I Think I Just Got Ripped Off

I'll be surprised if I did not

Ordered up a Town Car to run my ass to the Airport as it is almost, if not, cheaper than a cab in this weather and they will not dick you on going 12 mph either

The dude on the phone did not sound too reliable and wanted the 4 dig # from my Amex and Billing Address? - Hmmmmm

Oh well, Amex will cover and Fraud but I am more worried about the Car not showing up

Anyone going by O'hare from Downtown? - Say about 11am? - Yes, I'll tug it as you drive but DO NOT pop in my eye - That is the quickest way I know to ruin Xmas

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

For them to run the card, they need that info.

As far as giving a ride, I am sure someone will be up on that offer, afterall the economy is tough and it is Christmas season.

Don't need it, but it makes it cheaper on their end, and also helps eliminate fraud on their end.

Town Car Bro - It's $50 to the Airport - Cabs can get over that right quick with traffic and the town car will not smell like puke, BO and Pine Tree air freshener

Why not take the red line to the blue line, drops you off inside the airport. If you just have a small bag it's not a big deal...and cheap.

But every once in a while, you get lucky and get the ones that smell like lost hopes and broken dreams ie strippers just got out.
