February 17, 2008 – Creepy Dennis
Pretty quiet night tonight. Every night we get a lull in business between 11:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. so the drivers gather around and chat and line up our cabs for potential customers. Some of us are more personable than others, and then there’s drivers like Dennis… A few minutes ago a couple came up to Dennis and asked for a ride.
Dennis: (Says nothing)
Customers: Are you available? (This is an honest question, there are several cabs lined up in the area, and it’s possible that Dennis is just taking a break.)
Dennis: No, I’m just here for my fucking health.
Customers: Excuse me?
Dennis: I said I’m just here for my fucking health.
Customers: Ok… Nevermind then.
The customers ended up taking Dennis later that night - I can only imagine how awkward that was… Some of our customers refuse to ride with Dennis for some reason or another. Most likely because he’s a prick.
Frank Menderson is one of them. He’s a character himself but that’s another story. My best guess is that Dennis tried to fondle Frankie at some point. Dennis is a creepy old man who has been driving cab for like 15 years who is seen by other drivers frequenting transvestite bars outside of work. He’s in his 60’s, and looks like your typical sex offender. Quite like Kirk actually. Something off of Broadway I believe, I think it’s called “Chee Chee.” I have no idea what goes on in there and honestly I don’t care to. Hey whatever, to each his own.
If nothing else it looks like total shithole – don’t think anyone is going to debate me on that one… Just another wack-job that Catherine keeps around because he works a shift that no one else wants to work.
