Today, I was late for work and took a taxi. The driver tells me he tried to commit suicide recently. I listen to him for 20mins, sat outside my workplace with the meter off. He charges me £5.80 and my boss gives me a warning for being late. FML

  • just know you did the right thing. you can't REALLY blame the boss tho, he's doing his job. Yea, its crappy, but just know karma owes you one and you only got a warning.

  • How did he get played by the driver if the meter was off? I don't get the point in telling us how much he charged you, since you clearly state the meter was not running after he stopped.
