The Dad's Cab Meter is a fake taxi fare counter for parental chauffeurs, made so they can guilt/embarrass their ingrate children into doing chores for them. The meter incrementally increases the pretend fare and comes with a stack of fare receipts that have chores the kids can do as payment (har har har). It's kinda like those redonkulous moments on The Cosby Show where the entire family would participate in a role-play with some sort of real-world moral to it, except not anywhere as funny. Dad's Cab is $18, but in the grand scheme of things, mortifying your children is priceless. [Gizoo via Coolest Gadgets via Dvice]
I think this is stupid and just gives into that stupid shit about how parents have it tough.
you had kids
they can't drive
so YOU BE THE PARENT
and do it.
If they are of driving age and have a job or deserve it
THEN get em a car if it bothers you so much.
If they are of driving age and no job or dont deserve it
give em a pogo stick and tell em to get lost.
