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 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.
Just how many cabs are in key west? Do any of them have breaks that actually work?
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?
That’s just sick!
Better get a deposit up front!
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.
Oh no it’s Mr. Creosole! “I want everything on the menu, put in in a bucket with eggs on top!”
“And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint.”
I'm guessing this is part of a homo fascination with the underworld.
HIPSTERS/FOODIES are putting an egg on top of everything these days.
I never heard of Fantasy Fest, It sounds pretty crazy.
I’m actually surprised this is something new.
How are you feeling, sir?
Better. Better get a bucket.
50 dollars is nowhere near enough.
