Your Actions tell What kind of Person YOU are.

Yesterday: A girl hailed me on 9th and 72nd. asked me thompson st & spring st. as soon as I took the 65 street transverse. she kept quite when I didnt turn on 9th she kept quite when I was in the turning lane into 65 st crossing but she went on after I was in the park.
her," we are going to west side. why are you taking this? you dont have to go across park."
me," you are going to thompson & spring, right?"
her,"yes, but thats on west side. I know, I take cab every morning."
me," ok how you would have gone?"
her," you could have taken 10th ave you could take west side highway down but you dont have to go across park to east."
me laughing," westside highway is simply out of your way and do you know 10th ave goes uptown?"
her," well you could have taken 9th ave or you could take 8th ave or you could take 7th ave"
me,"what? 9th at this hour? you know 9th has tunnel traffic and 8th ave goes uptown and 7th has times sq? nobody wants to go through times sq."
her," no times sq is on 8th ave."
me,"miss times sq is on 7th ave."
when she insisted in an aggressive tone. I pulled over as soon as I was out  on 5th ave and told her ride is free if she walks out right now and take another cab. or better she can ask the cop in front of us. she refused to ask the cop and agreed to continue on.
at washington sq park I told her that thompson should not be on our left if she was right. she said she had mixed up 9th & 7th ave. still didnt apologise. gave me 2 dollars on a 21 dollars ride.

today I took a couple they had a child, a girl of 3 or 4. they were going to 13th st & 2nd ave. once on van wyck guy asked me
him,"can you take williams burgh bridge?"
me,"no, why? its out of your way."
him,"out of the way." in a surprised tone and added,"I can give you the toll money."
me,"haha no you can give it to the government."
him,"the government."
once at his destination he used his credit card. gave zero tip. I thanked him twice. question? would he ask the same had he had been going on meter and not on a flat fare? clearly he wouldnt dare. well I understand some peoples simply cant afford it though I am glad he atleast paid the fare.

Cabbie Accused of Rape

A few nights ago, I think Tuesday night I had a row of words with another cab driver. he squeezed his cab between mine and another cab on 3rd ave, basically he came from parking lane to infront of my cab and I had to struggle to save hitting him. on the next light I asked him what he was doing and whats wrong with him? he started smart and abused, called names but thing made me wonder was he had a white female passenger in the back and he said & I quote, " I am gona f*** this woman and I am gona come fuck you." I wondered what the poor woman has to do with any of it? I tried to tell the woman but her window was rolled up and she seemed upset with her driver's behavior. Well we went down our ways and I turned to 58th street to upper level queens borough bridge. he came back and again as we were cruising he waived as if he is going to f***. at the jackson ave light he again tried to say something but I managed to make that light but wasnt so lucky on the next one. now he again rolled down his window and said the same thing and I quote. " I am going to f*** this woman in queens village and I will come back for you in queens."

Now I wouldnt pay him much attention as I know most of the peoples from my origion are indeed a lion in their own dunghill. but a news made me wonder if its the same guy as or knows the guy in this incident.

this guy seems a sikh, the guy I had words with was definitely a punjabi & probably a sikh. he was clean shaved and had no turban but looks can be deceiving?

I am undecided wether to inform police about my little incident and would this be any help or police would just think I am trying to give trouble to another cabbie from whom I had faced road rage? I will tip off police If only they had mentioned what kind of cab she took? hybrid or non hybrid? model etc as I definitely dont want to tip off any innocent person.
