I HATE BOSTON CABS. Say it with me, I HATE BOSTON CABS.
Seriously, I just don't get the system. I always thought of it as this: you're a taxi driver, I tell you where I want to go, you take me there, then I pay and tip you. But no, not for Boston cabs. They pick and choose where they want to go. I can't even begin to count the amount of times I've been denied a cab ride. Whether I was trying to go to Emerson College or home to Revere after a night out, NEVER once has the first cab I flagged down agreed to drive me. Am I asking for too much here? You can't drive me over the Tobin?
These cab drivers turn me into a raging lunatic. All I want to know is WHY? Why won't you drive me back to school so I don't have to walk and fear getting mugged, or worse. (Or in cold weather, freeze.) Why won't you drive me back to Revere? Do you think you won't be back in time to have more business?
It's beyond me, but I've come up with a plan. I'm writing a letter to the Mayor of Boston. I've said it before but this time it's happening. This raging lunatic is not letting a cab deny her anymore. I refuse to wait an hour for that one nice cab driver who says yes. There's going to be some changes around here.
THE MAYOR WILL HEAR ABOUT THIS.
