Crappy cabbie experience #2 of my NYC experience. Paraphrased except for the QUOTES.
Me: Uh, you went the wrong way.
Him: I was going to go to xyz and then turn onto abc.
Me: Yeah...well it's faster (and more direct) to go the other way.
Him: "So whatchoo want me to do? Kill myself over it?"
I was so pissed I left the cab (and walked 12+ blocks in 24 degree weather back home).
What I should have said?
Uh, no...but you could NOT be an ASSHOLE over it.
