When I was a supervisor for community living, one of our clients “had an accident,” which is to say she took a sh!t and peed in a staff person’s car.
I got an OK from the finance office to approve a detailing, and told the staff person to get the works. I found someone to finish out her shift, so she could go straight there.
She really did. She had the entire front and back cleaned, as well as the outside, and had it waxed. I didn’t blink; I just signed off on it. The woman had feces in her car. I didn’t want her to quit. It cost about $130 in the 1990s. Minus the wax and the front seat, it probably would have been about $75 just for the de-sh!tting. She was pretty upset about the mess in the car, and happy with the results.
Now, I could tell you that the client didn’t have any blood/fecal-borne diseases. Our clients were tested and vaccinated, unless they objected, but this client didn’t have the communication skills to object, and we had guardianship of her.
If I were a cabbie post-1985, I’d have to worry about fluid-borne pathogens. But if it’s your own car, and you know your status, that’s a completely different thing.
