3am and tipsy

Did you read the title? That's what's going on.

Just took a taxi home from the bar, and on the way (almost immediately actually), the driver pulls over to let someone else in. It's a bit strange, but whatever, I guess if we're headed in the same direction... But here's what pissed me off: the driver still expected my friend and I to pay the full fare!! What a jerkball! Just because we're foreigners, he thinks he can make us pay for someone else's ride? Bah, I say. BAH! So my friend and I ended up paying 15 out of 18. How annoying!

But now I will stop thinking about being ripped off and start thinking about my pillow....my flat, mediocre pillow...how enticing you are!

Don\'t you just hate it when taxi drivers try to take advantage of someone because there not from the area? What\'s the time zone difference where your at. I\'m in the atlantic time zone.

i think taxi drivers are (kinda) the same all over the world. in egypt our driver picked up local and dropped him off (while we were en route) without charging him at all!!! and he ripped us off because we hadn\'t exchanged our israeli shekels for egyptian pounds yet. the jerk!! and don\'t even get me started on the taxi drivers in jerusalem! I HATE TAXIS!!!!have a good day. :)

i had a cab driver once who didn\'t know where the hell he was going, and ultimately took the scenic route home. I yelled at him, told him it wasn\'t MY job to know where I was going. the cost was over $50/CDN and I told him to stuff it. He was pissed, but not my problem. If a consultant is called in to take care of MY job, he still gets paid whether I fix the problem or not. Goofs.
