We’ve all been there before — the window doesn’t roll down, there’s a mysterious stain on the cracked plastic seat, your “emergency $20″ is nowhere to be found but it appears that a friend has thrown up its equivalent in shots and you just hope to make it home…or to the next bar. Aren’t cab rides great?
Cabbies are as varied as the cars they drive. Some want to join your party, while others only have an interest in the voice on the end of their bluetooth. Some accept more “creative” forms of payment as the rest berate you for asking if they take credit. But at the end of the night, whether they act as makeshift therapists, GPS gurus, enablers, tour guides, silent judgment-passers or party starters, they get you where you need to be. This post goes out to the cab drivers, even when they lie about their meter being broken.
