Bill_Wick's_Friend: Cab in Vancouver once tried to rip me off. I was on my phone in the back seat and when I looked up it was like "where the fark are you taking me? Why are we on this bridge and not that one (pointing) over there!?"After a second error I told him to turn off the meter because I wasn't paying any more than what it read. Told him that, yes I was attending a convention downtown but that the pass around my neck didnt mean I was a tourist who he could rip off. "Take me home for what shows on the meter now or I start writing letters to your boss and the provincial taxi licensing agency." He did what I said.(For those who know the city - going from Sutton Place hotel to Kits Point. Cabbie took Granville bridge and then went up to Broadway where he took a right and then another right turn all the way down Arbutus)/csb
