Taking Taxis

21

246 Spring Street please. A place called Parlor. 

What are the cross streets?

Maybe it’s presumptuous, but I always feel like the person driving should know where to go. Especially when said person is getting paid

Let me see…
 dsddf
(Looks at GPS) Oh there is traffic, it will take 15 minutes
 dfdsfs
My phone says four minutes. My phone must be lying to me! 
 dfdsf
You think I’m lying to you?
 dsfsd
No, no I don’t think that! I was actually serious. I think my phone is lying. 
 dfdsfs
I know one way to go that will be fast
 dfsfa
I really don’t think you’re lying. I was actually just telling my friend Cleo about the word liar. I wouldn’t call you a liar. Unless of course I knew you had lied. I’ve only called two people a liar. Both happen to be men. But I definitely don’t think all men lie. Or that you were lying about the traffic. There might be traffic. I don’t know. 
 dfda
I want to get you there so I can pick up more people because that’s how I get paid
 fdsfsa
I thought if I had a really long trip then that was good too?  
 dfsa
(Silence)
 fdsfsa
I really don’t think you’re a liar. I just want to say that again.
 fdsfas
Okay. Not a problem.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen while driving? I’ve always wanted to ask. I really wanted to write a book about that. It would just be taxi drivers telling stories. It’d be the nosiest book ever 
 fdsfsadf
You wrote it?
 fsdfas
Well then I realized I’d have to take a lot of cabs and so no, but then I thought I’d make an instagram for whenever I was riding. It’d be like humans of new york, but taxi cab drivers only  
 dfsads
White girls making out a lot with each other
asdfas 
I don’t think I would make a book about white girls making out a lot. Do you think white girls make out with each other a lot?  
 sdfsadf
That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. It happens quite a bit
 dfdsgds
Really?  
 dfgdfg
I’m telling the truth
 dsfgsd
Oh gosh you still think I think you’re lying. When I say really I’m really just agreeing  
 sdfgdfg
We can’t get out on spring, but I’ll drop you close. Maybe your boyfriend can meet you?
 dfgdfg
I’m just going to a party.  
 dfgdsf
Okay
 sfgsd
Have you ever been in love?
 sdfgdf
Yes, with my wife. We celebrate 22 years next week
 sfdgsd
You’ve been married for as long as I’ve been alive kind of  
 sdfgsd
She is a good woman. We met in India
 sfdgdf
I know she is. I bet she’s a true diamond with a kind heart
 sfgsd
She will wait up for me to come home
 dfgd
That’s the cutest thing I’ve heard all night. I’m into it. That’s my new phrase   
 sfgsd
It’s not this street, but the next. Just make a right and then a left
 sdfgsd
Can’t you just turn down this street? 
 sdfgsdg
There is construction. I cannot do it
 sdfgsd
Really?
 sgfgs
I cannot-
 sdfgsd
No I was agreeing again. Like ‘really? oh okay!’ It’s confusing. I should stop saying that  
 sfgsd
Have a good night
 sfgsd
You too! A left then a right? 
 sfdgsd
A right then a left. Can your boyfriend meet you?
 sfgsfd
I don’t have a boyfriend. I’m just going to a party  
 sfgsd
Goodnight mam. Have a safe night.
fgfd 
 I then got out the cab and randomly see my friend Justin who gives me the biggest hug in the world.  I wonder if this made the taxi driver happy or confused. He waved out the window as he drove away.
