As an indian, i'm truly embarrassed by this. I fully support the hygiene standard. If you wanna be smelly, stay in India.

Creoena: Can we extend this to IT workers as well? Some of these guys who come over from India are seriously, seriously in need of a shower.

when I get into a cab and notice/smell that a homeless person is driving it, I always check the picture ID plaque for confirmation it is indeed the real cab driver.

////And since when are cab drivers chanting tea bagger mantra of government not regulating them?

"Basically they're saying, 'Treat us like adults,'" said Denise Movius, deputy director of the Department of Finance and Administrative Services, which oversees taxi regulations in the city of Seattle. "We don't dictate to any other business in the city how they should dress."

Um...yeah. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this law wouldn't be in place if there wasn't a serious, chronic problem with a significant percentage of the drivers in your industry. Other businesses don't have hygiene and dress codes imposed on them because they've shown that they're able to regulate themselves adequately. If your industry had proven their ability to regulate your public-facing employees, there would be no law. Your drivers stank and you didn't deal with the problem so the problem was dealt with for you. If you'd acted like adults from the beginning, you wouldn't be in this situation.

There was a picture I was going to label "future taxi driver," but then I thought maybe not. It's so NSFW I should link to it and warn my fellow Farkers. Then I thought, hey maybe I just shouldn't do anything with a picture of a naked Indian boy pissing out the side of a train.

Meanwhile @ Fark Rye's house...
