What. A. Dumbass.
A Colorado cab driver has been suspended from his job after forcing a blind woman to stow her seeing-eye dog in the trunk because of his pet allergies.
Denver resident Judie Brown was confused when the cabbie told her that the dog had to ride "in the back" of the cab because of he was allergic. When she asked, "Where in the back?" the driver responded "In the trunk."
Late for an appointment, Brown reluctantly agreed.
The black lab, Alberto, who has been Brown's service dog for four years, whined during the entire ride in the trunk.
"It was terribly wrong," Brown said of the situation, and the law is on her side: Colorado state law protects service dogs and their owners, allowing them to ride together in taxis and public transport.
That cabby deserves to ride around in a trunk for a while. Maybe even for a long while.
