Because 55's license plate has clearly been flagged by all DC traffic cops, I switched it up this morning and grabbed cab #158. It's a little newer (about 150,000 miles newer) and is clearly in much better shape....but I miss ol' 55.
Had my first crazy lady this morning who refused to pay the full fare because she thought I was screwing her on the meter. That got pretty unpleasant - fare was 17.95 and she paid me 15, and there were some strong words exchanged. Oh well, what's three dollars, right?
