The Vomit Tax

This sign was posted in a recent cab ride from downtown Denver to the airport. It would be $100.00 US for the ‘privilege’ of vomiting during this ride.

The Vomit Tax: $100.00

Now I know that these cab drivers must get a lot of drunks in their vehicles, but my first thought was, “Hey, if you don’t want me to vomit, stop the erratic driving!”  The cost for cleaning up the vomit is roughly twice the cost to get to the airport  – it almost made me think they had some incentive going on here.

    I drive a cab and believe me when someone throws up in my cab its a big problem. I have to first clean that crap and than wste time cleaning, so who should pay me for my time?

    I don’t disagree that it is a problem. I just thought it was a funny sign to see while on my way to the airport. I made an assumption that the normal vomiters are likely too intoxicated to even read the sign :)
