Another Taxi Story
I could probably start a whole blog just about taxi adventures. Heck, we could make it a collective blog and all of us bloggers in Beirut could add our stories. I’m sure it would be endless entertainment.
Anyway, I thought I’d share this tidbit from this evening. So I took a service that took me the LONG way to Hamra from Downtown. First he dropped off another passenger then he zigzagged every which way en route to Hamra. He made a zigzag motion with his hand and then mumbled something about Ahmadinejad. (OK, maybe that was the issue. Maybe not.) So we get to my destination on Hamra Street and when I hand him 2,000LL suddenly he says “two service” and then makes the zigzag motion again as if to say I should pay him MORE because he took me a ridiculously long way. Sorry my friend, but if anything I should pay you LESS because you made me go out of my way. I just got out of the car and left him with the 2,000LL.
