They Can’t All Be Samson…

Sadly, DC Cabbies have a bad reputation. Worse still, it seems they still deserve it, according to Talking Budgie:

I politely asked the cab driver where we were going because this didn’t seem to be the usual route. He said to me in really abusive tone “Well where do you think you are going?” I responded that we were going to (Cross street) and Independence SE near Eastern Market. He yelled back at us that “(Cross street) and Independence is not Eastern Market. Give me some respect. I am not your boyfriend. Shut up in my cab.” He then proceeded to curse us for about 5 minutes.

Yikes. Fortunately, there are four Taxi Commission hearings in the next 10 days. They start tonight in Ward 4, then in Ward 5 on Thursday, then in Ward 8 on the 10th and Ward 1 on the 12th. Help make DC Cabs a better place for us all, go speak up about your bad cab experiences.

    Or better yet, demand meters in the F’ing cabs.
