I company my friend back home and we took a bus. Upon reaching, I look at the time and I will be late for work if I wait for bus again. I saw a cab, flag it down and when the cab come to the junction, I told him "uncle, go straight"
Since then, his face change! Like not happy. Nvm that, about to reach, he told me that should turn left at junction as that is a "shorter" way, I shouldnt follow the bus route. I dont want to argue that much, I paid, get reciept n off to work.
I went to google just now. I trace my route, 4.2km. I trace his, 4.9km! So, his unhappiness is not that I take longer route, is that he can't make extra $ from his route! If there are not much stopping, my route reach office much faster!
Got once, Idk the route back home and cab driver take us to a longer way! Ended up paying a lot more and since then, I always know my way to point B most of the time. But I do close one eye and go by a longer route if that route seem "troublesome" even shorter.
Cab driver should have a good attitude, if I dont take his cab, I wondering how long his green light will be.
