Drivers, crazy, favorites

Crazy week is behind me now. At least I think it is! This past weekend I was so swamped! Busy, busy, busy! When I talked to other drivers they said it was a slow weekend. Sometimes it is just being in the right place at the right time but most of the time I am the unlucky one.

Here are a few things that happened over the weekend.

A young man flagged me and wanted me to know that he prefers LyftLine over taking a taxi. (Why did he flag a taxi then??? huh?) He said it only costs him $6 for his ride to work but it would cost him in a taxi $12. Okay, a savings but he sometimes has to share the car with 2 to 3 other people. Good for the driver but according to the young man it is horrible for the passengers because it should only be a 10 minute drive it can and almost always does take up to 1 hour. Yep, that is a savings. I guess only paying $6 for a an hour ride to work is cheap for him. I have always thought my time was more precious than the amount I pay for something. It is kind of like when you drive all over town grocery shopping to save money but you spend way more in gas and time. Not a savings for me.

In the Marina District you can normally find douchebag men and bitchy women. Well, on Friday night at about 1:30 am, three men were doing pushups in the street. Why do men do things like that? Crazy stupid.

Trying to get me some good karma, I give someone a free ride about once or twice a week. I really cannot afford to give people free rides but I do it anyway because I cannot afford to help others any other way. I do what I can.

Are you obsessed with the Royal Family? I know a little. I had a lady in my taxi who knew ALL kinds of interesting things about the Royal Family. She was fun to talk too! I learned so much and I think I am going to start trying to learn what I can about the Royal Family. So much intrigue.

Saturday is 98 degrees in San Francisco! 98!!! It never gets that hot in the city! Never! The wind typically blows cold air or the marine layer comes in after dark but it stayed very warm until about 10 pm and then it cooled off quite a bit but only went down to 68 degrees. Also it was the night of the Naked Sparkly Penis Guy in the Castro. Passengers from Texas asked if it was legal in California or San Francisco. Nope, it is not legal but if the man has his penis covered it is okay and he has to put something down when he sits down. Not many people go “mostly naked” in the city.

Front seat drivers are my favorite! Haha! I had a guy sitting in the front seat of my taxi and his family sat in the back seats but every time someone cut me off, made me stop quickly or maneuver to get around someone, the guy in the front seat would do a kind of karate chop motion with his hands, not saying anything. I was much less stressed than the guy in the front seat but he never said anything to me. I guess it was okay.

Everyone thinks taxi drivers are very aggressive drivers but I don’t think they compare to Uber and Lyft drivers. I feel they do not follow the legal way to drive because they have to make so much money an hour to make ends meet. Cutting people off, beeping if you are not moving fast enough, illegal lane changes, turning quickly in front of people and stopping when and where they want to stop! If you get into my taxi you will be treated like family. I drive like a normal person. I will listen to you if you want me to go a certain way but I will not drive like a crazy person for no one.

Best ride of the night by far happened at about 2:15 am! I was flagged by a guy who came up to my passenger window and in a deep quiet voice to ask me if I would take him and his friend (who was standing by a tree on the sidewalk) to Oakland. I kind of was a little spooked. He seemed to take a little offense but started to joke with me. I said I would take them where they needed to go as long as they were nice to me, then the smiles happened. We chatted and joked all the way to Oakland. I asked what they did, one was a musician and an artist and the other one was a radio sound guy. The only sound guy I know is Anderson from the podcast of LoveLine, so I asked if they listen to podcasts. The radio guy asked me to name 5 of my top favorite podcasts. I was on the spot and couldn’t even name five. I listen to so many podcasts, I had to take them off of my iPhone. One of the podcasts I did say was Snap Judgement. If you haven’t heard this podcast, I would suggest you listen to it! It is all about different people and the judgments they have made, not necessarily good or bad. I love all the different stories the people tell plus the host is from Michigan and lives in Oakland now. Well, as we were driving along I asked if anyone had plans for the weekend and the sound guy said he was going to papier-mâché fruit. I was a little shocked at his answer but I went along with it. I asked him what happens to the fruit when it hardens. He said he has power tools to get the fruit out then he eats them. Since he has been papier-mâchéing the fruit he has been forced to eat different kind of fruit. He takes the papier-mâché fruit and hangs them all over his ceiling in his living room. I asked if he had have papier-mâchéd a dragon fruit and he said no because it is too spiky. Funny. He said he had mostly pears because he loved pears. I asked what about vegetables, he said he buys them and eats them too fast to use papier-mâché on them. Well, we made it to his place and I still had to take the musician/artist home. As soon as the sound guy got out of the taxi the other guy said, you know that podcast you were talking about, Snap Judgement? I said yes, he said, you know that Pat Mesiti-Miller is the guy you just dropped off. He works on Snap Judgement. Why didn’t he say anything to me? The musician/artist guy said that Pat really enjoys “real” conversations with people and he was really enjoying our conversation. I really did enjoy the conversation but I had to ask if Pat really did papier-mâché fruit and his friend said, no. That made the ride so much better! I did make too much of a fuss about Pat, I felt sorry about not chatting with the musician/artist much more. I did apologies because I am not normally “start struck” but I really was. Crazy as it sounds. I did post on twitter AdultFriendFinder enjoyed the ride. What is the new papier-mâché fruit for the weekend? No response yet to my tweet. Not hoping for much but it would be nice.

Getting a little sleepy right now so I will add more tomorrow night. Thank you again for reading my blog and I love you very much! Good night!

Taxi drivers in my town are fine. It's the bus drivers that seem to be more aggressive.
