Taxi Drivers

We've had some interesting ones.

There was the guy who had the "Do you know where you are going to go when you die?" sign hanging in the back of his car, handed us two tracts, and had Christian preaching on the radio.

There was the Brazillian immigrant (he was in New York) who made us twenty minutes late for a train we should have been ten minutes early for, and it was only 10 minutes away. He got very, very, very lost. Nice guy; I felt kind of bad for him.

We also had a taxi driver in New Haven who was a Sudanese Refugee. He had an interesting and harrowing story too.

There was the lady who told us about every medical ailment she's ever had, mostly from complications from severe car wrecks (yikes!). She wasn't wearing her seat belt as she told these stories.

There was the guy with astro-turf for carpet.

There was the guy with the plastic still on the ceiling of his car.

There were two in South Korea who watched TV while driving. One of them ran red lights (we were in a busy city).

There was the guy who drove a really crappy taxi with a really fast meter. Didn't like him.

And there have been many others.
