Snow Job

Some years back, when I lived in Adams Morgan, we had one of those giant snowstorms we have once every decade or so. It was back in the days when I was poor so I rarely got anywhere near the inside of a cab. I was walking up past the Hinkley Hilton on Conn., and there was a cab that was trying to go up Columbia, but stuck in the snow and going nowhere fast.

A another woman who was walking along and I got behind the cab and helped push it out of the snow it was stuck in. Once we got him a little more up the road, he stopped the cab and offered us a ride. The other woman was heading downtown, and I laughed and said I only lived two blocks away. He kept insisting, so I got in and had a free ride for two blocks. I think that was the only cab ride I had that whole year.
