On Toronto Taxi Drivers
I get irritated with Toronto taxi drivers. They’re like police officers: never around when I need one. But there are tons of taxis around when I don’t need one. And that is when the taxi drivers stop, honk their horns and ask, “Where are you going? Need a taxi?” Do the drivers think that I don’t know how to hail a cab?
Toronto taxi drivers are desperate and it looks good on them. They are often rude and their cabs are dirty. I have seen drivers sit in the car while old ladies struggle with their bags to open the back door to get in. I have yet to see a driver get out of the taxi and open a door for any passenger.
All power to Uber! Uber drivers are courteous, and they have clean cars. I have seen them open doors for passengers.
Today, on my way to the library, a taxi driver stopped and honked at me shouting, “Where are you going? Need a taxi?”
“I’m going crazy, and I don’t need a taxi to get there.”
