Taxi 2

My lord! They did it again! Yesterday I asked for them to come at 9:30 (that's 10 minutes earlier than before) and this time they were 20 minutes late. I got to work at exactly 10:00 which is not good! There's is prep work that needs to be done at my job. And my cab driver was this really old dude that, unlike most old people, drove really fast. Given the fact that he was so friggin late I didn't care how fast he drove but he couldn't hear a damn thing I was saying.

Me: Make a left at the light?
Driver: Make a right?
Me: No, at the next LIGHT make a left.
Driver: Turn right now?
Me: NO!

Later...
Me: OK now a right at this light up here
Driver: Right here? (almost stops completely in the middle of the road)
Me: No, up at the light. The light! Right there (pointing to the traffic light)
Driver: Right?
Me: Yes, a right up at the light!

I was already at my wits end from pacing back and forth outside my house for 20 minutes I was really not in the mood to deal with this. And because such I'm such a friggin nice person I still gave him a good tip, which I'm really regretting right now. To make matters worse I had a terrible day at work that day and even though I was only working for 5 hours my back was killing me. The icing on the cake was that I walked home again that day! You can probably assume that after the day I had it was the last thing I wanted to do but it had to be done. I was not going to pay for 2 cabs in one day, I refuse. Way too much money.

I just got off the phone with the taxi people before I wrote this. This time I told them 9:20 which means I'm getting up earlier than need be. I'm going to call it right now, THIS will be the one time they come ON TIME and I'm going to get to work 30 minutes early and have to sit there like an idiot. Either that or they will come late, so either way I'm going to be pissed and going to tell you all about it next post.

Good news is that hopefully my car will finally be getting towed to the shop tomorrow! Then I get to sit back and enjoy as the mechanic drains me for every penny I have to my name and I will once again be broke and unable to do anything. It's really going to be fantastic!
