Worst Day of Job

Today was the worst day of job, I missed gay prade again, no no I m not gay but I wanted to see what they look like, are they normal peoples or what?
anyway my friend brought an iphone from somewhere and wanted me to upgrade it to ios 4 then jailbreak it and then unlock it so he can use it with t-mobile. so I wasted 2 hours on that iphone before going to work.
went to JFK. got a fare in half an hour but those were 2 spanish speaking ladies going to affinia garden on e64 st. they gave me no tip. next while a friend of mine was getting a lot of job I didnt get any until e28 st when a guy wanted to go to LGA, took him and fare was $25.57 he only gave me $25.00 I didnt say anything as I did tell him what was the amount but he seemed cheap. (he was an indian guy)
anyway next was a 4 feet tall girl going to 7th ave & prospect ave in brooklyn who told me to take BQE to Prospect expy exit and she will guide me from there. once I took the exit we had this conversation.
ME: OK what exit now
Her: (Holding her friend on the phone) yeah
ME: You wana take next exit?
Her: (again holding her friend) Go straight its gona turn into prospect expy
ME: its gona turn into ocean parkway so you want to go straight to that?
Her: (holding her friend one more time) Yeah
ME: Miss this is 7th ave above us do you want to go to 7th ave or you wana go straight?
Her: (holding her friend yet another time) Yeah
Now I was fed up but saw her looking through the front so I told my self straight she said so straight ahead it is when near church ave exit she said, " i think you passed it I told you to take that exit."
Now when ppls act like that I keep quite and go back without saying a word coz its not worth it to argue. but once I took e5th st she asked me, "sir where are you going?"  I replied, " back" Now e5th becomes one way opposite there so I had to take e3 to go around when she said, " sir why dont you use your gps." I said, "ok" then she told her friend, " THIS GUY IS TAKING ME FOR A RIDE."
I braked rite there, slowed down my car turned and told her, " No I am not taking you for a ride I asked you many times you were on phone and for each of my questions you said yeah, now yeah isnt directions." she said, "but I told you to take 10th ave exit." she lied and made me a little more fraustrated. I asked, " did you hear me telling  you its gona become ocean parkway you wana go straight and you said yeah." she said, " no i didnt hear that." now I was like then how its my fault? you were on the phone not me. you told me to go straight without even listening to what I said.
anyway I turned off the metere rite there told her to pay. in the mean time she had ended her call to pay full attention to where I was taking her. she paid 2 dollar tip on top of 35 dollar ride. now who was taking the other for granted? I dropped her at her house and said good bye but she never apologized but yeah she went real quite. and didnt raised her voice or tune.
next I was fed up enough and was hungry to decided to take a break I went to JFK again. after a while got a job. a couple sat in. girl told me I am going to crown plaza on north conduit. I asked her if she had the address and she said no but go to north conduit and I will tell you.
once at the place where you can take either north conduit or belt pkwy or local road to hotels I asked her so go to north conduit? she said yes. on norht conduit I asked now where? any of the motels here on the side. I was like no god not another one. how in the hell they changed from crown plaza to any motel? I asked do you have any address so I can put in the GPS? she said no so I quickly took out the crown plaza address out of the book and entered into gps while parked in a residental area, once I was off to crown plaza when the girl said ok take us to sheraton on south conduit. I was like what the hell? now you are changing again so I asked in a calm tone. are you walking in? she said yes so I stoped again and started looking for sheraton jfk while I heard the guy its right across the street if you cant find it let me drive. I told her that I need an address so let me find via my iphone since I cant find it in the book. I did and went inside. now if you have been to that sheraton thats the worst one. you have no choice but to drop passenger off road. they dont have a drive way. once there guy jumped out while she told me pls dont stop the meter he has gone to check if they have a room available. finally in 3 minutes he came back while she paid me 5 dollar tip on top of 15 dollar fare.
next was the guy from jfk to hilton garden on w26 who talked a lot wanted me to rite off a reciept for $55 as his job was paying for the ride. and my day ended coz I had to buy some water and do an oil change and afterwards was so uneasy to work anymore and came home around 12 midnight.

E-Book Reader

I had bought an e book reader a while ago for a good friend of mine. it was an amazon kindle. the only competitor was sony digital book read so it was priced around $359 at that time. Today after Barnes & Nobles has thier own e book reader named "nook" and Borders started selling its own "kobo" we have pretty much of a e book reader war going on. kobo wifi only is around $149 and nook was priced slashed to $199 for a 3g version so did amazon slashed its price to $189 from $259 definately a huge price cut but if you plan to buy an e book reader and if you consider kindle then dont buy any of them now. amazon is set to show off a new kindle by august 2010.

From Paris With Love Movie

I loved the action in this movie but pakistani pakistani made me wonder if any of the writer director or producer was mentally sick to make it an anti pakistani movie? so rating it only 5 and yes the terrorists were pretty lame for a guy like wax normal french police could handle them easily.

Taxi Driver Appreciation Day

A beautifull girl going to astoria queens told me at the start of this year, " I really am thankful to u guys subways r not safe at night and I appreciate taxi drivers giving me ride home." When I asked her but they refuse u a lot she replied ." I understand they make more money here but I love them all"

today is taxi driver appreciation day. dont forget to appreciate us even though U had a bad experience with some of us, not all of us are alike.

on a side note I dont know what TLC was thinking to give breakfast in brooklyn? why not a dinner so every body can park freely and join?

The Wolfman

I didnt get it so 5/1
