Dear Sir or Madam, You Might Want to Add "Customer Banter" to Your Licensing Requirements

When the weekend concludes with penning a letter to the D.C. Taxi Commission informing them that they might not want their drivers telling departing passengers, “I will f*** you in the a**," one knows that they have had quite a weekend.

I really wish there was that diner they go to all the time in the film in D.C. Also, I wish that we could call all government agencies -- both federal and local -- by their nicknames, such as when the Hack commission closes down D.C. Cab and puts a sign up on the gate saying "Closed by order of the Hack Bureau." That is just priceless. Also, what was the role of that FBI guy in the film? I mean, where did he come from?!?

Last night in a cab we were joking about killing hookers and keeping their heads in our freezers. It's funny, because I know none of my friends ever have or would kill a hooker. The cab driver, however, was giggling just a little too much.

Seriously -- what is it with DC cab drivers? I've had a similar experience.

I think the zone system frees up their comfort to say whatever crosses their mind.

Dirty, dirty men... ewwww.

It would've been cool to have a funny comment for this post, but then I opened up the window and the first thing I saw was I-66's comment and I knew it was pointless to try and top that.

Did he just randomly blurt this out as you were exiting the cab?? Umm..yeah. That is a bit too much, even for DC cabbies...Do you remember the cab company--cab number? You should publish it here...the backlash might be interesting??

Hi all,
No, after ignoring me to the point of having to yell "Stop and turn here!," he then tried to scam me on the fare—$18.90 from Chinatown to Adams Morgan just because I had a friend in the cab with me and she hopped out at a stop sign a half block from my house. So I said, "You know you can't do that, what's your driver number?" He gives me a number. Then I ask him to flip down his visor because he's not displaying the license. The number on it is totally different. I call him on it and suddenly the fair is $11--exactly what it should have been in the first place. I give him a $20 and tell him to give me $9 back. He holds it in the front seat and makes me lunge over to get the change. (all while yelling at me.) Then as I'm getting out he drops the "I will ...." I wrote a letter to the cab commission and cc'd the mayor the next day. You can guess what kind of swift response I got. That's right, none. sigh.
