Bad Cabbie!

I doubled with another woman going downtown the other morning. She was going a little further out of my way than I like, but it was a nice morning and I wasn't in that much of a rush so what the heck.

Driver got us near her spot, but on the wrong side of a couple of one way streets. Argued that she had told him the wrong address (I heard her too - she gave the right address, he screwed up). After he finally got turned around enough to get her to her job, and after she got out, he started ragging on her, then stopped and said, "but the customer is always right." I didn't say anything, at this point was just wanting to get to work. And then he almost hit a guy in a cross walk, right in front of a scooter cop, and got into a shouting match with the cop!

I guess the cop had better things to do, because he didn't arrest or ticket the driver, just told him to shut up before he would get arrested. So yes, got an earful of how horrible cops are after we started driving again.

In the end, what had started as a nice ride in good weather turned out to be a "just let me the hell out of here now" ride.

Definitely a person who can't accept responsibility for their own actions. What a jerk!

I never double up, it's not worth the trouble.
