that's unrelated entirely...

Taxi Vomit Fee = $50

   
Is it just me... or is $50 a shockingly inadequate amount of money to pay for puking in somebody's taxi? It costs at least that much to take a taxi from O'Hare to the city once you add a tip! I mean, come on, if somebody puked in MY taxi? Ain't no way $50 is going to cover it. The smell alone would make me puke all over my own cab... so there's at least $100 in charges right there.

Vomiting in a Chicago taxi is such an incredible bargain so far as entertainment is concerned, that I'm almost tempted to try it. Here's hoping that if I'm drunk enough to puke in a taxi that I'm drunk enough not to feel any shame afterwards.

Because isn't that the real price you pay?

    Like you, I feel compelled to vomit in the taxi because I can’t resist a good bargain.

    haha… they should just have an all plastic back seat compartment like city buses they can just hose down

    At my new job my desk faces a wall of huge windows. It was nice to be able to look out at nice day while I was here. Now they made that area an office and I have zero windows. It really sucks. Although I don’t work late so I shouldn’t even be complaining.

    I’ve puked in a friend’s car before (they were nice enough to drive my drunk ass home) and I offered to help clean up the next day. I’m sure $50 would have been more than enough to cover any wet dry vac treatment.
