Thumbs up Kudos to limo company owner!

The owner of the limo company/car service we use to takeouts the airport posted this on his Facebook tonight.

Sorry kids no drinking in my limos! Picked up prom kids at 6:15pm called parents and removed them at 6:45pm. I feel bad for the parents that put up the money.
I love it!!! He added that he had received cash up front!

It sounds like the parents were still out their money, but as a parent, I would appreciate the fact that he didn't allow the kids to drink.

ETA: And my kid would be reimbursing me for whatever money I had lost - whether it be money or working off the debt.

To copy the OP's first post. Too many people delete it if they don't have enough people agreeing with them.

What do you mean? It doesn't sound like the driver lost any money.

I think you misread the post you quoted. They were saying that the driver could have just let the kids be reckless since he already got his money, but he chose to do the right thing and inform the parents.

Oh, I guess that could be what was meant? Anyway from what I know of renting limos for prom, it's usually in the contract that any alcohol in the car results in getting kicked out with no refund. I totally agree with this of course and it could be a big liability issue for them if they didn't do that. At a couple of the proms my dds went to, the drivers actually checked bags etc. before the kids got in the limo.

That is what I meant. He could have very easily blown it off just to get a tip, maybe, at the end of the night. I'm glad he did the right hing.

Times have changed. One prom limo driver stopped at the liquor store and bought our liquor. And another parked the limo and walked around the block a few times so we could fool around!

By the way, when did everyone turn into their parents?

LOL---we brought a cooler into the limo with alcohol for our prom! I know the drinking age back then was 18 but I had just turned 17 so I was underage and some of the others dates were not seniors either so they were underage, it was no big deal then.

When we became parents!

Good for the limo driver. He deserved to keep the fee and frankly, I would have tipped him.

Considering that the boys in question are only 16-18 years old, one lap around the block should have given more than enough time!

When they became owners of a couple million dollars worth of vehicles, a lucrative airport contract and facing a sue happy public. Not to mention it is illegal in my state for underage kids to drink and the driver who permits it can be fined and arrested plus lose all of those contracts.

He posted later that one of the parents threatened to sue to get their money back (inspite of signing a contract which stated all of the terms) when they had to pick up their kids.
