    Like dat everyone will be happy.

    how heavy can the bowling balls be? i guess the cabby is just worried they'll roll around and damage somethng.

    for rueyloon's case....

    IMO your "straight down to chinatown route" is certainly much shorter and quicker.... I would have felt that " he took me for a ride"!!!!!

    I agree with what you say. They should go home when they feel they can't control their emotion or go to take a cup of drink at the coffee shop. afbug will understand one day when he/she is so 'lucky' to take this kind of 'specially service' cap.

    We took a cap two to three weeks ago, this taxi driver drive very fast and break all the way. Even my children say as if they are taking the airplane but not car. He drive very fast and our heart beat also jump very fast like the speed of the taxi. We finally relief when we reached home. We are not unhappy with them because of their 'lousy' service, we only worry the safety for ourselves.

    Is normal you would feel the pain when the needle don't poke you!!

    On top of that, other road user or pedestrian is endanger....becoz of his bad mood......say some tragic happen....unnecessary life will be wasted....be considerate......loosing someone you love out of this is totally uncessary in my opinion

    Of cause there are bad sheeps in a company. I've saw many reckless drivers too but not all are taxis. Did you ever drive for 10 hours everyday, working your socks off to support family before? If you are working and something pissed you off, you take leave and go home? How i wish i can do that too. You guys need to give taxi drivers a break. Not all of them bad.

    BTW, i've experience good and bad taxi drivers and i must say only the minority are bad. I've yelled at taxi drivers before and joked with them before. Maybe i am a more forgiving person.

    i think those who have shared are only commenting on those who have been unpleasant. no one is ranting that all taxi drivers are bad.

    and once again, just because someone had a bad day doesn't give them the right to take it out on someone else.

    dude, join the service/sales/customer service industry. having a lousy day at work is the norm. and yeah, i can't take leave and go home, but i still have to swallow it, and smile at the next person i attend to.

    hey, sorry if it came across alittle harsh. didn't mean it to be. but i've had my fair share of slightly off colour cabbies and it does get my goat.

    i too understand it's tough to be in the service industry..

    My brain dead liao, hence the last sentence. Lazy to think and type so many things. To be successful in the service industry, one needs passion. Long hours, low pay......nasty customers..... But there are many more positives.

    That means you sort of agree that cabby has the right to do whatever they want on the road just becoz they drive 10 hrs per day?
