$33 to downtown is "suggested fare."  I always haggle down to $40

It was some time ago, but I think I paid $60 with tip.  I *think*.

Last week I paid 60 with tip to O'Hare and 66 with tip back to HP. (!) There was so much traffic on the way back (rush hour) that I wish I'd taken the blue line downtown and cabbed it from there.

I'm totes bussing it back from Midway this week. Luxurious Southwest Airlines.

this method has consistently cost me $2.25, and they don't even expect tips.

You need to find a cabbie who's willing to agree, ex ante, to a fixed price.  If someone doesn't want to do that, either 1) guilt them ("oh, come on . . . you don't want to make an easy buck?  I'm just a struggling student") or 2) make up competition ("your buddie back there said it was $50, but I told him I could do better").

Thanks guys; I'm being reimbursed for the ride so I don't care what it costs but I want to make sure I have enough cash on hand.

Chicago cabs are required to accept CCs, so you always have that failsafe.

I'm getting a sick sort of satisfaction out of writing this Crim Pro topic proposal.  I bet writing the note will suck, though.
