I just fucking LOVE when people fucking endanger me, just to earn less than 5 dollars.

I am so fucking angry.

My friends and I were walking around the city. We decided we wanted to go home. I have a massive blister on my foot, and my friend had worked all day, so we decided to take a taxi to one of the major train stations.

This train station has a well lit, popular front entrance, and a isolated, deserted back entrance, that turns out, that is closed at night. (We couldn't see that it was closed from the back of the car, but the driver obviously could.)

Guess which one he drops us off at? My fare would have been a few dollars cheaper if he dropped us off were he should have, but hey, we all know less than five dollars is worth more than my safety.

He absolutely speeds off, not allowing us to get directions to where it's actually open/get back in the car and get dropped off in a safer area. (fuck, I would have been willing to pay for the trip back to where we actually wanted to be)

So my friend and I were in the middle of fuck knows where. We try to figure out which way we had to walk. We got onto a rather empty road and started walking... and walking, and walking, then a car comes up and slows right down, next to us. Yeah, I was shitting myself. :| (okay, not literally.)

Eventually they left us be, we realized we weren't going the right way, and had to turn back.

Luckily, we passed a parked taxi, and asked the guy how to get where we wanted. Turns out, we have to go through a construction site, down a tunnel, pass a busway etc etc etc

But seriously. They fucking tell girls to take taxis, instead of walking late at night, because 'it's safer'. Yeah, dropping people off in absolutely deserted, isolated places is not safe.

It would have been safer not taking the taxi in the first place, because I would have stuck to well lit, popular places. Not places I could scream blue murder at the top of my lungs, and have no one hear.

Ever since I watched the first episode of BBC Sherlock, I've stopped trusting cab drivers. I suggest you do the same.

You should get a Dwemer sphere to follow you around, like I did. It will protect you with a sword and crossbow. You can find one in Kagrumez, if you can get past the trials. Only one of them is friendly, though, the rest WILL try to kill you.

On second thought, it might be safer to leave it. If you can actually get it without being horribly killed by magical automatons, you probably don't need the protection. Cool to have around though. Everyone is like "look out! a dwarven sphere is right behind you!" and I'm like "it's cool dude, he's with me" and they're all like "NO WAI" and I'm like "YA WAI"

Yup. Back to your post, though, I would find the number of the taxi company and say that you were put in danger by your cab driver. It's really not safe for anyone to be walking by themselves at night in the city, and while I hate to say it, it's especially true for females. It shouldn't be that way, but it is. People are sick.

I know! A dwarven sphere! Much better than a guard dog. Not sure how it compares to the armoured troll, though. Well, it smells better.

That's why I take buses. D8; It's a 2 1/2 hour trip back and forth between my college and home, but I'd rather take that then call a cab. "OTL Unless it's my dad's cab.

:lol: I'm pretty used to wandering around in lonely places at night, because I'm stupid like that and no example to follow, but I always hate it when cars slow down right next to you for no damn reason. You can't see shit when their lights are on.

Thing is, I literally had about 500 dollars cash on me. my friends and I had been at a fancy restaurant, and they only accept one bill. So I pay on my card and get my friends to pay me back.

I've had them add $10 on my cab fare and justify it as transaction fee. Cab drivers in this country are fucking dodgy

I wouldn't have even gotten out of that cab to begin with and demanded he dropped me off at a safer spot.

And it's always hard to know what kind of taxi driver you're gonna get. I sometimes have to take one home from the bus station (or wait a long time in the cold for another bus). I find they're either too talkative or I wonder if they even have a tongue.


I always thought you were a guy for some reason...

See, he dropped us at the back entrance. before 8pm, I would have been able to get in (I didn't know it closes at 8pm) I couldn't see that the roller door was down when I was still in the car.

When we got out, he sped away before we could get back in or ask for directions.

Report him.
I hate entitled taxi drivers, that's why I never take them.
This one time the guy didn't quite know how to get to my home, so whenever I gave him directions, he said I was wrong and took other turns.
BITCH I KNOW WHERE I LIVE AND HOW TO GET THERE :stare:

the last time i took a taxi he dropped me off 20 meters in front of the hotel IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY STREET. he wouldn't even help me get my luggage out of the back, literally telling me to get out cause he couldn't get closer to the hotel.

needless to say i didn't pay his fare, since i was willing to wait and pay for the extra time it would've taken to actually get to the hotel.
if ever in seattle, do not take the green taxi line.

I am going to,but from now on, I'm going to only walk and use buses and trains, unless it's absolutely necessary. Like, I think I'd rather fall down walking than take a taxi.


Nope. I emailed them 3 times. I gave up. :grump:
