Dodgy Taxi Drivers
So I have mentioned this in one of the previous post where the cab driver complained about short rides.
I usually work till quite late and my company has a policy where they will pay for cab rides home after certain hours. Naturally it became very frequent for me to take cab rides home which is roughly a 7-8km ride. Would cost about 25 to 30 depending on traffic condition
Recently I started encountering cab drivers who did not complain about the distance but was obviously not happy about it because they would pretend to use their left hands to cover the metre, reset it the moment the cab stopped and quote an inflated price. Due to me being frugal in my personal life I have the habit of looking at the metre during the ride. So far, it has been the inflated price is +10.
I’m quite annoyed by the behaviour. But at the same time I don’t have the guts to confront them on the spot because to be frank those that behave like that tend to look a lil unfriendly and I don’t like confrontations in general.
So what would you do to avoid or prevent behaviours like this.
