Two years ago my parents came to visit me in Chia Yi during Chinese New Year. We got a cab from the train station and they bumped the price up $100nt, not alot but my dad was pissed. He said “The meter says $250 and that’s what I’ll pay.” I had to translate this to the cabbie and he said the extra money was for working during Chinese New Year.
Here’s my problem. If someone doesn’t want to work during the holiday they don’t have to. If they choose to work then they should charge the same price as any other day of the year.
Work or don’t but don’t overcharge people…that sucks!
