Today, I rode in the cab on the way back to my dorm from the airport. The taxi driver was on the phone and not really paying attention. I paid him and got out of the cab, but he drove away before I could get my luggage out of the trunk. FML
Next time....get your luggage first, THEN pay
There is nothing more rude to me than cab drivers on the phone, specifically when I'm trying to interact. I'm not against using the phone driving, because to me, it's no different than talking to someone else that's in the car, and as far as a cab driver goes, I'd rather have him or her talking to someone else than trying to make small talk with me ... but, when I'm being picked up or dropped off, I want to know that they heard everything I said. I was on vacation once, and my hotel was on the corner of Sunrise Blvd and Birch St. Dude takes me to the corner of Sunset Blvd and Birch St. There's a mall there. No hotels. I see the street sign, realize his mistake, and correct him. He's still on the phone, holding my door for me, waiting for me to get out. Finally I get loud. He takes me to the correct location, twenty minutes the other way. I refused to pay for the 'second' trip. An argument ensued, but luckily I had all my stuff with me so he couldn't pull a fast one and drive off with it and eventually I just went into the hotel. He didn't follow me. Guess he realized he was wrong and being stupid for arguing with me.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
