Stopping for Susan?

A couple of friends (and friends of friends) have sent over stories to include. Here's one of them.

Susan lives on upper Connecticut Ave. She called Diamond Cab for a taxi one morning. She gave the address and went downstairs to wait. It was cold out, so she waited just inside the door. About 15 minutes later, a Diamond cab pulled up in front of the building, slowed down, and as she walked out the door to get into the cab, sped up and left. Susan & a passerby both waved and shouted at the cab but it kept going. Where? Uh... just up the street. Across the street just half a block away the cab turned around to pick up a woman who was flagging down a cab on the street. The same cab then came back, stopped in front of Susan and she got in. The first woman got out at her stop, and Susan was taken to hers. When she got there - the driver wanted the extra dollar for it being a called-for cab. Susan refused, pointing out that the guy just drove off without even stopping at the address and probably wouldn't even have come back for her if she hadn't been shouting for him as he drove off.

Good for her, very poor form on the driver's part. Clowns like this are why many people just assume that I'm a moron and/or schemester.
