taxi stories



I ran an errand on friday during the day. Right outside my office building a taxi pulled up to drop someone off, so i waited for the customer to get out... he slid open the door (it was one of those minivan types) and i saw that there was an enormous amount of floor space and the seats were at the back of the car. Also, strewn about the floor was a lot of stuff of the customers... his jacket, shopping bags, umbrella.. and i was standing in the rain anxious to get in! He managed to gather all his belongings, and i hopped in, thinking, what a careless slob for just throwing everything down on the floor of a taxi (gross!).

anyway, so i sat down, yelled my destination (because i am so far away from the driver) and we took off. soon after, i realized why the previous guys stuff was all over the place. The driver liked to slam on the breaks and well, with the first SLAM, everything, including me, went flying off the seat! i managed to just stand on my feet and hold the handle, but my umbrella i had resting vertically and my bag that was sitting next to me, quickly landed on the floor. oops.
