PASSED OUT

I was rolling down Wisconsin avenue near the National Cathedral when some chics driving beside me honked and pulled me over. I thought they wanted directions but what they wanted was to dump their toasted friend in my back seat and move on to the next party.

She wanted to be dropped off at her apartment on 5th and Massachusetts ave, It was a real struggle for her because she had to think for a minute to figure out where she lives. She passed out soon after and I was really worried that she may throw up, I unsuccessfully tried to wake her up so I just continued to drive nervously.

It took me about couple of minutes of yelling and shaking to wake her up when we got to her place. I thought she was dead or something but good thing she started to whisper "Please let me sleep! Leave me alone!" and that's when I took this poor quality cell-phone snap shot.

After she paid the fare she asked me from where she was picked from, and when I bull-shitted that I picked her up from a DC jail, she got out the cab and started throwing up all over the driveway and sprinted towards the lobby.

Please don't forget the homeless,

Mad Cabbie.

Her friends should have been decent enough to take her home themselves.

Glad she didn't puke in your cab ...

answer sometime how cab drivers generally feel about picking up passengers with their cats in carriers going to the vets. I'm always scared shitless my cat will pee in the cab and fast him in advance just to be sure he won't
but always feel like the cab driver regrets picking me up.

What's your take, Mad Cabbie?

man, i don't know how you do it. i haven't worked the night shift yet and have no desire to experience that kind of stuff.

Haha! That is priceless, especially since she waited to puke until she was out of your cab.

Drunks pay up front and do not smoke (I generally allow smoking in my cab, even though I do not smoke. I do not need my Nanny the Gubbamint to tell me how to run my business). Drunks are also warned that if they ralph in my cab, there is a three hundred dollar clean up charge. If they tell me when they are about to ralph, I have no problem pulling over and even helping them out so that they can ralph.

I will also carry animules, in a box, or not, but, again, I warn the owner that there is a three hundred dollar clean up charge. If the animal bites, there is a one-thousand dollar charge. The only animal that I used to refuse was a Doberman Pinscher, but since I now have the partition, I will even haul them, these days.

Since the wife has put some of her Tweety Birds in the cab, cat owners have been reluctant to bring their cats into the cab, because, as everyone knows, Tweety Birds are hazardous to the health of Bad Ol' Puddy 'Tats.

Man, Mad, your camera phone has a French impressionist/Monet kinda feel to it.

Hey Mad! Glad that chick got out of your cab before she hurled. Up front clean up fee or not, I'm sure you've better things to do.

I don't know what Thruhike98 says about your camera phone picture; it just looks blurry to me.

Sounds like my kind of woman.

Unfortunately she was probably too wasted to remember your line about the jail.
