    When I saw the thread title, my first thought was: did the princess flee to Rio?

    My mind was in the same place. This stuff must happen more than we all realize.

    $7,300 and change, $7.4 million... there's some difference in scale here, but the Rio guy did have over 3 grand or so in Caiparinhos alone. Nice work.

    He enjoyed the drink, but not the bill for them....!!! Indeed, 7.3k sound a mere pittance against the 7.4m of the princess!;)

    So I believe we have now found a more cost effective strategy than accumulation points and miles, Run like HELL! :p

    Wait... so if you're planning to skip on the bill, why would you have the hotel call you a cab to go to the airport?

    The stupidity level is off the scale there... even if it was hard to get a cab, you can just tell them you're going downtown or something and then tell the cabbie that you wanna go to the airport instead, not the hotel.
