December 30, 2008 – New Years Eve
New years eve wasn’t bad this year. For my 12 hours I made about $500. The office tried to jerk me around and crappy rides from the hotel to all of the local restaurants. You know, that same hotel that doesn’t like to wait for us when it’s slow and puts our rides in their illegal town car service and unlicensed cabs from San Diego.
I just turned off my radio so that I don’t have to listen to Julie squawking or Catherine’s desperation. Then there's the terrible radio etiquette and the drivers “walk” all over the other cabbies' trying to call in. So nobody ends up getting through. It’s a real mess.
Today is one of those days that I just do what I want. I pick up people wherever they need a cab and bring them wherever they want to go. I ended up all the way by Carlsbad at the end of the night. It's much more efficient this way. Catherine called my four times and left four separate messages. I’ll probably check them tomorrow. Or I may just delete them.
