Key West Cabs May Charge Vomiting Fee

Passengers in Key West cabs may be charged $50 cleanup fee for vomiting

Key West might be one of Florida's party capitals, but don't get too drunk.

The Miami Herald is reporting that Key West cabbies might soon start charging passengers who vomit in their cars a $50 cleanup fee.

According to the city's largest cab company, about five passengers vomit in its cars each year. Officials at Five 6's cab company say most of those happen on New Year's Eve and during Fantasy Fest, the city's 10-day party that culminates on Halloween.

Five 6's says that it would probably waive the fee for sober adults and children who get sick. The fee is aimed at drunks who vomit in a cab. That takes the car off the road for several hours to be cleaned, costing the company money.

The Officer asked the drunk "Why are you pulling a chain down the street?"

The drunk relied: "Have you ever tried to push one of these?"

The drunk hails a cabbie, sticks his head in the window and asks: "Do you have room for a pizza and a case of beer?"

The cabbie answers "Sure"...and the drunk vomits.

Although depending on the nationality of the driver, the puke might improve the smell in the cab.

They only have five people a year puking in their cabs? I think I got five cabs in one night after Miller’s wedding.

Sounds like Seinfeld when the parking valet with BO stunk up Jerry’s car.

They can’t stock their cabs with tall kitchen garbage bags?

Does the $50 include the wafer-thin mint?

Key west is a very ugly city.

It’s sad to see a bunch of old self centered gay people aging not so gracefully.

Between the snotty lesbians and the flamers, I was more than happy to take the bridge back to Miami.

Beautiful drive out and back though.

"Fantasy Fest, the city's 10-day party that culminates on Halloween"

I'm guessing this is part of a homo fascination with the underworld.

Halloween is a big holiday in the homoxexual community.

as it was explained to me, homosexuals feel free on Halloween because they have to wear masks, or be in the closet, the rest of the year.

not sure if this makes sense, but, it is a big event for homosexuals. Halloween is not just for children.

Chelsea Clinton best stay away from Key West.

She has been known to decorate the interior of cabs with the churning contents of her stomach.

I'm thinking its sloppy writing on the reporter's part. Probably meant to say that the average Key West cab gets vomited in five times a year. Not five times a year for all cabs. Otherwise, it would be a rare nuisance, not a problem.

Having worked in a bar in my younger years, if I only had to mop up vomit in the men's room once in a shift, it was considered a good night.

I had an egg in my Calzone or on my Bacon Cheeseburger before it was “hip.”

I was drinking coffee long before it was cool. How do you think I burned my tongue?

Cabs in Chicago already post a warning for a $50 puke cleanup fee.
