    Throw Up

    Say two people are in a car. The (voluntary) passenger gets car sick and tells the driver to pull over.

    The (voluntary) driver fails to do so, and the passenger throws up in the car (making an attempt out the window).

    Who should clean it up?

    The person who vomited (passenger). It is the driver's fault that the vomit is inside the car, but it's still the passenger's vomit. It'd be gross to make the driver clean it.

    Depends on the circumstances.

    Was the driver unable to pull over? If so, it really isn't their fault.

    If the driver failed to pull over because he was being an [BEEP] about it then he should clean it up. All other instances, I think the passenger should. It's his vomit after all.

    I would clean up my own vomit regardless of the circumstances

    Yeah... Seems wrong to make someone else do it.

    Unless I was dying and this was on the way to the hospital and I had to stay there for a few days, then it might be kind of them to do it. But otherwise no I guess!

    Maybe both can chip in and clean it up

    I would probably clean up my own vomit - unless the driver was being an asshat on purpose.

    Haha, Bob. I thought that said chin.

    If the driver didn't want to pull over, so the person could vomit, I don't see why the driver shouldn't clean it up. To me, it's not a matter of the person who vomited has to clean it up. The driver has no excuse for not pulling over unless the driver couldn't at that moment. Otherwise, I'd make the driver clean it up. It would be the driver's fault for not simply pulling over. The least the driver could do is clean it up.

    Same question I'd ask. If they had ample time & opportunity to pull over but instead said "No, we're going to keep on driving" then I'd say they can clean up the puke that their actions put in their car.
