“No, I would not because it makes me think about the ‘Seinfeld’ episode where it is running down the street and nobody catching me.”

“I would not use it as a novelty, but if the cost was cheap enough, I might use it just to get a few blocks down the street.”

“I don’t think I would. It’s too small down here … and I need the exercise.”

I could see something really bad happening on the way down 14th from the top of the hill.

Paraeducator?
Does the rickshaw have cup holders?

Could we get chariots pulled by polar bears instead? That'd be cool!

Downtown is hardly big enough to justify anything but walking. Although those brightly colored Tuk Tuk's they use in Southeast Asia might be a fun alternative.

Only if it's being driven by a smelly homless person who kneels down so my wife and I can step on his back to get into the carriage. It would also be nice to supply a whip or in the least a riding crop. They can be paid with our food scraps or maybe just lick the grease off our fingers, although that seems a bit unsanitary. . . better install hand sanitizer dispensers as well.

That's hilarious. I bet he took a lot of crap for that as a kid, though.
