I live in New Orleans. A cab driver, thinking I was a rube, took me and my girlfriend on a roundabout ride. I paid, I got out, I just happened to be carrying a battery operated bullhorn.

(CHHHRK) YOU ARE THE WORST CAB DRIVER IN NEW ORLEANS (CHHHRK)


The cab driver was terrified. Good times.

Atlanta, Perimiter area. Back in 2002.

I'm training people there, bored as shiat in my hotel room one night, when my DM pounds on my door, and says, "C'mon, we're going to a tiity bar!" Whatever, but it beats watching HBO...we get one of those independent "minivan" taxis to pick us up. My DM knew where it was, but not the exact address. The guy says, oh, yeah, he can take us there, ended up going in circles around it for 30 minutes, then finally "found" it. We knew he'd farked us, but paid him anyway.

Once I got back to AL, I'd borrow a friend's cellphone and call him, asking to pick me up somewhere. Wash Rinse Repeat. He fell for it several times, because I'd use a different phone every time. He'd call back when he got to his pickup and no one was there, sometimes I wouldn't answer, sometimes I would and say, "hold on just a few more minutes".

He eventually blocked all calls from my area code.

WillyChase: ras django: Fark Rye For Many Whores: I shiat in the cab when this happens.

i farted in a cab last week because he made me late, so i'm getting a kick.

(eggy farts. mmmmmm).

Speaking of eggs, I dropped a carton of them Saturday morning. Decided to eat all 10 of the broken ones rather than let them go to waste. I will never eat more than 2 eggs in a sitting ever again, my bowels felt like they were going to quake themselves right out of my body.


No man can eat 50 eggs.

letrole: I don't tip strangers ever. Tips are for future service, not a pat on the head for a good job today. The rule of thumb is that if I expect to see you again, I'll give a tip, even if you were shiate.


Tipping is a religion.

Ostman: What's interesting to me are the number of people making reference to "calling the police" in this thread, as a method of calling out scumbag taxi drivers.

Is this just a way of escalating the argument, or are the tips legally required now in some areas? Pretty sure it's the former, but so many have said it I just want to make sure, in case I ever need to get a taxi in the States.

/Not American.
//You tip for everything.
///Also, why tip bartenders for taking a bottle out of the fridge, taking the cap off and handing it to you?


because they could ignore your swill drinking ass to pour for someone else that appreciates the asshole management a bartender has to do.

That reminds me, how much do people tip cops? I always figured 20% was fair (or at least $5). But you should see the looks some cops give me when I put the money in their hands. Not enough?

I have only taken a cab once in my life. The driver did end up taking a wrong turn onto a one-way street, which forced him to go over a bridge and then circle around through the maze of one-way streets on the other side so he could get back to the side of the river I needed to be on. As soon as he realized his mistake, he turned off the meter and apologized, and left the meter off for half the ride after he'd gotten back to the correct side of the river.

/guess I got one of the good ones
//I tipped him generously

Seriously you guys come in here and argue about the exact same shiat, have the same prepared remarks every time. It's weird. The only thing that's different is the article and the first four comments.

If you are trying to be ironic, stop, just stop.

Why? Moo is 100% correct. At this point in time you can pretty much write your own tipping thread, cycling thread, gun thread, etc. This shiat is so predictable any more.



Including the people who whine about how predictable it is...

As for the tip I'd still tip unless I was pretty sure the mistake was intentional. I am nice, or if you prefer a sucker, like that.

Last time I got a cab ride, I tipped the guy $5.something on a $14.something ride. He looked at the $20 like I'd stiffed him. I later learned that the driver is the head of public services in our podunk town. That's life in the sticks.

The last time a cab driver took me the wrong way it was from somewhere I had taken a cab from a hundred times. I know the route and I know exactly how much it costs. He took a wrong turn and I had to correct him. The normal cab ride is $10.60 every time so I usually give the driver $15. By the time he corrected and got me home the ride was $18.50. I gave him $11 and told him why he tried to argue until I pointed out that the house next door to mine is the manager of his cab company and I was more than happy to knock on his door. I was bluffing though because he didn't live there anymore and I knew for a fact he was on vacation in Ethiopia.

Once had a cab pick me and 3 friends up in the pouring rain. We only needed to travel half a mile, but the downpour was so bad and we had girls with us (a rarity for me, as a Farker), so we opted for this instead. I sat up front and told the cabby where to go. He got there right away, but then proceeded to argue with me about whether we were close enough to the building we were trying to get to. He drove around for another half mile or more trying to find a way to get us closer to the building. We all just kept telling him no, it's fine, just let us out here. By the end of it, of course, we were just thankful to be at our destination, paid and got the heck out of there. We didn't tip. Ironically, had he simply dropped us off at the first place we asked, we would've given him the same amount of money for having to pick us up in the rain, and he could've pocketed the rest as tip.

Reminds me of the time I went to a club in Hollywood and they automatically added a 20% tip onto the price of a single drink from the bar. The bartender got snooty with me when I didn't leave an additional tip. $14 for a single rum & coke was effing ridiculous to start with, I'm not leaving an additional tip on top of the $2.80 they automatically added to my tab.

I wouldn't tip the waiter that brought me the wrong thing either. A tip is extra: you get it if you do a good job. You don't do a good job, you don't get a tip. Simple as that. If tips were mandatory, it would be part of the bill.
