I'm not sure why I was thinking about the guy, he's pretty much been gone for quite a while.
He got cut up in a robbery. Back then, many of the Dodge Diplomats had cloth seats. I got to drive the cab with his blood all over the cloth seat for months. I never liked it, but the company couldn't care less, so there was no point in complaining.
How would you like driving a cab with your friends blood staining the drivers seat? Not a trivial amount either, a lot of blood.
