Crazy Cat People
A retired couple moving from Queens, NY to Sedona, AZ have decided to travel to their new home in true New York fashion: by taxi. That's right. Apparently, like many native New Yorkers, the couple does not drive and so have hired a taxi and negotiated a flat rate of $3,000 to take them all the way to Arizona. This is a bargain as compared to the metered fair which would come out to something like $5,000--each way. The couple will also pay for the cabbie's food and lodging along the way.
The reason for this marathon cab ride? The couple's cats. They did not want to subject their little kitties to a plane ride and so have decided to go by car. Of course, one has to wonder which the cats would prefer, a few hours in a carrying cage on a plane or days spent in the back of a New York City taxi.
No word yet on how the couple plans to live in Sedona, AZ without knowing how to drive. Good luck, folks!
