November 22, 2008 – Cadaver Cab
Today I heard several funny stories about “Jorge.” You may remember Jorge as the driver who pees in a milk carton in his van and stuffs it under the seat for his cab partner to find.
Lets be blunt - Jorge is an asshole, and isn’t very inviting towards the passengers either. Often he’s downright mean. Well today it came to bite him. I don’t know exactly what happened but it turns out that one of the local bar owner’s son punched Jorge right in the side of the head and then ran off.
The driver I spoke to said that Jorge was almost crying, yelling into the radio for help. If only he had taken the time to learn even halfway decent English, one of us could likely have helped him. Jorge was ok, he just left with hurt feelings.
I was also told a story about how Jorge was stealing urinal cakes down from the Loews Coronado Hotel, over on Coronado Island, to “freshen” his cab with. Personally that one seems too good to be true, but more and more I see things equally ridiculous happening here on a weekly basis, so who really knows.
One thing that I do know for sure is that Jorge is no longer allowed at the Glorietta Bay Inn, or any of the daytime cab drivers for that matter, because of what he did in the hotel’s bathroom. I don’t know what exactly was done, but they brought out caution tape, yes, yellow CAUTION TAPE to close it off. Like the stuff you would see at a crime scene. The employees at the Glorietta Bay were not pleased.
