Do Taxi Drivers Ride in Taxis?

To the drivers out there. When you're visiting another town, or for whatever reason, do you ever take cabs? And if so, what's your reaction to how the cabbie operates? Are you a perfect passenger? Do you swap tales of bizarre passengers and woe? Do you complain if he/she does something wrong?

I use a taxi whenever i want to go drink.I always say its cheaper to pay a cab driver than a lawyer and you cant kill someone from the backseat.I never reveal that i drive i just sit back and take the ride.

About three years ago I was in a cab in Copenhagen Denmark, The hot looking female cab driver didn't give a shit that I was a fellow cabbie from Washington DC, she was telling me how dumb asses we are by going to war in Iraq and I wasn't paying much attention of what she was saying, my eyes were glued to her boobies.

The fun is taking a taxi and not letting the driver know that I drive cab too. It is interesting to hear their views on driving cab, gas prices, the city and traffic. The most enlightening though, is the route they choose to get me to my destination and if they are receptive to my suggestions.

If I am going out to party with friends or a dinner where I'll have a couple of drinks, I always take a cab.

I do not drink heavily and doubt that I ever reach a 0.08% blood-alcohol content, but I just don't want to risk the chance of being wrong.

I drive a cab in DC and take cabs if I must. My only horror story is the driver who picked me up not knowing that he was taking me to my cab. He tried to over-charge me and I ended up having to show him what my fare was using the fare chart. Needless to say he blew his tip.
