The best was when I was getting out of the business and drove the last week without putting my hack license up over the glove box.
People would get in and ask where how come my license wasn't displayed, and I would explain that I if had to beat the crap out of some pain in the ass passenger, I didn't want them to know my name.
Boy that was fun, 99% of the passengers were democrats.
I’m sure he’s a nice guy once you get to know him.
The LAST & I MEAN LAST time I was in NYC I think I may have had a ride in this guy's hack!
I had about 20 blocks to go and hailed a cab
The driver stopped just long enough for me to get in (roaring off before I even closed the door).
For the first 5 to 10 blocks, he had a loud, verbal argument with himself (never listening to where I wanted to go) and running several redlights (while pounding the dash of his cab)!
After yelling several times that I was where I needed to go, he swerved to the curb and I dumped more than the indicated fare in the front seat AND FLED!
The "Joy" of the subway for the remaining half of my journey was FAR better (though if you have been there..., you know this is rather "tongue in cheek".)
My Father was from Brooklyn and I visited NYC numerous times over my lifetime but happily, never again! In my opinion, NYC residents deserve "combat pay" for supporting the "Financial Capital of the World"!
It would be really funny if his middle name happened to be Wayne.
It reminds me of the joke: Somebody has an appointment with the world’s worst doctor today.
Lets see, NY city attractions: concrete, asphalt, dirt, traffic, high crime,(and I can't CCW=high crime) people, people, people and more people. Ya, thats were I want to go to relax,,,, NOT!
I refuse to visit any state where my right to self defense is limited to fists against guns/knives.
In my state, you come after me with a box cutter and you will be found guilty of bringing a knife to a gun fight.
On 08/28/01 we had a cab driver in Chicago. Nasty. If looks could kill we would have been chopped liver. Dropped us off at the wrong location and way overcharged us for where we went. Looking at his license, I made the comment, “Wow, I bet he had a hard time getting into the US.” My wife looked me and asked, “Who’s Bin Laden?”
