hi.. i m a frequent taxi person due to work reasons.. so share my thoughts..
taxi driver nowadays as some r retrenched manager or director.. some retirees or part time cabby for fun n some have office full-time job n drive e cabby for fun n extra income...n they interact wif all kind of pple everyday.. so they r veri knowlegable n learned
if you r lucky, meet one who will share with u veri good n useful knowledge.. try to cheer u up if yr face is black...
if u r unlucky, u meet wif those egoistic who tink their views r always right n braggat.. tt is a pain in the neck..anyone know how to deal wif them.. i scared to provoke them.. coz my life is in their hand.. i m in their cabby
haha.. e lyk photographer as a taxi driver however seems.....

Had an interesting conversation with a cabbie. Saw me carrying a huge black bag (after my reservist training), asking me whether which unit i was from Blah blah blah...then he mentioned that he was the first few batch of commandos or infantry sent to Indonesia and Malaysia for recce mission to flush out the communist.

Actually u could tell which are those forced to become cabbies due to circumstances that forced them outta their high paying jobs.

Of cos, professional braggats usually stray from a topic to another, drive wildly (and horribly) and speak rather bad English punctuated with Hokkien expletives (putting all ur OCs and RSMs to shame).
Of cos, the best way to stop these cabbies is not to talk to them, keep a frown etched on ur face permanently, sleep during ur journey home and occupy the rear passenger seat.
