Meet Ramez Akladious, the worst - and most dangerous - taxi driver in the city.

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"!

Combat pay? Huh!
We pay one of the highest total tax rates in the country between City State and Federal income taxes and obscene property taxes.

Given the same income, my standard of living is probably half what it would be in Florida.
