Step On It

I have a friend who keeps a driver on retainer. When he drinks to excess he simply calls his man and orders another round as he waits for his ride to appear. I mocked my pal the last time I saw him break out this routine, but I was actually kind of envious. I’ve never been aboard this locally-based "Magic Bus." I do know that riding on chartered buses with a keg on tap at business conventions is ridiculously fun.

    Just out of curiosity, how much does he pay for this designated driver on retainer? Is this DDOR accepting new clients? How does he handle conflicts?

    I'm guessing the cost is somewhat more than taxi tabs, but hideously less expensive than the accumulated costs of a DUI.

    I think all your assumptions are correct. I'm too much of a gentleman to ask what my pal pays. I got the impression that the driver lets his clients know that conflicts are resolved financially, if you know what I mean (and I think you do).
