PainInTheASP: I always thought that the finish was more of a "limburger-scented used toilet paper".
Zeeba Neighba: And now.... A new edition of Cash *BLARRGHH!!* Cab!/keep the money..just let me out...
msP: FTA: The proposal also calls for drivers to take a cabbie quiz testing their command of the English languageIn London all the cabbies are required to pass a test showing they know the fastest and/or cheapest way to get someone somewhere. Making the cabbies speak English doesn't seem like a huge requirement to me.
Absurdity: "I don't know if that smell is you,your car, something you are or something you are about to eat, but good God man, you're in the service industry!"
BabyOtter: PainInTheASP: I always thought that the finish was more of a "limburger-scented used toilet paper".Do I detect a note of "wet dog on a tire fire"?
p the boiler: The attire and stink parts of the proposal are crap, the others I can get behind.If a cabbie wants to wear jeans and have a personality - great, more power to him.If they smell like the back of a ball sack and mothballs - find another cab. If they lose business due to stink then they will figure this hygiene thing out themselves
Ex-Texan: Taking a cab in Vegas,m that used to be an adventure. I tremember riding through residential neighborhoods, on my way from the airport. Cabbie said it was normal. Oh, OK, no. There's been s couple times I've walked to/from the airport on gambling trips there, a lot more direct, and the walking was just about as fast too.
"I want them to be the ambassadors, and be the representatives for our city," said Dafna Gauthier
humanconditioner: There was a time long ago when Dennis Miller was mildly amusing. Thanks for the walk down memory lane subby.
carrion_luggage: I once attempted to get into a cab in NYC -- the stench was so overpowering I literally staggered backwards to get away from it. If I had to describe it, I would liken it to a heap of urine-soaked clothing marinated in more urine, then baked inside a pig's rectum, stuffed into a camel's rectum, urinated on some more, set on fire, then served on a bed of dog shiat.
Badgers: So from now on they'll just smell like a rotting horse carcass that's been embalmed with 7 gallons of cheap aftershave, like the Persians that drive around here?
Clemkadidlefark: Last cab ride I took was around 1984, unlicensed car jamming 5 inside headed from Fort Lesley McNair to Reagan National .. with an Iranian national behind the wheel of a Chevy Caprice with (apparently) dead shocks, sagging leaf springs and worn tires. Careening out to the passenger drop off I could hear two business men crammed into the back seat imploring God and the one woman keening like it was a Korean funeral.Have not gotten in a cab since. And won't ../ride was only $10, though
