Tonight was like out of a story book, so simple so soft. No problems. Life was good to me. It snowed a foot last night, so tonight the roads were awkward. There is this documentary called "The Good the Bad and the Ugly" it's about driving and the psychology behind it. I've driven more then the average 25 year old but when I was younger I was a reckless driver. Now I see reckless behavior and I'm an old impatient man that wants to control the road. You can't control it aggressively, it's a defensive maneuver. Rear view mirrors. Still you can't really control any of it and that's what's so spooky about it, some people are hesitant scared drivers, Dangerous! They're the worst, Unpredictable.
I think more people should try being a Taxi driver, it's an amazing experience. I found the ride to be a time that people want to open up, at night at least when they're drunk. It's like they're medicated, sedated. Not everyone opens up , but that can show a lot about who the person is as well. A psychologists dream "The Taxi Driver." I Love psychology everyone has it. Tonight there was this guy in my car that told me to drive to the lux Burger place, I was like Delux Burger on 142nd and 96th He said "I don't know, but yeah go to the delux Burger place." There is only one of them in the city. They were a cool couple, relaxed. It was a pleasant ride and when we got there they gave me a decent tip. Then they got out and as I was about to drive away they tapped on my window and said "this isn't the right place I guess we're going to The Lux Bar and Grill. I said I was sorry even though it wasn't my fault, and drove them back for half price, I would have done it for free cause they were so cool but they insisted. Strange mistake. Lots of good people, there was this really hot chick who smashed her forehead with the corner of the door. I told her to put some snow on it but she didn't, people do that all the time and it's funny but it's also a serious hazard. The girl took it and I'm sure it hurt bad. One of my last fares was a guy I picked up in the past, he called the company and I happened to showed up,(fate) he had read my blog and he said it was creepy and that's cool I think. My Blog Is Creepy, the dude actually told me that. Tonight didn't sound creepy did it. You guys know the show Taxi Cab Confessions on HBO imagine the people who won't sign the waver that says that HBO can use the footage because it would destroy their family, business or life. I bet there is lots of those kinds of incidences, there is in my taxi too.

I've got tears in my eyes because I've only started getting to know you. :-( Your blog will be read like a beautiful novel. May you find something better to do in life and here your legacy as the taxi driver will live on. But god, I hope you stick around.

My friend got followed home a couple days ago. They duct taped her to her own bed and raped her and then robbed her house and left.
Our city is a shithole man.
I'm getting more and more terrified to live here.
Clearly need a new neighbourhood.
I miss you.

how can you have a beautiful ending without making beautiful mistakes said...

that anonymous comment was depressing. NYC cab drivers are crazy. One of them beat up a lady for using her credit card...unfortunately her boyfriend was a professional boxer. He was having a bad day...the irony of it all. May your psychology ease the psychosis of the drunken, the lonely and the decent.
