[quote=“PigBloodCake”]Geez, I need money to feed my family. Can’t get a job and so…sigh…off we go driving a cab.
Oh look, a long-nose. Ka’ching!
Me: Where you want go? [let me press the meter now…hehehe]
Long-nose: Please take me to Taipei Main Station.
Long-nose: Tai-Bei-Cher-Zan [what a douchebag]
Oh, 台北車站. Hmm…instead of going straight on 忠孝東路, I’ll just do a right on 復興北路…get really close to the airport before making a left on 民權西路…go all the way until I hit 承德路 and then make a left…go all the way and…voila. 台北車站.
On the way to 台北車站:
Long-nose: Are you sure this is the way? [this guy must be milking me]
Me: Huh? Me no Engoolisu. [shit…he’s getting suspicious]
Long-nose: Aren’t we suppose to go straight on Zhongxiao East Road? [goddamn it! This asswipe is really milking me alive]
Me: No-no-no. This-this-this [continue to point straight even though I’m already on 復興北路]
Long-nose: What the F! $250 NT?
Me: Yeah, two-five-lero.
Long-nose: [what a fucking asshole…man, if I weren’t a foreigner, I woulda beat the living crap outta this fucker]
Yeah! Another sweet $250 NT for my little young’uns and some bin-lan (and check out some bin-lan babes as well ).[/quote]
I had that exact driver a few months ago! Not to the same destination, but he took a much longer route, so what was usually a 160-170 fare turned into 260. On top of that, he shortchanged me which i didnt knowuntil after he took off, his cab license on his dash was covered up by something, and the license behind the passenger seat was missing. Twice i asked him if he knew where he was going, he acted dumb: dui ah, you want to go to bei an lu ah! Its my fault for not knowing the route, but now i do. And when i get in i always tell them which route to take now. Gosh, i was livid! But it was my bad. And i dont hail a cab if i dont need to anymore. Always call for one 55688.
