May 11, 2008 – Party Cab
Today a cab patron of mine told me that there is a driver downtown who calls his taxi “Party Cab.” I guess that there’s a spinning disco ball dangling from the ceiling and loud music. Oh, and drinking too, and not just by the passengers. The driver drinks too. He’s in there slamming beers with the passengers. What the fuck? I can only imagine how many laws are being broken by that guy…
The passengers think that this is cool too, at least the ones that I talked to. I guess the guy that drives “Party Cab” is some hippy that’s been driving a cab for years downtown. From what they described he sounds like a real space cadet. The creepy old guy that goes to the high school parties. To each their own, but I think the first thing that I would look for in a taxi driver was that they were sober? Otherwise what’s the point of me taking a taxi? I could save a lot of time and money by driving around drunk myself.
