Cab drivers need to learn to shut the fuck up. That's about all I got out of this.
They also need to learn to bathe.
Tru' dat, fo' shizzle.
They also need to figure out what paying with a credit card means. That way, I don't have to remind them a thousand times that I said that's how I was paying. You are not getting cash, you pathetic pile of shit. We discussed this before I got in the fucking cab. Oh, okay, go ahead and make some 'calls' on your cell phone to make it seem like I've complicated this entire process. Yeah, here you go. Here's my card. And here's your tip. Oh, I wrote zero? Imagine that.
1) Most of my cab rides in Seattle have been pleasant.
2) I don't understand how people can not have any sort of cash on them. I'm not a luddite, I love my debit card, but damn... having alternative sources to cover all monetary transactions just seems like a simple and smart thing to do. I mean, not even having a $20 in your wallet? Crazy.
I never need cash. I'm either using my company card, my card, or my debit card. This way I constantly have my every-financial move recorded online for my record. Then I can import that information into whatever .xls I use to monitor the statistics of how I spend my money, when I spend my money, and where I should to reduce my spending.
Makes sense to me.
Fair enough, but it seems like the time savings difference for adding in a cash item vs scanning, processing, signing would be relatively neutral. But that would also mean you'd have to keep track of those purchases through receipts which is a pain in it's own right.
I've just had too many situations where, for whatever reason, cash has been my very good friend when my cards just didn't work. For me, it's all about convenience and piece of mind.
I'll go back to my cave now, lol.
good article... if only ppl would have gotten beyond the first paragraphs about the cabbie...
I read the entire thing, no name.
Are you ready to explain why you think I did not?
Guess not. Go figure.
