Vomit Bags

If you don't have Vomit bags stored in your car, you need too.

Paying for them ? Why? Stop by local Hospital, or any hospital in your travels, go to the Emergency waiting room and they typically have them in a box on the desk. Grab a few. If asked, tell them you drive a cab and need some - they usually agree and tell you to take as many as you need.

Or you don't have took be a cheapskate begger. CVS has a box of 8 that are perfect for cars (I keep one in each seat pocket behind the front seats) for about $8.00.

Ever been drunk and tried to open a vomit bag in time? I have. It's why I don't bother carrying them. Useless.

Go to the dollar store, and buy a small bathroom trash can. They're small enough that they fit under or between your seats, but they'll hold more puke than a bag will, they can't collapse, they don't need opening, and they're disposable/washable. When you get a bad drunk, put it right in front of them, tell them it's there. I've had two pukers, one got the door opened, the other used my bucket. Zero on the seats.

You're welcome. Seriously, the bags might as well be a rubik's cube to a drunk ready to heave.

I been driving a cab for 4 years, nobody vomited 48 oz's ever. And I work in Hipster party areas and a Wine Country. One person once got close.
I've been driving Uber for less than a year. You'd be unpleasantly surprised at the copious amount of beer and pizza that can violently come rocketing out of the stomach of a drunken 20 year-old sorority girl that has been to a keg party.

Maybe it's not 48 ounces. Perhaps its less, maybe 32 ounces, or even 24 - I'm not gonna measure the liquid volume to see.

But I'd rather have too big a bucket for them to puke in, than too small a bucket.

Capiche? :smiles:

Agree. An old space-saving EMS trick from back in the day before the nifty funnel bags were invented was to sandwich the opening of a small trash bag within a large needlepoint ring clamp. You could almost throw the entire thing over someone's head. We used to refer to having to deploy it on drunks as the "Ring Toss."

If people are drunk enough to throw up , no bag will hold it. Someone here stated that a women barfed in her own hand bag to avoid the fee.

Don't you wish sometimes it was legal to punch the crap outta a customer for vomiting in your car and not go to jail? What a wonderful world that would be

Well, UBER and LYFT do promote "Binge Drinking" with cheap rides home, even tho they pay 15 dollars a mixed drink and cover charges to get into the place. So as long as Cheap-O rides home are a thing, Binge Drinking will never stop. (The Millennial way of thinking)

The vomit bucket with a plastic bag from your local grocery store works well....doubles as a garbage can too.

When someone vomits in it, they can take the bag with them as a sourvenir...and then I ask then for a tip for saving them $150.

....youre welcome.

Thats not even close to truth. I've had many who vomited in the hospital bags, not a drop in the cab. I mean Wasted People. But for some reason they get it in the bag everytime. Then I make them take it with them as a present.

I've had three people throw up in my car. All managed to get it in the vomit bags. One actually used two bags but didn't spill any. Having said that I don't pick up people who look like they can't even handle a vomit bag.

Exactly what I use. I keep a tall kitchen trash bag in there as well, I wear latex gloves pull it out knot it up and hand it to pax. I have had atleast 20 riders use this, only once I didn't read the situation right and I got puke on my rubber mats. To be fair it was only 9:30pm so I didn't have my vomit meter turned on yet
