By nobody asked you! - United States - New York
Today, is my first day as an expat. Hoping to arrive early for work, I hailed a cab. The driver took it upon himself to take the scenic route and play tour guide, no matter how much I refuse. Not only I was late, he turned violent when I refused to pay over $100 of fare, plus a "talent fee". FML

@chloe: The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and ... what? The river that catches fire? Being “not Detroit” makes my point,

@jbuckets: the cab driver actually kidnapped the OP and should be jailed.

Or at least the way the customer says to go. If customer simply wants the “fastest” way, or doesn’t say anything at all, yes the default always *has* to be the quickest they know of, or figure out the fastest on gps

I never said Americans don’t belong in the United States of America. But absolutely none of you, short of the natives, were originally from the USA. And by that I mean, if you follow the genealogy of any American, other than natives, far enough back it will always originate elsewhere. There is no bio marker for being an “American” but there sure as hell are bio markers for Native Americans. I suppose one could argue that even the natives aren’t native, that they crossed over the ice bridge from different parts of Asia, but then I guess one could also argue that if you’re a homo sapien, eventually your genealogy will trace back to Africa.
