Trust Issues

-Warning lights illuminated on the dashboard.

-Brakes grinding.

-Two-way radio volume cranked to 11.

-Credit card machine that “just” failed.

-Suspension transplanted from a Paris-Dakar Rally racer.

-Complimentary second-hand smoke from the last trip.

-Trunk full of junk.

-Dispatcher advising that the taxi will get there when it gets there.

This is hardly a comprehensive list, just a few things that I vividly remember experiencing with regularity before Uber and Lyft dramatically improved my life.

If a taxi marketing expert thinks that vetting by the FBI is what will save them, all I can say is Godspeed.
