From the front seat

Greetings one and all

As I mentioned in a much earlier post, I drive taxi every now and again. I had oppertunity to drive a couple times last week and have a few observations from the drivers seat.

1. Please, if you are going to bath, don't do it in colone. If you are can be detected upwind by someone with a head cold, you are wearing too much. A little goes a long way.
2. Give your driver a moment to get himself reseated (that is if he got out of the car to open your door). Let him settle in and ask where to, cause if he is ready for the answer, he can process the fastest way to get there. For the most part, we want to get you to your destination as fast as we can, so we can get our next customer.
3. If you need to pay by Credit Card or something other than cash, please let us know soonest so we can get things ready while the car is stopped at a light.
4. If you need to dash into the store to get something, don't expect us to turn off the meter. Some of us will but this is our time you are useing, therefore, the meter stays on.
5. Say hello to us. A great many of us like the job just for the fact we get to talk to lots of people. I love telling stories about this that and the other thing.
6. If there is something you want to know about, ask us. There is a pretty good chance that we have been there, eaten there, or have had another customer tell us that place serves a great rack of lamb. 

Beyond that, sit back, enjoy the ride and have a happy day
