We never had a fare of over $7 in NYC this weekend and our first driver took us the total ass-backwards way to the hotel...we're dividing by 3 so it shouldn't be too bad.

I was confused. No I wouldnt think it would cost that much if we are closer to our destination. It should be half that at most I would think.

I just think he's probably not a weirdo like me who is online all the time. If I email Alli it could be days before she responds sometimes. She'll finally email and say she hasn't been online for a few days. SHe does not have email at her work just home. I can't imagine not turning on my computer for a few days.

yeah I don't remember spending too much on cabfare in NYC or Chicago when I've been there in the past. I just kept thinking of my last cab experience and that was $40+ a few times.

I don't think the hotel has a shuttle I didnt see that option when I booked but I'll check again. Then it will be $40 to and from the airport unless we want to figure out the subway thingy with our luggage.

I dont think we'll have to worry about the monstrous cabfare we had the last time. We could easily do this trip cheaper since we can have some free afternoon entertainment before the show and some window shopping on Sunday.

I was just wondering about the shuttle thing.

there's no hotel shuttle and it says that a trip from Ohare would run about $40.00

Damn right.


By the way I've had to deal with the old mail dude at our post office the last few times I've gone in and he bugs me. He assumes that anytime I have something to send I'm and ebay person and makes a snarky comment. I almost told him...dude the postal service should embrace ebayers as they are bringing them money in the age of online bill payment in order to avoid postage.

No kidding, the internet really keeps the postal service afloat, strangely enough...e-mail may have replaced letters but there's E-bay, bootleg b&p's...all sorts of things!

Except when they lose stuff.

You could go to work for me and have to deal with the sex obcessed corner....that corner scares me....and the crack boy apparently got into a fight with his new neighbors or something and it involved him throwing an apple at a childs head in anger. Then there is my favorite person...Ms. M. I hate my job right now.

I'll trade you the HML for the SOC. I'm not kidding.

You have to work with her tomorrow? That stinks.
